Digital high performance research

Are AEX-listed companies keeping up with the pace of Digital disruption?

Overview

The Digital High Performance Research, analyzes the AEX companies to find out in what way they are anticipating key digital change drivers and how they translate them into their own business strategy. Over the last few months we have conducted a research based on a scoring model (The Digitalization Index) that defines the best practice and 3 gradients of deviation. The study includes interviews with five key stakeholders which further illustrate the findings of the research.

Background
Digital is becoming mainstream. In 2015, Digital is impacting everyone, everywhere more than ever. Society has changed as a result. People have been empowered by transparent information, online product choice, social media, self-service options and participation in the sharing economy to name some examples.

Recommendations
If done correctly, the highest rewards of digitalization comes from its disruptive force to open new markets, bind customers, while gaining operational efficiencies and cost reductions.The question that the AEX-listed companies must now ask is how they are going to use the next years to define their place in this new, Digital world. How will they leverage Digital across all three areas of business: Strategy, Servicing and Ena-blement? Those companies that arrive at the best answers — and that can properly leverage the strengths of Digital alongside the strengths of people — will be setting themselves up for market-leading advantages.
