What is this blog about?
This blog is a place for me to record my thoughts and learning journey on Digital Transformation (DX). To me, DX is simply a term to describe how digital technologies can improve business processes and create meaningful work for Infocomm Technology (ICT) professionals.
Here, Digital Transformation (DX) concepts will be demystified!
Specifically, this blog will explore the following hot topics within DX:
· Cyber Security
· Digital Marketing
· Data Analytics
· Web Development
· Educational Technologies
· Career Development for ICT professionals
Who will benefit from this blog?
Digital Transformation (DX) can mean different things for different people, and even the intended audience will be different.
Since this blog is more about sharing my own experiences, those who might benefit from it are probably those who are just starting their journey into ICT and Digital Transformation, regardless of your industry. I believe that as long as you have the digital fundamentals right, you will be able to adapt and apply to any industry.
Who am I, and why I do this?
Assalamu’alaikum (Peace be Upon You)!
My name is Ideal Ismail, and I’m an ICT professional working in Singapore. I’ve been working in the ICT industry for more than 15 years, and I’ve always enjoyed exploring the business side of technology.
This blog is actually a reboot. A few years ago I started this blog with the tagline “Real-life lessons on Business Technology”, but I didn’t really get to post regularly so I deleted it.
Hopefully this time around things will change. :)
The ideas back then revolved around how to use Technology for Business advantage. A few years on, the strategy is still the same, only the tactics have changed.
I felt the need to restart this blog when I kept seeing the same Business/IT problems being replayed again and again; only the magnitude is bigger now, since more systems are connected to the internet and with one another.
In this blog reboot, I will also be doing Business/IT book reviews and How-to articles. I believe sharing and teaching what I’ve learnt will reinforce my own learning.
Demystifying Digital Transformation can be a huge undertaking, and I won’t pretend to know all the answers, but I believe blogging about this will help reach out to like-minded people and spark conversations, and hopefully everyone can benefit.
So, welcome to my blog and let me know your thoughts in the comments.
