Will Modeling Play a Role in Digital Transformation?
by Jim Sinur
My answer would be yes.
Organizations will likely use a business or a technology model to guide the digital journey, in the same way maps help to guide on a hike or long journey.
For a planning organization, these models will play a role in both understanding the current state and the several phased target states for the Digital Transformation. For a reactionary organization, mining of real activities will likely yield a model to study for change and improvement. Most organizations will likely employ both models before execution and after execution.
These are the kind of models I have seen and continue to expect to see in the future:
