Digital transformation (DX) describes the process of moving from an analog world into the age of digitization. A "digital transformation strategy” lays the foundation of this process on the one hand and provides a guide through the digital transformation of your company on the other.
This blog post takes a closer look at digital transformation strategies and presents you with seven principles to develop a sound digital transformation strategy.
A digital transformation strategy outlines how you can overcome challenges that emerge when fusing the human, physical, and digital worlds.
A company's digital transformation is a holistic process that affects almost every area of the business. A DX strategy is akin to an ongoing, broad-based business strategy. So you need to re-evaluate your digital transformation strategy at regular intervals and adjust it if necessary. That will ensure your digital transformation unearths more agility, innovative products and service offerings, and operational efficiency.
To put your company's digital transformation on a solid, long-term foundation, these seven steps will help.
For many companies, their digital transformation strategy impacts a variety of local digital infrastructures. For example, even in globally active companies, digital infrastructures end at the front door of individual locations or business branches. Each branch uses its own programs, systems, templates, etc., which work locally but are not compatible at an international level. An enterprise-wide digital transformation strategy is therefore difficult to implement.
