Today, organizations are collecting data at every level of their business and in volumes that in the past were unimaginable.

Adding to this complexity is the distribution of these data sets across the enterprise in silos requiring a varied set of tools and/or specialized business rules for data transformation, classification, matching, and integration. Because of the massive amounts of data stored in a variety of representation formats, decision makers strain to derive insights and create business solutions that adequately span and integrate information from these disparate technology islands.

Digital transformation (DX) is the continuous process by which enterprises adapt to or drive disruptive change by leveraging digital competencies, such as harnessing sensor data or using location, customer profile, and a mobile app to make shopping recommendations. DX reshapes the organization's culture where required; leverages existing processes, systems, and assets; and creates net-new digital capabilities as needed.
With DX, there is the need to embrace new business models and new architectures and technologies that will help an enterprise with customer-facing innovation as well as transition existing systems, processes, organization structure, and relationships to support the transformation.

Digital disruption is imminent in every industry
The real question is: how do you adopt technology in a way that optimizes your existing processes and transforms your organization? Of course, no two businesses are the same, and transformation will look different for each business. That's why Microsoft has pinpointed a pattern to success in digital transformation across companies - both small and large.
These companies all used technology to achieve fundamental goals that ladder up to four principles:
Optimize business processes and operations
Transform products through digital content
The notion of digitizing your business has become a matter of “when,” rather than “if.” For many, migrating critical workloads to the cloud is a key part of this transformation. When deciding on a
cloud provider, however, IT executives are under pressure to find a solution that enables reduced costs, greater agility, and above all, the ability to innovate core business processes.
At the heart of many businesses embarking on this journey is their SAP environment. But since SAP workloads represent some of the most critical and deeply integrated business applications, IT executives are required to look for ways to execute this migration in the most timely and reliable manner. Organizations migrating to the cloud cannot risk application downtime or productivity loss
The research explores the challenges surrounding digital transformation and provides recommendations based on four key areas.
Understanding the drivers of change for your business
Identifying the risk factors that influence successful transformation
Overcoming cultural and organizational resistance to change
Increasing the agility of existing systems to drive transformation
