Digital Transformation: Myths & Facts

11 March, 2020


There are many myths regarding digital transformation, so let’s take a look at the real facts that can ensure you make the right choices in our modern connected world.

Where are you on your journey of digital transformation? Because that’s what it is, an ongoing journey, not a destination, moving ever forward in an increasingly digital world. Taking stock of the way our business works, and how best to use the available technologies has always been a good idea, but nowadays, with technology moving at such a fast pace, it’s more important than ever to have a finger on the pulse of the latest developments and truly understand how technology can aid your business, and to ensure you don’t get left behind. There are many myths regarding digital transformation, so let’s take a look at the real facts that can ensure you make the right choices in our modern connected world…

Digital Transformation is not a one-off event

It can be easy to think that you simply need to digitally transform your business and that’s the job done. You can hire in some tech experts to transform your business and that will be that. But it’s simply not the case. Your digital business needs to evolve, it needs to keep up with the ever-advancing technologies. As customer expectations change and move on, so your business needs to match and exceed those expectations.

Digital Transformation is more than simply digitisation  

Digitisation is the act of using digital technologies to enhance a particular process. This may be to save time, to cut costs or to give greater data analysis capabilities. Digitisation may be part of your digital transformation, but it is also so much more. A digital transformation will affect all aspects of your business, bringing wide ranging benefits wherever it is possible.

Digital transformation does not equate to job losses

People worry that an increasing level of automation could mean that they’ll eventually become redundant, but in fact, this is more in the realms of science fiction than real life. The computers are not going to take over our jobs. Our roles may change, but these new tools will enhance our ability to do our jobs, and new positions will open up to take care of the technology and the data created by it.

Everyone needs to be on board

A digital transformation isn’t just about purchasing some new tech gadgets or installing the latest software. It’s a transformation of people’s attitudes as much as it is about transforming the methods and equipment used. Your whole team needs to get on board with the changes that will be ongoing. Enthusiasm goes a long way towards ensuring your digital transformation is a success.
