What is digital transformation?

Marketing digitalization or digital transformation is a broad term that describes the strategic effort by companies and individuals to implement technology that automates manual, repetitive, and time-consuming tasks. With a proactive digital transformation strategy, companies strategize their long-term approach to digital content and the processes involved in content ideation, creation, collaboration, and distribution.

By leveraging digital transformation technology like digital asset management, companies integrate new digital tools into their existing martech stack. These new digital technologies are designed to streamline processes and communication. They integrate seamlessly with virtually all existing digital tools and allow companies to positively transform internal and external workflows, save time on time-consuming tasks, and reduce human error by automating processes.

What is the purpose of digital transformation?

The aim of digital transformation is to integrate digital technology into all aspects of a business in order to change the ways in which the business itself operates. From reinventing company culture to delivering new value and customer experience to customers, digital transformation is the all-encompassing positive force that drives modern companies to achieve more through technology and reach new market requirements.

Beyond that, digital transformation is a cultural change that requires organizations to challenge the ways in which they have always operated and experiment often. It leads companies to walk away from the long-standing business processes that they were built upon and pioneer relatively new and ever-evolving practices and digital technologies.

There are multiple ways in which companies benefit from implementing a digital transformation strategy. Every company embarks on a unique journey to address issues, challenges, and needs specific to their industry and their business model. Most companies, however, share similar benefits at the end of their journey: improved customer experience and operational agility, workforce enablement, and unlimited scalability, to mention only a few.

How is an effective digital transformation strategy achieved?

Companies rely on a growing number of digital technologies to effectively market their products and services. Here are some of the digital tools that companies are increasingly leveraging as they embark on their digital transformation journey:

Digital asset management allows companies to leverage the technology necessary to achieve digital transformation. By providing companies with a powerful content library powered by configurable and customizable taxonomy and metadata, it automates and streamlines repetitive tasks like file-searching, -approving, and -sharing. A digital asset management solution can effectively automate critical tasks like setting permissions and expiration dates while collaborating with external stakeholders and integrates with other business-critical marketing technologies through APIs/SDKsA. Additionally, a DAM helps drive digital transformation by analyzing content performance, asset usage and engagement, and internal search metrics.
