Businesses rightly see the latest technologies as crucial to maximizing competitive advantage – that’s why IDC say spending on digital transformation will reach $1.7 trillion in 2019 (42% up on 2017). Some of these efforts will succeed, but others will fail because true transformation requires more than technology. Who would you bet on: the business with the smartest things or the one with the smartest people?
Tomorrow’s most successful businesses, truly intelligent enterprises, will have both.
Intelligent technology supports and connects people and partners as well as linking a company’s information. It empowers people to think differently; to make more successful decisions; and to do more with less – wherever they are and whatever tools they’re using. It puts intelligence everywhere. It is the infrastructure that helps people process information and ideas.
How do you know if your organization is ready to be an intelligent enterprise capable of taking full competitive advantage of the information currently locked in your applications? What is your Intelligent Enterprise Quotient? And how well equipped is your business to take intelligent advantage?
One clever idea: Join Meet the Boss, Avanade and a select group of senior business and innovation leaders for this unique evening, as we learn from organizations embracing today’s Digital Business Applications and discuss proven ways to power competitive advantage in the intelligent enterprise.
