  1. Hi,
    This is Mary, I attended a workshop on digital transformation and got a few pointers,
    1. Digital transformation will change your business, but focusing on the right level of change is key.
    New digital technologies should be seen as an enabler for better, more seamless and streamlined business operations that make your business competitive – driving growth. Focusing on where digital transformation can deliver the most benefits and add the most value in your quest for growth should be where you begin the change process.
    For example, in manufacturing, increased competition has necessitated a change in processes, and even sometimes a change in business models. Servitization, for example, is a transformation journey that involves firms developing the capabilities they need to provide services and solutions that supplement their traditional product offerings.
    2. Technology investment is crucial to growth but just because the technology is new, doesn’t mean it’s right for you.
    Sometimes less is more. The right use of technology can radically improve your business, but the deployment of technology for technology’s sake can be self-defeating. Being open to the transformative impact of new technologies is the most important consideration for companies around the world.
    Recent research on worldwide growth trends by Epicor found that companies in high growth markets demonstrated a strong inclination to invest in technology to empower their workforces, drive efficiencies and increase agility. In the study around three-quarters (74%) of Chinese firms, for example, cited IT investment as important, compared to a global figure of 54%.
    3. Consider where your company is on its digital transformation journey
    Growing your technology platform doesn’t necessarily mean your business will grow too. Sometimes it’s better to have fewer solutions than more, but it can be challenging for business managers to keep on top of the latest tech trends and new solutions being launched in the market.
    Many competing technologies profess to drive digital transformation, however, the utility of solutions depend on the stage your company is at in the transformation journey. From mobile sales and field services, to wireless sales counters and warehouses, to advanced inventory management – different solutions provide new ways to reduce costs, improve the customer experience, and improve the bottom line.
    4. Not everyone in your company will feel comfortable with digital transformation.
    Society and technology are changing more quickly than most companies can adapt. From enterprise resource planning (ERP) to cloud computing, new tools, platforms, and channels are creating unprecedented opportunities to connect with customers and improve internal processes – but only for the businesses agile enough to transform and adapt to these new digital realities.
    Even so, there’s no single roadmap for digital transformation and the path is different for every company and industry. However, there must be attempts to get employee buy-in from the start. This requires a commitment to digital technology from the boardroom to all levels of staff. You should have leaders with the right mind-set and motivation to lead the digital transformation process.
    5. It’s no good having data if you don’t know what it means.
    Firms that undergo a true digital transformation programme put data and information at the heart of their technology focused business models. Many are shocked to see just how much information they had but were not utilising properly. The new data landscape provides you with unique opportunities to turn data into insights – the fuel for any digital transformation journey – with real-time updates providing opportunities for better business decision-making.
    In fact, Forrester Research has found that more than 70% of decision-makers report planned or current initiatives to encourage more data-driven decisions, making unlocking the value of integrated business data critical to success in today’s modern distribution marketplace.
