Digital Transformation and Technology Transformation are some of the latest buzzwords commonly used by business leaders as the next go-to investment to bring your organisation to the next level. However, this process is often not very straightforward and could easily go wrong.
Major technology initiatives, like the implementation of new enterprise systems such as CRM or ERP, can be intimidating. They are usually expensive, take a long time to complete, carry a high risk of failure and can be very disruptive to the company’s day-to-day operations.
Applications that focus on specific business functions such as scheduling software, while less costly, often come with their own set of challenges such as limited functionality and the need to integrate multiple systems.
Despite these challenges, companies that have invested in digital technologies are reporting increased productivity, lower costs and improved product quality. They are also better positioned to react more rapidly to market changes and have better growth prospects.
Understanding how technology applies to a company is fundamental for this process to work. Expectations and investments must be clearly aligned, and every change implemented must be meaningful and effectively adhered to.
If technology is not important for you, it won’t be the thing that changes your business. You can’t expect to witness Digital or Technological Transformation if core value-adding activities of your company aren’t integrated with tech.
To establish your priorities and define these areas, we recommend the creation of a technology roadmap.
A technology roadmap can help you move forward with confidence and purpose while avoiding costly mistakes. It will help you align your IT projects with your strategic priorities, plan for the long term, and define your needs and goals before investing.
