Because companies are under significant pressure as they face myriad obstacles that challenge their technology solutions and their management of risk.
These threats can be turned into opportunities for leaders who are willing to adopt innovative attitudes and new technologies, thereby linking creativity and technology.
Overcoming price pressure
Due to recent economic challenges, companies in saturated markets have struggled. In face of financial challenges, many organizations have reacted by focusing solely on their existing infrastructures and cost containment.
But to surpass their competitors and overcome financial challenges, business executives now realize that they must differentiate their companies by creating innovative business models, refining their portfolio of services and
redefining their value propositions.
Web services, digital marketing and mobile services permit businesses to simultaneously reduce costs and address segmented markets, which helps boost profit margins.
Going beyond the current boundaries
Companies want to lower acquisition and customer service costs due to geographic barriers, cultural differences and technological and organizational challenges that keep them from reaching high-growth markets.
New business models based on cloud technology, the Web, collaborative partner solutions and multi-channel contact centers are some of the new technological solutions that permit companies to move into international and high-growth markets.
Attract and retain top talent
Innovation gives you a strategic advantage when it comes to attracting and retaining top talent. Highly skilled employees want to work for innovative businesses. Younger generations have grown up with laptops, the Web and mobile devices, and their expectations require an innovative redesign of the workplace.
Inventing products that will create growth
Whether you're a B2B or B2C company, developing new answers to existing questions and new uses for existing technologies helps to create an innovative business model. Creating connected services based on your solutions and products, innovative management of your goods and consumerization of your business portfolio are just a few ways for you to differentiate your company and capture the attention of new markets.
In a traditional operational model of investment and absorption, it has become nearly impossible to innovate due to uncertainty over the rate of acceptance of untested technological solutions.
By leveraging digital technologies in an on-demand environment, you can minimize risk by modeling and testing each concept until it is validated, by adapting your solution dynamically and then moving it safely through production to deployment.
