Every industry confronts the digital imperative. But how it plays out and the degree of impact it has on competitive advantage will vary widely depending on the specific sector. The winners will be those companies that combine traditional industry expertise with a deep understanding of the disruptive potential of the latest technologies. Consider, for example, the auto industry.
New technologies, new offerings, and new players are transforming the industry’s core value proposition. Soon, the industry will create far more than modes of transportation. It will provide mobility services, entertainment spaces, and the software-driven, artificially intelligent autonomous vehicles of the future. That’s why BCG has created the Center for Digital in Automotive to help industry leaders navigate these massive changes.
