xtype’s Scott Willson highlights the parallels between the DevOps philosophy and digital transformation

Perhaps the biggest challenge with digital transformation lies in understanding where the transformation occurs. Digital transformation doesn't begin or end by offloading workloads or moving core systems to the cloud. It doesn't come about through the development a cool customer-facing app. Paralleling its philosophical forerunner, DevOps, the process of digital transformation begins by looking inward. It is a matter of organization. "Digital transformation initiatives should be focused not on customer solutions, but on day-to-day business fundamentals," says Scott Willson, head of product marketing for xtype.io, a software startup that works primarily with large enterprise clients that use the ServiceNow cloud computing management platform. "You've got to be the best version of yourself before you can put your best foot forward for your customers."

Ron Gidron, CEO of xtype: “The cliché’s true. Get ready to be met with scepticism, disbelief, and disappointment”

We hope that Ron Gidron isn’t easily offended. In particular, we hope that he doesn’t mind if we suggest that xtype is one of the least sexy products we are covering in our TakeOff series of interviews with startup founders. No blockchain, no ridiculous claims, no glamorous offices. Instead, xtype does what so many less successful startups forget: it solves a clear, well-defined problem. “I founded xtype to help customers unleash the full potential of ServiceNow, the most robust platform for managing IT and developing enterprise applications,” he told us. But only, as he explains later, after finding the right team to create it. One of Ron’s key messages to wannabe startup founders: you can’t go it alone.
