The past years of researching digital transformation and the accumulated experience of practitioners in deploying projects of novel digital technologies have allowed us to gain much valuable insight about the process. From this assembly of knowledge, there is a lot we can learn about how to conduct future research, as well as a depth of knowledge regarding best practices that can aid practitioners. In this chapter, we provide some key input on how research and practice can approach digital transformation and discuss some ideas that are likely to be central in the near future. We draw on some streams of literature which have yet to be fully integrated in the current discourse of digital transformation research and provide some practical guidelines that can aid practitioners at different levels. We conclude with a brief overview of some key technologies which are likely to be in the spotlight of attention in the upcoming years and discuss their implications for research and practice.
