The new WhitePaper focussing on Digital Transformation is now available for download!

The FDC Initiative on Digital Reality felt there is a need to look at the Digital Transformation from the point of view of a profound change that is pervading the entire society—a change made possible by technology and that keeps changing due to technology evolution opening new possibilities but is also a change happening because it has strong economic reasons. The direction of this change is not easy to predict because it is steered by a cultural evolution of society, an evolution that is happening in niches and that may expand rapidly to larger constituencies and as rapidly may fade away. This creation, selection by experimentation, adoption, and sudden disappearance, is what makes the whole scenario so unpredictable and continuously changing.

The new White Paper is now available for download from the Digital Reality website. It provides “digested” information on:

  • Lights and Shadows of the Digital Transformation
  • Technological Enablers
  • Business Enablers
  • Societal Enablers
  • The economics of the Digital Transformation
  • The geography of the Digital Transformation
  • The societal aspects of the Digital Transformation
  • The Players
  • Fostering a sustainable Digital Transformation
  • Roadmaps
  • Standards overview

The White Paper is the result of over 20 people contribution from different industries and from 14 Countries, thus providing a variety of points of views. This makes the White Paper particularly stimulating and interesting.

Additionally, IEEE will be offering within the end of the year a professional course to understand, and most importantly execute, the Digital Transformation.

If you are interested in some presentation material supporting this White Paper just let me know. Likewise, if you are interested in having someone from the DRI team to present the White Paper at your company let me know. I am pretty sure it can be organised.
