I think of how I'm going to politely end the conversation with whatever vendor is talking to me.

Large invoices from large consulting firms

Thanks everyone for sharing your comments. I think this all depends on the client’s understanding of this term and what they are looking to achieve. We need to ask the same question to non technical professionals and see their answers.. I think we’ll get surprising answers from them 😁

All of the above!

Changing the mindset of the people towards adopting more checks and balances to adhere to processes and workflows supported by tools.

A little of any of the options, but for now mostly going paperless and automation manual processes.

Enabling or transforming the business by leveraging digital capabilities be it AI, IoT, Big Data, Analytics, or any other technology.

Aligning a technology delivery roadmap with incremental delivery of things that provide the most value to business and changing the governance culture to one of engagement in the journey and incremental pivot points to allow response to changes/opportunities in the industry.

None of the above. I'm thinking about doing things in a more automated way that's relevant to the year 2020.

Solving business problems using technology to achieve sustainable outcomes and create long term opportunities.

applying IT to reduce business costs

the digital transformation of data itself at scale, a data-centric computing model not infrastructure based.

Changing how organisation works - ways of working. It also fundamentally is the change in the value chain for the company and from many aspects the digital transformation is essentially how digital solutions are integrating seamlessly to our everyday life

Customer...

From a vendor, its a sales pitch, from management, usually its just a buzz-word they've heard from somewhere.

Pulse User

The world has changed, our customers wants and needs are changing, the tools we use to service our customer are changing.  Digital transformation is the reworking of our business to align to these changes.

It is all of those items and more.  It is not just about technology.  It is the transformation of the business to a more automated, faster pace, paperless, technology enabled business.  Tech is just one part of it.  And a tech transformation without the business on-board will have limited success.

To me, digital transformation is process of utilizing 'digital' technology to drive efficiency, automation and the acceleration of business. Example: From a collaboration and productivity standpoint, adopting a 'Dominating Ecosystem' like G Suite or Office 365 to reduce the daily friction of teammate collaboration (vs. disjointed best-of-breed tools).
