Today, High Tech companies are operating within a market and economy experiencing the most profound changes in our history. According to a 2013 McKinsey Study, more than 60% of CEO's expect 15-50% of their earnings growth in the next 5 years to come from technology-enabled business innovations. On the flip side, 40% of those executives surveyed also worry that their organizations will not keep pace with technology change and lose their competitive edge.
These changes unveil new areas of opportunity for High Tech companies to innovate and grow in four key areas:
Hyper-personalizing the Customer Experience
Engaging & empowering the Workforce of the Future
Planning, optimizing and running a Real Time business
