Digital Adoption – The Unappreciated Stratagem Behind Rapid Technology Risk Transfer
Summary: Technology adoption and implementation is taking place at a thunderous pace these days and the advent of modern technology along with changing market demands is enabling rapid innovation through numerous tech channels.
Every firm differs from others in its response to dealing with disruption. While some CIOs prefer to go by data-backed strategic approaches, a few decide to go by disruptive measures with a view to bringing about immediate changes. Disaster responses either take you forward by years to the tipping point of the technology boom or drag you back into oblivion.
How Are You Using Technology?
Modern IT ecosystems have overpowered most disruptive circumstances with rapid Software Development Services backed by equally disruptive digital technologies. We are in the age of rapid technology transfer and adoption – but never before has the world experienced digital adoption at this pace. When we talk about developing and adopting new technology, we should consider two parameters:
- Technology For a Software Service Provider: As a thumb rule, every Digital Service Enhancer (read developer) has to constantly upscale itself and its abilities. New digital concepts outpace the existing ones every day as the latter gradually loses relevance. A Software Service Provider thus can never say ‘No’ to learning; on the contrary, a developing unit has to keep itself updated with the rapid movements in the IT space. It is of utmost necessity to know about emerging technologies, analyzing how these are affecting the marketing dynamics and if these have the potential to positively transform your products and services.
- Technology For Digital Benefactors: In order to stay relevant in a new economic environment, digitally progressive firms have adapted themselves to fastrack tech adoption – something that has propelled the acceptance of many emerging technologies which could otherwise still have been in the trial stage. Most firms have acknowledged the strategic importance of technology as a crucial business component and not merely as a tool to mediate cost efficiencies. Take a look at the enterprises that have exhibited the best crisis response – they had a vast range of tech capabilities that filled in for the tech crisis during disruption and attributed the speed of innovation.
Causes of the Tech Boom:
Although much has been spoken about the said digital boom, let’s carefully examine a few causes that spurred these far-fetched changes and almost forced neo-digital transformations:
Increased collaborative nature of the modern workspace: In the age of prototyping and offshore development, most firms leverage the scope of offshore development in order to speed up a software product’s time to market. In fact, to support rapid digital transformation initiatives for your clients, you should require adequate infrastructural strength to back their work processes. Thus, modern technology integration becomes an utmost necessity.
- Changing nature of customer demands: With strategic advancements in digital products and services, client demands keep changing for better usability and experience. To capacitate the growing demands on the user end and to provide a seamless user experience, integrating and implementing modern technology is indispensable. Moreover, the present global disruption has completely changed the way we look at retail software solutions these days. With a huge influx of online retail business, the customer demand for online retail services keeps soaring.
- Migration of tech assets to the cloud: The cloud has become an unavoidable space for the IT industry. The boom of intellectual property means a mounting cost of data security services. The cloud space has not just guaranteed easy accessibility of digital property but also secured data breached issues. But the price for all of this is investing, integrating, and implementing new supportive technology at the pace of innovation.
- Redundancy of supply chains: Another factor that has contributed to the phenomenal boom of modern and emerging technology is a redundant supply chain. By and large, a host of vendors are losing their relevance because of either legacy approaches or failing to comply with changing market demands. As a result, the IT ecosystem is gradually gearing up to build robust capacities technology for itself through emerging to compensate for the gap.
Technology and Evolution
Technology is one field that never stays stagnant; it rather is a rapid evolutionary process. It is the nature of technology to outpace the previous versions in terms of the rate of progress even as new versions of the same tech are launched.
Let us now look at the most palpable effects of the technology boom:
- Augmenting human capabilities: The aim of every digital transformation drive is to speed up existing processes through automation and reducing manual labor to the point possible. From driving intelligent business strategies through data-backed business analytics and AI to maneuvering design thinking through AR, revolutionizing the health industry through IoT, and redoubling operations through ‘system of systems’ – modern technology has rapidly increased capabilities for human resources and organizational capabilities as a whole.
- Opening up new streams of ROI: The IT market is one of the most volatile, and there’s almost never a parity between the demand and supply. With the advent of modern technology, the demand for advanced digital products is ever on the rise. This doesn’t just give rise to new and potential markets but also new streams of ROI. With the influx of new technology, it is the nature of businesses to discard redundant value chains and business models. Look at technologies like AI, AR, Blockchain, cloud, and 5G; not only have they revolutionized organizational processes but also culled fresh sources of revenue for enterprises.
- A catalyst for innovation: Technology and innovation are two closely-knit ideas – just like technology propels experiments and implementing new ideas, which leads to innovative discoveries. The advancements in the field of IT have roped in affordable technology that enables innovation even at a smaller scale. AR and VR have transformed the prototyping industry, influencing design aesthetics at large. Business analytics backed by appropriate data have enabled firms to pace critical decisions with the right judgment.
The marvelous pace of innovation that we are experiencing today requires a couple of factors to work together – the hardware, software, cloud, and connectivity must work together to deliver revolutionary user experiences.
For tech innovations to work correctly, one must first tick these boxes for adequate information:
- A functional and logical design process
- System qualification assessment
- Configuration management across the SDLC
- Impact analysis and audit for compliances
We must always remember that all tech advancements take place due to two root factors – high-paced tech advancements and rapidly evolving customer demands. And the pace of innovation has warranted that most disruptive changes are brought by small to mid-sized companies with a diverse niche of partners across the globe.
