Long-term, successful digital transformation requires more than good tech

In their digital transformation efforts, many organizations focus mostly on the technology they’ll need to deploy. That narrow focus may not be beneficial in the long term. In this podcast, David Linthicum and Takeda’s Gabriele Ricci discuss how, instead of focusing solely on tech, companies should make security, compliance, customer experience, and adding value to the business top priorities, as well. Ricci also gives his advice to companies starting out on their digital transformation journey.

Digital transformation is really creating this mindset, this DNA. It's really putting the customer at the center.

Gabriele Ricci is the VP and Head of Plasma-Derived Therapies (PDT) IT at Takeda. He has nearly twenty years of experience in information technology and engineering with life-sciences companies.
