I might have covered some of this in an earlier post reply. Our business mix has shifted more to the new age topics you allude to.

We are doing 2 main things. Client service wise, we jointly determine the business value of enhanced tech IQ: could be biz model innovation, re doing the value chain, customer engagement, portfolio refresh, exiting legacy, culture boost around use cases or new delivery model, etc.

On the supply side, we are investing in the new capabilities: just bought a data/analytics company, may buy more, trying to onboard and hire more specialist capabilities, enhancing our senior training, exploring allianced with various players. We dont want or need to be a tech showroom but are building digital IQ ahead of client demand.
