What does it take to succeed in the Transformative Age?
The nature of work is evolving fast, new generations are now dominating the workforce and we’re all being asked to adopt new behaviors. To be more innovative, more agile, more collaborative, more everything.

Business is anything but usual. And navigating the Transformative Age demands we ask better questions.

• How can AI enhance human potential?
• Could you execute your strategy better by seeing digital from every angle?
• Do you change your people or change the way your people work?
• Does cybersecurity only become a priority once you’ve been attacked?

We believe better questions come from better connections. This means embracing a diversity of ideas and a rich mix of talents, backgrounds
and experience. These combined perspectives will give you new insights and equip you to operate in an entirely new way.

It’s clear that the more we all connect, the better able we are to meet the complex challenges of our times, and forge new paths to growth.

Welcome to the Transformative Age
An age where the upside of disruption can create limitless opportunities. An age that demands better questions. And better connections.

Are you ready to navigate the Transformative Age?

Digital campaigns and solutions

Digital strategy and innovation

Solutions:


Our clients operate in a constant state of emergence. Companies must evolve at a speed that matches the pace of digital technology adoption, and the way customers experience a company is as important as the company’s products and services.

Every internal business model and process is vulnerable to not keeping pace. Any company that fails to take advantage of existing and emerging digital technologies will be left behind.

We believe that converting these disruptions to opportunities requires a different kind of strategy – a “re-strategy” manifesto that evolves at digital speed.

We can help you:
• Formulate your digital strategy
• Refresh your operating model
• Inspire the customer and employee behavior you want


Here’s a challenge: devising an innovation strategy that creates and captures economic value. No wonder so many companies struggle to drive real results. They don’t know how best to create, incubate and activate strategies, and commercialize opportunities.

We have an agile innovation approach to help clients instill a core innovation strategy across the entire organization.

What we offer:
• Just-in-time scaling: experiments without massive up-front investments in people, process and technology
• Disruptive outsourcing: metrics to determine when to persevere, redirect or disengage
• Commercialization and scale: from entrepreneurial to traditional management


Technology is rapidly changing how goods and services are sold, where companies base their operations, how they connect with their customers – and virtually every decision has a tax implication. Tax authorities are struggling to keep pace and taxpayers are struggling to comply as technology and the burgeoning digital economy drive new digital tax laws across industries and around the world. We can help you on your digital journey, identifying and advising you on how to deal with complex digital tax issues and helping you achieve both digital tax effectiveness and digital confidence.


Digital is a continuous form of disruption to new and existing business models, products, services or experiences, enabled by data and technology across the enterprise.

Digital is not an IT strategy or one-off investment. The scale of transformation needed requires a long-term capital strategy. The key challenge for many companies will be a lack of sufficient capital to meet their digital ambition.

Businesses need to take a holistic view and incorporate an effective capital strategy into their business strategy.

Digital Deal Economy highlights:
• 87% are explicitly considering digital transformation in their capital allocation planning
• 55% have a sophisticated method in place to quantify the capital needed
• 67% of companies are planning to use M&A to upgrade their digital capabilities


Protecting your investment

How do I protect acquisitions from digital disruption? Digital is a continuous form of disruption to new and existing business models, products, services or experiences, enabled by data and technology across the enterprise.

Digital disruption brings challenges and opportunities to the business models of companies across all sectors globally. It involves the interplay between many aspects of a company’s operating model, including corporate strategy, customer experience, supply/value chain management, IP ownership, tax planning and IT.

From assessing value drivers to due diligence, there are challenges that need addressing when dealing with M&A driven by digital transformation.

Acquirers need more sophisticated and powerful processes for identifying, approaching and screening opportunities. Working with the right advisor can play a pivotal role in understanding and realizing value from a transaction, while also reducing risks.

Maximize return on investment
How do I best value a digital business? Digital is a continuous form of disruption to new and existing business models, products, services or experiences, enabled by data and technology across the enterprise.

Digital is disrupting the traditional business ecosystem and competitive landscape. Playing fields are being leveled, giving small start-up companies or non-traditional competitors the same level of market access as an established company.

Young companies are difficult to value for a number of reasons. Some are start-ups with new technologies and idea businesses, with little or no revenues and operating losses. Even young companies that are profitable have short histories and most young firms are dependent upon private capital – initially owner savings and venture capital and private equity later on.

As a result, many of the standard techniques we use to estimate cash flows, growth rates and discount rates either do not work or yield unrealistic numbers. In addition, the fact that most young companies do not survive has to be considered somewhere in the valuation.

Digital experience and transformation

Solutions:


Most companies know they should be doing more with digital – particularly when it comes to the customer experience.

Our clients often ask us how they can:
• Keep pace without knowing the future
• Prepare to compete against a company that doesn’t yet exist
• Balance what is working today with what needs to change for tomorrow

We believe the answers lie in a different kind of transformation. It’s not about implementing technology to improve the customer experience – it’s about running a business like a digital leader.

Rather than undertaking various digital projects in pockets across the organization, companies can industrialize innovation across their entire business – creating a culture that continuously iterates and improves the customer experience.

We can help you:
• Stop “doing digital” and start “being digital”
• Drive experience transformation
• Create new sources of value by prioritizing customer experience investments

Digital operations

Many of our clients know their operating models aren’t fit for purpose in a digital world. First up – they need to overhaul their operations by applying digital to core business processes in supply chain, finance and HR.

While digital capabilities can often be found in various pockets, many organizations know they’re a long way from infusing digital where it needs to be: throughout their business.

Enhanced digital operations allow leaders to achieve a disruptive and agile organization – resulting in performance breakthroughs and new business opportunities.

Benefits:
• Traditional approaches to business operations have only achieved a savings of 3%-5% for cost of goods and 5%-10% for selling and general-administrative expenses. Digital operations have the ability to deliver 25%-40% of cost savings.
• Digital has the ability to drive higher levels of productivity run time using a connected supply chain with IoT, 3D printing, automated-guided vehicles and robotics.
• Enterprise-wide transformation can be enabled by predictive workforce analytics, augmented reality and cloud technology.

Solutions:







Tax technology. Technology both defines and underpins the workings of the new digital tax function and its operating model strategy. Tax-specific technology makes it possible to answer the mandates of the global digital economy and meet the demands of changing tax data flows, data analytics and data requirements. This new tax function needs new skillsets as well, including a tax technologist who is multilingual, fluent in the languages of tax, finance and IT. These changes have also given rise to EY’s Digital Tax.Tech, with focus on connecting the people, process and technologies that companies need to fuel innovation, power competitive advantage and build a high-performing tax function.

Tax big data. Data drives all things digital. You may already be using big data to track and improve customer activities and experience. Now, managing tax big data and leveraging it for better visibility into and out of the enterprise has become a critical success factor as well. Tax big data management is scalable – it not only enables more efficient compliance, it also supports the entire tax function, from planning through controversy. We can help you get more out of your tax big data, turning it into a valuable enterprise asset that can improve visibility and provide insight to facilitate strategic business decisions.

Organizations can start this transformation by building a digital trust framework to capture the value create value by benefiting from the right risks brought by Digital presents while staying compliant, capable and protected across the digital ecosystem.

Digitalization is helping make governments stronger, faster and smarter as tax authorities are harnessing the power of digital to improve tax administration, counter fraud and facilitate taxpayer compliance. They’re requiring near real-time data reporting and performing increasingly sophisticated analytics. Companies have to keep pace and EY can help bridge the gap between data compliance and tax readiness. We create processes and leverage leading-edge technologies to capture and analyze real-time data streams, going beyond compliance to inform valuable business insights, prepare digital responses, enhance transparency – both inside and out – and help build digital confidence among regulators, your shareholders and stakeholders.

Today, change is coming faster than ever before – and there is more of it. The sheer velocity of change has upended the business environment and rearranged the landscape.

Organizations must identify, assess and address emerging risks without losing sight of their existing business and control environment. They are not only working to get ahead of the curve – often they are struggling to keep up – and not always succeeding.

Management, audit committees and boards of directors rely on internal audit (IA) to provide assessments and assurance around the effectiveness of controls and company processes, while also providing support in a diverse array of risk and business process improvement areas.

Our services can help clients strategically assess, remediate and improve control issues identified, while also elevating the profile of internal audit in identifying and addressing complex emerging risk areas.

For us, a better working world means helping to solve big, complex industry issues and capitalizing on opportunities to help clients grow, optimize and protect their businesses. Looking at people as part of an integrated business strategy, organizations are able to gain a competitive people advantage. We team globally to help you advance your organization and, as a result, strengthen both the value of your workforce and your people’s roles and careers.

Big, complex business transformation, infrastructure and IT programs promise a lot of value – but often fail to deliver. Program management is about reaping the benefits of change.

We help you turn big, complex programs into big, sustainable value.

For us, a better working world means helping you deliver outcomes that grow, optimize and protect your business.

We believe that when program management and business transformation work better, the world works better. So we work to understand your specific issues and are driven to ask better questions:
• Would you rather be 5% under budget and late, or 10% over budget and a year ahead?
• Should you address processes first and be more efficient over time, or simply comply with regulations to avoid potentially massive fines?
Whatever the answer, we can help you tame the chaos of large programs, control every moving part and unlock value for the long term.

• Business improvement, by assessing risks and controls related to business imperatives, such as launching new products/services, implementing new technologies or remediating control issues
• Providing industry/sector insights and thought leadership with a focus on risk and control matters


Every challenge and every opportunity an organization faces today demands change. And with change comes risk. Some risks you can see, some you can predict, some you can plan for, and some you can’t.

Organizations are not created to manage risk; they are created to generate value as part of a broader aspirational purpose. That purpose is achieved through a series of strategic business decisions that require taking risks – these risks impact business performance. Organizations that identify, manage and respond to these risks well are positioned to grow and remain successful.

Our understanding of the issues around risk – the risks you can see as well as the ones you can’t – inspire us to ask better questions. By working globally with organizations, we can create innovative answers that help enhance and accelerate business performance.

Transforming the way they manage risk requires business to challenge the way they think about, identify, manage, and, respond to it. Organizations need to look beyond manageable risks (financial, operational, regulatory), better align their risk and business objectives, improve coordination and alignment of risk activities across the organization, and more effectively leverage technology so that they can better respond to their different risks.

Together, we can help deliver better outcomes and long-lasting results, from strategy to execution.
