The Essential Strategy for Scaling Digital Businesses

With the advent of the Internet of Things, omnichannel retail and consumer demands for digitally traded services, all industries must undergo digital transformations in the coming years to survive. A crucial aspect of making this initiative successful is understanding digital transformation and knowing that your business will be ready to scale digitally as you grow. Companies must ensure they have a strategy to handle new demands and operate smoothly in the cloud.

According to Gartner, ‘The problem is that 80% of CEOs have not yet changed their business model, despite significant investment in digital business (see ‘2017 CEO Survey: CIOs Must Scale Up Digital Business’). The primary focus of many CEOs is to sell more of their current solutions in new ways, including through digital channels. In such situations, digital is used to optimize the existing business model but not to create new value propositions.’[1]
