Digital Transformation 2019
Digital transformation is not only about technology, it’s a change in the culture of the organization. In recent years there has been a fundamental shift happening in the role of IT. CEOs increasingly want their CIOs to help generate revenue for their organizations. Almost two thirds (64percent) of the respondents to the 2017 Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey of more than 4,600 CIOs say their CEO wants the IT organization to focus on how to make money rather than save money. No longer are companies building software or running IT for cost savings and operations, but rather IT has become the primary driver of business innovation. Embracing this shift requires everyone in the company to rethink the role and impact of IT in their day-to-day experience.

Why does digital transformation matter?
There are a number of reasons that a business may undergo digital transformation, but by far, the most likely reason is that they have to. It's a survival issue for many.
CIOs and Management worried about their company’s – and their own – survival should focus on securing company-wide support and collaboration to get digital transformation right from the start. They may only get one shot. But even if business leaders don't believe they have to transform, there are many reasons why they should consider it anyway.
Their competitors are doing it. According to a Forrester Research report, executives predict that nearly half of their revenue will be driven by digital by the year 2020.
It will make them more profitable. In a recent Gartner survey, “56 percent said that their digital improvements have already improved profits.”
It will make them more efficient. Research shows, “Nine out of 10 IT decision-makers claim legacy systems are preventing them from harnessing the digital technologies they need to grow and become more efficient.”
Their customers will thank them. Whether external customers, or internal employees, people have already largely adopted digital practices in all facets of their lives, from shopping online via their mobile devices to adjusting their home thermostat remotely. They are waiting for businesses to catch up.
Digital transformation has to be adopted throughout the company. Departments working in Silo would not have the impact needed to give the outcome. Hence, we recommend it is attended by:
Department Leaders & Supervisors
Trainers, and others who wish to understand Digital Transformation.
