How do you utilise IT as a service to achieve your operational targets?
There is currently a great deal of material explaining how digital maturity can make your company more competitive. Digitalisation changes business models, which means companies have to focus more closely on digital transformation in order to future-proof their operations.
The workplace is influenced by digital development
To a great extent, the new workplace is being transformed into a virtual setting, with greater mobility and potential for increased productivity. At a modern workplace, you shouldn’t need to spend time wondering how technology works, or what will happen if a workstation or parts of your IT environment no longer function. A modern workplace is delivered as a service to ensure the working day runs smoothly, and is flexible enough to be easily scaled up and down in line with the needs of the business. By using IT as a service, you can always gain full control of the monthly cost.
Digitalisation of the workplace raises the bar when it comes to technical solutions
The growing requirement of core operations to gain access to data or processing power can lead to major challenges, as companies have a greater need for a fully operational IT environment. There are often major issues in control and follow-up, which can lead to a lack of security, an inability to make progress with digital transformation or higher costs.
The report Strategy, not Technology, Drives Digital Transformation reveals how companies that succeed with digital transformation have employees with a firm grasp of the management group’s digital know-how. Management don’t have to be digital experts, but they must have the ability to convey to employees in tangible terms how digitalisation increases the value of the company. While technological solutions play a big role, strategically choosing the right solution is the most important consideration. There should be focus on innovation and change management in which security, customer experience and value creation are key components of the business strategy.
With new ways of working and the need for tools with greater flexibility, an advisor is often required who can combine the business strategy with the technology that underpins development. By choosing a partner that delivers specialised skills in the field, and can deliver solutions as a function and service, your company will be able to stay one step ahead.
IT that supports your business
A reliable partner who can help you to streamline and modernise your existing environment – and also understands how IT can support your operations and business – could be fundamental to the continued development of your company. The journey of digitalisation has just begun, and entails a high degree of complexity which will only increase. Attempting to manage, integrate and use data in an optimal way is placing brand new demands on companies. IT skills will be fundamental to the ability of every company to survive and pursue a flexible business strategy moving forward.
Outsourcing the operation and workplace of your business to an external supplier makes it easier to adapt to changing market conditions, and focus fully on your core activities, as you can entrust your IT partner to take full control of the technology in a simple, reliable and profitable way. With the right choice of partner, you’ll also benefit from a strategic collaboration that provides help and support in your digital journey.
