Strategic and Transformational IT

Henry Lucas, Ritu Agarwal, Anandasivam Gopal, USMx

Learn about the explosion of technologies that are transforming business and how to strategically leverage technologies to maximize the value--and minimize the risk--to your firm.

New technologies and “big data” have transformed every facet of business, from accounting to marketing. Technologies like social media, ecommerce platforms, mobile devices, software services, the cloud, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things have created new business processes and products, while displacing and disrupting many others.

This course will help you assess the most critical technologies that affect your business sector and how you can manage them to realize efficiencies.
