Organizations are pressured to become digital enterprises for good reason. Today every company is a technology company at its core. Only through integrated information technology systems designed for business analytics can companies sense and respond to changing market demands. Business agility demands a digital enterprise. Digital technologies have the potential to transform organizations into lean, agile businesses that are strongly focused on their customers. But, just introducing digital technologies into an enterprise is not enough. Without the right organizational culture, business processes, and active people training, you will not realize the full value of digital technologies. In this program, we help you see the dynamic capabilities of your organization. Using the fitness landscape model we help managers see where they are in relation to other organizations and how to reconfigure their dynamic capabilities to move higher up the competitive fitness landscape. These “dynamic capabilities” include both the social and the digital – how we work and the technologies that support it.. Terabytes of processing and machine learning won’t be the solution to your business problems on their own. As companies pursue big data and cloud computing strategies to improve their decision making with actionable insights – the technologies will change. To truly sustainably improve the customer experience and achieve the competitive advantage that the power of data promises, you need the social technologies and processes that are able to adapt along with your data strategy. This ability to reconfigure and deploy new capabilities within the organization by creating, extending, or modifying the existing resources is a “dynamic capability.” With the speed of technology disruption, business leaders must enable their company to adapt. This certificate will also teach you about how to discover data sources in your company, and leverage those structured and unstructured data to improve your whole business. From supply chain sourcing to marketing and delivery. These lessons will help you make the right choices about digital transformation to make your organization better fulfill its mission and delight customers. To get there you must first understand the vision of a digital enterprise, what it looks like, how it operates, and why it’s so powerful in delivering results.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
