For startups and business leaders everywhere, the next few years will be about determining their organizations’ pace in the digital race.

The implications of digital workforce transformations go beyond updating bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies. Realizing the efficiencies from digitally augmented workforces will require business leaders to fundamentally rethink how employees do their jobs and reassess the back-end systems that support them. Leaders will also need to be comfortable with decentralized decision-making as business decisions get pushed closer to the edges of their business. Industry research is proclaiming the rise of the borderless enterprise. The opportunity is enormous: it can give every business access to an immense, agile workforce that is not only better suited to solving some of the problems that organizations struggle with today but also will do it cost-efficient.
