Digital transformation in big multinational companies and promising startups alike has never been more important. The COVID-19 pandemic has especially necessitated organisations to adopt digital transformation infrastructure and technologies in commercial success.
A top 20 digital innovations report reveals that many business leaders have managed to sustain digital transformation, and we are going to consider three of such leaders as Shakeel Butt, Fumbi Chima, and Jon Braithwaite.
For Shakeel, it all started with joining Green Flag, an insurance-based roadside assistance firm, in 2018. As the Chief Technology Officer, he led a comprehensive front-to-back remodelling. T
The reason for this project, on Shakeel’s part, was the need to remodel the IT network completely. He then presented a transformation plan for the firm which had its grounds on a native-cloud ecosystem built from scratch. This means that the whole stack would be serverless, API-driven, and with stateless microservices.
How successful is this initiative? Very successful actually. Today, the platform is live, and Shakeel is replacing each aspect of the value chain of the business world with a native-cloud solution. Today, Green Flag now operates as an agile cloud computing franchise. Consequently, the firm can now swiftly roll out new features to provide its customers with a unique experience.
He was the CIO of Adidas, Germany, for two years before joining BECU, a credit union based in Seattle as their CIO. For Fumbi, the major reason for implementing cloud computing technologies as a prime digital transformation project was the need to satisfy client’s; she always held client value in high esteem.
Fumbi always stated the need to put understanding clients’ needs ahead of anything else. When you understand what your client or customer needs, you are then in a better place to find solutions to meet those needs.
The possibility of “trial and error” is reduced. Consequently, Fumbi spearheaded a change incorporating a hyper-product-centric operational style at Adidas to realize her goal. Since data was key to serve its customers better, Adidas adopted it, especially in developing all-encompassing client avatars.
This brilliant innovation has led to higher levels of personalized products that are more particular to customers’ needs. The capacity of Adidas to manufacture products that factor in customer needs increased greatly, and Fumbi is on the verge of emulating this technique to achieve even better results at BECU.
Jon Braithwaite was appointed the CIO of Compass Group UK & Ireland in 2019, and he has since embarked on the journey to digitally transform their business operations to provide excellent services. Jon’s goal is to make Compass Group a data-driven franchise that provides clients with excellent services.
Jon started by restructuring and migrating essential IT systems to the Cloud system. This was the first major step of Jon in adopting the native cloud for IT revitalisation. He used Amazon Web Services to connect different IT systems, and this gave lead ways for important customer service innovations.
The result – Compass Group has been able to respond as fast as possible to customer and business exigencies using the multifarious digital solutions adopted by Jon.
Digital Transformations in Cloud Native Processes is Important for Your Sustained Business Success.
If you feel that digital transformations such as the adoption of modern native cloud technologies are not necessary for your business, you are wrong. For sustained business success, you need to adopt cloud technology. Let’s check some benefits therein.
Operational Costs Minimised.
Do you think setting up an IT system like the native cloud infrastructure brings your business unnecessary costs? Have a rethink. This system rather saves you costs.
Office activities like record keeping, accounting, and other activities that would have been done manually can now be automated. You save yourself the cost of employing labour for these activities. More so, automation gives you better accuracy and reliability; you eliminate the diminishing return factor in labour.
With the alarming rate of data-based fraud today, cloud computing is a very effective way to keep your business and clients safe. With this technology, you can store your business data in an encrypted and secure database. There are also tools for domain monitoring that can help you with the detection of typosquatting activities.
The truth is that big businesses and franchises most times have communication glitches. This is in connection to emails, messages, updates, and other business information alike. Cloud computing services help connect your IT systems in such a way that communication is enhanced, and there is less of a glitch in the system.
It is all evident. Digital transformation is the way to sustained business success in today’s commercial world. You snooze, you lose. Do not be left behind as the need for implementing these changes is ever-present.
