Essential ingredients for digital transformation

I recently read a really nice post from Drew Firment (thanks go to Chris Swan for sharing it). Drew's article reminded me of some patterns I have seen in big transformations - most recently in my digital transformation work but also in the earlier rounds of change we called internet- or electronic-business transformation. This post is a first attempt at making these patterns explicit, initially so I can use them in my own work. It would be great to get your feedback if you think they will help you too. Lots of other people have already been trying to make sense of this area through frameworks, maturity models, life-cycles and other models. I have started to collect a list of some of these at the end of this post and they are worth reviewing as well.

Serverless computing will be big...

...but developer productivity and commercial flexibility are bigger

This post goes into technology a little more than usual so the TL;DR version for busy CIO's is:

  • Please make sure some of your teams are experimenting with serverless technology from Amazon or other providers. 

The rest of this post explains why Amazon is leading the transformation of software development with an obscure bit of technology from Google.
