Description : This is not a theory book that discusses academic concepts of the digital capability, but rather a practical field book that describes the proven digital capabilities as the building blocks of digital transformation and the approach to assessment and improvement of the digital capabilities to achieve successful digital transformation. This book therefore caters best for digital 'practitioners' including IT professionals, marketers and sales reps as well as digital consultants and digital planners. The Digital Capability Model in this book consists of 12 mega capabilities and 77 capabilities, where a mega capability is comprised of a set of capabilities. This book is organized to describe the CAPABILITIES and their MATURITY LEVELS individually according to the taxonomy of the Model. A digital capability is defined in this book as an organizational capacity to produce intended business outcome by combining process, people and technology elements in a way that is unique to each organization. Process element includes process flow, input & output information, and business rules & policies. People element includes organizational structure, and roles, responsibilities & skills. Technology element includes applications, data, and infrastructure around digital technology. The Social Listening capability is for example defined as an organizational capacity to understand what users are talking about on social media and use that for business by combining its well-defined processes, people, and technologies. The Model is comprehensive in scope, making it best suited for those who desire to have a broad understanding of the entire scope of digital capabilities and wish to obtain the cross-boundary, multi-disciplinary knowledge across business and technology. "Many organizations find it difficult to establish a robust yet agile framework for their digital operations. This book is all about a ready-made, yet highly-customizable solution to this challenge. The author suggests thinking of digital capabilities as the building blocks for digital transformation and describes each capability in great detail. Organizations can simply pick and choose those digital capabilities they consider relevant to them, to build their own digital framework. Reading this book and following the steps will put you firmly on the road to achieving dominance in the digital space and providing your customers with consistent, memorable user experiences that will keep them coming back for more." - David Lee, Director Process Innovation, Samsung America. "I was lucky enough to be there when Jace first started to codify his wholistic understanding of digital operations into the Digital Capability Model. As I read through this book four years later, I again see the clarity of his communication, the value of his expansive perspective and the sheer usefulness of this tool. The Model is thorough and intricate, well thought out and well explained. The value of this whole of capability model is tremendous and should become the standard against which digital business is measured." - Nick Crowther, Managing Director, Freerange Future (Webby Awards and SxSW Interactive Awards winner). "A must read for anyone already involved in digital transformation, or wanting to learn how best they can implement and improve their digital operations. Rather than delivering generic and superficial statements about digital transformation, this book covers the essentials of proven digital capabilities and shows you how to use these to implement digital transformation practically. The unified model of Digital Capabilities provides a crash course that introduces readers to all the various aspects of digital transformation. If you're looking for a proven, practical digital framework, this book will exceed your expectations significantly." Jay Jung, Customer & Digital Adviser, Ernst & Young.
Description : Practical advice for redesigning “big, old” companies for digital success, with examples from Amazon, BNY Mellon, LEGO, Philips, USAA, and many other global organizations. Most established companies have deployed such digital technologies as the cloud, mobile apps, the internet of things, and artificial intelligence. But few established companies are designed for digital. This book offers an essential guide for retooling organizations for digital success. In the digital economy, rapid pace of change in technology capabilities and customer desires means that business strategy must be fluid. As a result, the authors explain, business design has become a critical management responsibility. Effective business design enables a company to quickly pivot in response to new competitive threats and opportunities. Most leaders today, however, rely on organizational structure to implement strategy, unaware that structure inhibits, rather than enables, agility. In companies that are designed for digital, people, processes, data, and technology are synchronized to identify and deliver innovative customer solutions—and redefine strategy. Digital design, not strategy, is what separates winners from losers in the digital economy. Designed for Digital offers practical advice on digital transformation, with examples that include Amazon, BNY Mellon, DBS Bank, LEGO, Philips, Schneider Electric, USAA, and many other global organizations. Drawing on five years of research and in-depth case studies, the book is an essential guide for companies that want to disrupt rather than be disrupted in the new digital landscape.

Description : The integration of technological innovations, such as In-Memory Analytics, Cloud Computing, Mobile Connectivity, and Social Media, with business practice can enable significant competitive advantage. In order to embrace recent challenges and changes in the governance of IT strategies, SAP and its think tank - the Business Transformation Academy (BTA) - have jointly developed the Digital Capability Framework (DCF). Digital Enterprise Transformation: A Business-Driven Approach to Leveraging Innovative IT by Axel Uhl and Lars Alexander Gollenia outlines the DCF which comprises six specific capabilities: Innovation Management, Transformation Management, IT Excellence, Customer Centricity, Effective Knowledge Worker, and Operational Excellence. In cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland, University of St. Gallen (Switzerland), Queensland University of Technology (Australia), University of Liechtenstein (Principality of Liechtenstein), and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany), SAP and the BTA have been validating each capability and the corresponding maturity models based on analyzing several ’lighthouse’ case studies comprising: SAMSUNG, IBM, Finanz Informatik, The Walt Disney Company, Google Inc., HILTI AG. Digital Enterprise Transformation presents how these companies take advantage of innovative IT and how they develop their digital capabilities. On top the authors also develop and present a range of novel yet hands-on Digital Use Cases for a number of different industries which have emerged from innovative technological trends such as: Big Data, Cloud Computing, 3D Printing and Internet of Things.
