Helping Organizations Thrive In The Digital World
Advancements in digital technology – AI, Big Data, Chatbots, Cloud, IoT, Mobile, Social Media (to name just a few) – have completely changed the way businesses operate, transformed the way they communicate and forever altered the relationships that exist between organizations, suppliers and customers. In effect, digital has not only transformed business – but it has transformed society itself.
Digital disruption has both positive and negative consequences depending on your willingness to embrace it. A stubborn approach and a desire to stick to the ‘tried and tested’ means that eventually digital evolution will rock your business to it’s very core – and your business is very unlikely to be robust enough to survive.
Consider how digital disruption now impacts and shapes both business and society:
- The rising popularity of buying and selling goods online is making the ‘physical shop or retail storefront’ more and more redundant as each year goes by. Online retail sales worldwide were recently estimated at over US$ 1.59 trillion, growing at over 15% Y-o-Y. (Source: www.emarketer.com). In 2017, an estimated 1.66 billion people worldwide purchase goods online. During the same year, global e-retail sales amounted to 2.3 trillion U.S. dollars and projections show a growth of up to 4.48 trillion U.S. dollars by 2021.
- Learning and development opportunities now abound for anyone, at any time, in any place – all accessed online and often at no cost. Time and space constraints have been eliminated and education is no longer only for those who can afford it or those who meet academic criteria (Khan Academy, Coursera, edX).
- The way we ‘work’ is changing. Finding and hiring highly skilled workers to complete specific tasks and projects through platforms like Upwork.com and Wework.com.
- The rising popularity of ‘apps’ that offer real solutions in virtually any field to individuals and businesses.
- Barriers to entry on many markets have been reduced if not completely removed.
Digitally enabled businesses and digital service providers are far more nimble, can change or alter their offering quickly, often offer greater convenience and variety, can serve wider markets and also have significantly lower cost structures than traditional businesses. When combined, these advantages create serious disruption to traditional business.
