Small Changes, Big Impact: Understanding Digital Transformation

This transformation fundamentally changes how businesses operate and deliver value.
Many believe digital transformation is simply using the cloud and analytics. However, those are only two elements of a digital transformation. A comprehensive transformation occurs only when an organization also improves its integration, automation, and system flexibility.
With a successful digital transformation, tackling new challenges, shifting operations, and updating business models are effortless.
