The Millennium Alliance team has just returned from Arizona, where two successful assemblies were held: The Digital Enterprise Transformation Assembly and The Transformational CISO Assembly.
Business leaders from a variety of industries joined together to debate important subjects about technology and business over the course of the two days.
The following subjects made an impact during the events.
Digital transformation is known as how businesses adapt in order to meet the needs of technologies that are constantly developing and growing. These changes include internet, mobility, and social media.
Since we live in a world of growing digital development, business leaders have a mutual understanding that these transformations will affect their businesses and change how they execute strategies within their operations.
It is important for these leaders to stay above the curve of digital transformation by adapting to new technologies and tools that have emerged through a variety of markets.
“When technology is new, there is no applications” – Keynote speaker, Tony Scott
Tony detailed to the audience how when there is new technology there is a lag time between a release of the tech and it has an actual business use.
However, he was keen to emphasize that the best business leaders are getting behind digital transformation before digital applications exist and being first to come up with them.
Learning what digital transformation means to each specific business leader is an impactful way to gain insight into what digital developments are seen as a priority.
According to Micro Focus, “If you don’t change and embrace digital business, you are going to miss out”
With the growing development of digital technologies, comes the threat of security breaches.
Companies are constantly looking for new ways to protect their data, networks, and devices from being hacked which will lead to important information being compromised.
This makes security a top priority among business leaders and is a highly debated topic among these individuals.
Staying up to date with technology, while remaining a secured operation is a crucial factor in adapting businesses to digital transformation.
New technological advancements provide enhanced software and integrated tools that heightened the concern for security among businesses.
Businesses are catching onto the impact of the cloud revolution and are debating the security risk that could potentially come with it.
The cloud adoption executes important tasks for businesses by:
- Digitally transforming an organization
- Creating expert development
- Growing business outcomes
- Generating higher customer interaction and expanding services
By reinventing businesses IT functions, cloud transformation migrates applications and embraces technology in order to execute strategies such as collecting data and decision making.
Since major companies are putting sensitive data into the cloud, it is important for business leaders to explore all security options and developments that this digital transformation introduces.
DevOps enables collaboration between different teams which increases communication within companies while enhancing organization through the business channels.
Business leaders are constantly discussing the importance of DevOps and if it is necessary to integrate it into their organization.
According to DevOps.com,
“Your DevOps approach must include a detailed understanding of your culture and learned behaviors that will influence the changes you want to see in your organization.”
Individual business culture determines if DevOps is successful within a company and if this digital transformational trend will be effective.
Business leaders have caught onto this concept, and are concerned with making their particular business environments suitable to integrate new transformations.
Data Management and Self-Service Analytics
Data management helps businesses manage and execute information in an effective matter by developing policies and procedures.
Self-service analytics uses these procedures by providing businesses the opportunity to offer their employees a chance to perform activities and generate reports without needing any IT support, or education in technology.
This is done through:
- Simple to use business intelligence tools.
- Data models scaled down for ease.
Adapting to this new strategy of business has many positive outcomes for both the business and the employees.
