Enable the end-to-end Digital Value Chain 

Digitalization of customer engagement

The time-and-materials business model is being replaced by outcome-based models. This creates an opportunity for firms to achieve nonlinear revenue growth based on outcomes or performance. Real-time information, analysis, insights, and simulations now need to be readily available for frontline professionals to encourage a culture that favors agility and responsiveness to achieve desired outcomes.

Digitalization of services

Extensive “vaults” of experience and intellectual property are being digitalized, making information easy to find and understand, use instantly, and pay for on a usage or subscription basis. Providing the vault as a stand-alone offering will allow firms to package expertise into more easily consumable offerings beyond the duration of a particular contract, building substantial service lines with minimal employee support.

Serving the need for variability

Digitalization of talent the professional services industry, often more important than the expertise itself is knowing who has the expertise. This is especially true in environments where information, concepts, and thinking are changing rapidly. In the digital world, new networks are emerging outside the company walls that are capturing talent digitally in a more comprehensive and accurate fashion. 

Digitalization of expertise

It is increasingly common to find documented expertise in the online world. From blogs, presentations, and YouTube videos, there is an explosion of knowledge in digital form. With the rapid progress in Big Data solutions and structured and unstructured search technologies, customers can instantly find the knowledge that is most relevant to them and easily navigate between related articles

Enabling the intelligent Enterprise

By applying intelligent technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and advanced analytics, leading professional services firms transform into event-driven businesses. These event-driven businesses automate repetitive tasks, enable employees to focus on higher-value tasks, and allow the invention of new business models and revenue streams by monetizing data-driven capabilities and applying core competencies in new ways.

The Time to Start Is Now

Speed is what matters now, as the first movers will have an edge. Digital transformation is a long journey, and the sooner you start, the sooner you will be able to compete in the digital economy. First movers will have the significant advantage of consolidating their position in the industry and ecosystem, and further building on their lead by focusing on innovation. Companies waiting to start will be left further behind.
