Data and digitization have strategic implications that impact the future viability of the organization. Technology is fundamentally reshaping business models, reinventing how business is done and redesigning how customers interact with your companies. Most importantly, instead of process driving technology, innovative technology is driving process.
Thus, whether your enterprise survives and thrives depends on a successful digital transformation.
