The book "The Drivers of Digital Transformation" presents diverse perspectives to take a 360° view on digitization.
Author: Gerhard Halfwassen
Why will the cloud be sitting in the driver’s seat in the future? What motivated Klaus Hardy, ThyssenKrupp CIO, to transfer 80,000 jobs to the cloud, and how justified is Heineken's long- time CIO Anne Teague in thinking that innovation is driven by IT? What can German IT leaders learn from Silicon Valley or China?
„The cloud is the basis for digitized business models and processes that will shape the future.“
Dr. Ferri Abolhassan, Director of the IT Division at T-Systems and responsible for Telekom Security
To what extent does Telekom CEO Tim Höttges think Europe’s future is dependent on the success of digitization, and why is T-Systems Director Dr. Ferri Abolhassan of the opinion that the secure cloud is the essential backbone of digitization? Diverse perspectives on digitization are presented in this book for the first time to take a 360° view of the subject.
Christophe Châlons, chief analyst of the PAC Group; Dieter Schweer, member of the executive board of BDI; Prof. August-Wilhelm Scheer of the eponymous AWS Institute for Digital Products and Processes; Clas Neumann, Asia expert at SAP; and Michael Weppler, member of the TÜV board, are among the authoritative contributors who share their perspectives regarding the digital transformation of our economy from the viewpoint of their sectors and industries. The authors are unanimous: the most important component of this transformation is the cloud! Moreover, digitization and cloud-based processes are the central forces driving business forward in the 21st century, provided that the two main factors add up: safety and quality.
Finally, the digital world relies heavily on cloud-based technologies. And with the increasing importance of IT for the economy, the demand for stability and security is rising even further. What matters when it comes to the cloud is having the right technology platforms in place, as well as having both the expertise in working with these platforms and the appropriate personnel who can drive companies towards digital transformation in a safe and successful way.
The book “The Drivers of Digital Transformation – Why There’s No Way Around the Cloud” features exciting contributions, analyses and practical examples which guide its readers through digitization. The contributions show how working with technology is linked to success, how much potential the cloud offers, how much it depends on striking the right partnerships and what the most important success factors are in terms of quality and safety.
