Digital Transformation is a massive term, covering the profound transformation of all aspects of businesses, to take advantage of and keep up with rapid developments in technology.
Put simply, digital transformation is the umbrella term used to describe the change businesses, governments and most all organizations are undergoing as they adapt to the rapidly growing use of technology, applications, and the internet.
