The first stage of digital transformation is the digitization of existing processes and procedures. In the analog world, these were primarily organized by procedural rules and forms. In digital transformation, these processes and workflows are increasingly modeled by digital workflows. However, previous analog processes and workflows are not adopted one-to-one into the digital world. In digital transformation, processes and procedures must be rethought with the help of existing digital technologies such as the Internet of things, the blockchain or artificial intelligence. In some cases radically new procedures and processes must be implemented. This often goes hand in hand with a fundamental restructuring of companies: the responsibilities and roles of employees are changed in the course of digital transformation, and new responsibilities are created.
