Transformation trends are based on emerging technologies being leveraged by businesses, whether in the private or public sector, to run more efficiently and improve their service delivery and operations. The field of systems engineering plays a role in this digital transformation.
“People remain the most important assets. Fancy technologies and their capabilities are nothing without the innovation brought on by the leadership and the direction of the people who use this technology to solve real world problems. The positive impacts that come from taking advantage of digital transformation tools is very exciting.” Dr. Albert Mubako, D.Mgt, MBA, UMBC Faculty, Digital Transformation Innovation and Sustainability (SYST 691)
