What is Digital Transformation?
Digital transformation is the process of adopting digital technologies like mobile, cloud, IoT, big data, AI, and Machine Learning, etc., to reimagine the way a business operates. It creates new processes, a new culture, and customer experiences.
Netflix and Uber are good examples of digital transformation of business. Both companies fundamentally changed the way the business was earlier done. Netflix changed the way people watched movies and TV shows. Uber changed the way people would hire a taxi. They created new customer experiences through digital technologies.
Digital transformation is all about customers. Every change you make in your organization is geared towards meeting the needs of the customer and driving her customers. And it’s not easy as customer behavior has significantly changed. Today’s customers are empowered, socially connected, and value experiences.
