Ongoing Digital Transformation Keeps You Ready for the Unknown
The world has changed so much in the last year and I am willing to bet it is going to look even different in another year. Both personal and business lives changed, and in both aspects, we are trying to navigate best we can in the new reality of the unknown. The Covid-19 pandemic redefined the digital transformation and caused it to accelerate at speeds we could not have predicted. Businesses all over the world had to take drastic steps in a short period of time to allow their business operations to continue.
The digital transformation is going to continue in 2021, with the majority of businesses prepared to continue investing in modern technology. Technology has proven to allow businesses to be more resilient in the face of unpredictable challenges.
What items should your business evaluate to determine where you take your digital transformation journey next? Start with your business processes. Draw and re-evaluate your business processes. Where can you become more efficient? Are you lacking in areas where technology can fill a void? Is there output you are not receiving from your ERP system? What cloud platform are you using and what is your overall cloud strategy?
The organizations that survived the pandemic did so because they leveraged modern day technologies that made it possible for them to adjust how they did business. The digital transformation opened many eyes to the possibilities using the latest and greatest technologies can bring to a business. Adaptability, scalability, availability, resilience are now expected of all technologies you use.
Data analytics, business intelligence, machine learning, artificial intelligence and 5G are just some examples of technologies that are no longer pipe dreams for businesses. They are being adopted all over the world by businesses of all sizes. Why? Because the digital transformation of 2020 allowed businesses to realize that technology advancements are not out of reach. It only took a global pandemic for everyone to realize it.
