With Digital Transformation: Visions of Nations, Companies, and People, Filmmaker Manuel Stagars portrays our journey into digital transformation and its opportunities and challenges in conversations with leading scientists, entrepreneurs, corporate decision makers, politicians, artists and others. Video interviews and clips from the documentary stream online in short and long versions ahead of the final film, which makes the project an interactive knowledge portal on digital transformation as well.
The feature-length documentary film gives a balanced view on our global digital future, making the topic accessible to non-experts in all walks of life around the world. Digital Transformation extends the filmmaker’s existing research in Fintech and blockchain to the global pioneers in digital transformation and their expectations for the impact of technology on nation states, companies, and people.
Digital transformation is the third stage of a process that begins with digitization and digitalization. Digitization describes the conversion of analog information into digital form, while digitalization is the process of using digital information. Both have enabled today’s cutting edge trends, such as the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Big Data, robotics, blockchain, or cryptocurrencies. Digital transformation describes the final stage where technology fundamentally changes the way nations, economies, and societies function. Within the next years, digital transformation may alter the way we have lived as a species for the last centuries. An exciting time in history, indeed.
