Digital technologies (e.g. Blockchain, IoT, 5G) are altering how people and businesses interact. They have the power to create unprecedented levels of industry dislocation and to fundamentally change business rules and economics. To succeed in this disruptive environment, organizations will need to leverage the power of digital technologies and rethink their business and operating model in order to offer compelling new experiences, establish new focus, build new expertise and devise new ways of working. IBM calls this process Digital Reinvention. Successful Digital Reinvention will involve a fundamental re-imagining of how an organization engages with its environment and how it operates.
This presentation will cover the aforementioned digital technologies and illustrate how they change industries (e.g. Telco, Utilities/Energy, FSS, Government). It will be explained how the disruptive power of these technologies can be leveraged by applying the IBM Digital Reinvention approach.
