The speed of doing business in a digital world is accelerating and due to technological advances, organisations across every vertical are facing a wave of digital disruption due to significant investment in digital infrastructure. Our home lives are already being driven into the future by digital processes, so why isn’t your business?
A major report on Digital Transformation from Deloitte that profiled 3,700 business executives from 131 countries across 27 different industries saw that 87% of participants believed that digital technologies would disrupt their industry.
59% of those business executives believed that digital technologies would disrupt their organisations to a great extent and only 11% of those surveyed believed that their organisation was adequately prepared for digital disruption. Issues such as lack of resources, too much data and lack of focus were felt to be the biggest threat as a result of digital trends, closely followed by internal issues such as inflexible cultures, lack of complacency and market disruption.
There is no better time to start your Digital Transformation journey than now.
What is Digital Transformation?
The process of transforming your business is a journey and an on-going opportunity for an organisation to operate better, collaborate more and grow. Digital Transformation has become one of the most viable routes to accelerate processes and creating business opportunities in an ever-evolving technological landscape.
Digital Transformation is a process that keeps your organisation up to speed with the latest changes in technology and with the specific emphasis on Cloud-based technologies that transforms an organisation work and IT environments. Over time, this will fundamentally change how your organisation operates and will deliver seamless efficiency to your clients as well as changing internal company cultures which is one of the biggest benefits of Digital Transformation.
Although Digital Transformation is a broad term, it doesn’t just apply to making information available digitally but applies to many aspects of business process automisation. It can involve many different technologies and is entirely bespoke depending on the needs of each individual organisation. Our own Cloud Productivity and Security package, Unite, also helps organisations achieve Digital Transformation.
