Are we “digital” yet? An algorithmic answer to a philosophical question

“We’re entering a post-digital-transformation era, where companies are no longer planning to become ‘digital.’ They are digital.” I didn’t think that was a particularly controversial statement, which I wrote back in April while working on this year’s martech landscape.
