Digital Transformation

You want to know the value of digital transformation. The fact is, it’s so much more than just the technology. It’s about understanding the way technology influences your future state and how to prepare your organization for the impact it will bring. Baker Tilly is here with technology solutions — and recommendations — that make sense.

    Choose an ally who can help you avoid the pitfalls.

    Chances are, you know your digital transformation is critical. But without the right guide helping you manage the many moving parts, successful execution can be difficult. Consider some of these recent statistics:

    • More than 80% of projects fail to achieve their intended goals
    • McKinsey-Oxford study: On average, large IT projects run 45% over budget and 7% over time, while delivering 56% less value than predicted
    • Harvard Business Review: 1 in 6 projects have an average cost overrun of 200% and schedule overrun of 70%
    • Companies that do not prioritize change management processes on a project take 50% more time to achieve benefits or don’t achieve benefits at all

    With outcomes like these, companies need a team of reliable, strategic professionals with knowledge and experience in all aspects of enterprise transformation. Baker Tilly’s transformation services helps organizations avoid these issues. With more than 100 “health checks” performed for large, complex transformation initiatives, we’re adept at helping companies assess the current state of their projects and providing road maps for improvement.

    The transformation journey goes beyond the technology.

    We know your transformation journey will be unlike any other company’s. So we work with you to understand your specific organizational needs — listening and asking the right questions — then meeting you where you are today with the digital solutions that can deliver game-changing efficiencies and better customer experiences tomorrow.

    These processes are a key component to a successful digital transformation. We first assess your current program and project management capabilities, including auditing the quality of in-progress projects. We then establish methodologies, control mechanisms, and supporting execution and measurement capabilities necessary to safely execute complex enterprise transformation programs. After implementation, we continue to collaborate throughout the execution stage to help ensure success.

    Digital transformation involves many layers of change, like processes, supporting technology and operating models.

    We identify the changes necessary to successfully navigate and operationalize complex transformation. Then we design and implement comprehensive change programs to address challenges and align the organization toward the common transformation goal.

    At Baker Tilly, we’ve developed a unique approach to getting to know your business. Our business strategy assessment is a diagnostic tool that measures the readiness of your business for digital transformation — your strategic problem solving, strategy articulation, current capabilities and future-state maturity levels —all to develop a strategic road map so you can achieve your business goals.

    For a true digital transformation, process design is critical for assembling and aligning technology capabilities. We will examine and continually refine your existing processes in the context of broader transformational priorities to identify opportunities to refocus, simplify how work will be performed in the future, and enact change.

    After understanding your organization’s transformational goals, Baker Tilly can facilitate the evaluation of your current technology to identify any gaps in existing capabilities. We then guide you through the selection of key technology to fill gaps, whether it’s an extension to your current solution, procurement of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions or identifying the appropriate “build” situation.

    Based on your business transformation goals, we prioritize the design, configuration, testing, training and deployment of enterprise-class software packages and platforms. Once implemented, we ensure you have the necessary support to achieve operational efficiencies.
