The old rules no longer apply. Digital technologies have radically transformed the business landscape, yet many organizations have completely ignored this reality. A new survey of IT decision makers found 96% see digital transformation as important or critical, yet 55% say they have one year or less to respond before they financially suffer. By failing to prepare for new technologies, devices and systems, organizations have threatened their own survival.

The Digital Ultimatum, is your first step towards building a future-proof organization that optimizes the customer experience and routinely achieves organizational excellence."
What this case study reveals is that, with the right leadership, it is possible to turn a company around and make it far more responsive and relevant to its customers, and as a result deliver growth and profits.
The upshot of D+M's cultural and business transformation has been a return to growth and profitability. The entire enterprise has played its part, which is why the annual Chairman's Award has recognized individuals who have lived the winning cultural values and achieved excellence in performance. Winners have included factory workers and services people. The firm also continues to innovate with HEOS WMS capabilities extending to the other brands. Customer experience continues to be an area of deep cross-functional focus, and feedback from customers provides a clear indication that the customer experience throughout their buying and ownership journeys is rated highly.
The past five years have marked the beginning of the “Age of the Customer,” in which technology and economic forces have put customers in control of their interactions with businesses.
These businesses, hoping to understand and serve customers in a global and digital economy, are almost universally undergoing digital transformation, which involves realigning and investing in new technology and business models with a specific focus on the customer experience.

The shift to SaaS is gaining momentum and there are clear business benefits that can be derived. To optimise success, transformation strategies need to encompass all elements of people, processes, technology and organisational design. Adopting SaaS technologies drives significant change to the way organisations operate – from business processes to support model design and company culture. The implications of cloud adoption and technical challenges such as integrations, data migration and configuration must be fully understood and addressed from the outset.
Artifi cial intelligence is becoming a key component of business transformation. Virtually any business leader seeking to unlock value and develop new capabilities using technology is at some stage of the AI journey. For example, those at the leading edge have incorporated machine learning insights into business processes and are building functionality such as natural language processing and preventative maintenance diagnostics into their products. Others are experimenting with pilot projects or developing plans to get started.
Digital transformation has become a popular theme across enterprises. However, companies are confronted with several challenges. In a survey done recently, two-thirds of IT investments by Japanese companies were about "running-the-business", and a very small sum was focussed on business innovation and growth.
What are the processes that an organization should create to promote digital transformation? What are the challenges?

This paper explores:
• Insights on challenges faced by Australian ITDMs when rolling out cloud projects
• The role of the ITDM today
• Key blockages IT stakeholders encounter when driving digital change, and;
• What they need from the business and wider technology ecosystem to navigate the risks associated with starting a cloud project or moving to a full cloud-first model.

IT organizations are aggressively defining digital workspace strategies to deliver the agility and user-centric experience their businesses demand. The technology behind a digital workspace is impressive, but it’s important not to lose sight that this approach is a dramatic transformation. Like any major transformation, it requires careful consideration and a well-planned strategy.
This whitepaper highlights the key considerations for moving to a digital workspace.
The digital economy is dramatically changing how consumers shop and interact with businesses.
They expect a fast, convenient and highly secure digital experience. With the average company lifespan decreasing rapidly, merchants have to operate as a true digital enterprise to stay competitive and to stay in business.
Payment and fraud management is no longer a back-office utility. It is a prime differentiator, critical to achieving competitive advantage, improving customer experience and reducing risk. Digital transformation is not simply a market buzz word. It is real. And those who don’t embrace it are in a position to lose. By 2020, eCommerce sales as a percentage of retail sales are forecast to be 12.4% compared to 8.0% in 2016, according to eMarketer. And engaging customers digitally across channels remains a top digital initiative. While there are several drivers of growth in the digital economy, none are more significant than the force of mobile and cloud technologies. Innovation
A framework for business-IT collaboration
Despite often massive investment, many digital transformation efforts fail. Why? One of the biggest culprits is business and IT leaders viewing digital transformation as a pure technology play—e.g. the flawed mindset that you can just plug in a new app, solution or system and let it run.
KPMG’s approach to Technology Strategy and Selection (TSS) helps companies take full advantage of emerging technologies by aligning the technology strategy with the future aspirations of the business. Learn how KPMG helps business and IT leaders join together to strategically choose, implement and leverage technology to enjoy their full benefits.
A modular, holistic approach to change
Digital disruption is forcing companies to fundamentally rethink how they compete. You probably used to solve this challenge by buying better technology. But in today’s complex, fast-changing business world, that single-minded approach is destined for failure.
KPMG’s Technology Strategy and Selection (TSS) framework is a modular, holistic approach that drives lasting, long-term value from technology change. This article walks through the four key phases of the leading edge framework—creating a transformation vision, blueprinting the future organization, selecting the supporting technology, and implementing the new tools.

stores. Access without delay or interruption, 24/7, is the new normal. If they can’t get what they want, when
