Companies on the journey to a transformed, digital future are discovering that the divide between the old and new way of doing business is a lot wider than it looks from the edge. But the gap in performance between digital masters and alsorans makes it worth the effort and risk. A transformed digital business reinvents operational processes, turns business models upside down, and delivers innovative and personalized experiences to customers.
The Global Competitiveness Report 2017–2018 comes out at a time when the global economy has started to show signs of recovery and yet policymakers and business leaders are concerned about the prospects for future economic growth. Governments, businesses, and individuals are experiencing high levels of uncertainty as technology and geopolitical forces reshape the economic and political order that has underpinned international relations and economic policy for the past 25 years. At the same time, the perception that current economic approaches do not serve people and societies well enough is gaining ground, prompting calls for new models of human-centric economic progress.
After about 50 years of largely languishing in technology labs and the pages of science fiction books, today artificial intelligence (AI) has taken center stage and is under the bright lights.

A retração do mercado que havia se iniciado em 2015 ainda persistiu, embora algumas tendências em relação à inflação e câmbio tenham mostrado sinais de melhora durante o ano. Mantendo os mesmos critérios dos anos anteriores usados pela IDC para possibilitar a comparação dos mercados dos vários países em que realiza seus estudos, ou seja, o levantamento dos valores anualizados e a atualização das séries históricas construídas num modelo de “dólar constante”, em 2016, os investimentos em Tecnologia da Informação no Brasil mostraram uma redução de 3,6% em relação a 2015. Se for comparado às demais economias mundiais, o país caiu duas posições, passando a ocupar a 9ª posição no ranking mundial de crescimento.
The term ‘FinTech’ might be both the most over-hyped and under-estimated term the industry has seen in decades. On one hand, from an investment standpoint, venture capital (CV) funding of the FinTech revolution has been staggering, resulting in billions of dollars of investment. We have seen a significant reduction in barriers to entry and customers’ digital expectation demands explode. However, very few start-ups have managed to use their agility and innovation to fill gaping holes in the customer experience left by traditional firms with viable business models that achieve scale and distribution.
