Setting up the requirements and conducting market research
Organizations should first understand the digital transformation process as it is a long-term goal for making business functions easy with changing technology trends. All through business, leaders will have a clear understanding of the organization's vision and mission, but they have to list the requirements for digitization of their systems according to business functions keeping the future in mind.

Also help in reducing the communication gap between enterprise leaders and digital transformation vendor by allowing them to speak in the tone of their business operations.
Checking in-house capabilities
Organizations should identify the internal strengths of the in-house resources with expertise in IT services and solutions. Post identification, the organization can connect such in-house resources with the external vendors to enhance the communication between the vendor and the business leaders. Also, the vendor should train these resources with advanced features and emerging technologies to make strong technological support internally and externally for the organization.
Evaluating with demo and success stories
Digital transformation is a long and expensive process with a lot of challenges involved. From the growing technology world, only a few IT vendors have successfully transformed their client systems into digital according to the requirements of the business.
