How do you choose the right technology for your business?
Consider your end-user. Start by thinking about the user or customer, whether that be external or internal. With any technology, if it doesn’t suit the user’s needs then eventually, it will hinder your business’ digital transformation. Digital transformation is all about people, not technology. So it’s important to consider the people element first.
Set clear criteria. As with every step in your digital transformation, it’s vital to think back to your plan. Use these defined goals to set clear criteria as to what you need from a technology provider. Look beyond the normal. Learn from others online who have chosen technology before you, and take a look at customer reviews. However, look beyond this. Make sure your criteria is specific to your goals.
Weigh critical success criteria. Prioritize the criteria. It may not be possible to get all boxes ticked, so make sure you tick those that will make or break your transformation.
Breakdown the processes. Where does the technology fit it?
Get on the same page as your provider. Be honest about your goals and your needs. They can’t help you without a clear understanding.
