  • Accelerating Digital Transformation:Understanding and Setting Up a Digital Services Unit

  • Governing Digital Services

    Digital transformation brings in multiple risks and challenges. Business cycles are now faster and more integrated, there is an increased demand for cross-silo capabilities, and there are greater risks due to brand exposure in social media. To answer such challenges and address the opportunities, companies need to set up firm-level governance around their digital initiatives1. The lack of governance can indeed lead to very poor outcomes. As a Pfizer senior executive recently put it: We have many different brands in many markets, so when it comes to digital opportunities, we can have one thousand flowers blooming and thats not really scalable to any of our stakeholders2. Companies that have adopted this laisser-faire approach have indeed seen a thousand flowers bloom: a retail company, for example, introduced nine applications with 12 functionalities, using five different technologies. These applications, each with multiple functionalities, resulted in inconsistent, uncoordinated service offerings that confused customers and finally led to increased costs, breached security policies and a damaged brand image3. The company did not have any governance structure in place.

    The importance of governance in digital transformation is something that digital leaders have fully understood. As we have seen in our research with the MIT Center for Digital Business, digital leaders invest heavily in governance mechanisms and this directly impacts their performance4. For instance, we observed that while only 35% of beginners5 had a digital unit, over 55% of the digirati6 had one. On an overall basis, only 48% of companies had a dedicated organizational unit that provided digital skills and policies for the whole company (see Figure 1).

    Implementing a Digital Services Unit (DSU) can help companies establish strong firm-level governance.

    A DSU is an organizational structure, which focuses on digital activities across an organization. A DSU plays a critical role by challenging traditional strategies and incorporating new digital initiatives. Implementing a DSU can help firms in accelerating their digital transformation. This governance mechanism will help organizations deal with digital resources shortage, skills development, establishment of policies and standards, IP protection, or service catalog and project prioritization. Also, as a sharing mechanism, the DSU will help controlling costs, both in time and money. This paper discusses how to create a DSU and the active role it plays in accelerating digital transformation in an organization.

    Capgemini Consulting, in partnership with the MIT Center for Digital Business, as part of a multi-year research program on Digital Transformation identified four levels of maturity. Beginners have a management that is skeptical of the business value of advanced digital technologies. Conservatives have an overarching digital vision, that is however underdeveloped. Fashionistas have advanced digital features in silos, but they have no overarching vision and poor coordination. Digirati have a strong overarching digital vision that is backed by good governance. They also have a strong digital culture.

  • DSU as a Pathway to Accelerated Digital Transformation

    A DSU, as a control unit, interacts with all functions within an organization and coordinates efforts across various units. For instance, Nestls centralized DSU is responsible for a wide catalog of digital services including e-commerce platforms, digital marketing, social media, consumer relationships, m-commerce, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), analytics and R&D.

    DSUs play a critical role in formulating and implementing digital strategies, developing digital services for business units, brands or countries, facilitating innovation, and monetizing digital assets, by creating new avenues for digital businesses (see Figure 2).

    Driving Digital StrategyA DSU establishes a company-wide digital strategy to ensure a consistent experience for customers across digital channels. It defines a clear roadmap by analyzing customer requirements, the companys strategy, the competition, and operational competencies. Once a roadmap has been designed, the DSU coordinates alignment between local and global digital strategies to achieve optimal results. For instance, Spanish media major Prisas digital unit has a clear mandate to lead and coordinate all online activities and businesses across the firm with a digital strategy

    unit sub-group that drives digital strategy, sales, innovation and revenue management. By establishing clear guidelines on responsibilities, the DSU can help minimize overlapping work areas, and thereby accountabilities. Our research showed that over 80% of firms agreed that establishment of strategies and policies ranked high among the roles of a digital unit7.

    Enabling a Digital Factory

    A DSU drives collaboration by facilitating a dialogue between the digital units and internal clients. The DSU also helps in maximizing resources by creating a service catalog. For instance, Philips has a digital competence center that provides services to both Philips business units and countries, with the marketing service desk acting as a single point of contact for marketing.

  • 80% of firms believe that establishment of standards and policies is a key role of a Digital Services Unit.

    Fostering Innovation

    A DSU enables the organization to offer a wider product range and reduce innovation cycle times. In its centralized role, a DSU encourages innovation through the usage of digital technologies and platforms such as crowd sourcing, open-source platforms and social media networks. These digital platforms and technologies help drive innovation and ideation even in large distributed organizations.

    For instance, at Starbucks, the company launched several innovative initiatives under a team headed by a chief digital officer. One of these includes a mobile payments solution that, till April 2012, had processed over 45 million mobile payments8.

    Building Digital Skills

    A DSU drives digital skills and competencies across the organization by conducting organization-wide trainings and knowledge-sharing sessions. Since the DSU is also the umbrella unit when it comes to digital development across all functions in the organization, it can consequently play a critical role in collating and developing relevant digital skills. This avoids skill build-up in silos.

    Monetizing Opportunities

    The role of a DSU is also to coordinate local business units and offer them advice on asset monetization avenues within the digital space to help

    them expand their business reach. Some of these avenues range from selling digital content to leveraging paid advertisements, entering into e-commerce agreements with third parties, to community management. For example, Starbucks offers its free WiFi users access to an exclusive in-store premium content network called Starbucks Digital Network. This exclusive network is the result of a partnership with Yahoo that aims at enhancing customer experience at Starbucks stores, by providing free and interesting content from a variety of partners9.

    Creating New Digital Businesses A DSU can also help create new digital businesses. Technologies such as virtual prototyping, 3-D renditions and modeling, business intelligence and Big Data analytics, provide opportunities for organizations to develop new business offerings. All these offerings have the potential to become business ventures, which can then be autonomously managed by the DSU. These ventures can either be developed in-house or through collaboration with external third-party organizations.

    Implementing a DSU not only accelerates the journey toward digital transformation, but also delivers tangible benefitsprocess transparency, improved inter-divisional collaboration within the organization, accelerated time to market, improved customer satisfaction

    scores, and process automationto the organization and the consumer. It improves the quality of digital services through the execution of consistent and repeatable processes. It enables decision making at the right level, optimizes budgets by sharing resources, and provides more control over the tools and services development. It also provides business units with a fair amount of autonomy in order to enable them to design their own relevant KPIs for digital services. A DSU also improves efficiency through well-defined roles and responsibilities, and improved partnership between IT and business functions. This enhances internal communication across the organization.

    In the rest of the paper, we expand on how to select and implement the right governance model for a DSU.

  • Setting a DSU in Motion

    DSU effectiveness is both a function of how it is designed and how it is implemented. Before implementing a DSU, it is important to decide on the governance model that would administer the DSU upon set-up. A DSU governance model establishes the roles and responsibilities of a DSU.

    Selecting an Appropriate DSU Governance Model In order to establish a robust DSU governance model, it is important to consider the department to which the shared resources are aligned and the level of internal coordination that is required within the organization. These two factors will determine the most favourable model an organization can implement. There are two broad approaches to creating an effective DSU Governance Model. First is a Two-Halves-in-One model that can be further categorized by who is leading it, IT or Marketing. The other approach is an integrated model. Each model has its own sets of pros and cons. Organizations can choose any model depending on their vision and digital maturity.

    IT-Centric DSU Model

    This model involves setting up a distinct entity around digital a global DSU hosted in IT. The Digital IT unit interacts with the IT and other internal departments to determine the IT service catalog for internal clients (see Figure 3).

    Once a list of services is defined, the Digital IT unit draws up a service catalog, which consists of currently active services, and those that need development. Inputs are then taken from internal clients. These inputs allow the creation of a broad dimension that enables the organization to depict the interdependencies of IT with other functions. This allows the organization to determine the optimal level of control the Digital IT unit will have.

    The IT-Centric DSU model unifies technology initiatives across business units and fosters collaboration across employees in headquarters and global

    regions. For instance, an investment products and services company closely integrated its global IT and operations, which enabled a more integrated definition of global processes, and transformed multiple IT systems of the company into a unified global platform. Recently, the company extended governance to include new digital initiatives such as social reputation monitoring, micro-blogging and mobile selling10.

    The IT-centric model allows for local control on the developed services, including aspects of technical choices, roadmap, and pace of execution. The model also offers autonomy to individual BUs and helps foster motivation, and increase creativity and innovation.

    The main challenge with this model is the connection with brands and marketing since this remains, primarily, an IT-led initiative.

    The choice of governance model is determined by the resources shared and levels of coordination required for implementation.

  • Marketing-Centric DSU Model

    Digital services in this model are delivered by a separate business unit Digital Marketing. This new entity provides digital services to two separate existing unitstraditional marketing and salesto define a digital service catalog for all the services provided to external clients (see Figure 4). Similar to the IT-centric DSU, resources attached to this DSU model

    continue to be a part of their respective parent groups.

    A service catalog is developed with a collective definition of services, which consists of current services offered, and services needing development. A digital board overlooks the coordination of actions (scope, budgets, and roadmaps) across various business units.

    A marketing-centric DSU setup acts as a common platform that creates new digital businesses, and therefore, generates new revenues. It also helps enhance portfolio and improve customer experience. For instance Telefonica and Etisalat established new DSUs to drive growth across new lines of businesses. Further, DSUs of both companies recently signed an agreement to jointly develop business opportunities, license products and share knowledge across a range of digital services such as cloud computing, m-commerce solutions, video services, digital advertising and

    others. This agreement enables both companies to implement best practices of digital services and consumer experience11. Similarly, a European airline integrated part of the sales team with a part of their marketing team. Here the digital IT team is hierarchically linked to the IT department and the web support team is linked to the sales department12. A key challenge in setting up a marketing-centric DSU is in engaging and creating partnerships with multiple external parties, such as Web-based agencies.

    The biggest advantage to the marketing-centric DSU model is that it affords autonomy to individual BUs and enables dedicated service to respective clients.

    However, the model does have its challenges. The main challenge is to connect with IT in order to optimize the investments on digital capabilities since it is IT that has the lead on digital capabilities such as analytics and solution delivery.

    The IT-Centric model has a clear focus on internal users while the Marketing-centric model caters to external clients. With different service catalogs being maintained for internal and external clients, both these models provide clarity on needs of their respective clients.

    Integrated DSU Model

    Contrary to the IT-Centric and Marketing-Centric models, where digital teams formally remain as part of their parent entities, the integrated model pools these digital resources into a new dedicated entity. Consequently, there is a unique catalog presenting services offered by the unit, and common processes for demand management or service delivery.

    An integrated model utilizes a single business unit (BU) for all digital initiatives and services. The newly established BU aligns each function

    to a common core principle, which drives business value. In the integrated business models, all functions share P&L responsibility, thus motivating each function to cooperate and coordinate for best results (see Figure 5).

    In the integrated model, the marketing function is the business driver, while IT operations enable business processes. The integrated model manages and enhances service catalogs based on shared resource pools between functions. For instance, a Spanish media player created a digital unit made up of two clearly differentiated organizations, one focused on managing the IT infrastructure and the other on driving the digital strategy of the overall group. The digital unit reports in to the Chief Digital Officer13.

    The integrated model allows for setup of clear objectives and responsibilities for the DSU, which facilitates decision making and communication with local units. It is also easier to holistically drive and monitor digital transformation, consistently grow skills, and mitigate risks of redundant initiatives. These are possible due to the fact that the DSU is a separate unit that interacts with both marketing and IT. Implementing an integrated model reduces operational costs due to reduction of skill duplication, drives innovation, and reduces time to market, given its independent standing within an organization. It is easier to govern and align measureable KPIs to each function, as all functions are driven by common objectives.

    There are challenges, too. Creating a new multidisciplinary entity can be a significant cultural challenge and thus can encounter strong resistance. With this model, organizations will need to manage balance of power issues across the various entities. The organization needs to prepare for change to ensure that all the entities are aligned to the same goal.

    Our research indicated that management of the governance model differs according to an organizations digital maturity. For instance, we found that IT departments in over 51% of all beginners are responsible for driving digital governance. On the other hand, in the digirati, the sway of the

    standalone IT department diminishes with only 28% companies having them in the drivers seat. Similar results can be seen in the role of the marketing department and its extent of control on the DSU across the beginners and the digirati (see Figure 6).

  • In summary, each model has its specific pros and cons that organizations need to bear in mind before they chose the model that is apt for them (see Figure 7). However, as our research shows, it appears digital leaders prefer the integrated model. The ability to set clear objectives and responsibilities for the DSU, with both marketing and IT playing distinct, yet crucial roles, is a key attraction for digital leaders.

  • After deciding on a governance model, the next step for the organization is to embark on a structured implementation plan (see Figure 8).

    Phase 1: Deciding the Organization Principles Conceptualization is crucial in the initial phase of the implementation. This phase involves chalking out the need to implement a DSU. An overall approach is defined, based on the broader context of a DSUs purpose. The chosen governance model should create a framework that facilitates decision making, and provides more clarity about the activities, their direction and scope.

    Phase 2: Organizing and Designing the Governance Model Once the scope and model of DSU have been defined, the second phase should focus on sketching the strategic details into the specific dimensions and requirements associated with a governance model. In this phase, design principles, restricting and collaboration policies are defined in a more concrete manner. This phase will define the standard of operations, optimization of resources, potential shortcomings, the elements of change and challenges in implementation. This phase will also re-examine all the roles, service catalogs and funding models to ensure relevance.

    Phase 3: Implementing the DSU Once the strategy has been formulated, it needs to be converted into an operationally effective and actionable roadmap. To drive transformation, major stakeholders affected by the process should be identified. Once the stakeholders are identified, a matrix needs to be set up that will lay out a clear roadmap according to priority and accessibility levels. This avoids confusion and ensures that the digital transformation does not affect any major stakeholder commitments.

  • The promised benefits of a DSU cannot be realized if it does not contain the right skills and competencies.

    Key Considerations for DSU Implementation

    Implementing a DSU, even for the most agile organizations, is a challenge that will have a multi-faceted impact. Unlike other business unit setups, the peculiarity with DSU is that, by design, it impacts all parts of the organization. Hence, there will be significant challenges that surface from various functions across the organization. Key considerations for organizations include evaluation of budget impacts, management of people and communication, and setup of the actual DSU operation.

    Funding Model - a Critical Facet to Adoption Implementing a DSU affects P&L of various functions in organizations since certain services maybe shared or demerged from existing service catalogs. Various funding models and mechanisms can be applied for the initial set up cost of a new service.

    Local investments funding model: The major role of the DSU in this case is providing services delivered locally to all BUs. Here, no central funding is provided and one or many local entities decide to invest in their own systems. These systems can then be made available to the rest of the company by adding them to the service catalog (central App Store).

    Central investments funding model: In this model, the DSU manages the portfolio and delivers the projects. The central pays for the global part of the service (parameterization, multi-language, ), while the local entity pays for its own local project (local language, etc.). Central owns the solution so that it can be rolled-out to other countries or entities.

    Suppliers investments funding model: Here, the DSU acts as a supplier manager. In this model, the design, build and run of new service is outsourced to a supplier. The supplier is expected to fully support the investment. Over the long

    term, part of assets (physical and intellectual) are sold to the supplier and the proceeds from such sale are used to fund new projects.

    We believe that no funding model clearly outperforms the others from a DSU perspective. However, our experience shows that DSUs are typically initially funded by reallocating budget from existing IT legacy budgets to digital initiatives. The services are then proposed for free for a short period so that local business units get used to such operating model (the funding model of the DSU may evolve over time from pilot to scaled services).

    Managing People and Communications The promised benefits of a DSU cannot be realized unless it contains the right skills and competencies. Therefore, it is necessary to closely manage competencies both within and outside the DSU, and decide on investment areas. One of the major challenges organizations face while defining a governance model is in maintaining the balance of power amongst various entities. Organizations need to ensure that internal politics do not adversely affect the working environment or internal relationships during the various stages of transformation.

    Setting Up DSU Operations Service catalogs are typically shared across various functions. Therefore, when implementing a DSU, organizations need to carefully map hierarchy, visibility and information access at every stage to depict interdependencies. It is vital for organizations to comprehensively identify and define processes to ensure unambiguous KPIs for each entity. Organizations also need to identify necessary changes in current processes so that new processes can be implemented with minimal impact on supply chain efficiency and finances.

    A poorly implemented DSU will lead to inconsistent customer experience, incoherent brand image, intellectual property infringement, and increased implementation costs, resulting in IT security issues, making it difficult to measure the actual performance of these initiatives.

    In summary, a DSU is a catalyst to an organizations digital growth. A DSU can lower digital transformation costs by sharing costs and resources, and proactively driving adoption of new digital services. An effective DSU model helps organizations coordinate various digital initiatives, increase customer growth, drive employee connect, and create an overall positive brand experience to accelerate an organizations digital transformation.

    It is also pertinent to note that governance models are not static. They need to be constantly evolved as an organization climbs higher levels of maturity in its digital transformation journey. Organizations need to constantly revisit their governance model and ensure it is tweaked in order to stay relevant with changing priorities and implementation challenges. It is only when such dynamic and tailored approaches are taken that a DSU can show its true value and be the accelerator that it is designed to be.
