  1. 72 percent of executives surveyed said they are susceptible to digital disruption in the next three years.
  2. Only 20 percent of Chief Strategy Officers believe their companies are highly prepared for sudden industry disruption.
  3. Nearly 140 private companies working to advance artificial intelligence technologies have been acquired since 2011, and over 40 acquisitions occurred in 2016 alone.
  4. On average, an S&P 500 company is replaced every two weeks.
  5. Nearly 50 percent of the current S&P 500 won’t exist over the next 10 years.
