Thinking Differently: Innovation, is it the next step in the digital transformation?
Two leaders of the most creative brands give their perspective on thinking differently.

Digital transformation is not a project, as it should be a way of running business. The innovation should be in the core and engine for the growth. We should challenge our surrounding to find improvements, using existing (or new) elements. Why not disrupt business model, find new usages or new customer segments for existing products or lean existing process

Analyst Corner VI: Automating effectively: Driving digital transformation in ways that will make a difference
Automation can be the key to operating more efficiently, but implementation can sap resources and delay changes critical to an organization's digital transformation, if not done effectively. It can be complicated for organizations to assess where and how to automate. Some workflows with high value can seem like the best targets, but may have resource and integration needs that would become road blocks to simpler tasks with more benefit. We'll discuss ways to classify and evaluate the state of automation within organizations. 451 Research has built a framework to aid in more objectively assessing automation investments and priorities. Automation can be a powerful force for digital transformation and is necessary for the scope and scale of operational change that modern businesses require to remain competitive. Careful application can make sure that power moves the organization in the right direction.
