In a similar way, Da Rold says service providers looking to differentiate themselves in the market and evolve rapidly toward a bimodal approach must create a practical roadmap of the many changes required for a successful bimodal transformation.
“When providers make the decision to embrace a bimodal work style and capabilities, they must also consider the overall go-to-market, sales and partnering strategy as well,” Da Rold adds.
“Providers that fail to co-innovate with their customers will not realise the full potential of digital business.”
Da Rold believes service Providers that demonstrate understanding, alignment and prioritisation of both Mode 1 and Mode 2 initiatives will accelerate their relevance and exploit large opportunities.
“Winning providers will co-innovate with customers, get linked into their POC and pilots, and ramp up in influence, volumes and large-scale Mode 1 transformation and modernisation projects,” Da Rold adds.
“Providers that are unable to meet Mode 2 business buyers' expectations of speed, trust and credibility will face a market of cost-reduction-oriented services, frozen IT budgets and high competition for traditional spending.”
