Challenges for adopting Digital Transformation
To drive digital transformation, an organization needs to make an investment in acquiring the right technology and the right digital experience team to execute it. Thus, the whole process requires a good amount of capital, which may initially lead to lower profits, but in the long run, this investment will become one of the primary reasons for your business’s success.
Recommendations: To overcome these challenges, companies need to create a comprehensive financial strategy while planning to implement any digital solutions. They also need to calculate long-term benefits and ROI before approaching the project.
Due to this lack of clarity on budget, the decision-making process becomes difficult and forces leaders to rethink their digital transformation funding strategy.

3. Reluctant to adopt new tools and technologies
There are three C's which keep companies from implementing new technology - Change, Cost, and Culture.
Few people love change and few don’t. People are afraid of new changes.
So, it’s no wonder that most organizations/teams will encounter people who are slow to change or just plain resist it. Even when management clearly sees the benefits of technology, they may also be concerned about alienating certain groups of employees.
Adopting new technology can sometimes be costly and require some level of skill to implement. They also need to calculate long-term benefits and ROI before approaching the project.
A typical team consists of engineers, designers, and workers with degrees and education at all levels. Yet, the “we’ve always done it this way” culture persists in doing things the same way putting any business at risk. Instead, companies embrace a culture of
change in order to maximize their potential.
4. Lack of awareness about Digital Transformation & its benefits
Before initiating the process of digitally transforming your business, one must understand and identify the exact business goal. Companies are absolutely aware of the innovation and what it can bring to their business but are very reluctant to change. Why?
- Lack of Expertise - To make your digital transformation process successful, you do not need people who are pros in technologies but you just need external experts who can support you and provide you guidance on it.
- Internal Resistance - Sometimes upper management/team is reluctant to change because they think there are risks involved in it. However, the risk of not going digital is higher than the risk of failure today. Everybody is adopting this change to improve their current process and systems which will ultimately give you higher profits and revenue for the company and keep up with your competitors as well.
