Mapping from current state to destination
Step four of the digital transformation cycle
After refining your digital destination after exploring the implications of current technology, you can now begin to chart a course for your digital transformation. This roadmap needs to consist of considered, defined stages that your business can realistically achieve. Where possible, these steps should be tied to SMART targets agreed by the team delivering the project.
In addition to defining stages based on the redeployment of existing systems, investment in new technologies or reimagining of existing processes, you should also map out specific steps for managing new assets, such as industrial data. Defining a data strategy can help accelerate overall digital transformation, as well as make future transformation cycles much more streamlined and efficient.
