Digital transformation is an organizations adoption of digital information technology to digitize non-digital products, services or operations. Information technology (IT) is the use of computers to create, process, store, retrieve, and exchange all kinds of data and information. The goal for its implementation is to increase value through innovation, invention, customer experience or efficiency. Digital transformation is broader than just the digitization of existing processes. It is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, fundamentally changing how you operate and deliver value to customers.

This course serves as a launch into the topic of digital transformation. We examine the reasons behind the movement, methods to evaluate your organization’s current capabilities towards transformation and key steps needed in moving your organization further along in the transformation maturity process. Other courses will delve further into steps taken during the transformation process.

A structured overview of "new" digital transformation process which in fact has been going on since mid 20th century. Interesting is how old processes are given new names and places in some new framework. "Feet on the ground" solders do know that there is lots of hype and politics in this process.. especially when big corporations are involved.

Not my favorite subject presented by Lynn as the scope of "digital transformation" seems far to broad to be squeezed into the usual framework favored by auditors. That said, it does help define some of the terms and variables associated with the concept.
