A Techaisle survey of nearly 900 midmarket firms on Digital Transformation trends in the US found that more than one-third of midmarket businesses – 34% - view digital transformation as a means of driving product innovation. Regardless of whether the ‘product’ that an organization produces is a physical good or a service, there is likely a link between DX and breakthrough design and delivery.
In both products and services, the key links between DX and product innovation are insight and agility. As the graphic below shows, these themes permeate the key business issues, innovation objectives and digital transformation drivers that shape the strategy of ‘holistic’ organizations – the most advanced DX users in the midmarket. These firms are using DX to respond to a set of imperatives that set them apart from their competitors.
Senior executives in midmarket organizations care about digital transformation – and as a result, channel members can leverage their understanding of key Digital Transformation objectives and roadmaps into long-term, sustainable relationships with senior decision makers.
