“Go Live” is Just the Beginning
Digital Transformation Requires a New Approach to Technology Implementation
In this paper, Jill Finger Gibson explains why it’s essential to rethink traditional approaches when it comes to customer experience (CX) technology implementations. Organizations must learn to look beyond “go live” to achieve sustainable digital transformation.

New CX technologies – such as content management systems, marketing automation, customer relationship management solutions, and e-commerce platforms – are often critical underpinnings of an organization’s digital transformation. But they do not, themselves, constitute digital transformation. Digital transformation is not a project, a program, a platform, or even an initiative. It’s a long-term process that is driven by thoughtful, strategic introduction of digital technologies and practices to achieve business goals and objectives.

Effective, sustainable transformation requires the care and feeding of CX solutions over time.
