The best advisors know how to use innovative technologies to create tailored solutions that achieve tangible business results
Advisors must also consider organizational constraints related to people, process, and technology. Surprisingly, the technology aspect of digital transformation is for some often the easiest. As one industry analyst put it, “Sociology is harder than technology."

Typical consulting firms, systems integrators, and outsourcing firms struggle to achieve this combination of skills. This is where a new breed of trusted advisors can take center stage.
