Engineering the Digital Transformation Excerpt :

I see it all the time: Businesses implement the latest Agile and DevOps practices from thesoftware industry, hoping that simply doing so will provide the required improvements.But months and evenyears later, they're still struggling. Similarly, I watch the softwareindustry trying to learn and implement wholesale what the manufacturing industry didyears ago.As it turns out, we can't just copy what others have done. Businesses need to understandthe unique challenges of their company. And digital assets like software are very differentfrom physical assets that are manufactured. Every business is different, and softwaredevelopment is different from manufacturing.Engineering the Digital Transformation provides systematic approaches to improvinghow software is developed for a broad range of applications. This book focuses on high-level principles for engineering improvements, leveraging as much as possible frommanufacturing, and modifies them toaddress the unique characteristics and capabilitiesof software.

Strategic Digital Transformation Excerpt :

Emerging technologies are having a profound impact upon business as individuals and organisations increasingly embrace the benefits of the ‘always on’ attitude that digital technologies produce. The use of the web, apps, cloud storage, GPS and Internet-connected devices has transformed the way we live, learn, play and interact – yet how a business can fully benefit from this transformation is not always clear. In response, this book enables students and business leaders to take a strategic and sustainable approach to realising the value of digital technologies. It offers results-driven solutions that successfully transform organisations into data-driven, people-focused businesses capable of sustainably competing at a global level. Split across four key parts, the material moves through understanding digital business to planning, implementing and assessing digital transformation. The current challenges facing all small organisations, including limited resources, financial pressures and the lack of dedicated IT departments, are explored. The authors consider the ways in which innovation can increase competitive advantage, how innovative business models can create new opportunities and how a data-driven perspective can release embedded value within the organisation. Contemporary international case studies and examples throughout each chapter bridge theory with practical application and systematically document the patterns of activities that enable success. This textbook is a vital resource for postgraduate and undergraduate students of digital business, innovation and transformation. By showing how to initiate digital transformation across an organisation, it will prepare business owners, directors and management of small- and medium-sized businesses to take strategic advantage of new and emerging technologies to stay ahead of their competition.
