During last month’s Leeds Digital Festival, I had the pleasure of hosting a round-table discussion on RPA entitled Robotic Process Automation: The Emperor’s New Clothes? The collective insights of my guests – senior representatives of businesses from across the north of England – made for a truly fascinating debate and I want to share the fruits of our discussion with you.
Do you feel like you have all bases covered to make the organisational impact with your transformation programme? That it will be an easy tick in the box at the end of the project. You've got it all wrong then.
It’s no surprise then that over 80% of companies fail to some extent when delivering digital transformation. In this blog post, I've captured insights on digital transformation risks from Prahlad Koti, the Managing Director of our UK business. These recommendations are relevant whether you are embarking on a new transformation programme, and equally, if you need help with an existing or failing project.
Following the success of our first internal Hackathon with Mastek, our key IT partner in June last year, we promised that we would run another one soon. Since it was a UK-based event, it was not available to our Mastek colleagues in Mumbai. Therefore, the concept of the first Together and Mastek Hackathon was born. This blog post captures my insights of the day without the use of too many techie terms along the way.
In recent years, we’ve had the pleasure of working with several local councils to support them in realising their digital ambitions. By translating ‘analogue’ council services into digital services, they’ve increased transparency and access to services while reducing costs. As satisfying as the involvement has been, we’re even more excited about what the future holds.
We recently helped a customer use machine learning concepts to build models for predicting how their customers will shift across channels. It is a significant milestone in our ability to help customers create their digital strategy and specifically, to build the business case for the channels that they should go after.

It sets the winners apart from the losers. Yes, test automation can revive flagging digital transformation projects and give new ones a head start. In fact, it is essential for enterprises to succeed in the digital age.
The ROI of Cloud Adoption
In this blog post, we identify the benefits that should be realised when adopting cloud to support a digital transformation. We look at the cloud factors described in Part 1 in relation to the benefits that you must calculate when considering agile and automation benefits.
Essential Cloud Provider Selection Criteria for Digital Transformation
Through this second blog in a series of three blogs, we focus on the key steps you must follow when considering cloud adoption to support digital transformation (Read Part 1 here). We will review factors to consider when moving to a cloud compute platform, in terms of the benefits and avenues for exploration.
Cloud computing as it is known today has existed for circa 60 years. Its most well adopted and referenced definition is from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which states that ‘cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (such as networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.’
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the need to respond to market dynamics with faster development cycles, then digital transformation could be your Goliath. It’s not surprising then that 70 percent of digital transformation programmes fail. This could be because of a lack of a well thought out digital testing strategy.
