At Calls9, we see digital transformation as the rethinking of how organisations use digital technology, people and processes to transform the way they operate and how they create value for their employees and customers. Driven by increased competition, shifting customer expectations, new working patterns and disruptive technology, most organisations pursue digital transformation initiatives to enable new business models and revenue streams, better ways of working and improved customer experiences. Organisations also use digital technology and processes to develop new, disruptive digital-first or hybrid digital/physical products and services or improve their existing ones.
It is a collaborative process between senior leadership and business departments to effectively blend business-focused approaches and experience with new digital technologies and streamlined processes.
