Digital transformation can be defined as the acceleration of business activities, processes and competencies to fully leverage the changes and opportunities of digital technologies. Digital transformation is often associated with a pure Technology transformation (i.e. moving to AWS or Azure), but for it to be fully transformative, technology should be utilized to perform business transformations.
Digital transformation is not about technology alone. It occurs at the intersection of people, business and technology. Success comes when organizations can effectively use data created by or through technology in a way that enables business change to occur dynamically. The key to this success is creating dynamic business analytics.
Business analytics is a powerful tool in today’s marketplace. Across industries, organizations are generating large amounts of data which, in turn, has heightened the need for tools to interpret and analyze that information. Business analytics can be a valuable resource when approaching an important strategic decision.
Trianz understands these opportunities and the potential problems that can come along with it if the scope of work and implementation is not executed correctly. We also understand the importance of speed and efficiency in today’s fast changing world.
