At what level is your technical environment?
Today, all organisations rely on some form of basic IT to cover their operational requirements. However, many lag behind with regard to their technical environment and are therefore unable to begin the digitalisation of areas such as business processes. Many begin the journey in search of new working methods without first assessing the state of their current technology. This oversight often results in delays to projects while awaiting the technical transformation necessary to provide commercial benefits.
Normally, this is a matter of moving towards a more cloud-based technical platform, such as IaaS, PaaS and, to a certain extent, even SaaS. However, it might equally involve upgrading systems so that they can be integrated with these platforms. This technical transformation sets the boundaries for the achievable level of business effect!
If your technical transformation is also part of a change in sourcing, please learn more under Sourcing Management, where Technical Transformation is also packaged.
