Board Action Plan: 10 Steps to Digital Transformation

Ambitious business owners will always look for ways to improve the way their organisation functions. Digital transformation is just one way. It enables a business to function more efficiently and in the long term with greater cost savings. But to see any of these transformations occur there is a requirement for a solid IT strategy that fits in with the overall business strategy and an experienced technical leader to help you get there.

This is our final piece in the DT series and is the Board action plan that will help you get started on your own journey. It covers ideas around automation and artificial intelligence, risk analysis, data visualisation and much more which are all achievable if you’ve got a vision and the right people to get you there.

So what exactly is Digital Transformation?

For our clients, Digital Transformation simply means using IT to deliver dramatic improvement. That’s different to just an upgrade or fixing some niggling problems. It means: using IT to make a significant change for the better.

That may just mean simple IT done well – that’s surprisingly rare! Or it may mean genuine technology innovation, something that is breaking new (or new’ish) ground.

We simplify this issue by defining 4 different kinds of transformation:

1. Market break-through
2. Wow customers
3. Internal redesign
4. Tame the risks

For an explanation about the 4 types, read our original post.

AI and Its Impact on Business

Companies from Amazon to Aviva are investing in future technology like Artificial Intelligence (AI), changing their businesses, and filing patents to protect their new ideas. They aim to radically change how they work, to redefine good service, and to massively reduce their costs. This is concerning for domestic, mid-sized businesses for whom this kind of innovation can feel out of reach.

This briefing aims to sort fact from fiction and to separate what’s hype from what’s happening. It also provides some real-world examples drawn from our own clients. We look at the opportunities this opens up for ambitious businesses, the accessibility of machine learning tools / AI services from the likes of Microsoft and IBM and automation of business processes.
