The Role and Challenges of Business Process Automation and Digitization
This article from i-Scoop addresses the issues surrounding the digitization of businesses in today's fast-paced world.
"In 2014 I was at the CeBIT tradeshow in Germany and stopped by the Social Business Arena where SAP’s Sameer Patel was about to give a presentation.
When introducing Sameer and the topic he would cover, digital transformation, the host asked if digital transformation was something ‘new’ in social business. Maybe it was because he just didn’t know as, after all, back then the discussions about digital transformation were only a few years young (Capgemini’s work with the MIT Center for Digital Business was published late 2011 and led to the attention for digital transformation as we know it today – the term isn’t new). Maybe Sameer‘s topic needed some additional explanation for people who sat in and listened as after all, Sameer was talking in the Social Business Arena and, here, in Europe, social business was still the term of the day."
