Welcome to Heavy Networking from the Packet Pushers Podcast network. Today’s show is all about Digital Transformation.
CIOs, executives, analysts, and product managers talk about digital transformation the way exercise junkies talk about CrossFit: as the way and the truth and the blueprint for…what, exactly?
Businesses already use technology. Things are pretty well digitized. Employees have laptops and mobile devices, and IT teams build and run elaborate systems to move and process data.
Does digital transformation just mean adopting the latest gadget and moving data faster, or is there something more?
That’s the question we’ll explore on today’s episode. We’ve brought on several guests to help puncture the hot air balloon of digital technology and see if there’s anything useful inside: Paul Beyer, Infrastructure Architect; Tobias Metz, Consultant Network Engineering & Training Coordinator; and Emma Cardinal-Richards, Senior Network Architect.
In our conversation we:
- Try to assemble a working definition of digital transformation
- Explore how the idea of digital transformation differs from previous eras of technology adoption
- See if we can tie the notion of transformation to particular technologies
- Discuss the impacts of digital transformation on engineers
