ENTERPRISE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
Economic and technological progress have been transforming humanity for decades, but the pace and scale of recent change are unprecedented. Accenture Strategy Global Research shows 82 percent of business leaders expect their organisation to be a digital business in the next 3 years.
Digital trends like social media, mobile computing, analytics and cloud computing (SMAC) are fundamentally changing the way companies operate, and sparking a proliferation of disruptive business models like Netflix, Uber and Airbnb which take advantage of the world’s increased interconnectivity.
More efficient distribution and lower barriers to entry thanks to new technologies are inspiring more individuals, entrepreneurs, and enterprises to experiment with new business models and participate in the digital marketplace.
The pace of digital transformation has resulted in critical skill gaps that businesses are struggling to fill. Success is no longer simply about adopting the newest technologies; instead, modern enterprises must focus on fostering a new type of agile workforce, balancing tech and innovation skills to harness technology in a way that drives competitiveness.
According to the Global Industry 4.0 survey by PWC, 9 in 10 Asia Pacific respondents said they plan to expand their offering of digital products and services over the next 5 years. However, respondents also observed that the absence of digital culture and the right skills are major hurdles to make operations more digital.
SINGAPORE AS DIGITAL ECONOMY
In 2014, Singapore launched the SkillsFuture movement, designed to support the next phase of Singapore’s advancement towards an agile, vibrant and skilled economy. The initiative assembles employers, educators, unions and individuals to develop an integrated system of education, training and career progression for all residents through lifelong learning.
In 2016, the Committee of Future Economy (CFE) was set up with the vision to future-ready the economy where its people have deep skills and are engaged in lifelong learning, its enterprises are innovative and nimble, its city vibrant, connected to the world, and continually renewing itself, and its government coordinated, inclusive and responsive.
In 2016, Singapore launched its RIE2020 plan where it committed S$19 billion from 2016 to 2020 in research, innovation and enterprise to lay the foundation of its future economy to transform Singapore into a Smart Nation.
These innovation-driven initiatives will collectively support Singapore’s economic transformation to become a digital economy with future-ready citizen, city and enterprises.
