9 Successful Digital Disruption Examples

  • 9 Successful Digital Disruption Examples-

    Integrating the Supply Network

    The aerospace-and-defense industry is using digital tools to integrate an enormously complex supply network. According to Dave Evans, CEO of Fictiv, an example of this is a modern jet turbine engine that has hundreds of individual parts, some of which the engine manufacturer makes in-house, and others it sources from a network of dozens of vendors.

    "Cloud computing-based tools enable a new level of transparency between engineers and suppliers, reducing the labor required to manage design changes, and increasing speed across the entire product development process," says Evans.

Digital disruption is using technology to transform everything about the way businesses are run and the way they interact with customers. As the experts at Epicor Software have pointed out, digital disruption isn't so much an IT project as the future of business, and this requires widespread collaboration across all units.

As Ajay Khanna, VP of Product Marketing at Reltio, explains, the digital disruption we are witnessing today started with the emergence of social, mobile and cloud computing technologies, leading to new business and economic models with a strong focus on the customer experience. It is fueled by cloud-based modern data management technologies that help companies build a reliable data foundation for better and faster data-driven decision management and become more customer-centric by having a deep understanding of their customers.

Digital disruption requires enterprises to rethink the way they operate. In this slideshow, Sue Marquette Poremba has identified some of the ways that digital disruption is being used.
