JUAN JOSÉ DE LA TORRE (DUBAI) /
VICE PRESIDENT DIGITAL AT INTIGRAL
DIGITAL DISRUPTION INSIDE TRADITIONAL COMPANIES
The world is constantly being disrupted by small, fast and lean startups who are leveraging technology to blindside traditional and incumbent players in mainstream markets. These startups, who may be small in size but are big in ideas, are disrupting traditional companies in industries from banking to airlines, shipping companies to telecoms. It is now a challenge for these big companies to compete with the lower prices, fast time to market and superior customer experiences these startups are bringing to the table. In order to stay ahead, traditional companies need to embrace these challengers and innovate. Digital businesses can offer the perfect set of tools in order to make traditional companies disruptors in their own markets. The objective of this speaking is to showcase how traditional companies can leverage the startup ecosystem to innovate and stay ahead of their competition.
This presentation focuses on developing the concept of how corporations can leverage startups and their ecosystem to innovate.
As such, the presentation starts by assessing the current market scenario and the changing forces governing it, with particular focus on the proliferation of startups and format invaders that are challenging corporations.
It will then show case recent and tangible case studies that illustrate how disruptive startups can actually partner with traditional companies (rather than simply challenge them) to create truly market driven innovation.
Finally, the presentation provides key learnings and take-aways on how you too can create digital disruption in your industry.
