Your digital transformation: Have you made the move yet?

Are you part of the solution or part of the problem? We talked with Analyst Jason Bloomberg today about digital transformation. If you are not part of the change, you may be creating a silo or two. Our discussion today was about Mobile Marketing and Social Media and changes in Enterprise organizations, so now everyone has a stake in the success of the communications. Marketing is not just for the Marketing department. It’s everyone’s role and responsibility. There is role-shifting going on now.

We also talk about how to become an expert in your field. Is it too late to become an expert on the blockchain? Perhaps, or maybe your niche just has not yet been named. What makes an expert?

Jason Bloomberg gives us two examples of firms that are changing from within. One is www.jll.com, a real estate firm that is becoming a software company. If you visit the website, you’ll see very little about transactions, but a lot about lifestyle.

A second example is Neiman Marcus, Inc. Jason gave us examples of how personal touch has been successfully transformed using artificial intelligence tools. Sales executives have much more data available to help them navigate the needs and wants of customers. Therefore, they are able to be more efficient, while being personal and needs-driven.
