Past and present projects
Development of a companywide digital strategy
Digacon developed a companywide digital strategy of a swiss multinational company in cooperation with their CIO. The specific examination of the digitalization’s consequences – starting with the inherent business model, was a crucial aspect in the creation of the future digital strategic direction of the company. The already running digital initiatives of the company’s respective divisions were chosen as the gateway for the development of the digital strategy.
Even though the company’s digitalization already benefited from the individual digital initiatives, it was necessary to establish a superior construct to centrally steer the initiatives in the future.
For this purpose, all the important stakeholders of the respective divisions were closely incorporated in the development process, to integrate the various strategic digital projects into a single overall strategy. In order for the company to measure the accompanying added values, Digacon developed KPI’s for the individual divisions. Based on the developed digital strategy, the next step is to create a concrete roadmap, which specifies the implementation of concrete projects within the divisions.
