Imagine all the advances of the last 150 years, each discovery building on the last to alter the way we live, relate, consume and perceive. This same amount of industrial and societal change will happen in the next 15 years.
During which people will purchase digital rights from brands to create your own clothing and furniture with digital fabrics. You will eat organically balanced food using nanotech, you will know someone whose life was saved by a 3D printed organ implanted by a doctor operating remotely. You will carry safer, digital integrated ID and forms of payment driven by the blockchain of everything.
Next is autonomous vehicles and ride share programs which will alter our entire transportation infrastructure. You will have robotic and AI driven support tools and even colleagues, the very notion of an employee will change. All these advancements will open us up to a new world of imaginative possibilities.
What role will you play in this world?
You will need to embrace it as a freely moving digital enterprise, the pace of change will continue to accelerate, enterprises will have to adapt faster.
“Since the year 2000, I think we’ve seen over 50% of the Fortune 500 disappear. And... why they disappeared so quickly was because of speed — the speed of change.” Paul Chapman, CIO, Box.
If you want to serve the wants and needs of your future it is time to embrace digital transformation, it is not a case of 'if' but 'when'.
“Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them.” Steve Jobs
