Why are software-driven companies taking over the world? They are responsive organizations, built on ‘sens and respond’ instead of ‘plan and predict’. These lean and mean learning machines leverage technology to power the next revolution of the digital age. In the next decade every large scale organization will be digitized and will effectively become a software-driven enterprise. It will not be the largest of organizations that will survive, neither the most intelligent ones, but those who are most responsive to change.
A responsive enterprise is an organization that is able to easily learn and quickly respond without any delay to whatever happens. Becoming a responsive enterprise is not mere a choice. The only way to survive and deliver value is by being able to react fast, by being able to focus to changing demands of customers and business partners and by embracing the full potential of software.
