Infographic: Five Steps to Digital Transformation Success


Software complexity can be crippling in IT. Functional-, data- and technical-complexity can all be barriers to digital transformation, especially for companies that are rapidly expanding or have evolved over generations of hardware and software advances. The difficulty of addressing this complexity helps explain why most sectors continue to struggle to digitally transform.

Saad Ayub’s 20x20n digital transformation framework offers a data-driven approach to understanding existing technical stacks, and it’s a great place to start. But to help set you on the right path from the beginning (even if you’ve already started), check-in and make sure you’ve addressed these five priorities for digital success:

  1. Dabble in digital technologies and test them out before you fully invest.
  2. Plan for digital today and for digital tomorrow.
  3. Hire for digital skills and be prepared to re-train your workforce over time.
  4. Create opportunities to transform into a digitally-native organization.
  5. Adopt digital-enabling processes and ways of working like Agile, SaFE and DevOps.

  This report describes the effects of different industrial factors on  structural quality. Structural quality differed across technologies with COBOL  applications generally having the lowest densities of critical weaknesses,  while JAVA-EE had the highest densities. While structural quality differed  slightly across industry segments, there was almost no effect from whether the  application was in- or outsourced, or whether it was produced on- or off-shore.  Large variations in the densities in critical weaknesses across applications  suggested the major factors in structural quality are more related to  conditions specific to each application.

Open source is part of almost every software capability we use today. At the  very least libraries, frameworks or databases that get used in mission critical  IT systems. In some cases entire systems being build on top of open source  foundations. Since we have been benchmarking IT software for years, we thought  we would set our sights on some of the most commonly used open source software  (OSS) projects.
