Grebe: BCG's Technology Advantage practice provides its technology and digital services to companies in all industries as well as to organizations in the public sector. Globally, we have more than 3,000 staff members across BCG, BCG Platinion, and BCG Digital Ventures. The practice is organized around four core topics: • Digitizing the business. This topic covers: transforming the operating model of the entire value chain and digitizing the customer experience, core processes, and support functions; • Implementing a Data and Digital Platform. This entails conceptualizing and building a data and digital platform with next-generation capabilities. Such a platform enables an organization to scale digital initiatives while using legacy systems; • Leveraging Software and Agile way of working. This topic focuses on helping organizations adapt and "upskill" so that they can leverage the potential of agile methods, the software business model, and open application programming interfaces; • Digitizing the Tech Function. This addresses digitizing an organization's technology function and enabling it to facilitate digital business.
