- Digital transformation is a leading force in business today. In some cases this is driven by so-called digital native organizations wreaking havoc on older companies in an industry. In some cases those older companies are seizing the opportunity before the change is forced upon them. Whether it's based upon employing a shrewd offense or cautious defense, this change will impact all companies. But what is digital really? Who should own it within the enterprise? What processes and technologies are necessary to bring it to life.

In this course we'll cover the relevant definitions of digital, including the differences between digitization, digitalization, and digital transformation. We will define the stages of digital maturity so that you can identify where you stand today and chart the course to greater levels of maturity.
