Digital Transformation Officer – Self-Study

About the course

Why should you take this training course?

Although digital transformation enables organisations to improve customer experience, improve business performance, and increase efficiency, it is not without challenges. Implementation requires, among other things, competent individuals, the necessary resources. These include complex software and technology, organisational structure changes, and the implementation of change management and digital transformation strategies. Organisations require a Certified Digital Transformation Officer to address and manage these issues effectively (CDTO).

This course provides insightful information that will assist participants in gaining a comprehensive understanding of digital transformation and the steps required to digitally transform a business model. It also has a thorough explanation and discussion of digital transformation methodologies and approaches. Participants will also learn about some of the most popular technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT, blockchain, cloud computing, and big data.
