More and more companies are implementing digital transformation to gain a competitive edge.
The rest are being left behind, acquired or liquidated.
At Utopia, we are very aware that every business is different, and so must its strategy be. We work with a diverse range of businesses from SMEs to global organisations helping to diagnose the challenges that face them and implement digital solutions to achieve their goals.
This blog is the first of a short series in which we will endeavour to detail the complete process necessary for an effective and achievable digital transformation.
The first step in the process is to do an audit of the challenges facing the company.
We help clients to think about and answer key questions such as “How can we increase our profitability and find new avenues for growth?”, or “How can we expand our company into new markets?”
Having identified the key challenges for the company, we can begin to evaluate the various digital transformation alternatives.
There are many varied facets to the process and while we might propose one, some, or all of these as part of the strategy, it is important to remember that digital transformation is a means to an end and one should always keep the objectives in mind. For example, delivering added value to customers and shareholders.
Here are just a few of the tactics and avenues to be considered in planning the digital transformation.
Companies no longer operate in silos. Expertise in the cloud, connectivity and big data analysis is vital in building a digital ecosystem.
We help companies use data from their IoT solutions in numerous ways to get to market faster, monetising their data findings to best advantage.
According to the Digital Transformation Survey, the second biggest challenge companies face is the mismatch of their existing toolsets. Whether internal or outsourced, the building of a strong IT infrastructure is central to the transformation.
The biggest challenge most companies face with digital transformation is in not having the internal expertise to take on the initiative. This is when partners are critical to the process.
Utopia has huge experience in working with companies from diverse business streams, and we have learnt the key areas of help that are needed from an external partner to achieve a successful digital transformation.
We are able to share successful approaches and best practices, demonstrating how success was achieved.
Our consulting services help integrate digital processes, supporting them in navigating the landscape of digital innovation.
While digital transformation is important, the first step is to understand what digital transformation means to your company. The word “digital” can have different meanings to different companies since digital transformation is the means to solve a problem and each organisation, depending on its maturity, industry, competition, value chain, and ecosystems, has unique problems.
