As the digital transformation progresses, companies of all types of sectors and sizes begin to deploy and start using new technologies. But despite the rush that many have to modernize and update their processes, the majority of technology-related companies and projects is it so having difficulty justifying the investment they are making to transform. This is reflected in a report from the consultancy Dae.mn (formerly Daemon Solutions), specialized in technology.
The consultancy has conducted a survey among 200 professionals in charge of decision-makers related to technology in various sectors, with which it was clear that data analytics, cloud services and DevOps in particular are being adopted at a very rapid pace between the companies. In addition, 94% of those surveyed said that the speed of digital transformation in their companies had grown over the past year.
But despite the good news, the majority of respondents are having difficulty in their companies demonstrating the impact digital transformation is having on them, despite 92% believing that “demonstrate the business value of technology services»Is one of the main priorities you have set. In addition, of those who answered that they believe they have fully implemented their digital transformation strategy, only 20% are from departments other than IT.
According Calum Fitzgerald, one of the founders of this consultancy, «This data comes at a time when companies rely more on technology to optimize operations, as a differential point, or even if it is only to function at a more basic level than before. As a result, proving ROI has never been more important, but it is clearly proving complicated. If decision makers outside of IT are having a hard time seeing the impact the investment is having, especially when technology plays a decisive role, it could be due to internal communication.«.
For Fitzgerald, the solution lies in ensuring that business objectives are measurable on the one hand, and on the other, that there is agreement on them before implementing them. In addition, he believes that it is imperative that leadership maintains visibility on digital transformation throughout the company, and that all changes are communicated in a language that everyone can understand.
