Organizations — across industries — are feeling the pressure to digitally transform. The catalysts of this push come from many sources, but what does it all mean at the end of the day? Do companies need to scrap everything and start from scratch? 

Join in on our upcoming Tweet Jam to discuss where your business should be with digital transformation and share some tips on how to get there. 

The conversation kicks off at 10 am PT / 1 pm ET / 1700 GMT on Thursday, April 28. As always, the broader CMSWire community is welcome to take part. Join in by using the #dxchat hashtag, logging in to our chatroom or through Cover it Live, found below on the day of the chat.
