SLN Spotlight_SAP Labs China: How to Overtake on a Bend during Digital Transformation
With the tide of cutting-edge technologies like IoT, IN4.0, Cloud Computing and Big Data, digital transformation is waving into our lives. Time of enterprise digitization has now come!
Enterprise Digital Transformation
Enterprise digital transformation is defined as the process of taking advantage of emerging technologies to transform the company. The transformation is for three goals: one is to help enterprises interact with customers or business partners better (new user experience); second is to help enterprises involve in the competition of current and emerging market better (new business mode); third is to help enterprises create new value chain better (new value creation).
Nowadays in China, many enterprises invest a lot in software and hardware for digital transformation, but gain few effects in execution because of the lack of system integration and data delay. It always takes a few days even more than a month to get a report. Obviously, real-time and integration can’t be more critical for organizations.
Lack of data has become the biggest obstacle of knowing the company itself for long. There are so many reasons for data missing, such as absence of good data management and storage system; high cost of data storage and analysis; low conversion rate of data value. Most companies need to enhance the capability of observation and data application. “Integration” of data is the stepping stone to discover value, as well as the path leading to enterprise digital transformation.
