This article examines a phenomenon that has been labeled Digital Transformation (Dx). "Rather than dismiss Dx," writes John O'Brien, "we can intentionally embrace digital transformation as a powerful, deliberate choice and can work to energize our institutions around the ideas it encompasses." But what does that mean? "The technologies that enable Dx (e.g., analytics, artificial intelligence, the cloud, mobile, consumerization, social networks, and storage capacities) constitute only one of the levers involved," writes O'Brien. "True Dx goes far beyond tools to include cultural and workforce changes in how we teach, learn, enroll, and engage in scholarship and research." You'll probably want to follow the links in the references following this short article to get a more in-depth account.
