Digital transformation. Digital strategy. Digital leadership. Digital enterprise. Digital customer journey. It seems the list of things that have gone digital is unending and remarkably broad. Underlying all of these intertwined digital concepts? Unquestionably, some kind of technology. Digital technology. Just one problem: nobody agrees on just what constitutes digital technology.
