Digitization to Digital Transformation (Dx)

ITS’s goal is to support UTHSC during the digitization journey from paper to electronically stored documents, on the road towards full digital transformation (Dx)!

  • Microsoft provides UTHSC with OneDrive and SharePoint, which also propel us forward by removing paper from our processes and providing a digital/electronic solution to document storage.

SharePoint provides a storage location for your electronic documents. 

Dx Definitions

Step 1: Digitization is the process of changing from analog or physical (such as paper records and texts, in person lectures, physical models, ID cards, and more) to digital form.

Step 2: Digitalization is the process of using digital technologies and information to transform individual institutional operations (such as admissions, course registration, research administration, payroll, procurement, and more).

Step 3: Digital Transformation (DX) is a series of deep coordinated culture, workforce, and technology shifts that enable new educational and operating models and transform an institution's operations, strategic directions, and value proposition.
