Innovation, flexibility and acceleration = competitive business advantage
The accelerated use of new technologies and data are key to drive successful digital transformation and gaining competitive business advantage. Which is why executives place a premium on innovation, flexibility and acceleration in today’s business world.
Digitally, innovation is technology-enabled and data-driven. Whether businesses are digitally native or legacy analog – they all are focused on leveraging big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence to redefine their business processes, personalize the customer experience or monetize data. To achieve this requires integrating data across multiple systems; migrating compute and data storage to scalable cloud platforms; and expanding access to business-ready, up-to-date information to everyone in the organization.
However, successful innovators also require flexibility: flexibility to cost-efficiently unlock and provide governed access to business data in systems, such as SAP and others; flexibility to choose any cloud compute and storage platform based on their companies’ needs; and flexibility to scale with big data machine learning models. Organizations can innovate at scale only within an environment of flexibility and a lack of cost barriers.
Finally, the speed of innovation has accelerated. In the past, businesses could devote years to bringing new products and services to market. But now, they must do so in months, weeks or even days. A shortening of the development lifecycle pushed further due to the pandemic, during which businesses had to reinvent their human capital management models, go-to-market strategies, and supply-chains and manufacturing strategies. Small businesses had to shift store sales to e-commerce; the largest of retailers had to reconfigure their global supply-chains and logistics; the more efficient manufacturers had to plan for return-to-production worker safety. Responsive, automated data platforms are the key to this agility with technology capabilities, such as no-code or low-code application development; more configuration versus manual coding; and active intelligence that makes continuous, up-to-date information available at the speed of business.Insightful Analytics are fully committed to helping organizations accelerate their full innovation and analytical potential.
