8 statistics on the state of digital transformation in companiesThe digital transformation of businesses and all organisations is happening, and at the very least, we can say is that this revolution has had significant impacts. First, there are the negative consequences, such as the disappearance of many companies over the last 10 years.

85% of companies in the original Fortune 500 list in 1955 are gone! And yet there are frontrunners such as GE, Rolls Royce and Airbus that lead the parade using the new technologies of the digital age to become leaders in their industry. As well, there are thriving businesses that were born due to digital transformation such as Uber or AirBnB.

For all companies that want to ensure their survival, whether SME or multinational, the challenge is the same: to succeed in a digital economy. To better understand the importance of this revolution, here are some key statistics on digital transformation.

Digital transformation is part of the present and future. Not a day goes by that one does not hear about it or implement some of its tools. Companies such as Desjardins put this transition at the heart of their business model as shown in this article.

However, this necessary progression is viewed with a mixture of excitement and fear. Allowing companies that make the leap towards digital transformation to carve the lion's share and become leaders in their industries.

There is no doubt that we are in an unprecedented renaissance phase for business. Those who take advantage of these new technologies to excel in this new digital era, will be the winners in this challenge ... or rather this opportunity.
