Digital Transformation at the VA, Blockchain for Procurement, AR for training in the Military, and More
Welcome to this week's edition of our digital transformation newsletter.
Our focus is on finding practical, real-business examples of how technology is driving change and transformation across different industries.
This week, we look at:
- How and why the VA is focusing on digital transformation (from their CIO)
- The role of low-code and no-code in modernizing manufacturing processes
- How blockchain is being used in supply chain procurement applications
- How the Department of Defense is using new technology, such as augmented reality (AR) to train members of the military
- And, finally, a review of the basic types of cloud migration for business owners
Thanks for reading and see you next week!
