There are many challenges in front of you. Consider at least the following three:
* Commodity trap: If your product is easy to replace the evaluation criteria are reduced to the price.
* Security has to be considered from the beginning and is an ongoing task over the entire lifecycle. 100% secure? That is not possible and moreover, not affordable. Therefore, making only the data secure. That is a big effort actually. But it is worth it.
* The winner takes it all: The winner is not always the first one but a winner has a market share which is huge and impossible to attack with a me too strategy. Take Facebook and Google for example.
Focus on your customer. Which is the added value for him? Technology is always an enabler and never sufficient for itself. Take into account as well your ecosystem - all over the company and sector boarders. Even more double check the distributed value chain. What is your core and what can be handled by a partner? Bear in mind: "90% of all business model innovations are recombinations", as said by Oliver Gassmann who is a professor at University of St. Gallen and a member of Zühlke Group's board of directors. The world is too complex and too fast to do it all on your own.
The base for the transformation is the culture. If the culture is not ready for this change you will not succeed.
