Deep Digital Transformation : What is it ?
Many large companies face to a lot of challenges in implementing digital transformation programs capable of impacting all of their internal operations, customer relationships, and supply chain management. Indeed, market solutions are struggling to cover all their needs and are often considered as heavy and expensive, while specific developments engage key resources of the company on long cycles condemning an effective ROI on many applications sometimes critical.
A DEEP DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION program aims to address a large number of operational processes simultaneously in order to achieve a profound digital transformation. This approach gives the push to take off to succeed it while laying the foundations of a digital platform in continuous improvement. This type of program is necessarily based on a particular software production industrialization technology that allows both the pooling of innovations and the maintainability of the entire application device that can reach several hundred applications. It must offer a very flexible architecture mobilizing the latest mobile technologies, critical vector to support the operational teams in their daily actions. This condition being fulfilled, the company can then engage a DEEP DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION program in which it will build a transformation device pooling projects, innovations, developments, system integrations, software distributions.
The transformation plan must operate in waves of increasing impacts.
The modes of governance of such transformation programs are specific to each organization, ranging from totally centralized to totally decentralized – each entity is autonomous in its access to the device – or hybrid organization schemes. The important thing is that innovations are pooled for the benefit of the entire organization; and each application is built on the common base – so in a controlled technological framework – and brings by its simple construction and production into its contribution brick to the rest of the organization.
A Deep Digital Transformation program relies on multiple phases :
Choosing a governance mode
The company must opt for a simplified mode of project governance in the first place in order to ensure the most appropriate management taking into account the objectives of the company, its culture and its organizational model. This governance model must ensure that group decision-making structures have visibility into the overall construction while ensuring that remote entities have autonomy of action that preserves responsiveness and adaptation to local specific needs.
The teams study in depth the opportunities and needs of the company. Before creating an application, it is necessary to ensure that investments are focused on appropriate solutions in relation to the overall strategy and offering the highest ROI. This analytical work is essential to effectively target current needs and anticipate future ones. Collective Intelligence Workshops serve as accelerators to submit local, regional or group decision-making plans to create solutions that combine SI, business and business perspectives.
Project managers must be trained in the creation of Zero Code applications. Different new administration ensures a light autonomy to push. These project managers will be able to mobilize the existing application device in zero code but also to specify new functionalities meeting the strategic objectives identified by the company. They will thus support all the operational managers of their entity, region, country or zone.
Appathlon workshops bringing business users to create functional MVPs in one day. During these workshops, non-developer and process owners can create theirs applications MVPs, basis of experimental reflection of any put into production.
Following the Appathlon workshops, governance decide which applications to actually put into production. Application production generally follows four phases of improvements and integrations to implement production versions that meet the critical needs of the application. If new features are added, the existing modules are subject to changes and thus increase the scope of possibilities offered to the following project teams.
Acceleration by wave
By applying this method, waves of simultaneous implementation of applications can be committed to support up to several tens of specific solutions on cycles of 3 to 6 months.
Unlike traditional approaches, the DEEP DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION PROGRAM is the only one able to support a real large-scale transformation program by addressing the specific needs of each operational entity as well as the most sensitive transversal processes of the company.
