RattleBerry RoundUp: Digital Transformation

February 3, 2016

Thanks for joining us for our first RattleBerry RoundUp post. This will become a weekly series for us in which we will "round-up" interesting articles based around a certain topic. We hope this becomes an installment you look forward to and gain useful insight from, and we look forward to reading your feedback and comments. This week's topic is digital transformation. We felt this was the perfect place to start as it is the reason for RattleBerry. Digital transformation refers to the way business today must adapt to the continual shift of their customer/client base from primarily in-store and over-the-phone to the internet. This shift has allowed for small "disruptive" businesses to enter nearly every industry and gain a large market share with minimal overhead. Large corporations and companies with more traditional business models have felt the shift and seen the damage to their bottom lines and are now struggling to catch up before another startup enters the market and finishes them off.
