Technology drives the need for digital transformation and supports the digitization of an organization. Moreover, there is no single application or technology that enables digital transformation.
There are multiple key processes an organization generally must have to transform. Cloud computing, for example, grants an organization quicker access to its needed software, new functionalities and updates, along with data storage, and enables it to be nimble enough to transform.
Commoditized information technology enables an organization to focus its investments of talent and research and development dollars on customized solutions that support its unique requirements and the processes that differentiate it in the marketplace.
Meanwhile, mobile platforms enable work to happen wherever and whenever. And robust data programs that fuel machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies provide organizations with insights to drive more accurate decisions around sales, marketing, product development and other strategic areas.
