I joined Forbes as a contributor in June 2014, covering the relatively new topic of digital transformation. Now four years and over 230 articles later, it’s time to take stock of the trend.

To get a read on the current mood around digital transformation, I Googled for news stories over the last week featuring the term. In a mere seven days, dozens of articles discussed the notion, appearing in both technical and business sites around the world.
The encouraging news: for the most part, opinions align with the four core characteristics I believe are essential for defining digital transformation. Here’s what I found.
Intellyx publishes the Agile Digital Transformation Roadmap poster, advises companies on their digital transformation initiatives, and helps vendors communicate their agility stories.
