Accelerated Now:

Engineering your technology-driven future

Dave Reid and Cristene Gonzalez-Wertz discuss the next wave of accelerated change.

In these exciting but challenging times, it’s critical to capitalize on new opportunities and overcome heavy burdens.

Drive to those ends with three key actions. Create differentiated, strategic advantages by developing a deep understanding of industry and ecosystem economic patterns, and leveraging the software-defined, platform-driven world. Power intelligent, sustainable operations by minimizing technical debt and optimizing supply chains to transition into positive business growth. Manage favorable forward transitions by building agility in the workplace and adopting a strong posture to deal with ever-increasing cyber-threats.

DXC Leading Edge will explore these issues as the evolution of our Accelerated Now agenda. Our initial series covered the five pillars of change for business agility. Explore those topics in our section Thriving in the Accelerated Now (below).   

The new enterprise: strategic, sustainable and transitional

Getting ready for the software-defined world

Digital lifecycle management (DLCM) is an imperative as software-defined, cyber physical assets begin to transform the enterprise. As businesses move to becoming software-driven organizations, platforms and pipelines will become the way they organize, underpinning DLCM to power business values and workstreams.

Platforms change the business landscape

A new podcast series, sponsored by DXC Technology, focuses on how platform technologies present a new way of working, support new opportunities — including re-inventing supply chains — and require new workforce skills.

In the Accelerated Now, business and technology will jointly change according to business need, customer expectations or opportunity.
