In the digital era, enterprises constantly have to innovate to keep abreast of the latest technologies and remain competitive. From applying big data insights to their business to the advantages of the cloud, management teams have a plethora of issues to address if they're to stay ahead of the curve.
Innovation consists of actual transformation for the better – in other words, creating new business models or processes, or significantly enhancing existing ones. Enterprises shouldn't innovate for the sake of it or focus solely on technology; innovation has to impact the business according to a sound strategy. For organisations to succeed and catch up to their peers they must foster organisational intimacy, close collaboration, imagination, energy and desire to innovate; in turn enabling actual transformation in business.
