By integrating cutting-edge technologies into every aspect of business, digital transformation creates unprecedented opportunities for growth and innovation. Digital leaders are ready to transform organizations through partnerships with business leaders and become disruptive forces in their industries.
The same way an intrepid explorer can possess all the necessary skills, gear, and grit to climb a mountain, there is no substitute for the accompaniment of an experienced guide with a map and knowledge of the terrain. CIOs who possess all the ideal leadership traits will still benefit from the right business transformation tools.
Maturity model: Your opportunity to shine
By analyzing nearly 100 line-of-business capabilities and technology enablers associated with the four business outcomes of digital transformation (engaging customers, empowering employees, optimizing operations, and transforming products and services), the rich Microsoft digital maturity model provides a clear assessment of each. These assessments can then be used to strategize, align technology solutions, and allocate attention, depending on your goals.
Used in conjunction with other Microsoft digital transformation services, this model is a powerful tool that provides three-dimensional, long-term support for creating a digital-first business.
