The crisis: tighter budget constraints
In the current context, many companies are looking to save money, depriving themselves of certain investment projects. As Mathilde explains, “Today we are faced with clients with stronger budgetary constraints, reducing their budgetary capacities. This is not necessarily the most relevant choice, because the crisis is pushing us to invest, to transform ourselves, to digitalize faster, to accelerate certain transformation processes in order to be able to pass this test.”
75% of companies are accelerating their transformation because of the pandemic.
The crisis reveals the challenges
The Covid crisis is a combination of two needs that are sometimes difficult to reconcile, given the context. The first is operational with digitalization. The planned need becomes immediate. “Some groups were very late in their digitization process and had to equip their teams in a forced march in a few weeks.” The other need is economic, with the management of the impact of this crisis. “Conjunctively, the Covid crisis is a catalyst/revealer of the challenges of our society, not only because of the financial crisis, but also because the crisis questions some of the fundamentals of society and sustainable development is one of them.”
