Majority of the companies are involved in digital transformation efforts today. Several years have passed. You realize that not all companies are following the same path. In this article at the Enterprisers Project, Stephanie Overby discusses 5 types of digital transformation efforts that are prevalent today.
Digital Transformation Efforts: To Each His Own
As per a recent Information Service Group report, Director Jan Erik Aase reveals that each effort addresses a different challenge. Find out what type of digital transformation suits your company before you start out on your individual journey:
Legacy Challengers: These companies have various standalone technologies that do not interact with each other. This makes them incompatible with modern business conditions. However, Aase suggests them to change their organizational culture and mindset before initiating their digital transformation process.
The Strategy-Planning People: These firms work in iterations and wait for the best strategies before stepping forward. The director points out that IT must not be the only team responsible for the transformation. Executive buy-ins and sponsorship are vital for overall success.
Early Cloud Adopters: These organizations are the early cloud adopters that have implemented technologies in IT and related departments only. They believe IT is the only team that can realize ROIs for the entire company. Aase remarks that they should not implement technology just because others are. They should look for the fine prints of these cloud services to avoid misadventures later.
Digitally Native Players: These have a customer-centric approach with IT as the main driver for revenue generation. They must work on traditional and modern approaches to get the best of both worlds.
Disruption Enablers: These companies are flexible to implement any technology that can cause a disruption. Word of advice from Aase: leaders must align technology adoption with business goals to remain agile.
