The term “digital transformation” has emerged as a technology buzz word in the past couple years, particularly in the realm of enterprise software development. But what is digital transformation as a service, exactly?
As a top Dallas custom software development company, 7T specializes in digital transformation for companies and organizations in a wide variety of different business sectors, so it’s a question that we’ve received on many occasions. Let’s examine the definition of digital transformation and what’s entailed with digital transformation as a service offering.
What is Digital Transformation?
Digital transformation refers to the use of modern digital technologies to improve a company’s operations in significant and sometimes remarkable ways. These digital transformation projects usually bring one or more of the following benefits:
- Improving convenience / speed of a task or process;
- Simplifying and even automating processes;
- Allowing companies to offer new products and services;
- Integrating or consolidating software / platforms; and
- Increasing revenue and profits.
Additionally, companies are often empowered in a way that allows them to offer new or expanded services as efficiency and capabilities improve as a direct result of a digital transformation project.
What is Digital Transformation as a Service?
Companies that offer digital transformation as a service typically focus on using technology to solve problems. That’s our approach here at 7T, as we seek to identify inefficiencies and challenges; then, we’ll build a mobile app, enterprise software solution, cloud platform or other technology to serve as a complete solution.
Identifying the precise nature of “the problem” is critical when offering digital transformation as a service. Our team works directly with the client to answer questions that go beyond the typical enquiries such as “what features and functionalities would you like to include in your enterprise software platform?” We take a more comprehensive approach, exploring questions such as:
- Who is involved in the less-than-efficient processes?
- What is the objective of these processes?
- What are the root causes of the inefficiencies?
- What software / technology is currently in use?
- What obstacles do you expect to encounter when building or implementing a custom digital transformation solution?
Unlike many enterprise software development companies, members of 7T’s leadership team will perform on-site visits to gain a full and complete understanding of the client’s operations. This allows for a deeper understanding of the dynamics within the business; dynamics that may otherwise go unrealized and/or unreported by the individuals who reached out to initiate the digital transformation process.
Once our team has a firm grasp of the client’s situation, we set out to identify the best technologies to meet the client’s needs both today and in the future. True digital transformation entails the development of technologies that are scalable, allowing for growth and evolution in the coming months and years.
As the name implies, well-executed digital transformation as a service offerings can be truly transformative since they tend to be multi-faceted technologies. For instance, a digital transformation project may entail the development of an enterprise CRM platform with a companion mobile app and cloud-based data infrastructure.
