Technology plays a bigger role in business than ever before
Technology is advancing at lightning speed. It is enabling organizations and sectors in every industry to reinvent everything from their business and operating models to how they engage with customers and employees.
The "BizTechs" lead their industries
To extract maximum value from technology and digital, companies must firmly fuse business and technology—creating a new kind of organization: A "BizTech."
The best BizTechs possess superior properties and capabilities that give them unprecedented competitive advantage. For instance, they:
- Continuously mine data for fresh insights
- Diffuse technologists throughout the organization, not just in IT
- Swiftly and easily reconfigure themselves through automation.
No matter where you are in your BizTech transformation, a robust and deep technology strategy is an imperative for growth.
Read more about the creation and transformation to BizTech in this article by our Managing Director, Rob Hornby, The Dangerous Misspeak of Digital Transformation.
Our Foundational strategic mantra
Technology has moved from back of business, to underneath business, to being the business.
AlixPartners delivers our suite of Technology & Digital services as a key component of our operational expertise across an array of industries to help organizations transform themselves. In leading companies, technology and digital is not separate, but is infused into operations, strategy and culture.
This integrated alignment creates what we call a BizTech – and is a hallmark of the highest performing firms. We tailor our approach and services to each client’s position along their path of transformation and transition.
We’ve pioneered strategies for companies to improve revenue growth and operational efficiency by:
- Deploying a cloud-based digital infrastructure to gather all forms of data, and leverage that data by developing sophisticated digital tools that address the toughest pain points or seize the most promising opportunities
- Extending digital capabilities over time to establish a full-fledged digital backbone that is connected to legacy technology
- Ensuring cybersecurity strategy is aligned with business risk considerations, as well as corporate growth opportunity.

Born-digital research: With speed, innovation, and agility come challenges of scale
Born-digital companies—those fountains of innovation capitalizing on exploding technological and analytical capabilities—have transformed industry after industry. They often seem more destined for ongoing success than their born-traditional counterparts (companies arising from the Industrial Age’s pre-Internet economy).
But as our born-digital study shows, many are evolving in self-destructive ways.
We set out to diagnose the problem, identify solutions, and consider what both types of companies can learn from each other—which is a lot.
