We thought we were operating in a highly digital world and then the COVID-19 pandemic hit. More things are done digitally now than ever before. But are they being done well? This interesting topic came to our attention from IT Pro Portal in their article, “Poor data quality is the leading cause of digital transformation failure. It’s time to prioritise data transformation!

In this digitally empowered time, businesses have grand ambitions of leveraging the power of artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and machine learning. With innovation happening at a rapid pace, companies investing millions of dollars to run their digital transformation plans and new systems are being created in real-time, are organizations setting themselves up for success or project failure?

Data transformation is the process of transforming raw data into a usable format and it is often, incorrectly, confused with digital transformation. Companies assume that because they are implementing data lakes and data centers, they are transforming their data.
