Digital transformation in today’s economy: Push forward or put on hold?

The past three years have seen companies significantly ramp up their digital transformation in response to evolving customer demands and unstable global conditions. Now, it is abundantly clear that digital is the way forward, and companies must push forward in this direction to ensure any sort of long-term success and relevance.

However, companies are now facing new challenges—inflation at record levels, rising costs, budgets shrinking, and the state of the economy up in the air. Should companies continue their digital shift in pursuit of efficiency or slow down and put their plans on hold?

  • What challenges do companies face today in their digital transformation, considering the current economic downturn?
  • What can companies do today to cost-effectively sustain their digital transformation strategies without sacrificing long-term gains and flexibility?
  • Is the renewed focus on infosec/data breach/security influencing digital transformation focus areas?
