Organisations have been evolving, improving, disrupting and transforming forever. Advancements in technology often fuel projects to implement new systems and sometimes, to completely re-architect the digital platforms we use to run our businesses.
Digital transformation projects hold the key to making wholesale changes to make significant improvements to productivity, customer engagement, enterprise reporting and other drivers of value. It's likely that almost every business has undertaken some level of digital transformation project by now, and for many, its already occurred several times.
Digital transformation projects are similar to every other technology project, in that they can fail. They can fail and cause significant disruption, or they can fall short of the expected benefits they were intended to achieve. Cost overruns, delayed implementation and underdelivery of promises plague many implementations. But we continue to launch new projects in pursuit of improvements, efficiencies and profit.
Technology isn't static. Advancements in automation, artificial intelligence and data analytics represent enormous opportunities for all. Decades ago, a best-of-breed approach to developing lengthy requirements documents, finding the very best applications, and doing lots of modifications and customisations to suit existing business processes was the favoured approach. Promises were made about how these disparate systems would be integrated to enable the end-to-end process improvements that were expected, but often these projects fell short
A modern approach with digital transformation projects is to adopt of best-of-platform approach. This sees the implementation of an already loosely integrated system that can be deployed rapidly, in a standard solution where the organisation adjusts its policies and practices to suit the software where possible, rather than the other way around. This approach reduces costs and risk substantially. It also allows for embedding cybersecurity systems, which are part of the platform rather than an additional component added as an afterthought that may or may not be compatible with the systems implemented.
