To put things into perspective, an IDG research reveals that establishing a digital business is among the top priorities as 91 per cent of organisations have either adopted or have plans to adopt a digital-first strategy. Of these organisations, 48 per cent already have a digital-first approach in place, meaning they are either in the execution, integration or digital maintenance phases.

While organisations remain at different stages of digital maturity, the demand for increased productivity at lower costs while maintaining business continuity is making it harder to meet market requirements.

Consequently, regardless of an organisation’s approach to maximise business value and output, some element of digital transformation is necessary. And it starts with empowering the organisation’s workforce. Ultimately, success would depend on a well-crafted digital strategy that is aligned with the business direction and objectives, and one that focusses on delivering business value rather than random technology implementation.

In line with this we have included different aspects of remote collaboration and security in this month’s issue.
