Deep down inside, there’s a superhero in all of us waiting to pull out a cape and save the world from annihilation, destruction, and social injustice. The higher the stakes, the stronger the desire to triumph over evil and embrace that all-important “hell yeah” moment.

Sir Winston S. Churchill once shared the wisdom, “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to have changed often.” This statement, although more than 65 years old, remains true as we all deal with a barrage of digital disruption.

Technology is driving a deep interconnection between all business process — from customer experience to supply chain management — to drive a stronger influence and leadership in technology as it relates to the business. Every day, we see this in action as companies such as Amazon, Netflix, and Uber go from startup to mainstream darling in a stunningly short amount of time by using technology to change the way products and services are delivered, as well as the products themselves.
