"With more than 90 percent of user enterprises worldwide already working through multiple phases of digital transformation – from experimentation and learning to fully engaged, established and improving – the critical leader­ship questions are shifting. Decisions around which technologies to leverage remain paramount, but business and IT leaders are increasingly focusing on the implications for business strategy and execution that create disruptive opportunity, improve the business, and sustain competitive capability, often in new and unintended ways."
