Digitization of Business Models

Digital technologies have significantly changed the business world in recent years. Companies must have the courage to break new ground in order to secure competitive advantages and survive in the new world.

Our approach



Digitization involves much more than just the digital transformation of products and services or the accumulation of large volumes of data. It requires a comprehensive transformation of processes, structures and business models affecting the entire company to explicitly adapt to the changing needs and expectations of customers and the market. Currently, many companies are confronted with the topic of digitization but do not know how to exploit the full potential of the digital transformation.



The target of the project assignment is to define a digital strategy that is individually tailored to the client, as well as to establish a sustainable business model and thus contribute to the client’s ability to survive in the market. During this, a digital vision for the future is strived for so that our clients are optimally equipped for the challenges and opportunities of digitization.



The consultants of ensign advisory support clients in the entire digitization process and help to develop and implement a strategic direction, focus areas and measures as well as digital innovations. To optimally tailor business activities to the market situation and client needs, we support our clients in assessing the maturity of their digital projects as well as the resulting potentials and risks. Together, we develop a strategic roadmap to accompany measures all the way to implementation.

Our consultants assist to employ new possibilities in data collection and analysis (Big Data Analytics) and thus to make improved data-based decisions. We also analyze the extent to which products and services can be virtually networked and new markets opened up. Our consulting team focuses on the interaction of Big Data, Cloud Solutions, Data Analytics, Data Enhancement, and many other technologies.

To ensure the applicability of the digitization strategy in the client’s organization, we also develop an IT requirements document that details the technical requirements for the digital business model. The requirements listed include usability, security, and integration and connectivity. With the help of these requirements, the IT infrastructure can be optimally designed by our consultants.



Due to the extensive and interdisciplinary expertise of our consultants, we can identify trends, potentials as well as risks at an early stage and thus support clients in the successful development and implementation of digital business models. In doing so, ensign advisory takes on the role of a link between IT and business – our consultants know what is possible on the technical side and what is needed on the client side. By working in established project teams, our consultants can bring about rapid change in process and organizational structures as well as leadership mechanisms and corporate culture. This offers our clients the possibility to keep up with the constantly increasing speed of innovation and to survive in the market.

Our core competencies
