“The last ten years of IT have been about changing the way people work. The next ten years of IT will be about transforming your business.”

Aaron Levie, BOX

Because the term ‘Digital Transformation’ means different things to different businesses, it resists a universal definition. With some organisations further along the road than others, and start-ups benefiting from the fact that they start afresh and have no need to transform legacy systems. There is no one size fits all solution.  Automating a factory looks very different from automating sales flows for an e-commerce company.

In short, however, digital transformation is an evolution of your business into the digital age. Incorporating digital technology into all areas of your business to leverage value for your customers. Rethinking old structures and processes, and changing how you work. Your mindset. To become more agile, innovative, data-led, and importantly, open to learning.

“There is no alternative to digital transformation. Visionary companies will carve out new strategic options for themselves — those that don’t adapt, will fail.”

Jeff Bezos, Amazon

“90% of CEOs believe the digital economy will impact their industry, but less than 15% are executing on a digital strategy.”

“We went from being the Flintstones to the Jetsons in 9 months.”
