Social, real-time and mobile is changing the way we do business.

Digital Transformation

Uncover the Business Opportunity. Why Digital Transformation?

In a world of digital transformation (DX) CEOs expect that 15-50% of future earnings growth will come from disruptive technologies1. To achieve this staff require the following:

  • access to the right information wherever they are on any device
  • be able to easily collaborate with internal and external contacts to make efficient and timely decisions

The DX Landscape

The lack of a central and simple access point to company data and processes adds to the already challenging levels of information overload (90% of the worlds data was generated in last two years) and is one of the contributors to a lack of engagement within the modern workforce.2 Intranets or internal portals can be a way to provide this centralised capability. The option to scale through on-demand cloud services means that a more agile approach to delivery is possible.

Understanding Your Value

One of the challenges of the shift to the cloud is the skills evolution. To excel in the digital transformation arena, your service sweet spot needs to change from engineering a technical solution to consulting led and business advice driven conversations.

Success for IT service providers will be directly correlated to the trust you build with your customers. While that might have been defined by personal trust previously, in this new world trust is defined by delivering on promises and SLAs coupled to transparency and a new sales model that embraces the fact you’re your customers and prospects are more informed than ever.

How to Start Your DX Conversation

IT spending is driven by business requirements, and business leaders want IT to be focused on business results, innovation and continuous improvement. Digital leaders place a premium on internal collaboration, creating processes and teams that integrate various functions across the business, with incentives for sharing. With the focus on business growth and the need for enhanced collaboration there are business and technology stakeholders including:

The Board

Easy access to information about the business allows the board to carry out its role more efficiently.


Make the finance department a key advocate.


With a shift from Chief Information to Chief Innovation Officers, the interests of ITDMs has changed.

Line of Business Managers
