Is your business fit for a digital world?

We live in an age of innovation and digital transformation. Digital changes what is possible, and its impact is affecting every individual, organization, business and government.

At EY, we believe a better working world means developing better, digitally enabled approaches for our people, our clients and the communities and wider world we all serve. We also believe that digital should be infused in everything we do. So we don’t start with a digital issue – we start with a business issue, and then find a digital solution, fit for a digital world. This means being able to look at digital from every angle, to help build, grow and protect organizations, today, tomorrow and far into the future.

Our holistic approach to digital inspires us to ask better questions to help our clients and stakeholders feel confident as they navigate this uncertain landscape, and ultimately to be able to seize the upside of disruption.

Our deep understanding of new technologies and innovation, professional judgment and human insight helps us to build confidence in a digital world.

Digital is creating significant challenges for companies across all industries. Companies know they have to prepare for dramatic changes.

Even as companies prepare for new challenges, digital will present a wealth of opportunities for those who can seize the upside of disruption.

  • Robotic process automation (RPA) can reduce costs 25%-50% and allow for 24x7x365 availability

  • A drone can capture and analyze high-definition video of offshore oil rigs in just 5 days – compared to 8 weeks for a traditional “rope lift” team.

Today’s disruptive environment is ripe for new markets and opportunities. Every company and industry must rethink how they connect with their clients and consumers. To understand their customers, businesses must plug into new trends, listen for weak signals in their ecosystems and bring the outside in.”
