Upping your digital game: What our study reveals

Everyone knows that born-digital companies are growing at a blistering pace compared with their born-traditional counterparts.

Born-digital businesses are both the protagonists and the disruptors in a diverse array of industries—and they’re making life simpler for customers by providing meticulously personalized offerings, delivering goods and services at unprecedented speeds, and presenting customized options like delivering to your door versus delivering you to their door.

For born-traditional companies, competing against their born-digital counterparts is no easy feat, and many are at risk of being displaced. In our experience, many born-traditional businesses have dragged their feet in responding not only to the threats posed by born-digital successes but also to the new opportunities these fast growing newcomers present.

Specifically, born-traditional firms have a valuable chance to learn from their digitally savvy counterparts on multiple fronts.
