According to Forbes:

  • 1% of data is currently being used effectively
  • Data usage will grow to 4% with use of artificial intelligence (AI)
  • 2 years for blockchain to be easily implemented in applications beyond cryptocurrency
  • 40% of businesses will adopt "chat-bots," with enhanced capabilities by the end of 2019


Embracing change does require an exploratory mindset and willingness to learn. Organizations need to adapt to new technologies to grow. Digital applications provide an opportunity to transform a business and its core operations in-flight. Based on research conducted at MIT, there is a huge scope for companies to integrate business functions using digital technologies, such as analytics and cloud services, rather than solving discrete siloed business problems. Whether it be your watch turning digital or your car, digital technologies and applications help drive business and society, making them more productive. Embrace and drive digital change to transform your business.



Digital technologies such as data analytics, cloud storage, IoT applications, and blockchain can help businesses grow by automating functions and enhancing decision making. Understanding multiple scenarios, and looking ahead for the next cyclic change in business, helps decision makers make pro-active decisions. It is vitally important to gain clarity of the business and technological impact that the technology provides before implementing.
