The Role Of Modeling in Digital Transformation

Will modeling play a role in digital transformation? My answer would be "yes". Organizations will likely use a business or a technology model to guide the digital journey. Just like maps help on a hike or long journey. For a planning organization these models will play a role in both understanding the current state and the several phased target states for the digital transformation. For a reactionary organization, mining of real activities will likely yield a model to study for change and improvement. Most organizations will likely employ both models before execution and after execution. These are the kind of models I have seen and continue to expect to see in the future:
