Digital transformation

Digital transformation is one of the industry’s biggest buzzwords at the moment. In the digital economy People, Business, and “Things” are becoming more and more connected in worldwide operating companies as well as in small, regional companies and in all our daily lives. Your existing business models are changing and you need to become an intelligent, digital business. Digital business is built on new computing infrastructure – the enablers are Analytics, Big Data, Cloud & Mobile Technologies accelerated by Internet of Things (IoT), advances in Machine Learning and Innovations like Blockchain. These technologies give your company the ability to change your business models, and create new products and services in the digital economy. ERP implementation, on the other hand, is a term that is becoming a bit dated and has lost a bit of its luster. Digital transformations are more focused on delivering breakthrough business value via innovative new technologies. In reality, core ERP systems simply replace traditional back-office functions, while true digital transformations leverage a variety of technologies – including ERP. Transforming the way employees work and adding value to the organisation working towards evolving organisational culture.
