Probably, that we should start to look at what we need when we “transform” by looking at what we have now. Digital transformation is more than just reporting KPI’s in a new manner, it’s transforming in to a competitive, data-driven asset to the company. The transformation is everything from how we work, to how we supply and interact with users while acting environmentally savvy.

Well, not just supply chain, but digital transformation in general.

That all it takes is a new piece of technology.

Similar to Anthony's answer, that digital transformation is about the technology.

Mark, this one would have to be the biggest myth out right? Anyone who starts with the solution has probably already gone off track in my view.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.31%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.52%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.12%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%
