Creating a digital culture
We believe that successful digital businesses understand the far reaching potential of digital empowerment. When we give front line employees technology that helps them collaborate and reshape the way they work we create a virtuous cycle of innovation and improvement.
Today’s business talent is increasingly provided by digital natives who expect to be able to shape technology to their needs. Yet enterprise IT frequently disables, locking people into old ways of working and reflecting disconnected organisational structures that block collaboration and frustrate good ideas because they won’t fit or cost too much to implement.
Today there is a rapidly growing gap between businesses’ appetite for digital change and the resources available to enterprise IT. Swamped by legacy systems, siloed data and locked-down budgets CIOs are often forced to maintain the integrity of the company’s traditional information systems at the expense of meeting its digital needs. This drives many business people to adopt ‘shadow IT’ such as spreadsheets, ‘quick and dirty’ application development or third-party cloud services. While such shadow IT creates huge potential security and scalability headaches it’s hard to stop without offering an alternative.
Empowering a transformation
Empowering people to build solutions using a shared digital platform ultimately turns IT into a support structure for a whole new category of innovation. CIOs can allow innovation to happen anywhere before co-opting successful ideas for onward development and integration by IT. In this way digital evolution happens rapidly and dynamically, with many small improvements driving deeper transformation as they ripple through to core processes and systems. Over time, many small, low risk changes aggregate into a wider transformation, fuelled by a new digital culture where everyone is empowered to start a revolution.
