Digital Technologies and Analytics

Digitization and analytics are transforming industries and value chains in very fundamental ways. While the Internet and mobile technologies transformed commerce and business practices in many industries, this transformation is accelerating in profound ways with the advent of Internet of Things (IoT), sentient technologies and, the use of algorithms and data analytics. Information and intelligence are now core components of products and processes, creating opportunities for rethinking the nature of engagement with customers, business partners and the structures of value networks. Industries are being radically transformed through new products, services and business models that exploit the emerging information and communication technologies, the digital infrastructures, and the digital enablement of physical goods and facilities.
