I recently had the opportunity to talk with Tim Crawford, CIO Strategic Advisor AVOA. Tim is one of my panelists for the session, Buy Less Nutanix. Run More Apps at Nutanix.NEXT in Washington D.C. later this month.

SK:  How involved should IT be involved in the charge to digital transformation?

Digital transformation is a bit of a misnomer. What organizations should really care about is business transformation, or more specifically, business transformation enabled by technology.

If the CIO has a conversation with the CEO about digital transformation, the CEO is likely to ask, “What does it do for the customer?
