Digital transformation – why should it be top of your agenda?

Each year there is a new technology trend – this year it’s no different – with digital transformation at the tip of everyone’s tongue. Is it just a buzz word or should it be top of your business’s agenda?

Gartner defines digital business transformation as “the process of exploiting digital technologies and supporting capabilities to create a robust new digital business model.”

Sounds simple in theory; however it’s not as easy as it sounds. The reality is that technology these days is a bit like a tool shed – you’ve got a lot of tools, some are old, some are new, some you don’t know how to use, and then there are a few you need to buy to get the job done.

With Gartner announcing that worldwide IT spending is projected to total $3.7 trillion in 2018, which includes the highest annual growth rate that it has forecasted since 2007, the race is on for companies to utilise and invest in the right technologies to increase efficiencies, reduce costs and give them the competitive edge.

This constant sea of technology hype makes it increasingly difficult to identify the right solution mix that will help unlock new revenue streams, while also reducing cost and risk. Then there is the challenge of integrating these often siloed solutions into your existing environments, and finding the right skills to implement them. Take a moment to think about our people and the future generations of skilled employees we need to develop to meet this challenge – are we investing enough in them?

In our recent customer satisfaction survey, customers told us that increasing operational efficiency, digital transformation, and reducing enterprise costs, are their top 3 business priorities. With the line between business and technology objectives blurring, the challenge is on IT departments to leverage existing and new technologies to deliver on the promise of business transformation.

The good news is, that you don’t need to take this journey alone. We’ve already helped customers such as, Melbourne Cricket Club, VIC SES, Transtar, and more, to create technology solutions that help to solve business challenges and put them ahead of the curve.

To help you on your journey, we’ll also bring together 14 of our world-leading technology partners, including Microsoft, HP, VMware, and Cisco, to join us at JuiceIT Melbourne in October. This event is focused on harnessing the power of people and technology to create a digital strategy – not just for now, but for the future.

You’ll also have the opportunity to speak with like-minded peers and hear from experts to understand how you can navigate the challenges, and fully leverage the opportunities afforded by digital technology.
