Transformational leaders committed to moving towards smart, data-driven management should start thinking about how they can improve their organization's agility, which means first having a good understanding of what an agile framework is about and choosing which practices and methodologies are best suited to implement in each transformation initiative.
Business transformation is best managed when there are smart leaders who recognize the needs of the organization and are willing to guide it on the right direction. Smart leadership is a critical capability that companies must put into practice when they set out to build a data-driven culture in the organization.
The combination of Big Data, analytics, and AI (BDAI) is going to generate great business opportunities and competitive advantages for companies around the world. Through the integration and interoperability of these technologies, companies are going to be able to transform their operations and business model and, in the medium and long term, obtain significant gains in efficiency and productivity.
The ethical considerations that arise from deep business transformation often go unnoticed by transformational leaders. However, ethical behavior in business transformation plays an increasingly important role, since it can provide new perspectives to understand both the transformation processes themselves and the new impacts that are emerging.

Similar to how human learning evolves from birth to adulthood, a cognitive system learns and becomes more intelligent over time from the information it gains each time it interacts with its environment and the experience it accumulates. This paradigm shift from rule-based computing to autonomous learning and reasoning promises to change computing forever.
