Discovery & Assess – First step of digital transformation
July 9th, 2016
A business has chosen to implement digital transformation. A solid understanding of current baseline is crucial to its success. Here’s how to begin. Is the existing environment suitable and prepared to handle the latest technology? A readiness assessment will determine to what extent are the pre-requisites fulfilled, any changes necessary to start the transition. Cost and compatibility analysis are the bedrock for the clearest approach that would be tailor-made to fit company-wide requirements. Whenever switching from mechanisms of old to new occurs, speedbumps along the road are expected. They can however be mitigated if this primary step is expertly carried out.
