When purchasing Digital Transformation services like any other automation or RPA service, you want to understand the scope of what you are purchasing. How is your provider defining digital transformation? What technology are they using to determine which parts of your business need updating? How much change are they suggesting? Read on for these answers and more.
What is Digital Transformation?
Digital Transformation is the adoption of digital technology by an organization through the introduction of a digital workforce that complements your human workforce.
This is the Wonderbotz definition because we are RPA specialists. We focus on updating slow, repetitive, costly processes done by people and build quick efficient robots (automations) to perform those tasks digitally.
Wikipedia is more vague:
Digital transformation (DX) is the adoption of digital technology by an organization to digitize non-digital products, services or operations. The goal for its implementation is to increase value through innovation, invention, customer experience or efficiency.
Their definition starts with the digitalization of paper systems, and would include the updating of old and out-of-date software or practices.
The Enterprisers’ definition is more aggressive and prepares you for the emotional impact of change:
Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, fundamentally changing how you operate and deliver value to customers. It’s also a cultural change that requires organizations to continually challenge the status quo, experiment, and get comfortable with failure.
And they are right, any significant change in an organization runs the risk of failure. That is why choosing the right partner for your digital transformation project is vital.
How to know which elements of your business need digital transformation
If you are a small to medium size local business you know what you need, or at least where to start looking. You can see piles of papers, or staff members pulling up 4 spreadsheets to complete a task. Your leadership team knows if the back-office staff are running windows 95 on their desktop machines.
But you may not be fully aware what RPA is or how it can change the speed and efficiency of your organization.
What are the functions that RPA supports?
RPA supports most repetitive rule based business functions. Intelligent RPA can create automation workflows that span across existing legacy software, ERP and third-party web services. This allows seamless integration of your new digital workers with existing processes and solutions, leading to easier adoption by your staff. Using a good RPA provider creates collaboration with leaders to minimize operational disruption of the front, middle and back-office activities.

Digital Transformation and Hyperautomation
If you are a larger company, perhaps one with multiple locations, or outsource teams in different regions it can be harder to get an overview of how work is being performed in your organization.
