How to Lead Your Industry in the Era of Rapid Change

Posted by C1 on Jan 28, 2020 10:00:00 AM

It’s no secret that CEOs desire to lead their industry with the help of digital transformation. According to Gartner’s 2018 CEO Survey, 78% of CEOs believe that their companies are either industry pioneers or fast followers. In order to maintain the pioneer title, CEOs are looking to their CIOs and IT departments to continually drive transformation efforts that bring immediate value to the business.

What complicates matters is that the IT industry is constantly changing, as well. Tech giants like Cisco are transforming their buying models from the traditional hardware and software relationship to a more digital model. In the era of digital infrastructure, how software is consumed has drastically changed, and with change comes challenges.

Customers today are constantly challenged with learning new buying models, delivery techniques, and consumption options to achieve their critical business outcomes. Because change is occurring at such a rapid pace, organizations require an accelerated process to reaching their desired business outcomes, which goes hand-in-hand with driving software adoption.
