You see it everywhere by now: Digital Transformation has disrupted and is still disrupting industries left and right. It’s not just a shift from physical to digital in terms of tools and systems, it’s also a complete overhaul of working mindset and philosophy driven by technological innovation.
In a short span of time we have seen industries rising and falling. Winners and losers are getting decided every minute and every second, with no breathing room given for industries not willing to adapt to the competition.
By this time, you should be looking on different options and solutions to slowly adapt to the changes. Still skeptical? Here are five areas in enterprises revolutionized by digital transformation.
Big data is insane. One minute it measures crucial data like audience engagement and on another it predicts the outcome of U.S. elections and gets it right. The ability to find patterns and trends through quantified consumer behavior is a power that everyone is trying to fully grasp until today.
Big data and digital transformation come hand-in-hand, you can even say that cannot exist without the other. If you are looking toward big data and harnessing the will of the people as your power, then by all means start transforming now.
Today, mobile is the internet and the internet is in everything. Conclusion? Mobile is everything and it’s where the competition lies. The pictures you see on social media? Taken from a mobile phone. Live sessions and broadcasts? Facebook Live and YouTube Live. Even the cabs you are riding now were contacted through mobile apps.
There’s no denying that the internet — with all of its years since its conception — was never as accessible as it is now with the explosion of the mobile market.
Put as much as you can into mobile. Emails, meetings, schedules, and even calendars and start gently integrating it with your everyday work. It will improve everything from accessibility to collaboration (which we will talk about more later).
Mobile is your gateway to digital transformation, all you have to do is to open it.
Age Gap and Skills Gap
There are no “generations” with digital transformation because of one simple reason: it disrupts everyone. It doesn’t specifically target people in their 20s, 30s, or 40s; it targets everyone. With that in mind, there’s really no “digital transformation expert” and anyone who tells you they are… is probably lying.
We are all beginners at this, which opens up a lot of potential especially in the skills department. Today we are seeing different skill sets penetrating industries they can’t touch before.
Managers now have access to tools for jobs that require developers and programmers. Start-up developers also have access to tools that ease the process of making apps (Like Game Maker for developing mobile and console games and Microsoft’s Kodu for teaching kids programming.)
With no specific demographic as its target, digital transformation is an open field with treasures ripe for the taking for those who would dare venture its undiscovered realm. It’s like the age of exploration once again, only now on the digital space.
With everyone on the internet through their mobile phones, even a guy on the way to work riding a bus can comment on a post about anything he sees in the internet. An ongoing debate about which is better between ham or bacon? Engage on it! Do it while taking your morning coffee on the way to work.
More than anything, the internet was always about engagement and establishing a two-way communication. Now with the coming of digital transformation, this gets amplified to new heights.
It’s no wonder why the term “viral” content came into play during the last years.
This level of engagement, combined with modern software for analyzing data and online behavior, is the foundation of big data analysis.
The Collaborative Workplace
Bringing it closer to home, digital transformation means a revamped collaborative workplace for your company. Tech One Global itself is utilizing tools like Office 365 and Enadoc to further push collaboration forward. Digital transformation is a disruption in a positive way: empowering the workforce so hard that they have to change their working habits to really grasp the potential of a digital and paperless working environment.
Meetings on the go, on the plane? Possible. Conferences with thousands of employees attending online? Also possible. Work in real time on a document, adjust schedules and monitor progress. All of these coupled with constant updates that add features tailored for what the consumers need ensure that no other time is perfect for a transformation than right now.
Frankly, there’s no reason now not to adapt. Prepare your enterprise for the future. Guidance? You just have to give industry advocates like Tech One Global a call and rest assured that you will have the greatest companion you could ever want for the digital transformation journey.
