Achieving Integration with a DX Strategy

Digitalisation is growing in importance for companies of all sizes, in all industries. Slowly but surely, businesses are choosing best-of-breed technology to make each process digital. That’s been accelerated for some with the unusual circumstances since the start of 2020. Whatever the case, the result is more applications at work than ever before.

But are they working together? In most cases, companies have a combination of legacy and cutting-edge systems, with everything in-between. There’s sometimes a duplication in the mix. What they don’t have is true integration.

The question is: how do they get the most out of their existing technology while updating it for the 21st century, all without compromising on user experience? That’s what we’ll be exploring.

97% of organisations are currently planning or undertaking digital transformation

900 apps are used, on average, by each global organisation

71% of apps in the same organisation aren’t integrated

Digitise or die?

Gartner sighted in a recent report that every single industry ranks ‘digital business’ as one of their top 10 objectives. While we’re not at the point of digitise or die just yet, recent events have highlighted the importance of a flexible digital setup. With a digital transformation strategy moving forward, IT leaders need to decide how quickly integrations should happen, depending on the sector, competition, and customers. But most important of all is the organisation’s capacity for change.

Naturally, companies want to make the changes because of the benefits to their workforce and customers. But with so many technologies, processes, departments, and people involved in a transformation, a hasty overhaul will likely lead to a lack of integration and a negative impact on the way people work.

As time goes on, this will become even more pivotal. Companies of the future will not just be digital. They will innovate beyond customer expectations with integration across technologies and across countries.

A cultural journey

While many companies had to adapt quickly to the disruption caused by the pandemic, digital transformation isn’t an overnight project. It’s an ongoing cultural journey that impacts everyone. To make it work, businesses need to engage every branch, department, and team in their strategy. Every single employee needs to buy-in to the adoption and IT teams need to put those employees at the heart of the decisions they make. But most importantly, it needs to be integrated across the board.

Our holistic approach extends from the applications and technologies you use to the procurement, contracts, pricing and support you require.
