Stage 1

Clear vision and strategy

Aligning with your organisation’s overall vision, goals and long-term plan

Why do I need a clear vision and strategy?

All organisations have likely embarked on their digital transformation in some way, to varying degrees of success. Despite this, there's still much confusion around what digital transformation is, and whether they really need to invest in it.​

At the core, digital transformation is about finding the best way to leverage technology to deliver operational efficiencies for your staff and superior services for your customers. Ultimately, it is an insurance policy against your organisation becoming digitally irrelevant.​

In short, digital transformation is an imperative. Without it, organisations risk becoming stagnant and unable to adapt to increasing customer demands.​

Digital transformation will ensure that you can continue to deliver critical services now and in the future, within the fiscal, technological and resourcing restrictions every organisation faces.​

But not every digital transformation strategy is made equal. Its success hangs on having a clear vision and strategy, from the outset. The strategy needs to be linked to your organisation’s overall vision, goals and long-term plan, which means having executive buy-in and sponsors.


The five stages of digital transformation

Prepare, enact and realise your organisation’s digital transformation journey.

Where do I start?

Successful digital transformation is about more than just the technology: it will transform your people, culture and services as well. But the key is to start with strong foundational technology that will allow you to adapt and evolve to customer needs.

For many organisations, integrated Software as a Service (SaaS) ERP solutions are an attractive option for digital transformation — because it reduces the number of systems, simplifies the user interface and experience, removes all the different silos of data, and minimises complex integration.​

By simplifying your digital core, your organisation will be more agile and able to take advantage of technological trends to deliver a better customer experience.

Why SaaS?

Software as a Service will enable your business transformation, by moving staff from administrative, back-office activities to become more customer centric. A fully integrated SaaS ERP solution lets IT teams focus on the delivery of better services and outcomes, rather than trying to ensure the data from one system gets transferred to another.​

This uniquely repositions staff as a conduit for bringing innovation into the organisation to solve problems and improve services.​

SaaS also ensures higher levels of service. The availability of systems that underpin your digital transformation need to be highly available, reliable, safe and secure.
