Business Model Transformation: The AI & Cloud Technology Revolution

How AI and Could Technology would revolutionalise Australian organisations?



The availability of AI and Cloud technologies provides capacity for organisations, of every size and sector to transform all or parts of their operations, services and processes to become more effective and valuable. These technological advances create value for incumbent businesses when they are used to innovate, and indeed, transform business models. The opportunities brought by these technologically-enabled capabilities also come with a threat, especially for organisations that lag behind and do not use them to transform and innovate. There are many lessons to be learned from the past as to ‚Äėwhat works’ in innovation and organisational transformation, from previous technological leaps, and there are already many organisations in Australia and beyond that have seized these (AI and Cloud) opportunities. These technologies can disrupt industry norms, through their application that either significantly shifts cost structures, improves service levels and availability, or in other ways transforms the very rules of competition in markets.
