Most businesses consider digital transformation as a means to measure short-term performance and miss the goal of transformation. As a result, rather than focusing on rapid successes, companies should take a more long-term approach. Non-traditional measures, such as new registrations on digital platforms or online interactions, offer a better approach to scale an organization's digital transformation strategy in this way.

Although digital transformation is a team operation, differences in how technologists and business leaders describe terminology can lead to stumbling blocks, delays, and poor implementation. As a result, if a tech team is working on a product that only works on a specific machine configuration and has a small number of features, the business team is looking for an app that can support all prospective consumers.This kind of discrepancy can result in a lot of awkward post-release discussions. As a result, phrases like marginally doable and concurrent must be referring to a group so that the transformation team may arrive simultaneously set of standards.
- Inadequate Funding
Like other IT projects, most digital transformation initiatives fail to owe to a lack of enough funding.

As a result, businesses must hire people with the necessary abilities, even if they hire outside support for the digital transformation project.

One of the reasons businesses began their digital transformation was to maintain market share in the face of increasing competition. A company that has to drive change can't afford delays since a digitally-driven organization is agile and moves quickly. So, when possible, optimize corporate procedures and automate time-consuming operations.They must also keep in mind that there is no end in sight because IT modernization is a never-ending process.
