How To Successfully Create A Digital Transformation Roadmap



Digital transformation can be a tough pill to swallow for a lot of organizations due to the cost and/or lack of direction. Organizations often want to jump from having systems where no data is collected, straight to doing analytical modeling for prescriptive analytics! And because the gap between where an organization wants to be compared to where they are today is so large, it is often a daunting proposition. In this webinar, Radix will discuss their pragmatic methodology for developing transformation road maps for Industry 4.0 topics that can help communicate not only the plan for transformation, but also the end goal value proposition. This will include discussions on how to effectively set organizational goals, how to determine where an organization is today, and how to prioritize certain actives ahead of others.
