Digital transformation; an organisational imperative

Digital transformation has become a critical undertaking for organisations to survive, compete, and grow.

The pace at which new innovations, products, and ideas are being introduced and adopted is nothing short of astonishing. Organizations of all types and sizes are embracing the prospects of digital transformation and are fast adopting modern technologies to help sustain a profitable business model and to further grow. This means that C-level executives now more than ever are faced with challenging decisions related to selecting the right technology tools and putting together cohesive systems architecture that can enable their companies to streamline operations, enhance customer experience, and become an overall digitally enabled business.

So, what is Digital Transformation? in simple terms, it is the process of identifying and implementing technologies that can help enable and accelerate business transformation.

While digital transformation is often synonymous with technological transformation, it should however be thought of more holistically. Digital transformation is a mind-set, a strategic undertaking that must start at the top, at boardrooms and executive offices first then socialized and cascaded down throughout the entire organization to create a culture that is nimble and agile. Technology is an important and fundamental aspect of digital transformation, but contrary to popular belief it is not the "magic bullet" that will fix all organisational problems. Well-defined operational processes that are closely aligned to organisational strategy are equally important, and can potentially serve as the blueprint for software architects and consultants to enable successful technology implementations.
