Section 1: The "Why" of Digital Transformation
Section 2: The "How" of Digital Transformation


In this chapter, we learned about the different paradigms of AI. We looked at the various industry use cases of AI, from factories to public safety. Finally, we looked at what kind of changes AI is driving in organizations as they are adopting it for digital transformation. Some of these changes create a need for increased awareness of cybersecurity. However, the use of AI to improve the security posture is an emerging area, and in the near future, we will be able to leverage it to a greater extent.

In Chapter 9, Pitfalls to Avoid in The Digital Transformation Journey, we will look at some of the early indicators of failure in industrial digital transformation initiatives. We will look at some examples of such failures and try to categorize the main reasons for those failures. Overall, that should help plan transformative initiatives with early interventions and reduced risk of failures.
