Digital Transformation Status Check

Tuesday 11 September 2018

What is digital transformation? For such a popular buzzword, there is a surprising amount of disagreement over its exact definition—so much so that many IT commentators settle for talking about what digital transformation isn’t. And digital transformation isn’t just about the technology.

The focus is on customer journeys—making every interaction on every channel work for the customer, on the customer’s terms.

Gartner’s 2018 CIO Agenda Report demonstrates that digital transformation is at least on the agenda. While CIOs’ top priority is growth (cited by 26% of respondents), #2 is digital transformation (at 17%). And CIOs view the two as linked, with 56% reporting that digital initiatives increase profits.

That finding is rather bullish, however, compared with other industry feedback. In a recent Commvault poll, for example, half of respondents cited a need for better data collection and management and more than two-thirds said their organizations aren’t ready for cloud migration or data protection.

Maybe the common exhortation to “fail fast and fix it”—if applied broadly and consistently across an enterprise—is actually the definition of digital transformation we’ve been looking for all along.
