According to Gartner, “all industries in all geographies are undergoing radical digital disruption — a “digital dragon” that is potentially very powerful if tamed but a destructive force if not.” A three part response is needed to tame the digital dragon including renovating the core, building bimodial capabilities, and creating digital leadership. Renovating the core includes renovating core enterprise IT for a digital future including infrastructure, applications such as ERP, information, and sourcing. Shital will share a case study of a growing manufacturing firm strategically renovating core applications and discuss how and why you should prepare for the digital future.
