Fundamentally, an adaptive enterprise is one that continuously evolves. For enterprises embracing “digital transformation,” it means being responsive to both marketplace change and technology evolution in ways that intelligently grow the business. It means approaching digital with an “A to Z” mindset that addresses transformation from the ground up and the inside out—from the operational core to the experience edge of the enterprise. Adaptive means agile. It means being able to respond quickly to marketplace opportunities and to pivot easily away from strategies that are not working for the business.
Innovation at the edge starts with innovation at the core.
Verizon is well positioned to help businesses evolve to lean, adaptive enterprises. Nothing is more integral to enterprise operations than communications—how the organization enables the free flow of information. This means everything from how people can connect to people (both within and outside of the organization) to how information is captured, managed, and accessed by any person or machine within the organization and often outside of it. Therefore, helping businesses become adaptive entities has to start with the fundamental infrastructure that drives communication and collaboration.
