Gain more value with digital

Combining digital technologies that drive operational efficiencies with others that enable new growth is the key idea of Accenture’s Industry X approach. Companies which follow that approach strive to master this kind of technology combination and balance their digital mix to achieve efficiency and maximize investment value.

These Industry X companies can quickly determine which technologies are optimal for their business. And they excel in adopting these in an effective way that allows them to drive company-wide change.

Tomorrow’s Industry X companies will rely on not only business cases but also analysis of external factors, or value-triggers, to shape their digital transformation roadmap.

A careful analysis—and management—of these factors can help companies make better technology choices, mitigate adoption risks and maximize the return on digital investments.
