DTOY – One community for all transformation leaders
Digital transformation – some can no longer hear the term, but that doesn’t change the ever-increasing relevance of this topic for companies. On the contrary, despite its presence, digital transformation is not being adequately implemented in large parts of the German economy. In our latest study, 21% of German companies say that they see little progress in digital transformation in their industry.
We want to change that: Started with the “Digital Transformer of the Year” award, we have since grown into the overarching “DTOY Initiative” and thus into a community of CEOs, CDOs and other transformation leaders who support each other in their professional challenges. Whether through the impulses and networking on the evening of the award, through the leading study or through further offers tailored to the wishes of the community in our DTOY toolbox – we are closely connected with our members and stand by their side in tackling the major topic of this decade, digital transformation.
The "Digital Transformer of the Year 2018" was awarded on 6th of November 2018 in the capital branch of Microsoft in the automotive, mechanical and plant engineering, industry and technology, energy and media sectors.
The winners of the “Digital Transformer of the Year 2018” were:
Stadtwerke München GmbH
Industry and technology:
Mechanical and plant engineering:
Robert Bosch GmbH
Axel Springer SE
Why did we launch the initiative?
Patronage – Dorothee Bär
Dorothee Bär, Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Chancellery, as Federal Government Commissioner for Digitisation, is the patron of the initiative and the “Digital Transformer of the Year” award.
Community & Toolbox
The “Digital Transformer” is not just an award ceremony, but part of an initiative to help CEOs, CDOs and other transformation leaders successfully master this extremely challenging task. Digital transformation threatens the very foundations of companies. Everyone who wants to ward off the associated threats or seize opportunities needs a well-equipped toolbox. That’s why we developed such a toolbox, with tools for exactly those topics that you have been particularly interested in in our surveys.
Specialists and executives from various industries take a critical look at the current state of digital transformation in their industry. This is the conclusion reached by the Digital Transformer of the Year (DTOY) initiative. Last year, the initiative surveyed specialists and executives from German companies – and also presents the DTOY Awards for those companies that represent lighthouses in the field of digital transformation through particularly successful transformation processes.
