If digital transformation is your company’s goal, you are not alone in your quest, as is evident in the amount of money other organizations are spending on the task. It’s estimated by the IDC that by the end of 2019, digital transformation spending will reach almost $1.7 trillion worldwide, which represents a 42% increase from 2017.
As digital transformation involves integrating digital technology into every area of a business, it can be costly. For larger organizations this can mean millions of dollars. There is a lot of fear about waste in this investment for many organizations, but that’s only a valid argument if decisions are rushed and the wrong tools are implemented. There has to be time set aside for researching key factors like integration and honing in on the exact processes that will benefit the digital transformation process as a whole.
With forethought, a strategic plan, and the right equipment, your digital transformation can go smoothly without disrupting your company’s workflow.
While working toward improving daily processes by embracing digital transformation, many organizations discover the path involves a number of unforeseen disruptions. However, according to a survey by Forrester titled “Digital Rewrites the Rules of Business,” advancing through the process is made less disruptive if in the planning phase, you consider more proactive ideas rather than reactive needs.
The disruptions, in many cases, can be related to legacy systems. Forrester found in its survey that nearly 90% of respondents said they had to scale back their digital transformation process because they needed to stay relevant with the Internet of Things (IoT) and with mobile devices, which usually can’t keep up with the processing power of the latest and greatest servers.

For those organizations that meticulously planned their digital transformation, the results were positive. Almost 65% reported that worker productivity improved and compliance issues customers experienced also improved.
