This Digital Transformation eBook has Answers!

It’s simply the way the world is moving, and for good reason. The business workplace is  being drastically altered by technology as each year goes by — if you don’t embrace it, then you’ll miss out on all the benefits.

Transformation can be defined as the integration of digital technologies into all areas of your business, resulting in fundamental changes and outcomes in how your business currently operates.

In other words, it’s the initiative to use high technology for better business outcomes.  That’s rather general though, isn’t it?

To understand it, it may be more effective to look at the way technology is changing the workplace, such as that…

  • 80% of the workforce operates at least in part from outside the office.
    A vast majority (up to 80%) of IT budgets are directed towards “business as usual.”
  • That’s all businesses need to make an effort to understand how technology can affect positive change 
Some Primary Obstacles In the Way Business leaders are realizing just how powerful new technology can be, especially as the coronavirus pandemic returns employees to the office with new thoughts on remote and hybrid workplace models.
Look through these barriers to the success of digital transformation projects. Do you recognise any of them in your business? Are you confused as to where to startand what your priorities should be?
What we’ve learned is that undergoing digital transformation is easier said than done. Here are several obstacles that commonly prevent businesses from embracing digital transformation.

Four Obstacles of Digital Transformation 

  • Lack of Strategy: Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as just saying you want to “digitally transform” your business. It takes a unique understanding of available technologies and how they can be applied to your work, along with a clear vision of how this can help you achieve your business goals.

  • Management Fear of the Unknown: Many are hesitant to adopt new technologies because of what it could mean for data security. Usually, this comes down to the nature of the cloud – whether it’s the Internet of Things, or enhanced mobile device use in the workplace, managers and owners worry about how greater access to work data will affect the security of that work data.

  • Legacy Systems: Embracing digital transformation also means doing away with legacy IT systems. if the relevant digital systems are not in place, there is only so much that can be accomplished. For a lot of businesses, digital transformation represents a major overhaul in the way their organisation works, so the failure to change out legacy systems will continue to act as a significant blocker to success.

  • Risk Aversive Cultures: A risk-aversive culture blocks transformation attempts. At its core, this necessitates risk, and a business needs to ensure they are facilitating these changes from the inside out. Creating a culture where all members of a business have bought into the idea of moving forward into the digital age, and where innovation is not only welcomed but encouraged is imperative to transformation success.
