More and more, companies are looking to develop a digital strategy as a way to transform their organization. But with the fast-changing nature of technology, digital transformation is not a single, one-time project that can be completed instantaneously. But rather, it’s a long-term evaluation of organizational, technological, and operational approaches to change the way you do business. And a central feature of the digital age is the customer experience. Developing a digital strategy enables your customers to:
- Function more effectively and efficiently
- Reduce costs and increase productivity
- Utilize new digital technology as a competitive advantage
- Build new business models
So what should IT leaders focus on? According to IDC, digital transformation will shape the future, and the biggest issues will center on business needs. More specifically, IDC predicts that by the end of 2017:
- 2/3 of the CEO’s of Global 2000 Enterprises will have digitization or digital transformation at the center of their corporate strategies
- 60% of digital transformation initiatives will not be able to scale because of a lack of strategic architecture
Speed and Simplicity to Meet Growing Demands
The amount of data being generated by connected devices is growing exponentially and is pushing most existing networks to their limits. Cisco’s Digital Ready Network not only addresses the need for more bandwidth and bigger pipes, but also uses analytics and automation to ensure that the network is leveraging the data with optimal efficiency. With this architecture, business and IT can become far more nimble and respond to business conditions quicker and more intelligently.
