The trend of Digital Transformation
The rapid advance of ’Digital Technology’ such as IoT, AI and Robotics is pushing companies’ digital transformation like never before. Of course, we don’t doubt that using digital technology itself is important part of digital transformation. However, through working as a digital consultant, I found that the most important thing for making digital transformation succeed is not just figuring out a good way to use technologies, but how to recruit and raise organizations/people that would penetrate destructive changes caused by digital technology and lead discontinuous value creation. Many companies realize about this fact today - this determine your companies’ digital transformation would be succeeded or not- and most of them are asking the same question themselves, “who’s going to play such a difficult role?” Because of this, ’Chief Digital Officer’ has been recognized in other countries as important role to push companies’ digital transformation, and major companies are setting the position now. This time, I will comment on the necessity of changes in companies’ activities by digital technology and required role for CDO, and also I will explain points and perspectives that companies would need to note for pushing digital transformation as well.
