Digital Transformation is considered as significant as the Industrial Revolution. This phenomenon affects almost every aspect of an enterprise across industries. How products are conceived, sold, and supported is undergoing a sea change as a result of the confluence of new digital capabilities, most notably SMAC (Social, Mobile, Analytics, & Cloud) technologies.

As evidence of this state of flux, a recent study done by Altimeter Group and reported in Forbes found that while 88% of companies surveyed stated that they were undergoing digital transformation, only one-quarter of them had a clear understanding of what the strategy should be. Further, an MIT study found that 78% of executives surveyed believe that digital transformation is critical to their organization, yet 63% believe their pace of change is too slow.

To educate executives across industries on how to thrive in today’s complex world of digital transformation Polaris Consulting & Services Ltd is working with Saïd Business School of the University of Oxford to offer a highly innovative and visionary educational programs.
