12 Jan SUCCEEDING IN THE NEW ERA OF SMART
Clients and corporate partners often ask us: What does it take to succeed in an age of digital transformation, the Internet of Things, and cloud technology – noting that as many as 75 billion devices will soon be connected and talking to one another? It’s an interesting question to consider, noting that technology has become smarter, more affordable and easier to implement than ever, even as organizations now have access to growing mountains of information, given the sheer number of devices that are now connected to the cloud and the 10,000X or so larger volume of information that’s set to be generated in the next 3-5 years or so.
But how do you stay one step ahead of the curve and maintain competitive advantage in a world where customer habits and competitive landscapes are constantly shifting, countless touchpoints and interactions now occur online and off – and competitors have access to the same tools as well? Automation and intelligence hold the answers you need to quickly analyze data, surface key insights, and democratize data science by giving anyone the power to go from analytics to actionable strategy at a glance – tasks which an automation-first approach can help you make simpler by enabling anyone in an organization to help deliver both evolutionary and revolutionary breakthroughs at enterprise scape. By leveraging the user-friendly and unified analytics platform (which provide a host of tools designed to help unleash corporate transformation and growth), business leaders at every level and in every department can now gain unparalleled insights into the shape of an organization, quickly discover how and where to optimize operations, and identify and predict new opportunities and trends before rivals can react as well.
In effect, as many complexities as technology now introduces, and the growing scale at which it’s forced companies to operate, you can also leverage the power of technology to stay one step ahead of changing markets and customer tastes – and, by proxy, one step ahead of the curve as well. So as you go about plotting your strategic plan for the years ahead, don’t forget to incorporate new IT innovations throughout your strategic roadmap as well.
