Digital Transformation? But are you doing what is right for your customers?
Customers want their service with minimal interruption to their daily lives. Despite your strategy, they know your company at the operational level.
And your company is just the worst.
Doing the basics right for digital initiatives becomes more difficult as complexity increases, especially where web technology is involved. Fixes and improvements are par for the course. Yet many companies are still surprised by this reality. The value of plentiful monitoring, continuous improvements, automation and operational effectiveness cannot be overstated, especially in the new world of digital. Your customers care and so should you.
They are watching. They expect excellence. And you may be damaging their joy.

"The author shows you how the tools and technologies your business uses today can be a double-edged sword, if you aren't careful. The digital technologies your business depend upon have an Achilles heel. The author shines a light into these dark places, so you don't have to. Like Internet sensation Grumpy Cat, he takes a curmudgeon's tour through the web technologies of today, sparing nobody's ego in the process."

Web presences are more important and more complicated than ever with security, usability, and financial performance concerns. The stakes are higher than ever. His advice is not a bunch of web fluff, but it's solid advice applicable to business leaders and young professional developers alike."
