IBM Study: Three power plays of leaders
It turns out they have three characteristics that help set them apart:
Partnering is in their DNA
Leading companies partner more and partner more creatively. They are 2 to 3x as likely to engage citizen developers for skills transfer and start-ups for steering IT direction.
Analytics is their fuel
Armed with mature analytics capabilities and skills, leading companies run their enterprises on insights. For nearly 7 in 10, analytical insights are an integral part of decision-making.
Integration is their breakaway move
Big data & analytics, cloud, mobile and social are all powerful on their own. But leading companies are aiming to deliver a bigger punch – they are 4 to 7x more likely to combine the technologies.
Is it paying off?
