How transformed is my industry?
Let’s look at ICT-driven transformation of industries from two perspectives.
First dimension considers where the transformation mainly is taking place: At the back end of the value chain, i.e. on the production side, or at the front end, i.e. towards the end user? Also, is it a more disruptive, or a more evolutionary change?
Take the media industry, which is mainly a case of disruption occurring in the end user dimension, removing the traditional distribution to the consumer, as well as changing the consumption experience.
In utilities, on the other hand, the change is more evolutionary due to high investment costs and regulation among others. This map is our current estimate of where industries are at the moment. It is a qualitative assessment which will evolve over time as data is added. Are we right or wrong? Make your voice heard below.
