How large  are global corporations transforming themselves?  Organizational transformation is about organizational change which the change goes to the depths of what an individual feels and will affect what people feel about the organization, what they do in the organization and maybe what they hold dear to life. Organizational transformation is more than just changing the way business is done. It is about changing the organizational culture in one or more ways.

In this article, we focus our attention on the importance of organizational change around the introduction of new mobile technology. Around the world, organizations implement mobility to enhance or balance their business demands and opportunities, and to increase their productivity and profitability. In this article, we propose to address the issue of successful mobile implementation into the existing information system and to analyze its impact on organization. We consider how organizations manage the mobile environment with their existing standardized IT environment. The research comprised of an extensive literature review including the study from various books and articles around mobility, connectivity and information systems.

Transforming the organization refers to any significant change made to an organization such as, restructuring an organization or reengineering an organization and/or there is a significant change in the way business is done. The question is, of course, what is significant relative to a given organization.
