Quotes & Commentary:
"Digital transformation is a journey that organizations must be fully prepared to undertake," said Dr. Khoshafian. "As the new digital era takes hold, businesses must not only manage these new technologies, but also ensure they are maximizing the potential impact these technologies can have on their organizations and their customers. Digital experience competency centers are the key to success."

"The digital era is already revealing a healthy tension between rapid development of applications and solutions, and the consistency and discipline provided by competency centers," said Roeck. "These centers will continue to play a significant role in enabling the continuous improvement, governance, and best practices for these solutions on an ongoing basis. It's vital that this is a critical part of any digital transformation project."
