Digital transformation is a journey for companies, regardless of the industry they are in. Leaders in this field are already getting the upper hand by automating not just their key processes, while some companies are still on the verge of making these serious decisions.
However, no matter how far along the road a company might be, with all the advancements coming up, digital transformation is going to be with us for at least the foreseeable future.
This, of course, leads to a whole set of fundamental questions and challenges, including how to set the best possible path. What should the focus be and how, ultimately, will my company truly benefit from all the investment needed? Yet another angle is how, provided that the roadmap has already been set, will I execute all the plans? IT initiatives are notorious for often running behind schedule and going significantly over budget.
This is precisely where consulting services come in. Joining forces on the path to further digitization almost always results in additional insights uncovered by combining differing perspectives.
They can in addition help with most steps prior to kicking off the project, where the cost of change is greater by an order of magnitude. In return, companies get significant risk reduction and maximize the chance of a successful solution launch, both vital steps on that very journey.
The infographic below identifies the stages and key aspects that often go wrong in transformational initiatives and how consulting could be of help in overcoming them.
