The term ‘digital transformation’ is widely used by business and technology leaders, but it is worth pausing to reflect on what it really means, how it emerged and why it is important. This paper will use the fictionalized example of a mobile banking app to demonstrate the concepts of digital transformation.
Digital transformation has catalyze the growth of other technology-related ideas such as Agile IT, rapid application development, Internet of Things (IoT) and software defined infrastructure.
The results can be summarized as:
The time and cost needed to prototype, build and run technology-powered services has significantly reduced, lowering the entry barriers for new competitive threats and opportunities.
The cost for customers to change service providers has significantly reduced, which also reflects in lower barriers for change, therefore making markets more ‘liquid’ and enabling significant shifts in market share.
The ability of organizations to reach, understand, influence and adapt to changes in customer behavior has significantly increased, therefore improving the ability to create ‘mass personalization’ experiences through technology-powered services.
The popularity of social media and the reduced cost of switching has made enterprises susceptible to real-time customer sentiment.
Businesses spend 80% of their IT budget just “keeping the lights on” and less than 20% on innovating new services. With an IT portfolio amassed over decades with a variety of applications, Os’s and tech stacks – this ratio is only compounded by the influx of new application development and cloud strategies.
It is not feasible to scrap legacy systems to adopt new technologies. IT leaders need a way to invest in new areas of innovation while reducing the maintenance burden of existing applications. Docker provides a solution to both modernize existing applications and accelerate the delivery of new applications.

Across industries, organizations are responding to evolving customer behaviors, market opportunities, competitive pressure, and regulatory and compliance standards by undergoing digital transformations. Software is at the core of this shift, which requires drastic changes to business and operational models. Success depends on using software to maintain a continuous competitive advantage over a growing number of rivals.
As a result, IT organizations must adopt a more strategic role in delivering greater business value and ensuring competitive differentiation. They must change how they deliver, manage, and integrate applications and data. To do so, IT teams need to modernize the infrastructure they rely on and deliver everything — from infrastructure resources to applications — on demand and as a service.
However, traditional processes, infrastructure, and applications can restrict these efforts. For example, 46% of business leaders say that their organization operates too slowly and has too much bureaucracy. Accordingly, organizations are looking for ways to become more agile and responsive. 53% of business leaders are investing in modern technology to develop digital products and services faster, while 42% are focusing on digital-first to improve customer- facing processes.
