When you are certified by EXIN as a Digital Transformation Officer you are extensively tested on the main topics related to the role such as Enterprise Service Management (based on VeriSM), Artificial Intelligence, IoT, and more.
Why become a Digital Transformation Officer?
Digital Transformation Officers are often in charge of projects and initiatives that aim to maximize the opportunities available by embracing new digital channels, technologies, or products. The role of a DTO is varied and challenging which keeps it interesting. Digital Transformation Officers, sometimes also known as Chief Digital Officers, usually have a very important role in determining the digital strategy within their organization. There are a number of different roles appearing that focus on leading transformation including the chief digital officer, chief transformation officer, and chief change officer. Each of these roles is a response to the need for someone to respond quickly to changing customer and market demands.
While ‘going digital’ is a major undertaking, assuring the delivery of business services that are always available and always working is what bonds the customer to the organization over time. (Netscout)
Where traditionally departments worked in silos and each generated value for the business in their own way, the Digital Transformation Officer needs to rise above these silos to unit these departments in working towards a common goal. The goal of focusing on what the customer needs and fulfilling that need as soon as possible.
