Accenture’s Digital High Performance research uncovers some disturbing stats:
Only 3 percent of South African companies are seeing a financial return on their investments in digital.
70 percent are considered laggards in terms of digitalisation.
Only 5 percent of South African companies are identified as Digital Leaders, compared to 25 percent globally.
The research shows a distinct correlation between digital and financial performance. Yet even though South African companies recognise the need to digitise, the pace of transformation remains slow. It’s not surprising that 73 percent say they are currently facing disruption.
