Digital Transformation - A new Era?
Abstract: Organizations are under constant pressure to leverage new and exciting digital technologies (IoT, AI, Digital Twins, Distributed Ledger, etc.) in their operation and their business transformation. These new technologies (not unlike previous generations) have created new challenges not experienced with traditional business systems. Using Internet of Things (IoT) technology in applications in healthcare, smart cities, and logistics creates new challenges: how does IT deal with solutions that operate across the physical/digital divide and are controlled by a different and well entrenched Operational Technology group that values safety far more than security, and how does the organization deal with the governance, privacy and records management issues related to the data in these new systems. The same can be said about AI, Digital Twins and Distributed Ledger. This session will survey these issues and cite a few digital transformation examples. The session will also explore the positive role Information Governance professionals can play in surmounting these challenges.
