Digital transformation can take many shapes, but we think Salesforce defines it best:
“...The process of using digital technologies to create new — or modify existing — business processes, culture, and customer experiences to meet changing business and market requirements.”
“This reimagining of business in the digital age is digital transformation.”
What is Digital Transformation (DX)
Digital transformation is where Jeff Bezos’s dream started. He imagined a world where the mainstream concept of going to a store to buy a product transformed into having that product show up at your doorstep within 48-hours of purchase.
The process of digital transformation is what birthed Google, Apple, Facebook, and virtually every other unicorn on the market today.
But just as the products and businesses that undergo digital transformation take a myriad of forms, so too does the process itself.

This type of transformation turns an idea into a complete digital experience. By defining the value proposition, validating it in the marketplace, and building an MVP (minimum viable product), a concept transforms into a digital product.
#1: The Business With an Idea
In this framework, an existing product goes through digital transformation to evolve Version 1.0 into Version 2.0. This usually happens when a digital product is already tested and validated in the marketplace and is acquiring customers, but there’s still room for growth and improvement.
#2: The Business Ready for an Upgrade
Align on high-level requirements for the project.
So how does a business accomplish digital transformation?
At Rootstrap, we break it into three phases:
Digital Transformation Roadmap
Turn high-level requirements into Release 1 plan for Sprint 1 development.
Release by release planning with sprint by sprint development using Scrum principles.

END OF FOUNDATIONS OUTPUT
· R1 Storymap
· R1 UX Flowchart
· Visual Explorations
· Sprint 1 Screens
While this transformation can benefit any company, enterprise organizations are often the ones who benefit most. For enterprise corporations, this often takes one of two forms:
1) A new product idea that needs to be prototyped and tested in the marketplace
2) A new product upgrade that needs to integrate into existing software
Both product solutions follow a similar digital transformation roadmap and use a framework like the one below.

Digital transformation is revolutionizing industry after industry, with a plethora of examples in eCommerce, finance, real estate, energy, and many more. But achieving a successful digital transformation isn’t easy.
A successful transformation relies on a strong framework and roadmap, an iteration-based development model, and a market-validated MVP, or minimum viable product. Without these tools, the process runs the risk of failing to improve the product or meaningfully advance high-level business objectives.
But even more importantly, the key to a successful transformation is an experienced, skilled digital partner that understands how to deploy the various elements of the transformation process in order to maximize business value. Centering the high-level business goals of the company is paramount to a successful project and long-term ROI, and only a seasoned expert in the transformation process can reliably produce those results.
