I am regularly asked to summarize my many posts. I thought it would be a good idea to publish on this blog, every Monday, some of the most relevant articles that I have already shared with you on my social networks.
Today I will share some of the most relevant articles about Digital Transformation and in what form you can find it in today’s life. I will also comment on the articles.
A good interview that explains how Ivanti, the IT software company, will help digital transformation thanks to their holistic offerings on data management and security. I like the fact that this gentleman combines both digital transformation and guidelines/regulations. Digital transformation is not only about tools or good will, it is also respecting values and guidelines.
Let’s have a look at how digital transformation can help all type of industries. In China, traditional sectors such as farming can also benefit from going digital. This is a disruptive view but one not to be forgotten.
Banks need to change their way of doing business. They need to apply to their customer’s lifestyle. They need to be more mobile and have less constraints. Not easy but vital for their development. In this article you will be able to see how a major bank goes big on mobile apps to improve their customer experience. It will not only help their business but their brand too. Watch this space, banks will (re)volutionize their business.
Changes in CEOs are common in digital companies. Now we see more and more “digital” CEOs going to the “traditional” side to improve and accelerate digital transformation. It is not easy for the brand nor for the CEO. Nike is no exception, have a read…. this is very interesting.
Transformation is risky business. It can bring massive disruption to a company, and in the digital age has been largely associated with multi-year projects, massive outlays of investment, and statistics that say it won’t work. This article shows how digital transformation activity can help companies as long as they are reasonable. There are a lot of projects out there and a lot fail. Let’s learn from mistakes and ensure we start switching the ratio towards success.
The Mena region (Middle East and North Africa) sees digital transformation as a challenge like anywhere else in the world. I thought it would be interesting to read about different parts of the world in this disruptive week (we started with China and now with the Mena region).
And to finish this disruptive week, let’s have a look at this press release announcing a staggering 2.3 trillion USD in 2023 of worldwide spending in digital transformation. This market is huge. What is important to know though is however big the market is, the most important element is to see what benefit your company can get from starting a digital transformation project. It takes time, money and resources and it needs to be planned well to ensure success.
