What is digital transformation?

Digital transformation is the process of integrating digital technologies into all areas of business, to create new - or update existing – business processes, operations, communications and customer experiences. It enables you to embrace intelligent, tech-facilitated systems across your business operations – allowing you to become more efficient and more productive.

Digital transformation can mean anything from IT modernisation, such as a shift to cloud computing, or a move from paper based records to spreadsheets, to the implementation of a hosted phone system or harnessing the power of new technology to interact with customers in more efficient ways e.g. via live chat. The customer of today expects to be able to reach you at the touch of a button, anytime and anywhere, so it’s vital to ensure your business is always on and ultra-responsive.

Frequently asked questions

Digital technology prepares your business for a smarter future by creating IT modernisation, such as a shift to communication platforms for efficient service delivery, harnessing the power (and security) of cloud-based tech and by developing the tools needed to support an efficient, agile workforce.

Digital transformation means starting with a strategy and creating a roadmap for the future. It means upgrading your business technology to facilitate growth and embracing a digital infrastructure that leverages automation and improves data security.

Digital transformation can include anything from IT modernisation, such as a shift to cloud computing, to the implementation of a hosted phone system or a transformational connectivity solution, to the installation of new technology to enable your team to interact with customers in new ways.

A digital transformation strategy is the planned and strategically deployed integration of technology into all areas of your business. It enables you to embrace intelligent, tech-facilitated systems across your business areas and fundamentally evolve the way you operate, communicate and deliver service to your customers.

Digital transformation prepares your business for the future with innovative technology facilitating smarter ways of working, streamlined communications, an efficient workforce, secure date and an enhanced customer experience.

There are four main components of digital transformation.

  • It starts with strategy – aligning the digital transformation effort with the overall strategy. Customer experience is key – focusing on developing a digital future that delivers unified communications and enhanced service.
  • Customer experience is key – focusing on developing a digital future that delivers unified communications and enhanced service.
  • Adopting a new way of working - Culture underpins the digital transformation to ensure the workforce is empowered by new technology and embraces new ways of working.
  • Data remains at the heart of digital transformation – using data to make informed decisions, enhance processes and support growth objectives. All stored securely in the cloud of course.

A digital transformation strategy is, in essence, a roadmap for short, medium and long-term digital transformation goals. It should be a step-by-step process:

  • This begins with aligning on the core objectives for digital transformation – answering the key questions of how, why, when and what digital transformation means for your business.
  • Focus next upon culture - your people should be at the heart of your digital transformation, ready to embrace new technologies and the accompanying benefits.
  • The next step is to determine a realistic timeline, to ensure the long-term success of your digital transformation. Map out the technology your business needs for a complete digital transformation – some may already be in place, others will need to be migrated or integrated into your overarching strategy.
  • Review options for technology partners and harness the power of their expertise to refine your digital transformation roadmap.
  • Implement and transform!

Three key areas of business need to be united for digital transformation – customer experience, operational processes and business models.
