About this talk

Why did we hear so much about “Digital Transformation” in 2016, and frankly what does it mean? While it's easy to dismiss the phrase with an eye-roll, there's no better phrase to represent improving how IT is used to help drive business innovation...and the huge changes organizations must go through to be successful. This webinar with Nick Patience, Research Vice President for 451 Research's software team, and Michael Coté of Pivotal will discuss a pragmatic definition and approach to Digital Transformation as seen through the experiences of organizations who've lived through it. Digital Transformation is about fundamentally rebuilding business and IT processes, not just about building apps. 451 Research defines Digital Transformation as “a result of IT innovation that is aligned with and driven by a well-planned business strategy, with the goal of transforming how organizations serve customers, employees and partners.” Some main features of a successful transformation include the ability to quickly react to market demands, and use information to make better decisions and serve constituents more effectively. In this webinar Nick Patience of 451 Research and Pivotal’s Michael Cote will discuss: - Why now is the time for Digital Transformation - How the balance of power between customer and provider contributes to this new revolution - Shifting priorities that require new practices and processes and the technical tools and platforms that support them - Real-world examples of organizations that have been there (we’ll share all the gorey details, including what worked and didn't work for them)
