“Digital transformation is more than just digital; it’s about remodeling businesses to be agile, innovative, and customer-centric at their core.” This is the heart of the message from Altimeter’s report by Brian Solis…
Solis says that many leaders incorrectly assume that pursuing digital transformation is the job of the IT department. “If you were to follow the findings of many other reports, you would believe that the secret to digital transformation was all about technology and how the modernization of work was the key to success. The truth is that it’s a far more human story. There are changes happening to and because of people in your markets,” he says.
Customers today are driven by three things: intent, context, and immediacy, observes Brian Solis, principal analyst at Altimeter Group, a Prophet company. “The digital-first customer has very little brand loyalty; if your solution meets his needs at that moment in time, he’ll choose you,” he says. “That’s why contextual data and insights have become very important for businesses.”
Groundbreaking research from Altimeter, a Prophet Company, has defined the six stages of digital transformation. And as a HubSpot agency, this is what we do for companies on a day-to-day basis. This brief introduction will help you determine where in this journey your company resides and give you ideas and tools on how to move ahead as a change agent. Study authors Brian Solis and Jaimy Szymanski note, “We live in an era of ‘Digital Darwinism,’ where society and technology evolve faster than the ability to adapt.” Disruptive technologies are affecting market dynamics and how businesses must respond to them. Instead of throwing up their hands and entrenching themselves in the old ways of doing business, Solis and Szymanski offer hope and a pathway for businesses to adapt to these constant changes through digital transformation.

“Digital transformation is a movement progressing without a universal map to guide businesses through proven and productive passages. This leaves organizations pursuing change from a known, safe approach that correlates with “business as usual” practices. Operating within the confines of traditional paradigms without purpose or vision eventually challenges the direction, capacity, and agility for thriving in a digital economy.”
“If you think of the wine and beer industries, many labels look the same — same shape, same back label, even similar websites,” Solis said. Many companies put craftsmanship above marketing, but the fact is that quality isn’t enough. “The word ‘brand’ means there’s something behind it that becomes relatable and shareable, and that takes some work,” he explained. “A great product is not going to be enjoyed if people don’t buy it and talk about it.”
Smartphones have become the primary screen among digitally connected consumers. As more people research, shop and buy financial services with their mobile device, a ‘mobile-first’ design strategy may not be enough.
A new report by Altimeter Group principal analyst Brian Solis outlines a framework for businesses that are looking to compete in the digital economy. Based on several years of research and interviews, this report identifies six stages of “digital transformation” and maps a path to “digital literacy and leadership.”
