The digital realm has become one of the most important drivers for businesses.
Digital transformation, or the process of digitisation for an organisation occurs by actively shaping the organisations’ long-term strategic roadmaps. Digital transformation quite often is the catalyst for driving business process efficiencies, cost optimisation and revenue generation and is as strategic in nature as it is technical. There is a big human aspect to digital transformation as well, industry leaders agree that most digital transformations fail due to low adoption rates across the organisation which need to be counteracted by having a robust change management strategy in place.
Digital transformation is a broad term and can be as simple in concept as going paperless and as complex as implementing AI and machine learning algorithms to monitor stock levels in a warehouse and anticipate customer demand for accurate replenishment. While the technology landscape is ever-evolving, there are certain trends at the forefront of digital transformation in the Middle East such as artificial intelligence, automation of processes, virtual or augmented reality, internet of things, cloud computing and data analytics.
