THE DIGITAL BUSINESS:

A STEPPING-STONE TO THE FUTURE ENTERPRISE

In light of the looming global recession, social unrest, political turmoil, and the long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Digital Transformation (DX) is evolving into the Digital Business Era. 

From addressing departmental challenges that resulted in islands of innovation to closing the digital ROI gap and scaling transformation, leading enterprises are now ready to build and scale new business models to run a viable, sustainable digital business in the long term. Enterprise leaders will place a much greater emphasis on clear and measurable business outcomes from technology investments.  

We look forward to celebrating organizations that will unlock their potential to be the gold standard in a digital-first world – The Future Enterprise.
