Process Transformation and Implementation
An organization should understand that the IT department is the primary key for successful integration and implementation. Some of the executives who form the basis for practical implementation are the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Chief Digital Officer (CDO). However, these executives only focus on implementing digital transformation strategies across the organization. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) must implement it throughout the systems of the company.
Corporate’s focus on achieving a vast amount of work within a given period. These corporates use technological processes such as analytics, AI, and big data to help them achieve tasks at a rapid pace. Banks utilize enabling technologies such as machine learning to improve processes such as sanctioning of loans. Fast food companies also typically use these processes to change protocols in which companies work. The multinational fast-food pizza company Dominoes Pizza implemented digital transformation processes to improve food ordering systems.

Risk process automation is another way in which organizations can implement digital transformation. Through this system, back-office processes can be improved.

In India, the food delivery company Swiggy has integrated with different food outlets to deliver food in metropolitan hubs. Consumers do not have the approach an outlet to make an order. Instead, they can make an order just by using the mobile application. In this model, only the strategy is improved for the business. The traditional model of carrying out the business for the organization is still preserved.
Transformation of the Whole Domain System
This model is predominantly focused on using existing technologies and processes to achieve a competitive advantage. Organizations use this form of the model to enter into new areas.
