I have seen many businesses saying they have embarked on digital transformation while in reality, they have just digitized some of their processes.There is confusion over the two terms, Digitization & Digital Transformation.   The two terms are often used interchangeably when their actual meanings are totally different. In fact, they point to two very different ways of responding to disruptive technology. Let me talk about Digitization: It is doing the same things, differently. To digitize is to convert analog data into digital form. If you scan physical papers into electronic files, converted typewritten text into a digital form, switched from cassette tapes to MP3 files, or moved from old style camera film to digital photos, then you have digitized your data. It also means automation...

Not sure, how CBI and investigation departments are doing it right now but CDR is the key role player in today’s world.
