Enterprise Digital Transformation

Digital disruption is rapidly changing the way organizations do business across all verticals, and no industry is immune.

Digital disruption refers to the change that occurs when new digital technologies and business models affect the value proposition of existing goods and services. Innovation in business technology has reached a breakneck pace and customers expect a first-class digital experience across all industries.

Although the majority of executives recognize that digital disruption will have a direct effect on their business, they often fail to adequately prepare for it. When it comes to digital disruption, executives generally focus their energy on re-evaluating their business processes and technology, and the human element gets lost in the process.

The current generation of business leadership represents the most significant barrier to transformational success. Millennials are poised to become the largest generation in the workforce and have brought with them a radically different — and innovative — approach to business, one that focuses on transparency, open-mindedness, and thinking big. Current business leadership has proven to be reluctant to adopt this thinking and resistant to change, which prevents their organizations from evolving with the times.

To avoid going extinct, organizations must make a concerted effort to attract the best and brightest new talent from the millennial generation while retaining existing talent by creating an ecosystem that capitalizes on the strengths of both. In accordance with this line of thinking, more organizations are working toward becoming software companies, moving away from an asset-heavy approach to a platform-heavy one, and shifting their culture with enterprise digital transformation.

Digital transformation is a strategic program of incremental improvements in people, processes, and tools aimed at maximizing the potential business and cultural contributions of digital technology and media.

Digital transformation represents a major ongoing corporate collision — a crossroads between the certainty, 5-year plans, and success-at-all-costs approach of traditional thinking and the calculated risks, 90-day sprints, and fail smart learning of digital thinking. Enterprise digital transformation forces business leadership to think outside the box to attract and empower top talent, revolutionize the customer experience, optimize operations, and transform products and service offerings.

The percentage of startups that have adopted a digital transformation strategy (compared to only 30% of digital enterprises).

To truly capitalize on digital transformation, organizations must do the following:

  • Develop an action plan to integrate digital culture into their executive core
  • Identify and prioritize relevant business challenges
  • Determine which industry disruptors will have the greatest effect on their business
  • Look for smart, agile opportunities as a foundation for adaptation
  • Build a technological foundation for the enablement of digital capabilities
  • Institute organizational change management to ensure adoption of a cross-company digital culture
  • Integrate technological realism into their business strategy

The ultimate goal of digital transformation is not only to become a company that thrives in the current digital economy, but to become a company that puts others out of business. To achieve this, organizations must keep in mind that digital transformation is a long-term culture change, not a short-term project.

  • Identify savings by leveraging and optimizing on Microsoft Azure
  • Plan a cloud migration, including contingency planning and assessment of networks, storage, and virtualization
