The Imperative of Embracing Digital Transformation Now

New Customer Experience Expectations


Customer experience (CX) is the new marketing battlefront. More than two-thirds of marketers responsible say their companies compete mostly on the basis of CX. And in two years’ time, 81% say they expect to be competing mostly or completely on the basis of CX.6

Innovative Business Models


Gone are the days when product and service updates were delivered monthly. Now we have reached a point where continuous development is required to meet the ever-evolving needs of customers and employees. This agility is fueling the innovation today’s business requires to remain relevant in an always-on world.

Empower Your Workforce


Employees are the foundation of your business and what drives your products and services—and the future of your company.

Where to Start?

Start with Your Apps.

Rationalize Legacy Applications

Before you start a DX journey, you need understand your current state. It’s critical to document your infrastructure, the legacy applications running on that infrastructure, the interconnections and dependencies, as well as articulate the business use case for each application. By documenting each application and its role in the business, prioritization can then take place of where it makes the most sense to start the transformation journey.

Embrace Hybrid IT

As you embark on implementing the technology vision, you want to take advantage of the latest applications and data — yet you have to maintain the workloads and processes that run your business today. A hybrid IT approach is where you’ll find the best of both worlds, where you can still maximize the performance, cost and agility of applications, while matching each application and workload to the right IT platform.

Take It One Project at a Time

Build a long-term strategy based on smaller projects. When developing your transformation plan, time to value and speed of execution is key, so it only makes sense to build your transformation plan as a series of smaller projects happening in tandem across the organization. This takes the pressure of a huge undertaking off the IT team and gives them opportunities to enjoy success on a regular basis, all while incrementally moving the dial towards real transformation.

Find a Partner You Can Trust

With so many different technologies hitting the market, it’s incredibly difficult for any organization to truly know that one versus another is the best fit for their environment. A seasoned partner can be an invaluable asset in guiding your decision. In addition, they know that making the right platform and application choice is only part of the challenge, as integrating it into your current applications and workloads without creating new complexities and risk is critical.
