Enable Digital Transformation

We work with organisations to enable digital transformation by addressing crucial skills gap and empowering your workforce with digital fluency, data analysis, data engineering, DevOps and software engineering skills. Our approach focuses on developing business-ready expertise, fostering a culture of innovation and organisational buy-in, developing your own in-house specialists to enhance your digital capabilities.

Bridge the skills gap and transform your workforce

For decades, digital transformation has remained an organisational challenge, becoming a never-ending project. At the heart of achieving digital fluency and driving change is a singular linchpin – your people. 

The pressing issue of digital transformation stems from more than just the need to keep up with AI and rapid technological change; it is about recognising the skills gaps in technical expertise, widespread digital fluency and change leadership. This skills gap is a significant factor in the failure of 69% of digital transformation projects (McKinsey), suggesting that a greater focus on the human aspect of digital transformation is required. Addressing this issue becomes a strategic imperative, crucial for fostering innovation and customer experience excellence. 

Why digital transformation cannot wait

Digital transformation is urgent. Many organisations face workforce skepticism about the need for new digital skills, yet global spending on digital technologies is projected to hit $3.9 trillion by 2027 (IDC). It’s not a question of if, but how your organisation will adapt to the digital era.

Our case studies: discover how organisations excel with our skills training

We embarked on our data analytics journey a couple of years ago. We had many enthusiastic and talented analysts, but they were spread across different departments without a centralised data warehouse. It has been a brilliant journey, setting up a small centre of excellence, bringing Hallmark along for the ride, and delivering substantial value to the business. Our primary goal is to make everyone across the entire business aware of how they use data, encourage them to optimise its usage, utilise existing tools, and understand how to extract even more value from it.

Connecting the Dots: The Journey to a Data-Driven Future at Hallmark
Data is a topic that can be quite elusive and it’s incredibly rare for individuals, especially those not in a “data” role to invest in their development as the day job takes over. This apprenticeship programme has uplifted both the capability and confidence of each apprentice, in turn adding immense value to our business. Corndel’s support, guidance, technical expertise and credibility have been instrumental throughout our journey and we’re looking forward to building on the successful of first programme with our next group of Hallmarkers in 2025.

The Apprenticeship Advantage: Unlocking Tech Talent at Chubb Fire & Security
“Our apprentice, Farhan, went away on the Corndel boot camp and came back a different person. Suddenly, all the technical jargon we were throwing around, he understood. We had planned to start with basic test projects, but it became apparent that we were wasting time. He needed to be challenged with more complex tasks. The difference was significant."
James Atherton, Development Manager at Chubb Fire and Security
“I understand how to make data-based decisions. Before, we never really based our decisions on data at all; it was very much gut instinct.”
