Actually, IoT as a technology is already old hat. After all, ready-to-use IoT solutions already enable completely new applications that have arrived in our everyday lives. So why is IoT still an important trend for the new year?
Digital transformation has been on companies’ minds for years. But it is only with modern solutions such as the collaboration tool Microsoft Teams that they realize they need to digitize other applications as well as business processes even more. With the right strategy, platform and adoption, this is possible in an efficient way.
Many employees found themselves unexpectedly and predominantly in their home offices during the contact restrictions. For many, this was a completely new situation with challenges in terms of collaboration. Now many are gradually returning to the office, often alternating with home office phases. In flexible, location-independent collaboration, there are some differences compared to pure office work, as the past few months have shown. With the right measures, managers help their teams to be productive and positive – regardless of where they work.
Even industries that are far removed from IT, such as soccer, want to increase their economic success with the help of digital processes. A practical example shows how the volumes of data available today contribute to this. Other industries can also benefit from the customer lead and risk scoring approach.
As a result of extensive digitization and connectivity, companies are accumulating huge amounts of data. They can use these with the help of intelligent processes and machine learning to generate added value. But many projects fail because companies neglect the strategic relevance of the entire use case or, in some cases, do not even consider it. This is where a comprehensive data strategy can help. This enables companies to successfully shape their digital future, make better decisions and optimize processes.
