A Third Digital Era is Emerging

Established companies are in a position to win big in the new era.

A third digital era is emerging, and established companies are in a position to win big. The first digital era was basic automation using mainframe and personal computers. The second era leveraged the internet, mobile and social technologies. The third era is driven by technologies like Internet of Things, machine learning, natural language processing, machine vision, and robotics.

Our research shows that companies that are more active with digital initiatives perform better than less active companies. For example, over the last five years, S&P 500 non-technology companies who were more active in digital initiatives achieved 6% more growth per year in market cap than less active companies - translating to over $1 billion more shareholder wealth growth per year than less active companies.
