Over the past decade, the global digital revolution has yielded numerous advancements including wireless internet, smartphones, e-commerce, and wearable technology. These innovations have become commonplace throughout the developed world and are increasingly visible in emerging markets. Digital transformation is happening at a rapid pace, and sooner than organizations might think, many of the technologies that companies currently consider to be emerging, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, would be pervasive.

The rapid advances in digital technology are redefining the society.


According to the study conducted by IDC, two-thirds of the global 2000 companies’ CEO are anticipated to shift their focus from traditional, offline strategies to modern digital strategies to improve the customer experience with approximately 34% of the organizations believing to fully adopt digital transformation within a year. In 2018, the net global spending on the digital transformation was approximately US$ 1 trillion and is anticipated to increase to over US$ 2 trillion by 2022. Most of the digital transformations are driven by growth opportunities, followed by increased competitive pressure and new regulatory standards. Companies that get significant value on their digital investments invest 33% more than other companies in technology, processes, operating models, and the ways of working that will drive their digital supremacy. On average, higher-maturity organizations’ digital transformation efforts are twice as broad as those at lower-maturity organizations (maturity is defined as the level of benefit derived from digital transformation efforts). Digital transformation is a top-down initiative, often led with a vision from the C-suite. CIOs and CEOs are most often reported as owning or sponsoring digital transformation initiatives – 28% and 23%, respectively.
