A Message from our Chairman & CEO, Pierre Nanterme
I am pleased to share with our alumni two exciting new reports from Accenture.
At the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, we launched “Winning with the Industrial Internet of Things,” which identifies three ways to accelerate the broad adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Accenture estimates the Industrial Internet of Things could add US$14.2 trillion to the global economy by 2030. By enabling new digital services and business models based on intelligent connected devices, we believe the Industrial Internet of Things has the power to transform companies and countries, opening up a new era of economic growth and competitiveness.
We have also recently released the Accenture Technology Vision 2015, our annual view of the trends we believe will have a profound impact on enterprises over the next few years. This year’s report— “Digital Business Era: Stretch Your Boundaries” — is all about how digital businesses are moving beyond their traditional models to create a hyper-connected world that we call the “We Economy.” Our message for leaders across all industries is that businesses must think and act differently to win in this new environment. A single idea, a single technology or a single organization will no longer be the key to success. High performers of the future will be those who position themselves at the center of the emerging digital ecosystems. I encourage you to watch the Accenture Technology Vision 2015 webcast to learn more.
I believe these reports are “must-read” material in this time of digital revolution and transformation. I hope you will find them both insightful and relevant to your current endeavors.
All the best,
