ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Datavard, a global leader in optimizing IT investments and migrating systems to S/4HANA, announced its digital skillset training for U.S.-based executives and the C-suite.
Datavard teamed up with the consulting firm +RASMUSSEN to establish Innovard, a joint venture focused on digital transformation. Innovard provides business transformation consultation and combines technological know-how and leadership skills to facilitate the digitization process. The consulting portfolio is offered to executives of international corporations and includes digital skillset workshops and trainings, as well as support in the development of concrete use cases and project implementation.
“Business leaders find it more difficult than ever before to balance speed of innovation with organizational transformation,” said Thomas Iseler, MD Datavard, USA. Digital has proven itself to no longer be a luxury, but rather a necessity to an organization’s survival. Continuous change, the rapid development of technology, and the disruption of competitive landscapes requires that companies advance their digital roadmaps in order to innovate and improve efficiencies. For executives, managers and employees it is essential to leverage these changes as opportunities to enhance work environments and create new business models.
A McKinsey & Associates study from July 2017 found that the top three hurdles for digital transformation are culture, lack of understanding of digital trends and lack of talent for digital topics. Thus, in order to realize the opportunities that digital can provide, organizations must ensure their employees have an agile mindset combined with the right digital skills.
