Digital transformation (DX) is undoubtedly one term that not just IT geeks but everyone else must have come across at least on several search engines. If you think it’s yet another subject that shines and dies on an online search engine, let me remind you that DX is going to stay here until majority IT companies, at least, leverage all the technologies that pull them out of the vicious trap of legacy IT systems. There are two technologies that are constantly making digital transformation a reality—convergence technology, and disruptive technology. A true digital transformation is the systemic change of processes and movement from siloed department to platforms that spread across the enterprise to enrich customer experiences. In other words, it is successful only with a true convergence of people, process, and technology, a transformation from within.
Read on to know more about these two technologies and how they are leading to digital reality.
With rapid technological advancement, many things are constantly popping-up for making our lives sophisticated. Two decades ago when mobile phones phased into the market, they were just fascinating little devices aimed at dialing and receiving calls from distant places. Today, mobile phones are more than what they were earlier. The technology has brought internet and mobile together to provide us with a different experience. What do we call this major difference? Any idea? Well, it’s the trending buzzword convergence technology. To put it in simpler words, when two different technologies are clubbed for an unmatched experience, we tag them under convergence technology.
Disruptive technology has a heroic role to play in digital reality. Anything that’s innovative and replaces the legacy system can rightly be tagged as a disruptive technology. The emergence of word-processors replaced the typical typewriters. Similarly, digital calculators have replaced the traditional abacus.
The blockchain is a new disruptive technology, which is all set to change the game. It is undoubtedly expensive but gives immense scope for your data to be secure and transparent. Once your information is recorded, it can’t be altered. Giant companies that understood the merits of blockchain are leveraging this technology. Sooner or later, when blockchain becomes affordable to even SMEs, it’s sure to replace the existing corporate database.
Cloud computing is yet another trending technology that’s cost-effective and helps companies to achieve higher ROI by deploying key workforce in more intellectual projects. According to the Cloud Industry Forum, at least 72% of companies will embrace cloud solutions by 2020. Experts opined that cloud computing is a key disruptive technology, and one of the foundations of digital transformation.
Internet of Things (IoT) and digital transformation go hand in hand. Any device that can get connected to the internet becomes part and parcel of IoT. Apparently, the healthcare industry is the first one to make the best use of IoT technologies. With the help of tiny gadgets, healthcare professionals are continuously monitoring the patient’s health, and are even getting alerts in case of an accidental fall etc. Earlier, patients would have to call up and elucidate the situation or rush to the hospital regularly for checkups. Now, IoT is used across various industries for better connectivity. IoT is undoubtedly a path-breaking technology that rightly finds a special place in the disruptive technology.
Conclusion: Convergence of disruptive technology has so much potential to transform the enterprises. Now that cloud, IoT, and blockchain are trending technologies, it is the need of the hour for every company to leverage these technologies for seamless operations.
