June 2017

A peripheral concern for most firms in 2015, digital disruption now impacts half of companies globally – and has become a top-of-mind issue at the board level.

Our latest research uncovered these and many other important insights about how the state of disruption across industries has changed since 2015. This new study from the Global Center for Digital Business Transformation (DBT Center), an IMD and Cisco initiative, draws on survey data from hundreds of executives, along with quantitative data, such as where venture capitalists are placing their bets.

The results show large differences among industries in how they are experiencing the effects of disruption in the “Digital Vortex.”
