Here is how Jason Bloomberg expresses the Intellyx perspective:

Mobile technologies. Cloud computing. Social media. Big data. Internet of things.

The list of technology buzzwords never seems to end.

And yet - digital transformation isn't about the technology. It's about the customer.

Today's customers - both consumers and business-to-business - demand multiple technology touchpoints with the companies they buy from and work for.

This digital technology story is not all about the user interface. You must connect the user experience to existing systems of record in a complex, distributed, cloud-based world.

Every element of this elaborate dance must perform at top speed, every time. Customers demand nothing less.

Enterprises must rise to this challenge. You must nail the technology to be sure. You must also revamp your organization to meet changing customer demands.

And you have to do it faster and better, while never taking your eye off the customer. In other words, you must be agile.
