Kevin Benedict Interviews Digital Transformation Expert: Jitin Agarwal on Managing Digital Assets and Code Halos

Mobility is forcing companies to rethink just about every part of their business.  Product catalogs are becoming mobile apps.  Marketing brochures are becoming videos, PDFs, email messages or mobile apps.  Maps now are apps. Books, music, videos and paper envelopes with letters in them are all digital today! Much of the physical is being transformed into digital, and then sent to mobile devices these days.  How effective is your company at keeping up with these transformations?  How do you effectively manage the massive amount of digital assets that are being created by your company monthly?  How do you ensure digital brand integrity?  How do you update your marketing and informational collateral worldwide in a digital world?

Information based industries like financial services, banks, education, healthcare and many others are finding their worlds are being turned upside down as a result of digital transformation.  Because of this chaos (and fun), I reached out to a colleague of mine Jitin Agarwal, Venture Leader at Cognizant to learn his thoughts on these changes and what his venture is doing to help manage this digital transformation.  Enjoy!
