29 Jul The benefits of a digital transformation in your organisation
Technology, the lynchpin of our lives in the modern world – its presence in our lives is more important now than it has ever been before. Over recent years advancements in technology have been enormous – a lot of these advancements have made a remote work setting possible (which has come in handy over the last year with organisations around the globe being forced to conduct business in an out of the office setting).
As much as last year was predominantly a negative one for most, one positive that came from it was the realisation that a lot of business owners had – realising that technology has the ability to revolutionise your workplace if implemented and managed correctly.
What is a Digital Transformation?
A Digital Transformation is the process of adopting different digital technology with the intention of transforming services or businesses by replacing unnecessary manual processes or older digital technology with modern, capable, technology.
Don’t just throw yourself into a transition though – first, take your time to fully consider the impact it can have on the way you conduct business both operationally and in regard to compliance. On the other hand, not bothering to undertake one at all could be equally as damning, as the quality of service you can give customers, staff performance and general well-being (and subsequently your bottom line) could all be affected.
You must first dissect your own organisation into its component parts and understand what makes those in your industry – and your organisation, in particular – face on a daily basis. By doing this you make choosing the best digital solution a much easier task for yourself and you will more than likely get the best solution for the way you want to do things.
The challenges you face on a daily basis
The challenges you face daily will, of course, be different depending on the industry in which your business resides, but essentially the basic challenges we all face will be relatively the same.
The care of sensitive information
Every business in the world carries some sort of information about their clients, which is usually contact numbers, addresses, or bank details – it is entirely your responsibility to know where that data is kept, how it is used, and the protection of it. The care of sensitive data/information must be at the very top of your business challenges – there is no room for error where the care of sensitive data is concerned.
Regulatory and compliance obligations
Every industry has different regulatory bodies whose procedures they are lawfully required to adhere to, and all have rules and regulations that are hard to understand and comply with. It is imperative that you have the tools in place to guarantee compliance AT ALL TIMES or risk facing serious legal ramifications.
Unfit traditional IT
Standard IT equipment has the power to stunt the growth of your business, as you are unwillingly forcing your organisation to continue with work practices that aren’t as efficient as they could be. Some practices aren’t even designed with your organisation in mind and, therefore, won’t make things quicker, easier or more productive – which is the entire point of your business IT.
