Despite the hype, comparatively few businesses are reaping success from digital transformation projects. Darren Birt, Director, at FHL Cloud Solutions shares his views on why these projects are failing and companies should carefully assess their key challenges, before making an investment in new technologies.
Digital transformation has been on the agenda of business leaders and IT departments alike for some time now. And for good reason.

Say the words ‘digital transformation’ and many business leaders will immediately think of the dynamic technologies driving it. But for those companies which embark on digitalisation without considering it within the context of their broader business and, crucially, the people they employ, the chances of failure are high, warns Dr Andy Levers, Executive Director of the Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC), which is part of the University of Liverpool. He sets out the key factors that should inform a digital transformation strategy and explains why small-to-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are uniquely placed to reap its benefits.
As we enter 2020, digital transformation is set to dominate the business agenda for the coming decade and beyond. At the forefront, some of the world’s largest organisations are investing huge amounts of capital into their digitalisation. Thames Water is investing £1 billion over the next five years to digitalise key infrastructure, while Volkswagen recently announced €4 billion to be spent on automation through to 2023.

But when it comes to what we eat, it’s not enough to have a full belly; we need the right sort of food that is both nourishing and tastes good.
