The right strategy for digital transformational change

ticker ORIGINALS No Comments

COVID-19 has accelerated digital transformation change by several years, especially in Australia where the digital economy continues to flourish. Digital solutions that would have taken years to implement, here adopted in a matter of days in order to manage the new challenges brought on by the pandemic, such as remote working.

But are businesses prepared for the ongoing, rapid change and disruption slated for the future?

“The strategic posture of digital services or new technologies has changed significantly,” Lionel Legros, VP-General Manager, APAC, OVHcloud reveals to TickerNews. “Several years ago, the most important element of a digital project was to scale down the cost.”

“It was the first criteria for business leaders.”

“But in the last two years, it has been critical for a company to move fast and react, in order to stay competitive, and with better technological capabilities.”

“What we see now is that organisations need desperately to fill the gap, to be sure that all the technologies implemented throughout this disruptive period have been secured at the right cost.”

A digital strategy that does not align with a business’s objectives will ultimately lead to loopholes, such as increased hidden costs, limitations on scale, or even an increased skill gap between employees.

Legros says there are now three main factors that need to be considered when choosing a digital service – digital strategy cost, security, and compliance.

“We want to be sure that all organisations, no matter their size, are in control of the cost of their digital strategy,” he continues. “And it must fit perfectly with their ever-changing business model.”

“In terms of security, we must be sure that the digital services being delivered are secure and reliable.”

“Infrastructures must be resilient, with a stable backup in place and prominent, because the cloud is not magic.”

“And finally, you need to comply with the regulations of the markets in which you operate,” Legros concludes.

It is critical that organisations assess the best cloud provider according to their business model, including the price predictability and long-term effectiveness of digital projects implemented in the last two years.
