The stakes are high for service providers trying to transition to digital technologies and business models. Currently there is no clear leader in the space. One of the biggest barriers to providers rotating to digital is gaining experienced digital talent.
I’ve been watching providers’ strategies to acquire the necessary talent, and Wipro just made a move that puts a new twist into the race to digital leadership. Wipro just launched Hybrid Crowd, a first-of-its-kind platform enabling companies to crowdsource digital projects to certified experts. It’s a relatively new technology service, and I believe it has the potential to be quite disruptive.
