Digital transformation can be broadly defined as the practice of applying new digital technologies to deliver business improvements. This can include the transformation of work processes through technology, artificial intelligence to replace human intervention and analytics to make more precise decisions.
A common finding when exploring digital transformation is that digital architects are often found between inadequate tech and idealistic expectations. “As digital transformation moves from plans to reality, architects have the crucial role of ensuring that business ambitions can be realised,” says Ravi Mayuram. These digital experts have the responsibility to evaluate and recommend the most appropriate tech to fulfil ambitions and future proof the technology choices. They need to explore newly developed technologies that challenge the market and integrate into modern plans so that businesses can transform – however 80% of experts have had to reign in their ideas because of the data challenges that have presented themselves.
