The business community is experiencing a trend not seen since the third industrial revolution. The speed of new technologies being brought to market and the enhanced capabilities and affordability caused by digital innovation and the advent of Big Data has led to changes in how business is conducted, how organizations are managed and how consumers behave.

In fact digital transformation is having a huge impact on the entire value chain, from operations and logistics to how companies compete and with whom, where innovation comes from, how organizations engage with consumers and the role consumers play in the value chain.

While many resources exist to help leaders to survive, or even better, to thrive in such an environment of rapid change, the Digital Transformation Council provides a confidential environment where senior executives can share issues and solutions with others who have been there--and will be there.
