Successful Business Transformation by determining „Digital Readiness“

New Developments in technology such as Big Data or Cloud Computing do not only offer opportunities to optimize business processes, they also make it possible to build new business models. By doing an analysis of a company’s „Digital Readiness“ the respective opportunities and impacts can be identified. It helps companies to recognize the key levers and to prioritize. Due to the variety of developments prioritization and focus is a key success factor.

Everyone is talking about digital transformation or in short “digitalization”. The Federal Government of Germany has picked-up this topic in its high-tech strategy. Before starting the transformation it is important to identify the achievable potential and to evaluate the deriving activities according to the impact on business. The analysis of „digital readiness“ is a useful complement to the portfolio of TCI, which is focusing on providing implementation support in the areas of Business and ICT Transformation as well as Project and Change Management.

There is a trend called „consumerization of IT“, which is important to be understood in this context. It basically means that technological trends in IT and Internet are used first by consumers and then are transferred to business processes (e.g. „bring-your-own-device“, social networks, chats, blogs, …). The drivers of IT innovations move from enterprises to consumers.

There are high expectations towards “digital transformation”, that IT will not only be used in a different way and more effectively. It is rather about designing new digital business models which can be successfully implemented and launched to the market. Take “predictive maintenance” for machines in production as an example: A lot of machine parameters are collected and transferred through a secure channel via the internet. If an application incorporating machine learning algorithms is detecting a state that threatens the machine to break, the maintenance teams can immediately visit the customer site and fix the machine before that happens. This will increase the operation time of machines, and therefore reduce production costs.

There is a prerequisite for successful transformation planning and implementation. This is a procedure that takes a holistic view at the customers’ business, before it identifies the relevant areas of action.

Within the TCI network of consultants we developed an approach to digital transformation which can also be applied as a “quick check”. Beyond the generic topics (vision, mission, targets, SWOT and the competitive environment) we look particularly at the “customer journey” - an important part of a success customer experience management - i.e. the contact points of a customer on its way to select and buy a particular product of a company. From that the relevant potential for a digital transformation can be identified. An ensuing modelling of the company through a capability model and the respective degree of digitalization supports the identification of concrete areas of action.

TCI Facts

We will have to get used to it: The state of change is a permanent condition for companies. The globalization of commodity, financial and information flows, business combinations, demographic change, innovation and the digitization of processes in production, sales, logistics and administration require constant adjustments to strategy, processes and organization. Owners, employees, customers, suppliers and managers must be involved in these changes and implement them. Fundamental changes in the business we call business transformation.

Standstill does not exist and the time window to reflect and experiment becomes shorter and shorter. This means a business transformation projects to be implemented in less time and with established teams. Frequently transformation experience is limited, and rarely in sufficient numbers in their own companies available.

TCI provides you with an experienced consultant, project manager, interim manager or established teams to implement your transformation projects and offers:

Experience have the TCI partners acquired about average 20 years in managerial and executive positions as Managing Director, Senior Vice President, CIO's, senior consultants in the fields of information and communication technology (ICT), plant and machinery, automotive, manufacturing, energy, health, chemical industry, banks and insurance companies.
