36 AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2021 DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION – THE FUTURE OF TODAY'S ECONOMY I n the current economic climate, organizations are naturally trying to work out priorities for their business strategies and decide how to best lever- age opportunities as countries, cities, and com- munities move into the recovery phase. The CO- VID-19 pandemic has shone a light on digitalization or digital transformation and how it can help provide cost efficiencies, speed up delivery of products and services, enhance sustainability, and create new ways of working and keeping workforces safe. For many, the pandemic created the need to move to a digital platform and be- come comfortable collaborating online. This was the beginning of their digital transformation journey. Defence organizations and the global aerospace and defense industry have also faced the challenges caused by the pandemic. With new priorities, rapidly changing information, and increased internal and external expec- tations, the industry needs to adjust to a new and rap- idly changing reality. There is a need to transform and invest in the latest digital technologies to not only fuel a major shift in the industry but also to thrive beyond the immediate horizon.
