Digital Transformation Training Solutions from New Horizons

Digital Transformation is the application of digital technologies to improve the performance or reach of a business, and it will continue to be an important topic for companies across the globe. Executives in all industries are using digital advances, such as data analytics, mobility, social media, and smart embedded devices (IoT) to change customer relationships, internal processes, and value propositions.

What Skills are Necessary for Digital Transformation?

A 2015 study, "Skills for Digital Transformation" carried out by SAP and the Technical University of Munich, revealed that gaps in cross-functional knowledge may become a major obstacle for digital transformation.

Of those companies that responded to the survey, 83% stated that they are lacking the required skills to drive a successful transformation. In addition, 72% said that their business executives are lacking the technology skills necessary to enable it.

Below are key areas in which to consider implementing formal training across your organization in order to help your business truly embrace and leverage Digital Transformation.

Big data allows companies to make meaningful, strategic adjustments that minimize costs and maximize results. If you know what consumers and employees are doing currently, you can create projections for what they will do in the future, and start implementing changes to address their needs and your goals. A digital transformation isn’t complete unless a business adopts big data.

What are the Benefits of Digital Transformation?

Digital transformation can and in some cases has fundamentally changed how businesses operate and how they deliver value to customers. There are a number of reasons that a business may undergo digital transformation, but by far, the most likely reason is that they have to in order to survive. 

Recent studies back this up time and time again: The IDC report “FutureScape: Worldwide CIO Agenda 2016 Predictions” emphasized that, "One-third of the top 20 firms in industry segments will be disrupted by new competitors within five years," and that it's a matter of "transform or perish."
