Uncovering Business Value Through Automation
Innovating with a Digital Business Automation Strategy
In the previous article, we distinguished two of the most important practices of a Digital Business- Digitalization and Digital Transformation. These practices have led organizations’ thinking away from the ‘why’ or ‘if’ and to the ‘how’ of Digital adoption. It is no longer a consideration but rather the optimal solution for businesses survival, growth, and success. Digital enables organizations to overcome challenges in their industries by designing efficient frameworks to improve operations and demonstrate incredible value, through innovative business processes. As we’ve identified the importance of Digitalization and Digital Transformation, we can dive deeper into another extension of the practice known as, Digital Automation.
Focusing on the infrastructure and efficiencies of traditional business structure, Digital Automation enables companies to visualize, understand, and improve processes automatically, without human interference by adopting new technologies. In turn they can quickly respond to changing market conditions and be receptive to customers’ demands while generating substantial revenue.
How it's being used today
Digital Automation significantly influences how organizations within various industries conduct their operations and benefit from automating certain capabilities. From marketing to the hiring and training of employees, the goal of a Digital Business Automation strategy is simple: improve efficiency with a rise in productivity in decreased time for optimal results.
E-mail marketing campaigns, digital advertising, customer segmentation are all results of automated tools, which users can leverage to help drive initiatives and reach the right target groups for successful outcomes. Automating on-boarding and training allows companies to deliver consistent information throughout an organization’s training program and accurately measure results without discrepancies. Businesses automating their inventory and product reporting will be able to increase scalability and reduce the risks of inaccuracies, with updates that are made in real-time to avoid backorders and missed opportunities thus affecting the over and under-selling of products.
In the practices of data, Digital Automation is leveraged in a number of ways:
As more organizations adopt Cloud solutions to host and manage their endless data supply, the importance of Auto-Scaling is on the rise. Business leaders are careful to recognize the potential of high costs and idle-time usage and have thus turned to Auto-Scaling, which considers the downtimes of data coming into the servers and prepares for low activity accordingly. In addition to reducing computational resource costs, Auto Scaling also proactively identifies and replaces unhealthy occurrences with new ones to improve performance. Automating scalability has provided compute flexibility in the loading and storing of data and has allowed businesses to manage costs only paying for what they require.
Automating workflows has enabled businesses to overcome the taxing challenges of slow, inefficient processes and wasted time. Workflow Automation ensures high efficiency enabling consistency and proper momentum when running processes without the loss of productivity. Rather than awaiting the completion of one task before starting another, Workflow Automation provides an automatic current of multiple activities in synchronization. Another benefit of automating workflows is the anticipation of errors before they occur, decreasing the numbers to increase quality of work, additionally impacting risk management in an organization. In turn, these benefits catalyze productivity as they reduce the chances of bottleneck effects on processes and execution, which typically slow progression or prevent further enablement of a task entirely.
Data Load Automation
We’ve looked at how Digital Automation accelerates data process flows and manages scalability in Cloud computing, however it can also be implemented for more precise tasks such as loading data. Taking a proactive approach, Data Load Automation can create scripting for data to be transferred once a file is available from the resource repository. This prevents long waiting periods and the risk of falling behind due to slow and delayed data ingestion, which often leads to some data being completely unused. Instead, automation enables applications to interact for a systematic correspondence of activities in running sequence that results in less error and an increase in time savings.
The fundamentals of Digital Business Automation consist of enhanced functionalities for quick and precise completion of activities, thus enabling an enterprise to successfully carry out its operations to meet the demands of its market. In turn organizations can extract business value by remaining innovative without worrying about the provisioning and management of resources. It’s no surprise then that they are eager to Digitally transform, and through automation, have the opportunity to accelerate the most detailed tasks. As the idea of digitally automating efficiencies was once daunting, organizations have quickly observed the apparent benefits of adopting a Digital Business Automation practice to consistently evolve and remain ahead of their competitors with limitless potential.
