Creating the Foundation for Digital Transformation

Everyone is talking about digital transformation, so much so that it sounds like a utopia of insight and efficiency. There is no utopia in IT, but there is the potential for creating a foundation for communication and collaboration between and among employees, partners, suppliers, and customers. The ultimate goal: high levels of productivity throughout an ecosystem, to make enterprises smarter,
faster, and more competitive.

Digital transformation is a way to make enterprises more technologically adept—that is, going beyond using IT as a utility to infusing technology deeper into business processes. It is a way to bring data together for an almost omniscient view of the enterprise. It helps executives see how business processes interact, and helps them react swiftly and appropriately to changes in their markets and business.
