How to Structure an Effective Digital Transformation Plan

Feb 24, 2023

Even with some of the right pieces in place, the idea of implementing an effective digital transformation plan can be a little overwhelming with so many other important issues going on in a growing organization. But this step shouldn’t be overlooked. In my first blog, I addressed the urgent need for organizations to update their IT systems. I followed it with an explanation of other elements needed to get you there, such as communication and training. 

You don’t have to go it alone, and probably shouldn’t. An experienced Managed Service Provider with a solid track record across industries will be able to inform you of the requirements that will inform what data and processes should be transformed and how that will happen. You’ll get help: 

  1. Conducting tests of key processes and integrations 
  2. Establishing which processes and procedures will be automated 
  3. Outlining a comprehensive plan  
  4. Identifying your rollout schedule  

Technology & Communication Are Both Part of Your Plan  

Keep in mind that transforming and updating your IT is an investment in the future of your organization. The right partner will be instrumental in clarifying what solutions will bring you the most ROI based on key performance indicators (KPIs). And those solutions can take many forms.  

A digital transformation will likely also necessitate a communication campaign to promote the principles behind your new digital culture while revealing new technologies in the form of training and workshops to help inculcate cultural changes. Projects or pilot programs can explore new work methods and business processes, such as remote working or more agile business procedures. 

Make Use of IT Maturity Model 

To ensure your plan is on the right track, it’s always vital to first identify what’s working and what isn’t in your organization. That’s where an IT Maturity Model comes into play. When faced with evolving cybersecurity threats, your IT will need the ability to keep up and make adjustments in real time. An MSP can provide a team of experts to help you set in place a plan that addresses a whole range of needs:  

  • Investments  
  • Compliance activities  
  • IT impacts on hiring and personnel  
  • Tech support needs  

A discovery process is central to understanding what requirements apply and how they align with the maturity model. This includes potential remediation of any issues that arise due to outdated IT systems. Part of the plan will include continuous training of end users and customers, for instance, to understand how to use a self-service portal and other elements of your new system. 

At DYOPATH, our team of experts is ready to handle all of these steps, from assessing your system to providing the most appropriate service package and assisting with organizational training. Schedule a meeting with a specialist today to find out what a digital transformation plan means for you.
