Digital transformation is top of mind for CIOs and business leaders for clear and practical reasons. It offers an opportunity to create new revenue streams and meet changing customer demands, as well as a way to address the rise of digital insurgents trying to hijack core markets. What’s needed is a common resource that both IT and business managers intrinsically value, one that can guide decisions about new business initiatives and related technology investments. That rallying point is enterprise data. Because incumbents possess richer reserves of business information, they wield a competitive advantage that even the most disruptive insurgents can’t claim. The key is for established companies to unlock the full potential of this important resource to fuel business transformation and help to maintain their leadership positions in volatile and quickly evolving markets.

Agile and innovative companies like Netflix, Instagram, Amazon, Airbnb, and Uber have used exponential technologies to completely disrupt their industries. But some of the largest industries in the world have fallen prey to these and other disruptive companies. And most of them didn’t even see it coming. The convergence of exponential technologies, along with bold thinking and the willingness to take risks, is completely altering the business landscape. And that landscape is changing at an accelerating pace. Disruption is occurring far more quickly than ever before. On average, an S&P 500 company is being replaced every 2 weeks, and over 40% of today’s Fortune 500 companies on the S&P 500 will no longer exist within 10 years. The only options are to disrupt yourself or be disrupted by your competition. Which will you choose? If you choose the former, do you know how to proceed? This guide shares strategies you can employ today to start future-proofing your company.
