11 Resources to Inspire & Guide Your Digital Transformation
Posted by on October 22, 2019
What emotions do you feel when you see that phrase? It can sound optimistic, full of hope for a bright new future. Or perhaps it’s ominous—a reminder for those lagging behind that they can’t stop progress.
Or, and let’s be honest here: It might make you roll your eyes. “Digital transformation” is one of those phrases that is so broad and so ever-present that you might be tired of seeing it. What does it really mean, anyway? How is it relevant to my business? Is it more than marketing-speak?
We recently published a guide to help CIOs and IT leaders make sense of digital transformation: What it is, why it matters, and how to get your initiative started. It features practical advice from CIOs, consultants, and more. You can find it here: The IT Leader’s Guide to Digital Transformation.
For even more education and inspiration, we curated this multimedia list of resources for you and your whole team.

It is a provocative, but pragmatic look at the intersection of business and technology. The CIOs are sharing their perspective on what works and doesn’t work as we transition from the traditional CIO to the transformational CIO.” - Tim Crawford, CIO Strategic Advisor, AVOA
“We transform to help our companies stay relevant, enchant customers, and motivate and inspire employees. There is always a human purpose tied to every technology investment.” -Daniel Newman
“The greatest difference when it comes to digital transformation: It reorients the entire organization around the customer experience and what is necessary to create, curate, and deliver it.” -Charles Araujo, Principal Analyst, Intellyx
Start Your Transformation
Digital transformation is more than a buzzword. And it’s definitely more than a single, one-and-done initiative. Rather, it’s a continued climb towards a new way of doing business. The sooner you start your expedition, the better. Along the way, you will find new efficiencies, new ways to save costs and boost revenue, and ultimately new business models that put you light years ahead of those who didn’t make the trip.
