Editorial Reviews

“By 2020, 75 percent of businesses will be fully digital, yet only a few have a real digital strategy. The Digital Revolution provides powerful insights and practical examples of how to develop a digital roadmap. Countries, cities, and companies must disrupt themselves or be disrupted in this new digital world.”--John Chambers, Executive Chairman, Cisco Systems “The online digital revolution is affecting all parts of our world. This timely book is filled with interesting scenarios of disruption and discusses a variety of challenges arising in the new information age. Reading it will help you understand how this revolution will affect your job, your company, and your future.”--John Hennessy, President, Stanford University Board Member, Google and Cisco “The Digital Revolution is a thoughtful and creative addition to the conversation on one of the major forces shaping our world--digital disruption. Inder Sidhu explores both the challenges and opportunities arising from new technologies. He offers valuable insight into the ways in which organizations will need to adapt and change--from becoming radically transparent, to engaging connected consumers, to increasing asset utilization, to redesigning the organization, to innovating at speed.”--Dominic Barton, Global Managing Director, McKinsey & Company “Inder Sidhu has his finger on the pulse of ‘The Internet of Everything’--not only today’s cutting edge from Tesla to Uber, but also where the digital revolution will take us. He has convinced me that the best is yet to come, indeed that we are only at the beginning of the transformative impact of digitization.”--Geoffrey Garrett, Dean, The Wharton School
