In a world where competition is fiercer than ever, it’s vital for businesses to evolve and adapt to their environment if they wish to remain competitive and push their performances to the limit.
Technology is a crucial tool in ensuring that businesses thrive, and digital transformation lies at the very heart of this evolution process.
When used correctly, technology can help reduce costs, increase efficiency, improve customer engagement and satisfaction, reduce environmental impact, make predictions, reduce risks, and much, much more.
From retail to healthcare, to public services, manufacturing and industry, there’s no limit to where adoption of technology can help make a positive impact.
The examples of the power of digital transformation below are just a small selection of what is possible when technology is adopted and used correctly. From cloud computing to big data analysis, IoT implementation, machine learning and more, the sky truly is the limit.
Building a better future for manufacturers
Industry 4.0 is digitally transforming everything around us, right now. With connected technology, advanced analytics and mixed reality simulation with technologies like HoloLens, our factories will never look the same, with 40% of operational processes becoming self-healing and self-learning by 2022.
Transforming healthcare in Europe
Europe needs a health check. We have rapid population growth, by almost two million a year, combined with an aging population – an increase in over 65s by 2.3% over the last ten years (Eurostat). Our healthcare services are under strain like never before, as demand rapidly outstrips supply.
The bank of the future
A great customer experience starts with motivated, productive and truly empowered employees. The way employees collaborate with one another and their customers is changing rapidly, and banks must create workplaces that embrace digital innovation and give their employees the tools they need to excel.
How technology can help reduce our impact on the planet
All around the globe, people are facing the question of how to grow and thrive with fewer resources. By 2030 almost 60 percent of our global population will live in cities. How can technology help ensure we can carry on growing going forward?
The Medical Revolution
Medical care is the beating heart of any society. From hearing aids to rehabilitation, life-saving operations to childbirth, we’ve all seen doctors and clinicians perform incredible acts of healing. But what if, using technology, medical care could prevent disease, injury and surgical errors from happening in the first place?
The Digital Transformation of the Retail Industry
The way we shop is changing rapidly, and the role of the retailer has changed forever. Technology has disrupted the traditional, established business models of the retail industry. In the past, having one channel was enough to drive sales, but today, retailers need to do much more.
Has your city got what it takes?
Not just another political buzzword, a ‘smart city’ has become something tangible that can vastly improve our lives. Any city properly supported by technology can transform– today – into a smart, intelligent ecosystem, capable of engaging with its citizens, empowering its employees, and optimising operations.
A revolution is happening in education. The instigator? Technology. Just as workforces around the world are being transformed by devices and the cloud, so too are our classrooms – from kindergarten all the way to university research labs.
