The pace of technological evolution is astounding, and for many organizations it can be challenging to keep up with the constant changes. However, for a successful digital transformation to occur, embracing new technology is critical. Part of the transformation must also include rethinking your processes, because a successful transitions is about more than just hardware and software.
Maintaining or improving security during a digital transformation requires first examining your current processes. Without a well-rounded picture of how your IT services operate, you won’t have a very good handle on how to proceed.
For example, your data is likely moving to the cloud at a rapid rate, which means your IT infrastructure is becoming more complex. You need to be able to see into those complexities so there are no surprises and complications with implementation.
Many enterprises are entrenched in the Internet of Things (IoT) as employees increasingly are bringing in endpoint machines and mobile devices. You have to know all the pieces of the puzzle that are connected to your system if security is going to be improved or maintained through a digital transformation. You then need to make the necessary adjustments in your security strategy to protect your data as you move forward.
Know Your Goals
If you haven’t already embraced automation in one form or another, the digital transformation will familiarize you with it. Integrating automation comes with a lot of planning and prioritizing, because the type of automation you bring in should be teamed with the right environments and applications.
It’s not just the chief information officer that is in charge of this process. Representatives from throughout the organization need to take the lead and assist in getting everyone on board. This brings greater visibility and sets the tone for establishing the goals you want to achieve.
The best cloud strategy for your organization must also be considered. If your goal is to remain adaptable and scalable, you have to have the right IT architecture, and that will involve key cloud solutions.
