Investing in digital transformation is soon becoming a necessity for businesses. It has been key in responding to the disruption of work and business ecosystems. Several businesses have ramped up efforts to meet this change in 2020. Technology is no longer a choice, but a fundamental business strategy. It is increasingly becoming interwoven into every part of an organization.
Adoption to advanced solutions is enabling better collaboration within and between organizations, more personalized ways of customer engagement, better employee innovation and productivity.
- Enabling employees to be more effective.
Employee engagement and productivity is a hot topic, especially when dealing with a remote workforce that may never fully return to the office. Businesses are inculcating new ways to improve productivity, with digital technology playing a pivotal role in helping employees become more effective.
The network’s role in supporting innovation — by enabling remote working and providing access to technology and services on demand — is critical to delivering an environment that enables employees to achieve.
2. Security is a priority.
Businesses are prioritizing security as it is one of the biggest challenges IT leaders are facing. The question of how to place more data at the network, while keeping data secure is an increasingly complex challenge. It requires rigorous enforcement around access, data compliance and shielding from attacks. Even the most stringent security measures are fruitless if an underperforming network forces staff to go elsewhere for flexibility or faster speeds. As we look beyond the pandemic-enforced remote working to hybrid models that incorporate workers’ different lifestyle needs, up-to-date security measures are especially important.
3. Making informed decisions.
Placing data and analytics at the center of a digital transformation strategy allows businesses to take advantage of big data. With the help of the right tools and analytics, businesses have access to in-depth data volumes, especially due to the Internet of Things. Data can now be converted into valuable business insights that can be used to make more informed, quicker decisions. Furthermore, using AI-based technologies is key to tapping into the potential of big data. Many innovations in the analytics space use advanced AI capabilities for existing applications, ensuring a swift and reliable rate of sifting through data, thus enabling informed decisions in a faster manner.
