What is digitalization?

Digitalization is the conversion of analog information into texts, photographs, and voices, among others. The transformation is carried out through electronic devices such as scanners or specialized computer chips. Information is organized into bits which can be separately categorized into bytes. This serves as the binary data that computers can process.

Digitalization is done to process, store, and transmit the information through digital circuits, equipment, and networks. Digitalization makes it easier to access, preserve, and share information. It is essentially a process of converting everything into digital format. Ultimately, digitalization aims to ease lives and create a more self-reliant business model that promises standardized quality and cost-efficiency.
