Digital Transformation

Digital transformation refers to the adoption of data and digital solutions for business activities and processes. It engages people with digital workflows to promote the full advantage of technology investments across an organization. Digital transformation is more than just replacing manual processes with digital processes – the expected outcomes are cultural change and the adoption of re-imagined processes that take full advantage of well-defined digital strategies.

A company that digitally transforms successfully becomes a digital enterprise and enjoys competitive advantages such as:

  • More efficient use of resources and reduction of errors
  • Application of knowledge sharing for innovative new ideas
  • Agile responsiveness to competitive threats, market disruptions and opportunities presented by new prospects, mergers, and acquisitions

Elements of the digital transformation process - Evolving into a digital enterprise

Digital transformation usually involves:

  • Unifying separate sets of data and embedding automated data analytics into user interfaces and workflows to ensure that strategic and tactical decisions are driven by data-based insights

  • Making work transparent through shared applications to improve accountability, accelerate processes, and gain the agility to respond to or drive market disruption.
