Information technology (IT) has been the single most instrumental factor in driving business growth across industry verticals in the last two decades. Today it has much larger implications. Organizations are under pressure to ensure that every decision they make for R&D to product development, from marketing to sales, from customer acquisition to service delivery-- there is agility, mobility and optimal customer experience.
The confluence of IT with connectivity is what will reshape our universe. The world will have least 80 billion connected devices by 2020. Hence IT morphs into Digital Transformation and is slated to disrupt just about every aspect of business; the way organizations interact with consumers and the way they discover new opportunities.
