This is the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and rapid digitization is bringing about tremendous changes in our society and business. In particular, new technologies such as IoT (Internet of Things), Big Data, and AI (Artificial Intelligence) are evolving with tremendous momentum, and companies are required to drastically transform their businesses themselves by utilizing digital technologies. This is called "Digital Transformation (DX)", and it is essential to transform corporate management through the reform of corporate IT departments. DX is progressing overseas like this, but, is Japanese companies able to cope with this change? And if not, what kind of change should we make in the future? In this research, in the global management environment where digital transformation is progressing, we focused on the corporate IT department, and surveyed on problem recognition and organizational reform of each company, and analyzed the tendency. In Japan, Ambidexterity's theory is too biased toward "exploitaion", and has not been able to shift to "exploration". Especially, Japanese don’t like change and have slow organizational decisions. Therefore, IT department and the digitalization department should be separated first. And, cluster analysis proved that the involvement of top management to DX departments contributed to the progress of DX.
