What are the obstacles your company faces when it comes to digital transformation? Here is our take on the two biggest obstacles identified by the study and a feasible solution to overcoming each one.
What are the obstacles your company faces when it comes to digital transformation? A new study by Avanade has concluded that most companies around the world are struggling with at least one of four major issues that are stopping their path towards. We believe that identifying problems is a good thing, but finding solutions to them is even better. Here is our take on the two biggest obstacles identified by the study and a feasible solution to overcoming each one.
Hiring and training suitable staff with the right knowledge and skills for the transformation process.
Any specialty job requires specialty staff, but for most companies that aren’t IT focused, they don’t even know where to start when it comes to hiring staff that can take on the digital transformation process. And for medium to large businesses this could require an entire team, not just one or two temporary team members. Digital transformation will be an ongoing process from now on for every business.
If you see finding suitable staff as an obstacle, outsourcing the job is the easiest way to overcome it. Companies that work in transportation and logistics, medicine, or even governmental operations can find a certified digital technology company that has the extensive knowledge and experience to guide you towards digital transformation. Outsourcing to ECS International gives you instant access to a broad range of solutions, products, cloud and professional services and support that will make the entire transformation process completely feasible.
Investing in new technologies and innovations without integrating them into current systems.
The technology available is becoming overwhelming to some companies. How do you know which software is right for your business? How do you upgrade your technology without losing your current data?
The fear of making a mistake about which technology to choose and how to put it all together may be stopping you in your tracks. A digital solution is a big investment and without the proper installation it can create more problems than before. Most businesses are running hundreds of different applications in their day to day business operations and there is no doubt that putting these all together is a daunting task for any IT manager. The simplest solution? Find a trustworthy partner that specializes in integration technology to help prevent you from creating a digital spaghetti and allow you to focus on your core business.
Are either of these obstacles stopping you from completing the digital transformation process? If so, finding a team of experts is the easiest way to overcome these obstacles and get your momentum going again.
