The Digital Enterprise is not about Technology
– At Least for the Winners!
The world has crossed the threshold into a new era of business. For over 50 years, wave after wave of technology poured into the enterprise. Those companies that invested heavily in each wave were able to create real competitive advantage. But now they find themselves at risk, and are fearful for good reason: the tide is going out.
The cloud has turned the in-house technology delivery model on its head, enabling a generation of nimble, fully digital start-ups to emerge in almost every industry. They are unencumbered by the costly legacy of an in-house technology infrastructure, and can therefore focus on talent, innovation and growth as legacy competitors struggle to absorb the significant cost of dismantling their technology past.
In this presentation on the future of the digital enterprise, our speakers will show how the winning companies of this new era understand they must unlock the full potential of their workforce. Organizations must get the people side of their business moving as fast as their business is changing. There is a velocity to work, and if you cannot manage it, you lose.
For the first time, companies will instrument the human infrastructure, no differently than has already been done for processes and technology. They will build high performing and innovative cultures that are capable of creating a sustainable competitive advantage. This is the advent of strategic human capital management (HCM 2.0), where people are managed as assets, not expenses. This is the present and future of corporate IT, at least for the winners. How are things going to work out for you?
