Successfully implementing digital transformation one step at a time
The cornerstone of digital transformation is digital technologies, whose rapid and ongoing proliferation has already made a lasting impact on our society and industry. From apps and digital platforms to networked factories and virtual forms of work - new technologies frequently alter customers’ demands and behaviors and thus influence entire industries. The digital transformation affects and alters all areas of a company: Business processes and structures are put to the test, employee management and corporate culture evolve, and new products and services are created.
For companies in all industries, digital transformation offers great potential for optimizing operational processes and creating forward-looking business models. Customer experiences can also be improved and decision-making processes accelerated. These changes bring challenges and opportunities in equal measure. From small and medium-sized enterprises to international corporations, the transformation process must be managed on a case-by-case basis. In the rarest of cases, this could entail a complete realignment of the business. That being said, it is often the case that small measures and steps can help to advance digitalization.
