Overview

Understanding how to solution digital technologies is a key pillar in any organization's digital transformation.

In a hyper-competitive market, digital forward organizations understand how to leverage technology to their advantage. But business transformation doesn't happen overnight. It starts with identifying opportunities for change – and using novel technology and innovative thinking to make it happen.

Powered by SAIT's new DX Talent Hub, the Digital Solutioning course is part of SAIT's Corporate Training's DX Transformation series. 

This six-week connected learning course helps leaders and champions of innovation identify and implement digital initiatives to boost performance for a competitive edge. 

Many emerging technologies can be obscure, and it can be difficult to understand their capabilities and integration. This program will tie together a foundation of digital with design thinking and business value lenses to enable people to truly see the "art of the possible". By taking this course, your team will work with leading experts to:

  • Become familiar with game-changing technologies including blockchain, IoT, artificial intelligence and robotic process automation.
  • Examine how digital technologies can be connected, integrated and scaled for digital initiatives.
  • Discover the pathways and processes needed to implement digital solutions in your organization.
  • Evaluate risk, effort and business value of digital solutions.
  • Create a conceptual digital proposal for your organization.

Connected learning experience

Along with pre and post work, weekly sessions are supported with instructor-led video or face-to-face sessions.

Connect with like-minded industry leaders to share common challenges and explore innovation strategies.

Industry guest speakers will share experiences of their own transformation journeys and how they overcame the impediments they faced.

Ongoing support between the virtual sessions is available to provide guidance and direction as you utilize the tools and frameworks in your organization.
