When many people talk about digital transformation, they focus on technology as opposed to business. They get excited about leveraging digital solutions but not about establishing, measuring and realising their business value. The same error that caused so much financial loss and painful projects throughout the ERP era.
So what drives digital transformation … technology or strategy?
An MIT paper has declared very clearly that strategy, not technology, drives digital transformation and the sooner technology blinkered managers and leaders realise this, the sooner they can engage the right blend of innovation, technical and business transformation capabilities to undertake successful digital enterprise transformation.
