Jason Bloomberg, a leading IT industry analyst, has been covering the topic of digital transformation for four years at Forbes. Digital transformation was a rather new topic back in 2014, but in today’s business landscape, it has become an essential aspect of any business looking to position themselves for the future. Bloomberg writes about four core characteristics of any digital transformation: being customer-driven, requires end-to-end transformation across the organization, being more about organizational and cultural change rather than technological, and that it does not have an end state. In the article, he breaks down these core characteristics into more, but he does note that one thing is for certain: “the companies that will survive and thrive in the digital era are the ones that deal with change better and faster.”
