The sources and main audience for financial journalism tend to need to
talk about technical trade and professional things that they don't know
or work closely with.

Their jargon-forming mechanism might easily misapprehend or abstract the
IT<--digital relationship you described, and end up with digital==IT. It
suffices for their purposes, but doesn't communicate in the live IT
Support setting.
