2. Digital Transformation is creating connected business processes
Microsoft recently surveyed business owners and employees to understand their most challenging problems. Guess what the most common problem was? ...Lost productivity from teams working across multiple, independent systems that had no way of interacting with each other. It’s something both business owners and IT managers will be acutely familiar with and can lead to a host of associated inefficiencies: manual processes, errors due to duplicate entries and Lack of visibility which can hinder your decision making and put you on the back foot versus your competitors.
Digital transformation sounds like a buzzword… But it’s actually a relatively simple concept to understand - using digital technologies (mobile, social, analytics, the cloud) to transform how your people and your business works. Whilst less-mature digital businesses tend to focus on solving discrete problems with individual solutions, those that look to connect their processes, systems, people and data can gain a deeper insight into what’s happening in their business. This holistic view lets you anticipate what will happen - allowing you to respond swiftly and capitalise.
Digital transformation is about breaking free from the historical silos that exist between disparate CRM tools, ERP software systems, accounting applications, and other third-party technologies. It’s about seamlessly integrating productivity tools like email, office and data processing to empower your people to achieve more.
