Most publishing enterprises are considering a Digital Transformation initiative and vendors across the world are mushrooming to take the leap from baby steps to actually helping out organizations in need. If the shot hits the bull’s eye you get to score, get nice commendations and all is good to go.
Companies these days are gearing to open up digitally evolved and advanced roles, as consumers are shifting focus from paper to the web. A research by MIT Sloan finds that despite the proliferation of digital roles and responsibilities, most executives recognize that their companies are not adequately preparing for the industry disruptions they expect to emerge from digital trends. Nearly 90% of respondents to a 2015 global survey of managers and executives conducted by MIT Sloan Management Review and Deloitte anticipate that their industries will be disrupted by digital trends to a great or moderate extent, but only 44% say their organizations are adequately preparing for the disruptions to come.
With terms like deliverability, scalability and user experience becoming the core areas of focus for online businesses and especially digital partners, business leaders want IT to work hand in hand with business, to give data driven predictions, take results on the same and move towards the path of continuous growth.
There are a lot of things to weigh on the scale, and to decide which could be sacrificed for the other.
Involvement Vs Output
How much involvement needs to be there also matters about how complex your system is going to be. The more the complexity the more the involvement might happen as there are a lot of factors that would need to be taken care of.
On the other hand, output and performance is one such factor that cannot be compromised with so publishers need to gear up to come to such kind of a solution that neither compromises output nor adds involvement
Infrastructure speed Vs infra reliability
In some of the articles that we have covered lately especially the ones about cloud computing we have come across in a lot of places about the importance of infrastructure, there happens instances when this becomes a huge downer and results into degraded experience for consumers.
Reliability is therefore very important to consider.
Uniformity Vs Flexibility
If technology is flexible and scalable it becomes easier for companies to move from one area to another, for expansion of business while if things are more uniform they are stable and have less ups and downs and less maintenance but comes at the cost of flexibility.
Carry Vs Keep
What to keep and what to take becomes a big problem while digital transition is into play.
Often business leaders focus on this areas as it can lead to drainage of resources that have been built up over the years.
Calculating the return on investment is very important, you might be moving with a new vendor or a different technology but is that change giving you a better output than before?
The IT industry in terms with the Publishing industry has been changing from times unknown, every year things are changing, getting better speedier but the tenure of people in the industry is not changing that fast.
Hence investment has to be done in training the resources, employees will help in the move only if they are aware.
To fully utilize the full potential that lies underneath, these are a few things that needs to be taken care of. Business leaders want IT to be focused on business results, innovation, and continuous improvement and growth. Opportunities of digitized technologies and their effect in a strategic and focused way can open gates beyond knowledge. There are a lot of ways your business can be benefited. Find out with us.
