Digital transformation (DX) is the use of digital technologies to create new — or modify existing — business processes, culture, and customer experiences to meet changing business and market requirements. The integration of digital technology into all areas of your business fundamentally changes how you operate and deliver value to your customers.
Our world is more digital than ever, and we all expect that technology innovations will work for us, making our lives easier, our customers happier, business more profitable, and so on. But what happen when the technology is missing or doesn’t work for us? The sentiment is frustration (or “digital disappointment”). The unavoidable truth is that organizations change more slowly than technology. As a consequence, companies must always invest in technology to reinvent themselves and satisfy customers expectations.
You see, sooner or later your systems become legacy systems. And they will not work properly anymore, due to market changes, new business requirements, or high cost of maintenance.
“When digital transformation is done right, it’s like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, but when done wrong, all you have is a really fast caterpillar.”
George Westerman | Principal Research Scientist with the MIT Sloan Initiative on the Digital Economy
Beneath Digital Transformation
As a business owner or decision maker, you want to deliver new products and services as fast as possible, with lower costs, and you also want your customer engaged while having enhanced experiences. Right? How can you accomplish all these challenging goals? By breaking down your core corporate applications in small components that can work together, so you can deploy new functionalities or change existing ones by reusing the components or rewiring them in a different way. These small components are the so called microservices – the building blocks of your new digital applications; they will help you save a lot of time and money because:
- They can be reused, so you develop once and use many times across several applications
- They are not dependent upon a specific coding language
- They can run everywhere because of their underlying technology
- They are connected via APIs (application programming interfaces) that are publicly available, relatively easy to use, and usually very well documented
- You can run microservices from thousands of different technology providers to compose your applications
We can help you implement new microservices, new applications and new APIs, while getting the most from your legacy systems and existing infrastructure.
To guide you wisely throughout this journey, we start with a strategy and a technology to build a solid foundation for the present and future needs.
The adoption of a Microservices Framework in your organization will allow you achieve greater business agility with lower costs due to the inherent granularity and reusability of those small building blocks.
The world has shifted from Industrial Age to Information Age and it’s not enough to produce great products or provide great services. The rapidly expanding of smart phones, mobile devices and technology platforms created a myriad of new channels and opportunities for interacting with your clients.
You just need a trustworthy technology partner with the skills and capabilities to connect to your customers effectively. We have the skill set and market awareness necessary to help you.
Are You Catching Up or Leading the Way?
Are you still relying on outdated systems to shoulder your core operations? Not working in a cloud environment? Do you still have that wiring room with computers and thousand of miles of spaghetti-style cables stealing your precious space? Are your lines of business waiting for everything instead of taking strategic decisions based on reliable data analytics? If you answer yes to any of these questions, you are ready to start a digital transformation project to change the face and future of your business for good.
We favor innovation rather than disruption by enabling you to follow a path of incremental innovation. The transition from status quo to the new technology follows a roadmap always mitigating risks in order to have a stable work environment with certainty and confidence for your people.
