    Digitalisation is a top priority but efforts are stalling

    Eighty-seven per cent of senior business leaders say digitalisation is a company priority, yet only 40% of organisations have brought digital initiatives to scale. The gap between aspiration and achievement is widening for enterprises attempting digital business transformation. Without a shared vision across the organisation, digital transformation efforts will continue to stall. 

    40% of organisations have reached scale for their digital initiatives.
    91% of organisations are engaged in some form of digital initiative.

    Define a digital ambition for business transformation

    Most organisations are doing digital projects, but this does not mean they are a digital business. Organisations must first determine the right mix between digital optimisation and transformation. This can change over time, but a clearly defined digital ambition provides direction and focus for the work ahead.

    Insights you can use

    Gartner’s insights, advice and tools help CIOs and their teams reboot strategic planning processes and develop an approach to digital business that helps enterprises achieve their digital ambition.

    Build a digital strategy

    Strategy is critical to succeed in digital business, but most organisations are not very effective at creating it. Gartner can help you build and communicate a strategy that will help you contribute to your organisation's digital business success. 

    Master the art of transformation

    Leading organisations focus on three key areas to accelerate transformation — a clear endgame, principles to guide behaviour, and culture hacks to make change real. Gartner can help you accelerate your transformation with these key ingredients and avoid transformation fatigue.

    Define and measure success

    As organisations start their digital business journey, it is important to measure progress and the business value it creates. Gartner can help you set the right metrics and goals for your digital business transformation and sharpen expected business outcomes.
