The Digital Transformation process optimizes the value of organizational data by creating contextual intelligence from it to drive business value. Data is at the heart of digital transformation. Data must be:
Easily, quickly, and reliably accessible
Increasingly automated in collection, delivery, and execution
The goal of digital transformation is to increase the speed of applications and services deployment, simplify and enhance the customer experience, and provide access to more information more quickly.
A strong digital platform is the most fundamental technology foundation. Organizations need to standardize platforms with consistent design and architecture, securely and within budget. It’s a complex challenge to modernize data centers with near end-of-life infrastructures and large proprietary legacy hardware devices.
To tackle digital transformation, an organization must combine strong leadership with digital activity. Thinking differently is a crucial piece of digital transformation; leaders must have the willingness to change, and a vision of how to transform their company to grow and thrive in a digital world.
