Digital Transformation

Companies across the globe are digitally transforming as they are challenged to improve business processes and develop new capabilities and business models. In an economic reality where entire industries are changing, actionable intelligence is the new currency. Data and information have become core business assets, sources of revenue and critical enablers in the information age.

OILIFINA has a pragmatic approach. We create a digital agenda around six core initiatives – designed to speed time-to-value. It spans strategy and experimentation through to transformation leadership and performance delivery. Our approach combines business and technology expertise and accelerates the passage from idea to implementation.

Companies are pouring millions into “digital transformation” initiatives — but a high percentage of those fail to pay off. That’s because companies put the cart before the horse, focusing on a specific technology  just by repeating “we need a machine-learning strategy!” rather than doing the hard work of fitting the change into the overall business strategy first.

Successful Digital Transformation

The problem with the term ‘digital transformation’ is that it means different things to different people. Often, leaders believe that digital transformation is driven by technology, and the reasons for implementation are only discussed afterwards. This approach is counterintuitive and often results in failure. To create the conditions for a successful digital transformation, you need to start by identifying your business needs and goals and building a strategy from there.

As digital transformation initiatives are implemented, the day-to-day work of employees undergoes change. Identifying projects that can truly improve the efficiency or productivity of workers (at all levels) is a key element of digital transformation.

The first digital transformation initiative is essential to demonstrate the utility of your strategy and ensure its long-term success. So be sure to take the right steps and the time needed to identify an impactful way to launch your digital transformation projects.

Developing a clear roadmap, including technology for both short and long term initiatives, is a cornerstone of successful digital transformation.

Be sure to strengthen your Essential Skills by looking for partners who complement your strengths and understand your business. To achieve the results of the digital transformation, it is essential to find partners able to accelerate the results and promote initiatives.

One of the hallmarks of any organization embarking on a digital transformation is agility. While it is essential to establish a strategic roadmap, the road to success nonetheless depends on the will and the capacity to adapt according to the results.

Transformation differs from organization to organization, and that’s why the digital transformation strategy is so important. It is a personalized roadmap of the points where change is most effective in your organization.
