Digital transformation is more than just words in a strategy or the current buzzword. The visions we cast and execute upon today will likely dictate our organizations’ successes and survival in the future, and collectively shape the world in which we live. Many organizations are now in the midst of digital transformation, reimagining the products and customer experience they deliver from top to bottom. They are driving change in order to serve their customers when, where and how they demand, seamlessly across both digital channels and traditional ones.
While the need for digital transformation is well-known, the journey of how to get there is less clear. Organizations face a common set of challenges. To what extent do we reinvent ourselves? How do we imagine our products, our customer and our partners in 1, 3, 5 or 10 year’s time? What changes are driving our customer’s behavior? How do we get our arms around all of the business and IT changes necessary to realize our digital strategy and create a viable design? How do we get the organization to align around a common vision of the future? How do we prioritize and sequence all of the digital transformation initiatives and align them with the current portfolio? How do we become more adaptive to continual change in the future?
Business and IT architecture are fundamental to digital transformation. Architecture is about envisioning the future and making the decisions necessary to make the digital strategy real. It frames a coordinated set of initiatives, and creates organizational agility necessary to execute future strategies with increased speed. Whether your organization currently has a robust architecture or not, this Digital Transformation Master Class will fundamentally change your approach to transformation, innovation and a proven architecture practice which focuses on customer, business and practice. Whynde Kuehn and Paul Preiss, recognized leaders in business and technology architecture, constantly leveraging it to drive successful digital transformation, team up to provide a dynamic and hands-on class experience. You will learn a reusable approach for building and using architecture throughout digital transformation and then practice applying it to various case studies, giving you an actionable set of skills that you can take away.
