Digital Evolution

Digital Evolution and Data Processing Transformations

As the digitalisation of the workplace continues, technological advancements mean many of today’s most common jobs are evolving at a rapid pace. Similarly, a lot of new, previously manual tasks are becoming automated and many more previously unheard of tasks are starting to emerge. As businesses seek to keep up with these changes, it’s important that they have the infrastructure to make the most of these exciting opportunities.

To keep pace with rapidly evolving technologies, a strong digital commitment is required at all levels. Specific technologies will continue to develop in the workplace, but organisations will need to implement a continuous cycle of adaptation, testing, measurement and review to ensure they are prepared for future technological progress.

But this movement is of digital evolution and not revolution. Revolution brings about radical change, while evolution is a slower change over a longer period of time. It’s evolution, not revolution, because:

  1. Most businesses are already at least partially digital
  2. There isn’t a finite end to becoming digital

Most businesses already have an existing stack of digital processes, mobile platforms, web apps and a level of task automation. These systems, however, are often built on older technologies, powered by an aging infrastructure and in need of an architecture overhaul. Many will lack true integration with the rest of the organisation’s processes.

Additionally, the existing digital environments often lack a real strategy and processes and apps are therefore, completely disparate and rarely support the core goals of the business.

Digital evolution as an applied business approach provides both the model and cultural organisational shift to ensure a business can be continually successful in the new digital marketplace. Even when a business reaches its first set of digital business objectives this newly created state is actually just the first step on a much longer, more robust journey of change.

The emergence of new technologies and trends towards automation and robotisation in the production, manufacture and transportation of goods and services will continue. Production, manufacturing, warehousing and logistics sectors will transform and while is likely to change from today, it does not automatically imply that it will become more difficult.

Moving towards a robotised or automated system will mean a continued, if not increased, demand for technical capacity, particularly in operational functions, as well as a continued demand for integration to provide efficient environments.

Digital Evolution is the conscious choice of business to accelerate their organisational rate of digital adoption and change, through the simultaneous creation, renovation, and integration of digital products, alongside the creation of their supporting platforms and infrastructure.
