Program Preview Wrap-Up: PGP in Digital Transformation

Simplilearn presented a program preview of its Post Graduate Program in Digital Transformation.  In partnership with Purdue University, this comprehensive certification program provides learners with a complete set of skills to manage digital transformation in their organizations.

Digital Transformation is Changing Everything

Digital transformation was an important emerging trend in 2019.  Then 2020 came, the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and the need to move to remote work and non-contact business models turned the trend into a necessity.  As we move into the future, digital transformation isn’t slowing down: organizations have found that the new digital business models have many benefits beyond enabling remote operations.

Through digital transformation:

  • Business leaders use data and technology innovatively to build value from new opportunities
  • Program and Product Managers create business models that address new or underserved markets
  • Solution Architects and Technical Leads leverage technology to reorient business processes for more impact and reach new customers

At this point, 91% of organizations are engaged in some form of digital transformation initiative.  Moreover, 87% of senior business leaders say digitalization is a company priority.

This intense focus is why the average US salary for Digital Transformation Consultants is $125,000, with some positions offering $175,000 or more.  Roles such as Digital Consultant, Digital Analyst, and Digital Transformation Consultant require a combination of complementary skills, including:

  • Digital Disruption
  • Digital Strategy
  • Digital Business Model
  • Agile Business Transformation
  • Design Thinking
  • People Leadership
  • Digital Marketing
  • Artificial Intelligence
