Digital Transformation as a Service (DXaaS) :

Over the last few years, most companies have undergone or initiated a digital transformation initiative, and the Covid-19 Pandemic has only accelerated this transformation. According to a report by McKinsey, Companies have accelerated digitization by three to four years to meet the new demands the pandemic has bought with it.

Despite this acceleration and more companies embracing digital transformation, not all these companies succeed in their initiative. Only about 30% of these companies succeed in their transformation. Moreover, those companies that do succeed are often left with huge silos of data that doesn’t address today’s digital needs.

Digital Transformation as a service (DXaaS) is designed to address the transforming industry by nurturing an environment that

  • promotes continuous transformation
  • provides a flexible model that allows you to scale and respond to growing business needs as and when they arise.

Benefits of a DXaaS

One Goal. One Unit.

Many business service providers, technology providers and hardware providers are involved in a Transformation initiative; the DXaaS platform must bring together these stakeholders and facilitate a continuous transformation while constantly adapting to the Changing Business Environment.

Scalability & Cost Effectiveness

DXaaS eliminates the huge upfront Investment requirement that hinders an organization's digital transformation initiative through its Value-based Subscription Models. The subscription model allows your organization to start with its digital transformation initiative almost immediately and can be scaled up or down depending on the evolving needs.

End-to-End Solutions

A good DXaaS solution goes above and beyond to facilitate any digital transformation initiative to its entirety, starting with strategic planning among the different stakeholders and going through multiple phases before the initiative can be taken live and implemented.

In addition, DXaaS promotes automation and governance during the entire digital transformation program. Once the transformation is completed, DXaaS would help to establish a model where you can continually analyze and improve existing processes in a reiterative manner.


Any Migration or transformation initiative leaves behind redundant data which is not scalable or adaptable to the new environment. To avoid this and embrace the existing data, the DXaaS provides you with a pipeline framework through which you must pass the data. The pipeline facilitates the entire lifecycle starting with mining and discovering the existing data, followed by collection and cleansing the unnecessary processes that are to become void with the migration and finally visualizing and reporting. Thus, Ensuring a seamless flow of data from the Existing to the newly Migrated version.

Cultural Shift

“Organizations that Embrace the Cultural shift that accompanies any digital transformation initiative are 2.5 more times more likely to succeed in the initiative.”

DXaaS considers the cultural shift and encourages a strong agile, experimental, Risk-taking culture that is consistently backed by analytics and data which, focuses on week-based Planning rather than Multiyear planning.

Promoting week-based planning allows your organizations to constantly reprioritize and address business needs that need to be addressed immediately as and when they arise.

Integrity and Harmony

The different systems, functional units and business units are unified, giving rise to business processes that are continuously monitored autonomously through preconfigured bots and constantly offering suggestions, ensuring you are continuously moving in a path toward sustained success.
