In today’s fast-moving global economy, business agility is paramount. New technologies are disrupting the business landscape. Customers, partners and regulators all have pressing priorities. Communication and collaboration are becoming ever more complex. And businesses must work harder to compete for talent. All of this requires the utmost agility. Enterprises that are slow to adapt can quickly become obsolete.

Three out of four business leaders say organizational agility is a top or top-three priority.

In our report “Digital Transformation Through Automation,” we made the foundational point that in order to drive greater business agility, a business must automate as much of its technology and processes as possible. But this can’t really be achieved without creating a flexible and scalable backbone that’s based on a consistent hybrid cloud experience.

In the current environment, it’s hard to overestimate the importance of agility. But what exactly does a truly agile organization look like? According to McKinsey & Company, the most agile enterprises share a common purpose and vision across the organization. They employ dynamic and passionate people. They empower their teams with clear, flat, accountable structures. They emphasize transparency, experimentation and rapid decision making. And they remain continually committed to next-generation technology. Technology doesn’t impede these organizations; it empowers them.
