  • Traditional enterprises invest more effort and resources in innovation and new product development, yet are valued less than the businesses based on digital platforms and virtual networks.
  • Traditional enterprises mostly rely on people to make connections. Therefore, people are consumed by a flood of emails and meetings, and feel that they don’t have time to think and innovate.
  • Traditional enterprises depend heavily on functionally managed processes and data to achieve innovation. The data silos created by this approach cause significant inefficiencies in their network management.
  • Traditional enterprises still rely on IT infrastructure and platforms that were created based on management practices of the 20th century. In today’s accelerated business environment, enterprises need to re-think their infrastructure and processes to enable more efficient network management and collaboration. This may require challenging their beliefs and culture.
  • Enterprise solution providers must think about their clients’ efficient network management and collaborative innovation needs, and design solutions that would be compatible with their culture, yet enable simplification and the efficiencies needed.

According to research undertaken by the Wharton School of Business, the Network Orchestrators, that is businesses based on digital platforms and virtual networks, are two to four times more valuable and significantly more profitable than traditional organizations. These companies are more successful because they leverage both the tangible and intangible assets of their networks and real time interactions better.

Can the success principles of the Network Orchestrators be applied by more traditional enterprises? We believe so. Introducing new innovations successfully to the correct markets requires an enterprise to integrate diverse expertise, experiences, knowledge and assets in their network. In most traditional enterprises people are the connectivity enablers, and they are therefore consumed by a never-ending flood of emails and meetings. In today’s fast moving digital world, this is unacceptable. In this webinar, a framework will be presented to simplify enterprise network management and enable more effective and efficient collaborative innovation.
