First of all, if you have not heard the term Digital Transformation, then you are like in the over 50% of Canadian businesses who have not heard the term. It doesn’t mean that you may not be already implementing the concepts, just you don’t define it as Digital Transformation.
Digital Transformation is defined as transforming business and organizational activities, processes and functions to leverage technology.
This may be both hardware and software-based solutions. Examples are converting to a newer inventory management system, changing your accounting software, using mobile devices such as smartphones/ tablets or even saving important documents to Cloud services such as Microsoft One Drive or Google Drive.
A Digital Transformation is much more than just implementing these elements, its ensuring that all of these components work effectively together, and they are the right choices for your organization. As a business, we sometimes are willing “try” a product or software and see how it works. The challenge is that these types of trial and error are not only costly from a purchase perspective but a time one as well. If the correct questions are not asked, and the proper considerations not made the risk to your organization may be critical.
