What is Digital Transformation Strategy

What is Digital Transformation?

Put simply, digital transformation is the umbrella term used to describe the change businesses, governments and most all organizations are undergoing as they adapt to the rapidly growing use of technology, applications, and the internet.

The unprecedented impact of the Digital Revolution in recent decades has prompted the need for businesses in particular to compete for the upper hand by taking advantage of technology such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and the cloud.

Today’s digital world creates a new change imperative.

Businesses, government entities, and non-government organizations everywhere struggle with the pace, volume, and complexity of change. As a result, vast resources are wasted by multiple groups within the same organization all responding to the same change in isolation.

Digital Business Transformation is generally considered to be the third stage in embracing digital technologies. To truly compete in the modern marketplace, the use of digital tehcnologies must be absolutely optimized, embraced and used naturally throughout the organization. Examples of organizations that are coming to dominate their industry through the impact of embracing digital transformation can be seen in the cases of mostly tech companies, such as Google and Amazon.

There are hundreds of ways in which digital transformation can manifest, but some of the most notable and widely used technologies include:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Robotics
  • Process Automation
  • Data Processing
  • Social Media
  • CRM
  • Mobile Applications
  • Big Data
  • The Internet of Things
  • Cloud Computing

Undertaking Digital Transformation Strategy: What does it take?

A digital transformation journey needs a staged approach, with a clear roadmap, involving a variety of stakeholders from the C-level to the grass roots, a strong culture of innovation, beyond silos and internal/external limitations.

A digital transformation roadmap should take into account the fact that end goals will continue to move and shift. Organizations must always bear in mind, after all, that digital transformation is, by nature, an ongoing journey, as is change and digital innovation.

Dr. Mathias Kirchmer & Peter Franz

Organizations need to execute their strategy systematically and deal proactively with our “digital world”. In effect, they must know how and when to modify or enhance their business processes, which processes are best candidates for intervention, and how to move rapidly from strategy to execution.
