130: From Disruption to Digital Transformation with NTT DATA

On this week’s Silicon Valley Insider (#SVIN), Keith Koo’s returning guests are Eric Clark, Chief Digital Officer and Kris Fitzgerald, Chief Technology Officer of NTT Data.

Eric and Kris discuss how companies have been adapting to work in the “new normal” by embracing new procedures and technologies to safely come back to work.

  • Digital Transformation is the adoption of digital technology to transform services or businesses, through replacing non-digital or manual processes with digital processes or replacing older digital technology with newer digital technology.
