Finding the Right Technology Partner To Innovate Your Business Model

Digital Transformation, in terms of cloud technology, advanced analytics, blockchain, Internet of Things and so on, is, and if not will soon be, affecting every industry, in every sector, everywhere. So it’s no time to be on the back foot – businesses of every size need to start, if they haven’t already, embracing new technologies in order to innovate their business models if they mean to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world. That was the message from Bastiaan van Drempt, Director of Coact Consulting Group in his discussion session at eWorld which we attended last month. He aimed to give delegates an idea of the guiding principles they would need to help govern digital business strategy, and therefore, what to look for in a technology provider or partner.

This led nicely into a discsussion about what we need to be looking for in our digital transformation or journey, and what we need to help innovate our business models.
