New technologies are being churned out on a daily basis. What technology can do and the impact its having is growing every single day. It’s understandable that it’s hard to keep up. Both, IT teams and managers need to constantly renew their skills and keep up with the latest trends. But currently, that is barely every happening. And it is posing a barrier to digital transformation.

Digital Skill Sets In IT Teams

IT teams must be able to understand what is going on with the technology your business is using. You might outsource your cloud computing processes to a third party provider. It makes sense as they have developed the knowledge and skills to ‘cloudify’ your infrastructure, applications and workloads, but that doesn’t mean your IT team can sit back.

In order to be responsive to security threats and make the most of the native abilities of the cloud, they still need a basic understand of the technology. So make sure that your IT team is up to speed.

Digital Skill Sets of C-Level Executives

As a C-level executive, a lot of responsibility lies on your shoulders. You are in charge of making the impactful decisions. If an investment goes wrong, it’ll land back on your desk to take responsibility for. As a result, C-level managers often don’t view new technologies as the exciting new discovery, but as an investment that first needs to be limited until its full scope, benefits, and drawbacks are understood. This way of thinking cripples digital transformation within businesses.
