At Broadcom Software, we realize the pandemic changed the way the world works. And across the globe, enterprises are transforming their organizations to keep pace. A McKinsey survey reports that nearly 85 percent of executives say their organizations have accelerated their digital initiatives since March, 2020.
By now, it’s almost a cliché to repeat the benefits to the enterprise of business transformation: increased agility, improved productivity, data-driven insights, and enhanced customer experience are just a few that spring easily to mind.
But challenges abound.
As necessary as it is, digital transformation is both complex and difficult. An oft-quoted Harvard Business Review study concluded that as much as 60-70 percent of all change initiatives fail for one reason or another. The fact is that change is difficult for any organization. A recent Gartner report highlights that more than 70 percent of change-affected employees suffer higher stress levels and that five percent perform poorly as a result. Major software lifts only exacerbate these challenges.
There is always an element of doubt or uncertainty when doing a major software implementation or upgrade to meet business objectives. That uncertainty only grows for enterprises considering large-scale business transformation.
A considerable problem is the lack of staffing and technical or program management expertise. The Great Resignation has led to a personnel gap in the necessary expertise and in-the-trenches experience that is needed, even if only for a short time, for a software implementation, upgrade or large business transformation. Indeed, a 2022 survey of IT leaders confirms that the lack of skill sets and talent on staff is the top barrier towards achieving their enterprise’s digital transformation goals.
A second challenge is simply the need to keep pace with technology to remain competitive. Expertise and real-world experience are essential for organizations doing software implementations to maximize the value in their technology investments. Experience and expertise that is vitally necessary to help enterprises avoid all the pitfalls and valleys where they can stumble in what is always a complex process. Just as important is ability to look over the horizon at new technology and balance the tried and true against potential game changing technology to garner the best results without being on the bleeding edge. You must assess the risk and potential reward of technology adoption within the chasm of technology that is constantly changing.
