You require new skills to take advantage of many of the big trends. If you want to integrate Internet-of-Things technologies, you will have to learn how to handle the devices, upgrade processes, huge amounts of generated data, and so on. If you want to serve your demanding customers on many channels, you will have to handle web and mobile development, and prepare for emerging new channels too. If you want to combine the cool new product of a FinTech or InsurTech startup with your own online services, you will need proper integration and bridging functionality. If you are not selling hardware anymore but rent it out as part of a service contract to your customer, you will have to master a different set of processes. This includes customer and partner interfaces, and so on. And in most cases, you will have to deal with security big time. Your customers rightfully expect this, and regulations demand it.
