What is Digital Transformation?
Adding new technology, widgets, and tools within your business will not achieve operational efficiencies and digital transformation. Redoing your portals or adding new features to your business application isn’t a digital transformation. Think of it as a strategic competence rather than a support function. It is a great multiplier for superior customer experience and business outcomes.
Digital Transformation is a strategically planned organizational change that empowers teams to deploy highly responsive strategy using cross functional innovative technology. It is a reinvention of businesses models with innovative ideas and culture that work on the backbone of technology and availability of data.
It is the main reason most businesses are moving towards Digital Experience Platforms to create a better interacting environment between customers, partners, and employees. It is imperative for smooth application and service delivery.
