Successful enterprises live and breathe digital strategies to build a sustainable environment where a customer-centric business model is crucial in reaching beyond existing demands and future possibilities. A company-wide transformation with an enhanced business model is needed to stay relevant to customers in the fast-changing marketplace. To actively and effectively engage customers in a digitally connected world, realigning human factors, technology, investment and business models have become an imperative no business should ignore.
