Digital transformation takesMicrosoft’s General Manager of Manufacturing Çağlayan Arkan and Schneider Electric’s EVP of IoT & Digital Offers Cyril Perducat provide insights into the benefits companies can realise by accelerating their digital transformation journey. They discuss how cycles in the digital age are more compressed and require trying different things in rapid succession. A digital transformation strategy has to think big, start small and go fast, a process of developing the winners and moving on quickly from the failures. The emphasis is often placed on technology, but disruptive innovation is a product of information and culture. The challenge can be met with the right leadership and people.

Foster your customer-centric innovationThe driver behind this digital reboot is the customer. No longer can any company build technology in a vacuum; instead, it must leverage technology advancements (e.g., IoT, AI, cloud, sensing, mobility) to advance customer-centric innovation and R&D.

“In short, you’re cultivating a culture of empowerment to accelerate your company’s digital transformation, led by your group’s digital evangelists who are motivated to seize the art of possibility.”
Best practices for enterprise digital transformationThe digital transformation journey is taken by people, not by organisations. Communicate your digital strategy throughout your company. Empower and inspire your employees with digital on-boarding, training, and support. Reduce unnecessary apps and give digital employees a chance to adapt to new work efficiency tools. Allow time for a culture to develop and a true digital transformation journey will unfold.
