About this course

Skip About this course

New technologies and “big data” have transformed every facet of business, from accounting to marketing. Technologies like social media, ecommerce platforms, mobile devices, software services, the cloud, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things have created new business processes and products, while displacing and disrupting many others. In order to stay competitive, business leaders need to understand these emerging technologies, assess their inherent opportunities and challenges, and strategically maneuver the organization to maximize the value--and minimize the risk--of digital transformation.

This course will help you assess the most critical digital technologies that affect your business sector and how you can leverage them to realize efficiencies. We’ll discuss when and how to appropriately commoditize the data these technologies produce and ultimately, how the strategic deployment of technology can transform an organization.
