The Digital Transformation PACT Report

Realizing an organization’s digital vision isn’t only about having the right technology. Truly making the most of the transformative impact of digital also means having the right people, processes and partnerships in place.

People, Actions, Collaboration and Technology: it is this PACT that serves as the basis of successful digital transformation today.

To investigate how organizations are dealing with making their own PACT, we surveyed more than 1,600 businesses across five key areas – their digital strategy; their people, talent and skills; actions or the behaviors; collaboration and co-creation; and the technology that they use.

The results suggest that there is disequilibrium in bringing those four vital ingredients for digital success; potentially pointing to the fact that whilst more than half of all organizations have already delivered digital transformation projects, a third have cancelled projects in the past two years at a typical cost of €555,000 - that's approximately £500,000 or $660,000.
