The establishment of a digital roadmap must become a strategic activity that will guide the evolution of the company and the products and services that it offers on the market. This roadmap must take into account the company’s medium to long-term challenges, the maturity of the solutions considered, the company’s ability to evolve towards the proposed solutions and the positioning of key competitors on the market.

The need to adopt a digital roadmap

The digital roadmap must be part of the company’s master plan and benefit from high-level sponsorship. It must be established in consultation with the management, the business lines and IT. A detailed knowledge of the market’s digital solutions as well as feedback from the sector’s industries is a key element to feed into the reflection. In addition, a diagnosis of the company’s digital maturity will also help to establish the most appropriate strategy, both in terms of technical choices, development approaches and scenarios.
