As you may have already discovered, a remote workforce poses new challenges for your information technology stack and staff. Not surprisingly, a majority (59%) of IT decision makers have ramped up their DX plans, according to IDG Research.

The pace of a digital transformation may vary with the size and type of organization, but most DX journeys can be divided three stages.
The first stage of the transformation is the actual conversion of data from obsolete software and hardware to a modern, adaptable technology stack, that is often fully or partially cloud-based. Many transformation projects end here, but with iBridge’s guidance, this is only the beginning.
Stage 2 involves the adaptation of your information and document management to improve operational analysis and decision-making. followed by information, and customers.
This is arguably the most important stage, as your DX implementation drives increased knowledge of market conditions and customer needs, while giving your teams the awareness and tools to foster a new level of customer satisfaction.
