Changing how organisation works - ways of working. It also fundamentally is the change in the value chain for the company and from many aspects the digital transformation is essentially how digital solutions are integrating seamlessly to our everyday life

From a vendor, its a sales pitch, from management, usually its just a buzz-word they've heard from somewhere.

Digital Transformation is creating processes using technology to be more efficient, less error prone and faster then are currently in place.  This can be both internal and external processes.  How companies work internally and work with other companies.  These could be already automated processes or current manual processes.  Part of digital transformation is integrating with the bigger ecosystem of technology.

Thanks everyone for sharing your comments. I think this all depends on the client’s understanding of this term and what they are looking to achieve. We need to ask the same question to non technical professionals and see their answers.. I think we’ll get surprising answers from them 😁

The world has changed, our customers wants and needs are changing, the tools we use to service our customer are changing.  Digital transformation is the reworking of our business to align to these changes.

It is all of those items and more.  It is not just about technology.  It is the transformation of the business to a more automated, faster pace, paperless, technology enabled business.  Tech is just one part of it.  And a tech transformation without the business on-board will have limited success.

To me, digital transformation is process of utilizing 'digital' technology to drive efficiency, automation and the acceleration of business. Example: From a collaboration and productivity standpoint, adopting a 'Dominating Ecosystem' like G Suite or Office 365 to reduce the daily friction of teammate collaboration (vs. disjointed best-of-breed tools).

A misnomer . Transformation is a process of change to foster value creation, and/or optimization for improved cost effectiveness. This value based outcome may be enabled by the use of digital technology.

Some good options provided, for me more about automating and simplifying tasks and processes,  improving end-user interactions and engagements.

None of the above. I'm thinking about doing things in a more automated way that's relevant to the year 2020.

I see it as a series of iterative change that a business undertakes in order to shift their model. And it has nothing to do with technology - that is only the enabler, not the outcome. It is aso requires pain - you don't make a butterfly by the sticking wings on a caterpillar.

Leveraging Information (electronic) and automation as an asset to grow a business or for cost optimization.  Not simply replacing with automation but gaining competitive advantage.

For me it’s about moving from older, less modern technology to something that’s more relevant in current day. That could include iOT, but for me, cloud strategy, SaaS, using technology all apply to the category of digital transformation.

Digital Transformation is a culmination of all things listed above, but takes into affect the ability to develop a digital platform that supports the organizations top priorities within their industry. For Higher Education, it's the ability to reach, attract, enroll, retain, and partner with alumni. It's an electronic journey filled with IOT, Mobile technology, AI, Paperless, and social media presence.
