The digital revolution is at its peak, and great changes are happening at a rapid pace. Clients expect to have most of the information readily available and at their fingertips. This requires organizations to allot resources, knowledge and technological skills, which are not always available. Digital transformation can be defined as “a circular process of adopting new technologies and creating new business models in order to provide the digital costumer with a unique service and user experience in his dealings with the organization as a consumer. This goal is achieved by changing the organizational operation perspective, and integrating new digital technologies in products and services. 

This trend is coming of age in both the business and privet sectors. There is no industry that didn’t embrace the digital age, as smart cities arise in every nation. The goal is a digitalized nation, meaning: “the development of innovation and provision of cutting edge, high quality and efficient public services such as: education, health and welfare, information sharing and governmental accessibility, embedding technological tools and small and medium businesses, encouraging online trade and improving civil services by reducing bureaucracy”.

IT personnel, system managers, digital departments (advertisement, PR, banks, insurance companies), app developers, marketing personnel, UX/UI designers, business development managers looking to expand their professional toolbox, business consultants, directors in the public sector, municipal managers of different levels (smart city), system engineers, product managers and project managers.
