WHAT’S OUR FOCUS?


Digital technologies are transforming the business landscape. Every component of the value chain is being disrupted and reimagined. Despite the emphasis on disruptive technologies in the research agendas of academia, industry and policymakers, it is, in fact, business factors that are the critical success factors in long-term digital transformation. Indeed, over 70% of transformations fail. Digital technologies used in combination with functional expertise is an essential key to unlocking growth. To better understand and meet employee and customer needs, automate and improve internal operations, and roll out new business models; when they generate direct and quantifiable business value.

 

The scope of the IIDB research incorporates key enabling technologies that are catalysing digital transformation including cloud computing, social, mobile, analytics and blockchain technologies. Each of these technologies independently and together are sources of innovation and in combination with other innovations, such as the internet of things, robotics, natural interfaces, cognitive systems are accelerating industry transformation.
