He said, “Every organization in this world is being challenged by the rapidly-changing landscape of global business. Old ways of thinking become irrelevant when digital technology is playing a massive role in transforming people behavior now and the future.  The new landscape is formed with connectivity of all industries, forming an ecosystem with diverse members and a linkage of various ecosystems. This creates a new business model featuring platforms and solutions, in addition to products and services, combining the following three aspects to better respond to human needs.
The first group: Incumbents or existing stakeholders in old industries.

The second group: Tech entrepreneurs or fast operators that come into existence to provide specific human solutions.

The third group: Digital giants or large-scale tech firms with tendency to expand their operation scope and business size to cover every industry.
Tech entrepreneurs and digital giants play an important role in linking various industries together.  To keep with the changing behavior of humans or consumers, the companies under the first group need to work with the second and third groups to survive and thrive in a sustainable manner”
