Most business leaders by this point know that transforming their digital infrastructure is a necessity to survive today; it’s no longer an optional extra. At the same time, any digital transformation journey will present many challenges for even the most established company.

You know that you need to digitise your business, but you don’t want to damage the smooth flow of your operations. 70% to 95% of digital transformation efforts fail after all, so what’s the harm in waiting a little longer?

Business leaders can’t let statistics and the uncertainty of what challenges might be faced stop their digital transformation efforts. Although failure is a factor, this only happens to businesses who go in blind, don’t do their research, and aren’t ready to face the main challenges with the right partner.

Digital transformation, the importance of choosing the right IT partner

Digital transformation challenges

There’s no shortage of challenges that can be faced by businesses looking to transform, but they can be broadly categorised into four areas:

  • Cost reduction: One of the primary goals of digital transformation is to optimise costs by streamlining operations, eliminating inefficiencies, and automating processes. However, implementing new technologies and systems often incurs initial high costs, requiring a delicate balance between investment and eventual savings.
  • Process efficiencies: Transforming existing processes into more efficient, agile, and responsive models is a significant challenge. Resistance to change, legacy systems integration, and ensuring seamless adoption across all levels of the organization can impede progress.
  • Revenue generation: While digital transformation opens new revenue streams through innovative products, services, or enhanced customer experiences, monetising these opportunities can be challenging. Understanding market demands, and consumer behaviour, and having the ability to adapt to changing trends are crucial.
  • Risk avoidance: Cybersecurity threats, data breaches, and compliance issues are heightened during digital transformation. Integrating new technologies often brings security vulnerabilities, necessitating robust risk management strategies and compliance frameworks to protect sensitive information.

Why the right partner matters

Any business can eventually drive tech-enabled change, even if their first few attempts were unsuccessful.
