Whether you are changing your business to disrupt or avoid being disrupted, slamming a bunch of SMACT (Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud and Internet of Things) on top of your enterprise will not make you a digital enterprise, despite what some industry consultants and experts say. You need to become “digital by design,” committed to digitally uniting your customers, the employees that support them, and the back office systems to create journeys that are low in customer effort and profitable.
I will be discussing how your bank can get there at the American Banker: Digital Banking 2016, conference, June 20-22 in New Orleans, with Jason Kammer, Vice President of Strategic Digital Initiatives at Fifth Third Bank, who will show the practical, in-the-trenches view of a digital transformation.

In turn, this translates into more effectively targeted offers and interactions. All of this nanosecond customer engagement and feedback, combined with constantly changing data and faster competitive responses by “born digital” businesses, means today’s companies must embrace dramatically accelerated rates of change. These forces make becoming a digital enterprise imperative.
Here are 10 business reasons for becoming “digital by design,” including role, process, and technology best practices to help you understand how your organization can make the transformation:
