How does your digital transformation effort stack up?
State of information: are businesses digitally transforming or stuck in neutral?
Digital transformation isn’t just about knowing where you want to end up — it’s about knowing how you’ll get there and which tools you’ll need to move together as a team towards that destination.
Most businesses today are looking to handle the different aspects of their digital transformation — and while a few have already charged ahead to light the way, many others are just starting out. No matter where you are along the path, there are a few common factors IT leaders are taking into consideration. So what does digital transformation really take?
The five key elements of a holistic digital transformation strategy
From creation to disposition and everything in between
Content creation today requires collaboration between multiple participants across the organization — making a secure, single source collaboration environment a prerequisite to innovation.

Digital transformation requires an infrastructure to be flexible enough to meet the needs of both your users and your business — while considering the entirety of the information ecosystem and its users.

Cloud is gaining traction in the enterprise
Whether or not organisations have fully embraced new tools like cloud and mobile, their employees are likely already using them — which means that managing risk may require greater IT flexibility and more user-centric policies.
A strong plan for governance leads to better digital transformation outcomes
Forward-thinking organisations are taking a strategic approach to information governance, taking control of disorder before it grows unmanageable and turning to cloud applications to expand their reach.
