All digital transformations revolve around data. Indeed, as organizations seek to accelerate their ongoing digital transformation initiatives, they seek to extract even more value from their data to drive leadership through better decision-making, improve customer satisfaction, win competitive advantages, and help grow the business.
DataOps Services for Digital Transformation
IDC predicts that by 2023, 52 percent of global GDP will come from products and services delivered by digitally transformed enterprises. Gartner reports that 91 percent of enterprises are already involved in some sort of digital initiative. This means that organizations that are already digitizing are paving the way for a new business future—commerce, production, and innovation. However, digitization is only half the battle; the other half (i.e., digitalization) comes from investing in understanding those digitally driven insights and applying those learnings to drive business growth.
In the face of suffocating market competition and evolving customer demands, data and operationalizing that data are the key differentiators in market leadership today. As a result, the distinction between market leaders and followers boils down to this: data operations. Data operations not only play an important role in enabling ongoing digital transformation initiatives but also serve as a foundation for faster, more informed innovation, fueling organizational growth and propelling businesses ahead of their competitors, where data is at the heart of all of these efforts.
Digital Transformation Stakeholders
To determine where your organization is moving on the digital transformation roadmap, you must first identify who is driving it and who is involved. The latter is a simple guess because it is, essentially, everybody in your organization.
Digital transformation is not only defined as the transformation of an organization’s digital operations; it also is defined as an organizational cultural shift to realize its full potential. Collaboration amongst the key stakeholders helps to map out and define digital transformation strategies and efforts and communicate goals and objectives—to the technical and professional teams—who work in tandem with business units to build new architectures and technologies. Data, the sign for business success in the digital age, is at the heart of these digital transformation efforts. As a result, incorporating DataOps services into your digital transformation efforts from the beginning is critical.
As the market becomes more competitive and business leaders look for new ways to grow and expand their businesses, data will continue to play an important role in achieving those lofty digital transformation goals. Companies should achieve the ultimate goal of data empowerment by gaining intelligence from their data—all employees having simplified, secure levels of access to the data. High-quality data they need to do their jobs—enhancing operational efficiency, improving business outcomes, and fueling business transformation at scale.
