Innovations such as cloud, AI, edge computing, the interconnectivity of IoT smart devices, and remote operations have accelerated the primary characteristics that define the digital era: granularity, speed, and scale. However, the flip side of this coin tells a different story of a huge technological gap. With the rising complexity of IT systems and the inception of a broad range of new technologies, start-ups and enterprises are undergoing challenges such as multi-jurisdictional security, data governance, capacity building, resources management, revenue-based issues, etc., as they try to survive in the modern competitive business landscape. Technology modernization also demands knowledge of how to transition from existing traditional systems to flexible, seamless ones. Given the scale of the challenge, low-cost, high-impact solutions are required to cover the technological gaps.
The ask is- how will organizations dedicate the energy, focus, and resources to continually closing or leapfrogging the technological gaps? How can tech-start-ups help them win the most important battlegrounds?
