Source: Skedulo

Digital transformation is critical for business viability across nearly every industry, and those in the energy sector are no exception. At its core, digital transformation is the ongoing process of integrating digital technologies into every part of the business—from customer success, to sales, to marketing, to operations, to the field workforce, and beyond—to drive efficiency and profitability. 

Many organizations in the energy industry have already embarked upon their transformation journeys, but they often struggle to get it right. They face 100-year-old infrastructure, which was implemented long before the bits and bytes of today’s modern solutions. It’s increasingly unreliable and environmentally unsound, and is even more difficult to manage as the aging workforce takes with them their skills and knowledge upon retirement. 

Outdated, large-scale infrastructure can be time-consuming and costly to replace, so many utilities companies have been hesitant to adapt. But in order to remain competitive, they must find ways to overcome the challenges with which they contend: And a strong digital transformation strategy backed by smart digital solutions can help. The right approach drives operational success and equips businesses to compete in a now digital-first society. Strategic use of digital software can help organizations increase profit margins, solidify their customer relationships, and stay ahead of the curve.

Here, we’ll take a close look at the digital transformation challenges that plague businesses in today’s energy sector, 4 key aspects to consider, and some sophisticated strategies to ensure success.
