In this module, you will learn how enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, cloud-based infrastructure, and advanced analytics underpin digital transformation. Digital transformation requires not just a transformation of a business’s processes and models but also organizational and cultural transformation. Cloud-based infrastructure is an essential component of successful digital transformation. The cloud offers different service and deployment models that allow businesses to plan their move to the cloud keeping their specific needs in mind. The growth in data generation means explosive growth in the potential for examining that data for new insights. You will learn how data analytics and data science help businesses generate insights from massive volumes of data and the measures they consider to ensure the security and privacy of data. You will learn about the customer journey and how customer experience systems shape and provide business, technical, and data analysis context.

In this module, you will learn what impact digital transformation has on a company, its business processes, and its tools. To digitally transform, all aspects of a company need to be integrated, including people, processes, tools, and technology. To improve readiness for transformation, businesses must set goals, prepare the organization, identify KPIs for tracking progress, and prepare people and skills. Companies can take early steps for digital transformation by determining the starting point, defining priorities, building a road map, and preparing their teams. You will be able to appreciate how business requirements are linked to business goals. A company’s maturity impacts its readiness for change and the form of change it could benefit from most. In this module, you will learn about the five stages of business maturity, from the initial entrepreneur stage to the stage where an organization is stable, organized, and operationally structured.
