Amid change and turmoil, digital transformation is continuing – and accelerating. It is a time of challenge and opportunity for those who can seize it. Following OpenText World, we spoke with OpenText CEO & CTO Mark J. Barrenechea about the theme of his keynote, leadership through a pandemic, and what’s next for the information management company.
At OpenText World, you spoke about ‘the Great Rethink’, that we’re going through as a result of COVID-19. How should companies be thinking about this moment?
We are going through the fastest technology disruption in the history of the world. The shift to Industry 4.0 had already resulted in a huge increase in connectivity, automation, AI, and computing power. The response to COVID-19 has accelerated this process and forever changed the business environment.
