Organisations face pressure to add value and stay competitive in a dynamic business landscape

Digital transformation can enhance business performance and futureproof it by making the organisation more agile and able to adapt to changing needs and technologies.

The nature of transformation can be challenging for companies and individuals. There can be several reasons for this, including a lack of vision, technical capabilities, leadership support, and long-term commitment. However, the most common causes are insufficient internal skills and the failure to hire the right support team to lead and drive transformation initiatives.

Managed service providers (MSPs) can play a major role in digital transformation, as they are uniquely positioned to support and give advice to businesses looking to drive efficiencies and success measures, underpinned by a highly experienced team of IT professionals.

The importance of managing digital transformation

Digital transformation isn’t about flicking a switch; it’s a journey that takes a series of evolutionary steps incorporating new, sometimes disruptive, technologies to change how you operate and deliver value to your customers.

However, it’s not just about embracing technology alone. It also requires investment in data, people, processes, and culture. Digital transformation has the potential to position your business for future growth, so long as you manage the process effectively.

Managing digital transformation is as important as continually monitoring recent trends. By keeping up with the latest changes in technology and business methods, you can remain agile and ensure your systems are up to date and running more efficiently.

Some of the factors currently shaping digital transformation decisions include:

  1. Sustainability is driving ongoing IT investments: Digital transformation is helping businesses make sustainable investment decisions to extend the lifecycle of their hardware device fleets and reduce carbon emissions.
  2. New, flexible ways of working: The workplace landscape is more flexible and digital than ever, and companies are embracing collaboration, solutions, and integration to create the workplace of the future.
  3. Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionising business process automation: Automation is a driving force in optimising business processes, while AI-powered digital assistants are optimising the productivity of employees to free up time for higher-value work.1
  4. Complete employee experience strategies: More C-level leaders are making the employee experience a broad strategic objective by empowering their employees to learn new skills through customised training.
  5. More layered and integrated cybersecurity defences: Businesses will need to bolster their defences through cybersecurity approaches to close data gaps and mitigate increasing threats.
  6. Digital skills gap could threaten digital transformation: Bridging the digital divide of a global skills gap is a complex issue that will require continual coaching and training by an MSP to develop employees’ digital skills and expand their technological mindset.
