Today, every corporation is going through a digital transformation, reshaping itself in order to transition into an operation ready to flourish in the emerging data-driven future. But a digital transformation comes with plenty of very specific challenges. Choosing the right technology, creating and deploying the proper architecture for the technology stack, dealing with the security challenges and legislative requirements, setting up comprehensive change management programs to guide the organization through this existential change, and much more.
One very crucial key to success is also the methodology applied to execute and manage the typical projects for digital transformation. The nature of those projects demands an Agile approach. But making sure that an entire organization truly understands Agile and is also able to put it into practice, is not an easy journey.
With its powerful and fully diagnostic end-to-end DataMiner management and orchestration software platform, Skyline plays a central role in many successful digital transformation projects around the world as the global leading technology supplier for the ICT media and broadband industry. But being more than just a technology supplier, Skyline also brings a lot of other added value to the table for this type of projects, such as a very unique industry expertise.
