The world is going digital, and no sector of the Indian Industry is left vulnerable from the impact of digitization process. The reason is simple. Enterprise as well as consumer technology is all set to mark the whole new world of transformation where people will not change but their lifestyle will.
According to technology research firm Gartner, “By 2018, more than 3 million workers globally will be supervised by a roboboss.” It subsequently asserts that manpower and machines will be working together dynamically in order to boost the productivity and scalability of the organization at an exponential rate.
Integration of Manpower and Machines
The decision making process will become for effective and faster than ever before and machines will have the major say at different levels of the process. However, brilliant human minds are there to deal as manpower is the true asset for any organization. In order to stay ahead of the curve, it is necessary for the organizations to adopt latest cutting-edge technologies and deliver quality goods and services while ensuring customer satisfaction.
Leveraging Web 2.0 Technologies
Digital future of enterprises simply represents that enterprises will leverage the Web 2.0 Technologies to maintain a seamless flow of communication between the internal and external public of an organization. It further represents the identity and access management in the cloud, leveraging big data analytics to detecting where the malware is residing in your devices with increasing data volume.
Bridging the gaps
IoT is not a new concept to the digital era as it stands for the interconnection of devices via smart sensors or grids in such a way that they are able to exchange or collect data. It’s another form of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) interaction where machines interact with other and make the tasks done on the behalf of manpower. Surroundings will become more accessible and the world will become even smaller; everything will come under a roof and this will definitely call for a transformation.
Economy is going cashless to some extent and government is further pushing reforms to support digital initiatives across different sectors of the Indian industry. E-tailers have further reshaped the way people used to shop and brought a huge competition for the retailers. In order to look forward for growing business opportunities, businesses need to go hand-in-hand with the digital business models and latest enterprise technology suite while ensuring enterprise mobility.
Challenges and Solutions
However, there exist risks while going digital as data breach can lead to a situation of crisis for any organization. The whole world is fighting against the menace of cyber crime and breach of data confidentiality, which is a welcoming step. The future of enterprise can be digital if and only if, robust digital policy framework and data security measures are carried out while keeping the privacy interests of businesses and consumers in mind. IT infrastructure vendors are steadily heating up the market by bringing cutting edge-IT infrastructure product portfolio to meet the demands of digitally-driven businesses but data security architecture requirements should be met at first.
