This textbook offers a unique combination of theory, practical applications and case studies on digital transformation strategies.

Digital transformation is the process of changing conventional business models enabled by digital technologies. This involves strategically deploying digital technologies to create differential value of an organization. Digital transformation encompasses strategy changes, business model innovation, product and process innovation, and organizational innovation, all wrapped in a layer of newer technologies.

This textbook helps define transformation and digitalization and contrasts them with digitization and automation.
