Why effective digital transformation eludes many organisations

why effective digital transformation eludes many organisations

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The benefits of a digital transformation strategy are well understood by most organisations, however many projects that are undertaken fail to deliver the expected benefits. Chris Ellis from Nintex explains how using a process platform can overcome some of the most common digital implementation pitfalls.
Indeed, 80% of respondents to a McKinsey & Company survey on the subject revealed their organisations had undertaken digital transformation projects in recent years, yet only 16% felt the efforts had improved performance and enabled long-term change.
All too often, these failings occur as a result of ongoing process silos created by disjointed tools and technologies spread across an organisation. This shows that simply using the latest technologies is not enough. Effective digital transformation requires a complete change in organisational thinking.
Issues also arise because, while they might embrace modern digital solutions, many organisations continue to rely on outdated, inflexible IT models. This mismatch makes it difficult to streamline and manage IT systems, creating further complexities and inefficiencies.

In addition, there’s the issue of fragmented IT governance. Many firms suffer from IT sprawl and oversight of these systems is often ad hoc and sometimes even non-existent.
Within some organisations, there are also problems when it comes to …

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

[Stay on top of transportation news: Get TTNews in your inbox.]The digital transformation of the commercial transportation industry is setting the stage for further innovation that promises to unlock new levels of freight efficiency, technology executives said.

“If we look at trucking and logistics today, I fundamentally believe that we are at a crossroads,” Lior Ron, CEO of Uber Freight, said at an Oct. 23 educational session during American Trucking Associations’ online 2020 Management Conference & Exhibition.

Ron made the case that the ongoing digitization of global logistics and the freight economy is “equivalent in terms of potential” to the most important innovations that have redefined transportation throughout history — from the first roads constructed thousands of years ago to the invention of the steam engine and the rise of standardized shipping containers.

While each of those breakthroughs greatly improved the flow of goods, today’s technology developers are focused on addressing the pain points and inefficiencies that continue to afflict the industry, such as empty miles, underutilized assets and drivers losing hours of productivity while waiting at logistics facilities.

Uber Freight, for one, has set out to reduce waste in the trucking industry by automating manual processes and …

Schneider Electric Outlines Four Key Outcomes for Successful Digital Transformation | Al Bawaba

schneider electric outlines four key outcomes for successful digital transformation | al bawaba

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Digital transformation has the capacity to accelerate global, regional and national economic growth, promote job creation, and lead to the creation of new industries and technologies that will promote efficiency, agility and sustainability, according to research undertaken by Schneider Electric. The findings of Schneider Electric’s Global Digital Transformation Benefits Report, which were validated by Schneider Electric’s customers in the Middle East and Africa throughout 2020, highlighted that there are four universal results of any successful digital transformation: remote capabilities; resiliency; efficiency, and sustainability. These four elements are providing digitally-focused companies with a base for growth, even during times of crisis.

Speaking in the run up to the company’s annual Innovation Summit Middle East and Africa, which is to be held on the 28th October, Schneider Electric executives underlined how technology has given organizations the tools to become more resilient, efficient and capable whilst operating remotely.

Emerging nations have even more to gain from digital transformations. In 2018, research firm IDC predicted that by 2021 60 percent of emerging markets’ GDP would be based on digital products or services created from digital transformations. In the same year, professional services firm PwC estimated that the Middle East would stand to gain significantly from …

Enterprises have understood the importance of digitalization and information technology for uninterrupted productivity
CIOs acknowledge that the pandemic has bought forward the importance of risk management. They are faced with the question on what steps need to be taken by enterprises to improvise digital agility and capabilities both now and for the future.
Organizations are working to leverage the cloud platform as an operating model to help easy scaling, sharing of compute, networking, data protection, managing, and storage. The rapid adoption of digital transformation has increased the requirement for public and public cloud models.
Enterprise leaders agree that many organizations had opted for digital transformation without a clear long-term plan or vision of the end goal even before the pandemic. They warn that point-to-point solutions built the basis of process and software specific challenges are not sound investments for the best overall resolution.

Procurement Data Integration: A crucial step in digital transformation

procurement data integration: a crucial step in digital transformation

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Spend Matters welcomes this guest post from Sergii Dovgalenko, CPO at JSC Ukrainian Railway.
According to the International Data Corporation, 10% of digital data is structured, leaving 90% unused, unstructured and hidden.
During these times of Industry 4.0, many companies have substantially progressed on the path towards digital transformation. Fellow procurement colleagues operate their new shiny source-to-contract suites, P2P, and SRM tools. However, one critical aspect of digitalization sometimes remains forgotten or insufficiently addressed.
The procurement value chain spreads well beyond the S2C cycle — it starts from planning and goes all the way to supplier performance and risk management. Even if your chief architect is a genius, and managed to build the fully integrated digital pipeline of planning, budgeting, sourcing, contracting, material management, P2P, and SRM modules, where tasks freely flow from one section to another, the data integration may remain a challenge.
Defining procurement data integration
First, let’s provide the definition: Data integration is the process of combining data from different sources for analysis, business intelligence, reporting and feeding into other digital systems.
In e-procurement, each distinctive module consumes, generates and feeds loads of data. The free flow of data is not a given — sometimes, planning and budgeting …
