Based on our 2017 CGI Client Global Insights, 48% of the 1,300 business and technology leaders we interviewed face-to-face say their organizations are experimenting with emerging technologies to meet evolving customer/citizen needs and move ahead of the competition.
Our world continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and this speed of change is accelerating. Client organizations are seeing a more dynamic marketplace where their stakeholders, leadership, customers and citizens are demanding more.
In response, organizations are having to create competitive products and services quickly. Innovation and collaboration are becoming critical business capabilities that leverage emerging technologies to create new business models, products and services.
The scope of emerging technology is vast and continues to evolve. Technologies that we focused on several years ago continue to mature, while other new technologies like Blockchain and Chatbots emerge. These emerging technologies are like building blocks; they may provide a function on their own but, until they are connected with others, their value is limited.
By combining these building blocks together for a specific industry use case, we can start to design a solution that delivers value for an organization. As organizations start to deliver more solutions leveraging these technologies, patterns emerge.
In Belgium, we work with clients to research, design, test, and deploy new services and solutions powered by the latest technologies. Our practices develop innovative concepts starting from Proof of Values, Proof of Concepts to experimental projects, often in collaboration with the customer. If the proof of concept offers sufficient potential, the technology is further developed, brought to market and developed to its full potential. CGI's Digital Experience Day is a great way to explore and test drive CGI's capabilities and innovation.
Our vision is to help clients make strategic investments, bring ideas to life and achieve scale. CGI has the end-to-end capabilities to help clients through their digital transformation journey while leveraging emerging technologies - all done in a secure way.
