As we emerge from the lockdown with light at the end of the tunnel, how will your digital transformation agenda change?
Digital Transformation is a critical business priority for many organisations. Investment into digital transformation will ensure that you can adapt and thrive through future challenges, no matter how disruptive they may be.
It has never been more important for businesses to ensure their IT is up to standard; secure, reliable and flexible enough to cope with whatever the future holds. In order to stay ahead of huge shifts in technology, businesses are exploring how digital transformation could improve every aspect of their operations and customer experience.
It's not a simple or one-size-fits-all process - Zachsys can work with your organisation to provide the IT that delivers your digital transformation priorities and allows your business to stay competitive and secure in a new and shifting IT landscape.
Virtualise the Core
Key to a flexible, reliable infrastructure is scalable core
This ensures cost optimisation, performance and reliability
A virtualised core reduces risk and dependency on physical access at specific location and facility
Virtualisation greatly speeds up innovation and access to new technologies
Mobilise the Workforce
Your workplace is now the home, a cafe, a train or customer premises as lockdown relaxes
It’s the virtual meeting point of colleagues, project teams, business units, suppliers & customers
Location or device should not be a constraint
End-users want their application functionality and data brought together at the point of use securely and responsively in a seamless usable experience
Mobilising the workforce is about technology underpinning and enhancing a strong people culture
Connect to Collaborate
Connecting to collaborate is about combining your organisation’s culture, process with compelling technology change and adoption
Lockdown has made most ex-office workers literate in conferencing, but it has also highlighted the need for performance and reliability to deliver a good user experience.
Users need access to their data & apps wherever they are. They need: tools to collaborate, communicate and share, a great user experience and reliable connection and finally, bandwidth to collaborate effectively with rich content.
Secure the Workspace
Users expect secure access wherever they are – on an organisation’s network or on a shared network in a café or train
Security should be integrated with minimal intervention on the user experience and reliance on individuals to comply
The virtual perimeter of their workspace should be protected from the VM in the cloud, over a public network through to the point of use in a customer board room, factory floor or a home office
Today’s challenging threat environment means security and privacy have become differentiating characteristics of good business
Increasingly, security must be demonstrable in order to comply with external regulatory standards
How to get there
Approaches to Digital Transformation vary by organisation. Structurally, some set up new businesses or separate business units to remove legacy blockers; some ‘bite the bullet’ and re-structure a long-established function, and some use a major change – new market, product or strategy as the catalyst for a profound digitally-driven organisational change.
Regardless of the approach, key to the success of your digital transformation project are four key stages of you roadmap:
