Digital Transformation: Threat or Opportunity?

Posted by Vinay Babu Yella on 15 Jan, 2019

Digital Transformation is for a company the difference between winning and losing. Companies that were once great are now extinct. For example: Toys "R" Us was once a successful toys store chain, but now out of business after Amazon shook up the retail market with online e-commerce offering customers with greater selection, lower price, and better customer experience. In some cases, much younger companies (for example: Uber, Airbnb, Stripe) are emerging as major disruptors in their industry, using their digital platforms that prove to be a threat to their competitors. Over the past twenty years, it has been proven that the industry disruptors where the first to embrace Digital Transformation, and those other companies that followed were successful by surviving the competition.

Faster Carrier Pigeons

Posted by Ruben van der Zwan on 20 Nov, 2018

Innovation is often the key to success in business. However, we often innovate in a linear fashion, meaning that we just create a new version of something that we currently have. Let me give you an example: If you find carrier pigeons too slow to deliver messages you simply start breeding faster flying pigeons. At one point, you almost inevitably will find that you are reaching the boundaries of what is possible. In this case, for instance, the speed with which a pigeon can fly. So, if you want to make the next step, you need something else if your demands for speedy delivery grows.
