Digital Business Success Depends on Civilization Infrastructure

Civilization infrastructure creates the fundamental capacity for digital businesses to operate at scale and sets the rules for how everything works — not just business but society as a whole. CIOs will have to help the enterprise build parts of this infrastructure and devise a business strategy based on dominating some piece of it. Industrial companies couldn't ignore railways and water lines when they built factories. Likewise, enterprises can't ignore civilization infrastructure when they build digital businesses.

The Research Special Report describes the implications of civilization infrastructure and digital society, and advises CIOs how to help their enterprise seize its opportunities while mitigating the risks.
