The Next Steps in Digital Transformation

How small and midsize companies are applying technology to meet key business goals

Digital transformation is directly related to the changing digital economy with individuals,
businesses, and society becoming interconnected in real-time, supported by technology.
Think of the advanced capabilities that are changing the nature of business:

» Hyper-connectivity — the result of anytime/anywhere communications
» Unlimited computing power available though diverse platforms
» Cloud computing, with easy access to hosted software and services
» The proliferation of sensors and mobile devices, providing new and continuous streams of information as well as ways of accessing them
» Advances in cybersecurity that support reliable access and use of key information, minimizing internal and external vulnerability

Almost all small businesses (firms with 10-99 employees) and midsize firms (with 100-999 employees) have some of these digital transformation resources in place: collaboration software, powerful computing and communications resources, cloud computing. But effective deployment and integration are needed to bring your firm to the next level of business performance.
