Cisco’s IT Blueprint for Digital Transformation

November 4, 2016 - 15 Comments

Digital transformation is changing the landscape of business today and no company, regardless of industry, size, or location is immune from the pressure of these rapid changes.

When I speak with customers, they understand the need to transform, however one of the most frequent questions that I am asked is HOW. How do I transform my organization? What are the steps I need to take to transform into a digital company?

While digital transformation may be different for each organization, I can share Cisco IT’s Blueprint for Digital Transformation that can help customers transform their own business. Cisco IT has used the following blueprint to enable digital transformation in partnership with Business Leaders.

  1. Enable New Business Models
  2. Simplify Everything – IT as a Service
  3. Modular IT and Automate
  4. Deliver Data to Drive Business Decisions
  5. Continuous Delivery
  6. Security Everywhere
