We have seen huge changes in IT in recent years. You only have to look back ten years to see how drastically technology has evolved and how organisations are run as a result. A buzz phrase that has been used increasingly is digital transformation, but what is it and why could it be crucial to your business’ future success?
One of the first results when you google digital transformation is “the adoption of digital technology by a company, with the goal to improve efficiency, value or innovation.” Digital transformation will mean different things to different companies and the goals they want to achieve. It’s not just as simple as implementing a new piece of technology or software, instead, digital transformation can be manifested through changing the culture of the organisation, boosting employee skill sets or looking more deeply at how we work on a daily basis in order to continually improve performance and efficiency.

If you’re in a competitive industry, gaining any sort of competitive advantage could business critical. Digital transformation could be providing a new service, driving costs down or simply creating a better experience for the consumer. Gartner recently reported that 56% of organisations believed that their digital improvements have already improved profits, and transformation plans can even go as far as helping to reduce environmental impact. Other benefits of a successful digital transformation project include greater resource management, employee empowerment and improved internal and external communication and collaboration.
