These terms are often used interchangeably, but there are differences between them:

  • Digitization: Transition from analog information to digital information and make that information available in digital format
  • Digitalization: Leverage digitized information in processes, and optimize the these processes
  • Digital Transformation: Build on above concepts and leverage connected things to transform processes and operations to produce better outcomes

For further information on these topics, please refer to IIC's Digital Transformation in Industry whitepaper.

How does your organization use these terms?
