Silicon Valley executive, thought leader, and New York Times best-selling author Inder Sidhu shows how cloud computing, social media, mobility, sensors, apps, big data analytics, and more can be brought together in virtually infinite combinations to create opportunities and pose risks previously unimaginable.

Editorial Reviews

Review
“By 2020, 75 percent of businesses will be fully digital, yet only a few have a real digital strategy. The Digital Revolution provides powerful insights and practical examples of how to develop a digital roadmap. Countries, cities, and companies must disrupt themselves or be disrupted in this new digital world.”
--John Chambers, Executive Chairman, Cisco Systems

“The online digital revolution is affecting all parts of our world. This timely book is filled with interesting scenarios of disruption and discusses a variety of challenges arising in the new information age. Reading it will help you understand how this revolution will affect your job, your company, and your future.”
--John Hennessy, President, Stanford University Board Member, Google and Cisco

The Digital Revolution is a thoughtful and creative addition to the conversation on one of the major forces shaping our world--digital disruption. Inder Sidhu explores both the challenges and opportunities arising from new technologies. He offers valuable insight into the ways in which organizations will need to adapt and change--from becoming radically transparent, to engaging connected consumers, to increasing asset utilization, to redesigning the organization, to innovating at speed.”
--Dominic Barton, Global Managing Director, McKinsey & Company

“Inder Sidhu has his finger on the pulse of ‘The Internet of Everything’--not only today’s cutting edge from Tesla to Uber, but also where the digital revolution will take us. He has convinced me that the best is yet to come, indeed that we are only at the beginning of the transformative impact of digitization.”
--Geoffrey Garrett, Dean, The Wharton School

3Great synopsis for Laypeople
By TheGreatBeijing
Broad synopsis of past and recent trends in the use of technology. Perfect for laypeople, like me. Wish the book went more in depth in each area so if the author's goal was to arouse curiosity, he succeeded. I enjoyed the read.

5The ultimate guidebook for digital transformation
By Sarah H
With a combination of compelling facts, thoughtful analysis, and lucid storytelling, Inder Sidhu makes the case that the digital revolution is here, whether we're ready or not. Business leaders who want to stay ahead of the curve by exploiting new advances would be well-served to use The Digital Revolution as a guidebook. Mr. Sidhu makes the case that change is no longer a growth strategy or even a competitive advantage; it is a survival imperative. And while many books in this sphere gloss over the difficulties of massive transformation, Mr. Sidhu actually makes realistic suggestions for overcoming challenges. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to synthesize the big technology ideas we hear about every day into a cogent strategy.

This book does an outstanding job of describing the disruption that is taking place in every industry and the approach that is needed to succeed in a digital economy. Using specific examples helps drive home the critical points, from the new ways that data is being used to the security and privacy challenges that come with new tools. As technical literacy has increased, so have expectations, and people expecting to succeed in today's business environment can get a better handle on how to please their customers by reading the insights shared by these authors.
