Last week, we discussed the rapidly approaching digital economy and outlined the nine new agenda items for CEOs. We also drilled down into the 3 CEO agenda items related to new customer requirements. In this blog, we’ll explore the three new capabilities needed to compete in the digital economy, the new critical infrastructure, and new ecosystems.
The digital economy has been eagerly anticipated for years, but felt to be in the distant future. As we look towards 2020, we can see the digital economy appear on the horizon. By 2023, products and services from digitally transformed enterprises will account for more than half of the global GDP, according to IDC’s research, signalling digital supremacy.
With the onset of digital supremacy just 3 years away, CEOs will quickly find themselves running a new type of organization. And with that new organization comes a new agenda.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to transform the way that marketing professionals work, and how organizations target, engage and connect with customers and prospects. Just like how marketing automation created new tasks and job functions, AI will revolutionize the way marketing is performed – and dictate a new set of job needs and skills.
The amount of data that organizations collect and use to inform their strategies and power applications is truly astounding; IDC expects that the amount of data created in 2023 will reach over 100ZB (one trillion gigabytes) or 10 times more than the amount of data created in 2014. Organizations need to make sure that their data is secure, which is why the data protection industry is so important. Data production as a service (DPaaS) solutions are the fastest growing segments of the data protection industry.
