   In todays’ fast paced and turbulent business environment, sensing changes and responding with equal speed is proving to be a critical factor for success. Thanks to social media and aggressive marketing, market developments and fast changing technological advancements which influences customer’s decisions. Due to this fast pace of development and short-lived expectation of the market, the time available to respond to changes has drastically reduced. The Trained workforce must be abreast with the developments in the industry and enabled with implementation of technologies that minimizes time between data collection, analysis and decision making that support organizations to respond to market situations. The technology also needs to move away from conventional data from forms to data from unstructured market sources like the social networks, IOTs etc.
From the above it is clear that the measure of “Enterprise Agility” hinges on four major factors –
      •    Organization Design to create an Agile and Evolving enterprise – some of the key indicators are (a) Simplified Strategies, (b) Lowered Decision Making, (c) Collaborative Partnerships, (d) Risk Management
