We believe the borders of industries are blurring more and more. Competitors come from places we never imagined before. Cycles are shrinking constantly. We live a MVP era. Solutions must be implemented faster, provide value, been evaluated and refined in following cycles. Deliver faster, more frequently and provide incremental value.

Many key trends will shape the future of our industry and by consequence the future of all other industries. Among the main trends and technologies, Cloud, Mobile, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (Machine Learning), Internet of Things, Social and Blockchain are the key force that will influence and shape the future of IT. Believing in this trends, Discover has invested in order to acquire knowledge and capabilities on those areas, in other to prepare itself to the future. However, it needs to be done in a way that preserve its main sources of revenues. For this reason Discover sees itself as a bimodal or ambidexter organization.
