Australian Digital Transformation Lab

  1. 1. Australian Digital Transformation Lab A Capgemini Australia and University of Sydney Business School joint venture Background The digital world is creating a raft of innovations that are pushing the boundaries of mobile, social and other emerging platforms. This is displacing established companies, disrupting business models, and forcing companies to react. As a market Australia has a unique set of conditions when it comes to digital; a geographically dispersed, but highly digital-savvy population, a lower level of investment in digital in some sectors than peers overseas, but a higher level of competition, both domestic and particularly international, for customers through digital. With this in mind, how should Australian companies respond? Digital is displacing established companies, disrupting business models, and forcing companies to react. Research Domains The Australian Digital Transformation Lab is setting new standards for Australian businesses by delivering re-usable tools and frameworks to integrate different digital domains. Combining rigorous analysis and domain specific insights this will provide Capgemini’s clients with robust frameworks to deliver value from their digital transformation programs.
