As business and digital worlds become more and more entwined, digital disruption is becoming a normal part of working life for organisations all over the world. Digital data now accounts for almost all of the consumer information we gather; making use of successful data transfers can be key to making sure your business stays ahead of the game in the digital world. So how can you make sure your organisation uses the digital disruption phenomenon to the best advantage possible?

What exactly is digital disruption? 

There isn’t one exact definition of digital disruption, thanks to the huge range of impact it can have on a whole range of businesses. However, experts widely agree that digital disruption was born out of a need to reach more people across more platforms; as social media, mobile and cloud computing technologies have grown, using these tools has developed into more widespread use in the digital world. 

While this phenomenon can help you take great steps in the digital world, it’s safe to say many businesses still see digital disruption as a risk to their business.  51% of executives report a high level of risk when it comes to digital disruption, because of both the huge changes that could be brought about, and the uncertainty a reliance on the digital world could bring for businesses used to more traditional methods of working. Maintaining an awareness of the trends and pitfalls that surround the digital world will help you use digital disruption to your advantage, staying ahead of the trends and ensuring your business becomes a leader in your industry’s field. 

The statistics…

  • 83% of businesses who see themselves as digital disruptors report increased revenue
  • 44% of organisations are adequately preparing for digital disruption within their industry
  • 65% of companies feel positive about their ability to adapt to technological disruption
