The pandemic has jolted the world out of its comfort zone. In this new world order, investing in innovation to adapt to a dynamic environment isn’t just recommended but is essential to survive, and thrive. In a recent video interview with CXOToday, Daisy Chittilapilly, who leads the Digital Transformation Office for Cisco India and SAARC, discusses the new realities of the digital age and its impact on the enterprise.
With technology becoming the core to everything we do, she believes, even to successfully navigate through this ongoing crisis, the willingness of businesses to digitally disrupt themselves will be the key, and those who can will emerge stronger.
According to Chittilapilly, “Companies can no longer assume that the strategies that have worked for them in the past will continue to work for them in the new normal. Therefore, they need to be willing to take risks and experiment in order to gain an edge.”
Chittilapilly sees the future of work as hybrid. This will further increase the demand for cloud-based collaboration tools and security technologies to keep newly remote or hybrid workforce safe, secure, and productive.
The executive believes that the willingness to collaborate in this new world will be vital to impactful innovation. In this context, she highlights Cisco’s role in supporting its partners and customers as they make this transition to a new way of working, and doing business.
“We have the right tools and technology at our disposal, and more importantly, the intent, to innovate and rebuild a more sustainable, diverse, and inclusive world. I am excited to see just how innovative businesses will become in the coming days,” she says.
