Digital transformation is arguably the hottest topic of 2020. But as often happens with the rapidly gaining popularity trends, they talk about digital transformation both here and there, but only a few do understand what it is.
Why do companies need digital transformation?
Many people believe that digital transformation is simply the introduction of new technologies into an existing organization. But this is a dangerous misconception that can lead to serious business problems. The mere use of blockchain, artificial intelligence, or robots does not make your company digital. Technology is part of the puzzle. And its main connecting element is people.
Business and team Digitalization service is a way of rethinking how employees work to effectively interact with customers through the use of Jira and other tools, modern technology and data analysis.
The goal of any transformation is simple - to improve the efficiency of the organization: spend less, earn more, and bypass competitors and ourselves. To achieve this, you need to focus on developing the potential of your employees. It is they who, day after day, interact both with the equipment you purchased and with your customers.
Everything works for me anyway. Why does my company need a digital transformation?
With the advancement of technology, customers are also becoming more and more demanding. Many processes are accelerated dozens of times, and some disappear altogether as they are unnecessary. And this is becoming the new norm that businesses must comply with. Remember how movie fans with bated breath used to walk for a new cassette to the rental point. Now social networks are instantly filled with angry comments if the long-awaited premiere of the series suddenly does not load click in a click.
Even if your business is afloat right now, that doesn't mean it won't become obsolete next year. The ability to change quickly in the face of constant digitalization is a key competitive advantage that every company should think about. And the sooner you get into this race, the better.
This all applies only to the IT sphere, isn’t it?
This is another dangerous misconception. Active digitalization affects all sectors of the economy. The development of technology is changing not only IT but also many other industries: industry, construction, transport, banking, retail, agriculture, hospitality, and even medicine, education, and public administration. Surely, this also applies to your company. And they all can benefit from Jira Cloud and other software for better project management and routine task automation.
Why use Cloud hosting
Cloud services continue to attract businesses, even as businesses struggle to migrate their infrastructures. Some companies do it faster, others slower, but this process is already irreversible.
The strategic and operational paradigm shift has sparked a market reaction, where in addition to the dominant AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, there are a large number of small cloud providers, each of which is trying to grab the cloud pie. What is the reason for the massive migration to the cloud? It's pretty simple - it's about survival: businesses that follow the digital transformation path thrive, businesses that avoid it go downhill.
What drives the companies to use the cloud:
Flexibility. It allows you to choose several cloud providers, build a private or hybrid cloud, select a virtual machine in just a few clicks, deploy a container, remotely determine the computing power needed by an organization, use it, and also quickly get rid of redundant ones.
Сut project cost. Moving projects to the cloud translates into serious cost savings that appear due to hosting projects on outsourced IaaS sites. In addition to saving money on hardware purchases by relying on the power of IaaS providers, they reduce software costs, avoid additional IT staff, and reduce energy and data center costs.
Providing Cloud Migration services within 5 min
The speed of the transition to the cloud varies depending on the industry or regional affiliation of enterprises - some make it faster, others slower, but one fact is indisputable - moving infrastructure to the cloud means moving towards digitalization.
The cloud market is rich in choice - enterprises can adopt a private, public, hybrid cloud, or opt for multi-cloud. The choice depends on its size, market position and the goals of the company. It may be dictated by a need to serve clients more flexibly or to move forward and become part of the digital revolution.
