Articles in the business technology press are fond of the phrase ‘digital transformation’, but the phrase is as broad and nebulous today as ‘digital technology’.
Transforming your organization or company by use of technology sums up the process of digital transformation, but the means by which that’s achieved – the products or strategies deployed, too – varies widely from industry vertical to vertical.
The use of IIoT (industrial internet of things) is having a considerable impact on manufacturing, building management, logistics and the broad church that covers the whole concept of ‘smart cities’. But that technology might have little effect on a service-based organization, like financial concerns, pure-play e-commerce, or online publishing.
