As companies contemplate “what’s next?” in their business, the answer often entails becoming digital.
Digital Enterprises dazzle us with exquisite products and services that blend the physical and digital. How do they do it? They create a digital workplace, collaborate in a digital value chain and operate with a digital mindset.
Drive a Tesla and you feel like you are driving “what’s next.” Order food from DoorDash and you get a taste of a “what’s next” business model and digital value chain. Use Periscope or LinkedIn and you are participating in “what’s next” user experiences that iterate daily and harness data to drive engagement and productivity.

Over the previous generation, successive waves of new information technology – from the introduction of personal computers to the Internet to wireless broadband and diverse mobile devices – have enabled dramatic gains in workplace productivity. Today, in a period of widespread economic uncertainty and diminished expectations of the future, skeptics wonder if the tech-driven productivity gains of recent decades have run their course.
Last month, I took a trip to Barcelona to attend Mobile World Congress. This event is quite possibly the largest in the telecom and service provider industry. My rationale for going was to test a theory about (a) EMC’s focus on Cloud, Big Data, Trusted IT, and (b) our increasing emphasis on the Software-Defined Data Center: are these themes as interesting to Service Providers as they are to the Enterprise?
