It’s really stimulating to look at Gartner’s annual top 10 strategic technology trends for the year ahead. Last month it highlighted the top trends that will impact most organizations in 2018 and organized them in a framework relating to building an "Intelligent Digital Mesh”. “The intelligent digital mesh is a foundation for future digital business and ecosystems," said David Cearley, VP and Gartner Fellow.

"Digital Transformation" is one term that is creating a lot of buzz. In fact, it is so popular that a recent Marketing Technologist study revealed that 97% of companies are currently chasing a digital transformation of some kind. In addition, Gartner is reporting that investments in digital transformation are expected to increase through 2017 and 2018, capturing 28% of total IT budget.
Undergoing digital business transformation is no more a matter of choice for companies but a necessity to thrive.
