My end-of-year column back in 2019 outlined how advancements in the use of new technologies — such as robotic process automation (RPA), artificial intelligence (AI) the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine learning (ML) — were likely to create massive data management problems. This largely came true as organizations across the spectrum struggled under the weight of massive volumes of data generated from digital transformation efforts.
Success in an unpredictable new year will be shaped by an organization’s ability to do a better job of “operationalizing” digital transformation initiatives through full-stack automation. This requires organizations to orchestrate workflows across advanced technologies, modern applications and distributed users to deliver powerful, data-driven, frictionless experiences.
Bottlenecks caused by poor data management practices will need to be identified and smoothed out through software, ensuring that accurate decisions are made in real time — whether automated by algorithms or made manually by users.
A Software-Based Approach To Enabling Digital Transformation
Modern low-code platforms will allow organizations to orchestrate these seamless, frictionless workflows with simple applications and tools that can be built and iterated quickly to connect and feed data across distributed entities.
This will speed time to market through increased development velocity, a reduction in tech debt and decreased operational complexity. Their ability to orchestrate workflows across the organization in real time will also enable business agility.
Nowsaday, almost every major companies and corporations are gradually applying technological solutions to their business. In order not to be left behind in this race, do not hesitate to contact our company – Opus Solution – a business consultant in Vietnam, specializing in providing potential technology solutions, especially Vietnam Office365 solutions to enhance your business performance.
Here are three digital transformation predictions to watch for in 2021:
1. Organizations Will Be Disappointed With Modern Applications
Modern applications are dynamic and agile, but they are in the cloud. And they can be spun up and down quickly to meet any demand, big or small.
However, they are not delivering on their promise — yet. Application experience continues to suffer in the “new normal” where applications, users, data and devices are increasingly distributed — flung far out from a centralized data center.
Organizations that can orchestrate workflows between these distributed entities will be successful. Companies that don’t meet these requirements will continue to spin their wheels.
2. Organizations Will Need To Focus On Data And Software In Tandem
2020 was all about data: Organizations were told they needed to get a handle on the mountains of information being generated by digital transformation.
But better data management is only part of the solution. In the year ahead, organizations will need to develop their way out of the problem. All software will have to connect disparate entities in fluid, orchestrated workflows that automate processes and deliver business agility.
How efficiently and effectively organizations put their data to work with full-stack automation will determine whether they are able to improve modern application experiences.
3. Low-Code Will Help Resolve The Software Backlog
Who is going to develop the tools that orchestrate these experiences? The answer is everyone. Full-stack automation is powered by users’ ability to use modern low-code platforms to build, test and spin up dynamic, agile software that orchestrates experiences across distributed entities.
These users can have little or no coding experience because low code gives them the flexibility they need to resolve bottlenecks and quickly take advantage of shifting customer needs and market conditions.
However, low code by itself is not enough as power must complement speed. In some cases, low code can exacerbate problems by creating even more disconnected applications. To prevent this, the low code needs to be powerful, with the ability to orchestrate data and modern tools, like AI, as that’s the only path forward that will bear fruit.
Empower Users With Development Agility
Organizations need to embrace full-stack automation in 2021 if they want to fully take advantage of innovative technologies such as AI, ML, IoT and RPA as part of their digital transformation initiatives.
However, the ability to orchestrate experiences across these advanced technologies, modern applications, and users in the “new normal” requires the ability to shorten the development cycle from months to weeks and days. The only way to do that is to empower users themselves — the people in the field closest to workflows — to build, test, roll out and iterate simple yet powerful apps that eliminate bottlenecks and connect distributed entities.
