Overview

Digital technologies are no longer the exclusive domain of the IT department, and IT can no longer be viewed simply as a support function within organizations. This course will help business and IT professionals from any organization to understand the process of digital transformation, and reorient their thinking to a digital business approach.

Digital systems, technologies, and data are increasingly critical for both strategy and operations across all organizations - in both business and government. This shift has implications for how the IT function is managed within organizations, and how professionals think about digital systems within their organizations.

This course explores the movement from an IT paradigm to a digital business technology (BT) paradigm. It also provides a deep view of the environment of simultaneous chaos and order in organizations that are rapidly digitizing. Finally, learners will learn about the impact that digital transformation has on the role of IT and CIO teams. This information is critically needed by both IT and business professionals who are reorienting themselves towards a digital business approach.
