Changing customer expectations, advancement of new technologies and business model innovations are aggressively accelerating the need for digitalization globally. Additionally the COVID -19 pandemic has acted as a catalyst in helping us realize the benefit and need of establishing a digitally equipped organization.

 

 Digital transformation will have major implications on the ‘way of doing work’ by redefining the nature of jobs, roles and required skills; many jobs will be automated, others will be created, and many core tasks of remaining jobs will change significantly. 

 

And we expect this number to only increase. Though this indicates a high level of awareness towards digitization, organizations however are facing significant challenges in the shift of their workforce, mainly in the form of: 

 

 

36%

 

 

of organizations in the Middle East are likely to accelerate the use of AI & Automation in 2020
