Your company might be a startup or a big corporation. When it comes to embracing digital transformation, they are no different.

In this article, we will discuss digital transformation (some call it as IT transformation) and how vital it is for any type of business to survive and always stay ahead of the curve.


Simply put, it is an integration of digital technology that changes the way companies operate and deliver services or products. Adopting digital transformation itself is a fundamental change for any business. So, that is why the integration needs to be done seamlessly without any fatal error. Otherwise, it may cause serious damage to your business.

Making fundamental changes in a company is always a challenge and implementing digital technologies can be even harder especially for traditional businesses. Why is that? It is because it is not only about adopting technology into your business. It is also about changing company culture and behavior.

According to McKinsey’s research on the success rate of enterprises’ digital transformation, the result is quite shocking. Only less than 30% of businesses completed their digital transformation successfully. They also stated that it is getting harder to implement DX successfully year by year. That shows that digital transformation is not an easy thing to do.

As we said, digital transformation is not only about upgrading or replacing your existing digital technologies. But it is also about changing company culture and providing the necessary training for your staff.

In terms of implementing new digital technologies and integrating with your enterprise seamlessly, CloudMile can help since we ensure complete integration.


CloudMile’s digital transformation process consists of 3 pillars which are digital strategy, cloud adoption program, and AI transformation program. Let us talk more about each of these steps briefly.

CloudMile Digital Transformation Journey

The first step is called digital strategy that CloudMile understands the client’s strategy, what he/she wants to achieve, and long term goals. And then the next step is to plan and create a digital transformation journey map that the client agrees and aligns with his/her business objectives.  

And then the next one is the cloud adoption program that starts with an interview with the existing technology and identifying gaps and then continues with upgrading/modernizing the client’s infrastructure. 

The third and last step is the AI transformation program that aimed to automate operation/dig insight from enormous data volume by empowering AI technology. 

All these three steps ensure a successful, seamless digital transformation that any business needs. CloudMile can help you with all technical implementation and provide professional support constantly. Meanwhile, CloudMile can act as a trusted advisor alongside for transforming your company culture and operation. However, the company must transform its culture and working environment too. 

CloudMile’s complete DT journey map is an excellent guide that shows you in which steps CloudMile walks you through. It literally means you will never walk alone in this digital transformation journey.

As we talked about McKinsey’s research on the success rate of implementation DT before. They also stated the key factors to make the transformation process successful. These are; 

  • Having digital-savvy leaders, in other words, the right leader to lead DT
  • Developing talent and skills in the entire organization
  • Fostering people to work in new ways in the organization 
  • Digitizing day-to-day tools and processes for staff to get familiar  
  • Clear communication is essential for successful DT, so the fundamental change story must be told to employees to understand what’s going on and where the enterprise is heading. 

As you see, digital transformation must be considered as a fundamental change that requires full integration. We can’t just embrace DT partly. It is all or nothing. Actually, not embracing digital transformation can’t be an option if you want your business to survive and go further.
