What Is Meant By The Term Digital Transformation?

Published: 10th January 2023

We’ve heard the term Digital Transformation bandied around for several years now, but what does it mean?

Let’s look at one possible definition.

Digital Transformation is the process of integrating technology into all areas of your business.

The aim then is to be able to experience the following benefits:

  • Driving better operational efficiency
  • Enhancing customer experience
  • Enabling increased workforce productivity
  • The overall goal with Digital Transformation must be to drive business success and growth through the use of technology.

The implementation of a Digital Transformation strategy is often accompanied by a cultural shift within the business.

To successfully implement change, your team need to be dedicated to supporting it and be prepared to embrace the values Digital Transformation brings.

If this is not the case, you risk slow adoption and will likely see a loss in productivity.

There are several potential challenges to look out for that may limit the success of your strategy.

Some of the more common issues we see are a lack of vision or support from the business leaders, workplace culture coupled with resistance to change and a lack of available skills and talent.

We believe the best approach to Digital Transformation is to go with a ‘Cloud First’ technology strategy.

Cloud adoption is at an all-time high, no doubt accelerated by the recent pandemic.

Many business leaders are seeing the benefits moving to the cloud can bring; giving them greater flexibility to respond to changing market conditions, increased capabilities to meet customer demand and a range of productivity tools, which if leveraged effectively will lead to improved business efficiency.
