Global market intelligence firm IDC has estimated that at least 30% of companies across the Philippines will achieve “digital determination” by 2020. Sudev Bangah, managing director of ASEAN at IDC, said that to be digitally determined, Philippine organizations need a blueprint consisting of a unified enterprise strategy, a long investment plan based on the principle that a digital focus is inherently valuable to the business, and a single digital platform to scale technology innovations. Bangah added that digital determination also means having the will to make the necessary organizational and cultural changes to keep up with digital transformation.
