Align Your Digital Platform with Your Vision
The way you do business online and the technology that supports this change over time. The original rationale to set up your digital platform the way it is now may no longer fully apply. This leads to frustration and concerns that your current platform may no longer be well-positioned to get you ahead in the next digital era.
Should You Stay or Should You Go?
Before considering wholesale change, it’s important to take stock. It could be that the core components of the platform are suitable, but that their implementation has become a square peg in a round hole.
It’s crucial to establish the root cause for frustrations and concerns. Is it in the platform components themselves? Or the way they are managed? Or perhaps it’s the way they are implemented and used? It can be hard to find objective answers to these questions.
Key knowledge and expertise may have left your organization or your solutions partners. You may not trust in your vendor’s or partner’s abilities to provide a balanced assessment. All this can leave you struggling to understand where the issues really lie.
Look Before You Leap
Sometimes it’s more simple: Components in your platform no longer align with your vision. You only use half the features, or the vendor is not rolling out updates with the improvements you want. It’s hard to recruit people with the right skillset and turnover in your teams is causing disruption. Upgrades are a headache, dragging on for months and requiring expensive specialists.
You may have a good idea of what you need or you might be wondering where to begin. Either way, a lot is at stake when migrating components in your platform or embarking on a full transformation, so it’s important to make an objective and detailed evaluation of your options.
You need to be able to cut through the buzzwords and hype to understand what really matters to you: How different vendors and architectures will enable you to achieve your business objectives in a sustainable way, ensuring that things that work well now will continue to do so.
Sync or Sink
Knowing where you want to go is one thing, but working out how to get there can seem a daunting task. It’s important to ensure global and regional stakeholders are aligned across departments, from IT to marketing to compliance.
You also need a plan that quickly demonstrates results but is also considerate of the impact of change to your organization and does not disrupt your digital operations.
Implementing new components may well require different skills than what you have in-house and successful transformation depends on an active understanding of what you are replacing, not just the future vision.
