"Digital is not only about building a website or an application, it involves life and business along with the entire company. Today it is the same as business transformation so we need to embrace it. Disrupt ourselves before being disrupted." quotedMr. Jaspreet Bindra,Founder of Digital Matters, a renowned advisory firm in the areas of Digital Transformation, Blockchain and the Future of Work.Mr. Bindrahas well-proven experiences on strategically and tactfully transform business enterprises by utilising advanced innovations and technologies to keep businesses afloat in Disruption Age. He explains "It is true that businesses cannot transform themselves without reliance on cutting-edge innovations or technologies, but it must be noted that digital transformation is not just about technology advancement, rather it covers many areas particularlyThe Holy Trinity of digital transformation – business model, customer experience and people & culture - that must support one another.Firstly, embrace newbusiness modelsand experiment with new technologies. Executives must understand current trends, insights, needs, and lifestyles of their customers to select the right technology in execution. For instance, platform-based business models are growing fast as young-gen consumers are adopting the concept of sharing economy since they prefer to cut down excess capacity from their economic activities. To maximise efficiency, they prefer to rent instead of own as they seek pleasure from gaining experiences rather than pleasure from long-term ownership. Secondly, executives must understand thatCustomer Experienceis the main differentiator. They need to plan their offline and online strategies in accordance with customer journey, and they should understand that a boundary between offline and online world is now being blurred out as consumers nowadays move offline and online seamlessly. Finally and most importantly,People and Cultureare the single most important enabler, and inhibitor, for digital transformation. Success digital transformation may depend on various variables but, unsuccessful ones fail for only reason which is its people and culture. Lack of proper strategies and planning may lead to changes only in workflows which yield no significant benefits to businesses. Cultivation on essential digital skills as well as Digital Mindset—a "Fail Fast and Fail Forward" axiom plus an adaptive mindset to constantly evolve with changes and to honestly face errors if things or ideas do not go well as planned—must be prioritised. In other words, the entire organisation needs to be upskilled and reskilled with digital skills along with agile thinking"
