Listening to the media or professional social networks, the term digital transformation is on everyone’s lips. In 2023 we are in the digital era, no one can ignore this set of innovations. If a company, whatever its size is, wants to stay competitive, they need to adopt, or even, must embrace digital initiatives. However, the main inquiry revolves around defining digital transformation and understanding how businesses can effectively navigate this terrain to attain success.
Digital transformation it all started back in the '70s, when computers were just getting started from paper-based records, meaning analogue, to digital-record-keeping systems. The whole idea was to make things more efficient via digitization. Then, in the '90s, we witnessed the disruption caused by the rise of eCommerce and online banking, basically taking everything that used to happen offline and putting it on the internet. And in the mid-2000s, social media came along and ended up transforming completely the way we communicate.
At first, companies were all about using digital tools to connect with customers. But as time passed, they realized they needed dedicated teams to handle all that digitalisation. In recent years, digital transformation has become a big deal again because businesses want to stay competitive and continue evolving; it's a key driver of digital innovation and growth.
Working in the exciting world of digital transformation is a kind of gold rush, a modern-day El Dorado. It's so vast that you can change fields completely and discover new things and professions. Your desires dictate your trajectory, and your trajectory will lead you to achievement, navigating a digital future. Of course, this is a field that will require mastery of certain essential notions, but you'll be able to adjust the cursor between the technical and the functional. Mastering vital financial flows or accelerating efficiency through the development of AI. You'll be able to move from an in-depth knowledge of a sector and its specificities to total mastery of an innovative technology, which will give you a competitive edge.
