Balancing tech efficiency with innovation
Companies that fail to act on the business insights revealed in the wealth of data gathered over decades by their own IT systems run the risk of falling victim to the age of digital disruption.
Dr Sebastian Boell, a specialist in business information systems, has been researching the evolution of information technology from information to innovation. According to Boell, successful organisations are those that have managed to balance what they’re doing more efficiently with IT, while at the same time use IT to be innovative; to be a market leader and to come up with new ways of doing things.
He says it’s now more important than ever for companies to innovate in order to survive in this age of digital disruption that has rendered much of the traditional marketplace obsolete.
