The growth and future of e-commerce in the Middle East

Perhaps the most significant of all recent developments in retail is the growth and progress of e-commerce. According to a joint study by Dubai Economy and Visa [1], the UAE is currently the most advanced e-commerce market in the Middle East and North Africa, revealing an estimated annual growth of 23% between 2018 and 2022. While customers continue to enjoy the ‘destination shopping’ aspect of visiting a physical store, COVID-19 has encouraged many people to try e-commerce for the first time. This jump in online users is not expected to reduce.

The Digital Transformation journey requires the repositioning of IT in the organisation. For Digital Transformation to succeed, IT must evolve from a cost centre to an integral part of the value chain towards the customer. Many asset-heavy companies transform into “technology” companies, in which data comes to substitute for many of the assets previously listed on the balance sheet, drives customer experience and allows the creation of new business models. As a result, many formerly outsourced or “bought” IT functions and solutions are brought in-house.

We discussed with IT leaders across industries how the choice between “making it” versus “buying it” has affected the IT makeup of their organisations, interactions with business stakeholders, and the impact on talent acquisition and retention.

Physicians, consumers and regulators are increasingly using connected or fully-digital technologies, with some describing it as a major revolution. After 20 centuries of medicine in which doctors invariably met patients in person – the same room at the same time – the use of telemedicine is a real paradigm shift.

Digital Transformation and Leadership Competencies
You only see it when you understand it. 

Lewis Carroll once quipped that if you do not know where you are going, any road will get you there. Similarly, if you cannot define digital, any transformation will take you there.

Like a case of bad acne, “digital” sprouts a plethora of truisms. Too many offerings, channels, messages. Creative destruction and hyper-competition. Old barriers to competition disappear. Uncertainty and unpredictability multiply. The end of sustainable competitive advantage. Almost anything

The ravaging pandemic is indeed taking a heavy toll with increased daily infections, deaths (and recoveries) but also a devastating effect on the economies of nations in its wake. Anecdotal evidence points to CEOs worldwide coming to terms with the reality that business will be anything but normal over the coming months.
