My colleague Jorge Lopez is leading what has become a major focal point for Gartner Research: what to do about becoming a Digital Business – or stated another way, if you don’t start thinking of yourself as a digital business you will soon be out of business….
With all the news about collapsing ice shelves and global warming Armageddon, I wonder what impact the future of a digital business strategy can have. In fact, this coupling of people, business, and things may be our only hope – drastic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions through automated routing of autonomous vehicles, closer management of energy utilization, etc. etc. I am sure there are ways we are just beginning to think about, in terms of how the internet of things can affect the global climate when businesses become fully digitized – hopefully positively.
From a practitioner’s POV, we’ll be introducing “Digital Business” topics at our upcoming Catalyst Conference .
As strategy becomes tactics, you’ll see more “digital business” how-to for the IT practitioner coming out of our Gartner for Technical Professionals research in 2015.
Before it’s too late.
