Top digital transformation leaders are taking a data-first approach – all actions throughout the organization and optimizing your business come from insightful analytics. Unfortunately, organizations that rely solely on core systems like ERPs are missing an opportunity to have information at their fingertips. Core systems can lack real-time insights to drive decisions. Further, data can end up siloed in inaccessible locations, leaving organizations craving information they cannot find.
Leaders are moving beyond the ERP and focusing on a Digital Operations Platform – a platform that is adaptive, AI based, and accessible. By uniting your approach to digital transformation around data, you will always be acting from an informed perspective. This is also a great way to add an agility layer – giving your team capabilities above and beyond traditional ERP systems.
Commitment from leadership can make or break digital transformation efforts. As Quickbase CIO Deb Gildersleeve notes, buy-in needs to start with a strong commitment from leadership. With empowerment from the top-down, people across your business will understand the importance of this effort.
When leaders are committed, your entire organization will understand the importance of your efforts and empower your entire organization to take on digital transformation. And with the right technology on board, the message from the top down will encourage individual teams to have ownership over their own business processes.
