Optimizing your digital value chain
In an increasingly digital society, consumers and citizens have heightened expectations for their everyday interactions.
As a result, digital leaders across industries seek new ways to evolve their strategy and operational models and use technology and information to improve how they operate, deliver products and services, and create value.
These leaders realize results from transformation and generate new opportunities through an end-to-end digital value chain.

Key success factors include:

Optimizing your digital value chain is not solely a technology initiative, but rather an organizational effort that encompasses your mission, strategy, culture and operational models. Today’s digital value chain includes both virtual and in-person interactions. Drawing upon insights from the CGI Voice of Our Clients, along with the work of our experts across the globe, our white paper offers recommendations for accelerating your transformation results.

Digital leaders recognize the need to sense and respond to change quickly and to design their business and operating models to be agile. It is no longer enough to be the most efficient organization with the least errors; you also need to be the most innovative and fast at creating value through that innovation.
To win and be sustainable, organizations need to visualize and simulate decisions enabled by dynamic data and insights. This is what we term “value in motion.” This approach requires enterprises to rethink the mechanics of decision-making in the organization and the enabling technologies.
The pressure to digitize coupled with a myriad of challenges in executing a digital strategy have led to an increased demand for digital strategy consulting services. In response to this demand, the International Data Corporation (IDC) issued its 2021 IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Digital Strategy Consulting Services 2021 Vendor Assessment.
A significant component of the IDC MarketScape assessment is an analysis of buyer perceptions. Three key strengths identified by CGI clients include our insights, action orientation and people quality.
