Optimized technology is currently on the market, and it’s there to assist you in adopting the best hardware and software to make you competitive in the digital era. Unfortunately, simply having the right tools doesn’t mean the outcomes are always positive. While the quest for highly optimized technologies is part of the process, just as important is the planning process that allows you to utilize tools in the most appropriate manner.
How should you begin making this digital transformation that will position your organization on a path to relevance rather than irrelevance (think RadioShack, Blockbuster Video, any number of bookstores, and many other companies that failed to navigate the impending technology landscape)? Here’s what you need to consider.
Gain real-time insights into your data analytics. Your organization might have the tools in place to gather massive amounts of data, but how are you using it? Your goal should be to gain actionable data-driven insights. If you’re going to cater to the needs of your customers in real time, you need to have a process in place where your data is frequently and consistently analyzed.
Part of every transformation process involves establishing the right culture. For many, the software development culture is one of the first transformative aspects they seek to establish. Your ability to develop and successfully deploy software is what will keep you ahead of the competition.
Asking the right questions will help you ease into a digital transformation. For example, in what order will you list your priorities for your business? What data is relevant when it comes to making fact-driven decisions that help you reach your goals? All great strategies have an end goal in mind from the outset.
Before you adopt a data analytics process, make sure the results are repeatable and not a one-off occurrence. This requires plenty of testing and retesting, because it’s important to have a process in place that offers you an excellent return on investment, both in terms of time and money. Plus, without an accurate analytics strategy, you will not gain any traction in the digital transformation process.
It’s really about measuring and quantifying how your company’s products and/or services interact with your target market. When you’re on the right track you are gaining a wealth of information that will tell you how to proceed with a current or future line of products.
