Digital Transformation Course


Overview

Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business resulting in fundamental changes to how the organization operates and how they deliver value to customers.

Beyond that, it's a cultural change that requires organizations to continually challenge the status quo, experiment often, and get comfortable with failure. This sometimes means walking away from long-standing business processes that companies were built upon in favour of relatively new practices that are still being defined.

New technology trends are emerging and although some of these technologies are still in its infancy, now is the time to embrace these trends, exploring their potential, benefits and drawbacks.

To address the challenges of digital transformation and new technologies, EPI has developed a 1-day Digital Transformation course which will answer a lot of questions such as what these trends are about, how these can be applied and what are the possible implications for the organization.
