How Digitalization will Impact Business- and Operating Models

As customer experiences take centre stage — so does the need for a more profound and compelling insight definition. Insights form the cornerstone of research and technological development from so many angles, a lighthouse for what we should do next, and a catalyst for creating new value for our clients.

The ever-increasing explosion of data puts more knowledge at our fingertips than ever before, but we need to know what to do with it. Otherwise, it is obsolete and ineffective.

Digitalization is, whether we like it or not, a fairly new era of Enterprise Information Technology, and along with growth, is now top priority for both private- and public- sector organizations. Going Digital offers new ways to engage your audience, deliver a superior experience across the consumer life cycle and manage costs. However, these new opportunities bring new risks, such as the need to protect customer data to be successful.

Today, digital dexterity is crucial across the enterprise, and nine in 10 corporate leaders view digital as a top priority. Yet the majority (80%-85%) of organizations struggle to make meaningful progress on digital transformation. People are at the heart of digital initiatives, and organizations need digital-ready talent. Employees with high levels of digital dexterity deliver faster and more valuable outcomes from digital intiatives, yet few employees are considered to possess this quality. Organizations that want to capitalize on digital business opportunities need to have employees with high levels of digital dexterity.

In Our Insights we continuously publish articles with relevant information on anything digital.

Drive competitive advantage by harnessing the potential of digitalization and overcome the challenges and seize the opportunities.

Digital business has reached a tipping point as private- and public-sector organizations leverage it to engage with stakeholders, manage costs, improve productivity and deliver a superior experience. But capturing the digitalization potential can mean radical changes in business and operating models.

Understand the challenges that executives leading each function encounter with digitalization and learn what your organization must do to overcome the challenges and drive higher performance.

Cyber security risk is increasing, driven by global connectivity and usage of cloud services, like a number of Web Services, to store sensitive data and personal information. Widespread poor configuration of cloud services paired with increasingly sophisticated cyber criminals means the risk that your organization suffers from a successful cyber attack or data breach is on the rise.

New product design and development is often a crucial factor in the survival of a company. In a global industrial landscape that is changing fast, firms must continually revise their design and range of products. This is necessary as well due to the fierce competition and the evolving preferences of consumers. Without an RTD (R&D) program, a firm must rely on strategic alliances, acquisitions, and networks to tap into the innovations of others.

The digitally transformed economy is the new norm. As the pace of change accelerates, the risk of being disrupted increases. However, the transformation also brings unprecedent opportunities for efficiency gains and business growth to Swedish organizations.

Swedish organizations are fast to leverage new technologies to become more efficient and customer centric, but are cautious about transforming the actual business models. The stronger the competition and harsher economic conditions, the more likely companies are to transform beyond business optimization, and the organizations that see digital transformation as a threat are most likely to change the business models in the course of time. This will inevitably happen.

Technology acumen is key for successful digital transformation, whereas the importance of technology is recognized across the organizations and leaders with IT background increasingly drive the strategic transformation. Transformation is driven by and supported by IT. Third platform technologies and innovation accelerators are increasingly adopted, and IT organizations are reinvented in Sweden. This is happening right now and Sweden will over the years to come experience a lack of available highly educated IT personnel.

Through digital development, many companies aspires to reshape its industry. A common goal is to enhance customer experience, strengthen customer loyalty, and increase efficiency and sales by engaging with its businesses and dealer network to contribute to the common goal of implementing superior digital services.

Digital Ghost is a new paradigm for securing industrial assets and critical infrastructure from both malicious cyber-attacks and naturally occurring faults. It provides a new line of defense at the physical domain layer in addition to current IT/OT layer solutions. The team has developed advanced high-performance algorithms for detection, localization and neutralization of abnormalities (attack and fault), as well as algorithms for abnormality forecasting, providing predictive situation awareness and early warning capabilities.

Modeling and Simulation of event flows is basically as old as mankind — What happens when, what happens if, what happens then — are questions that farmers, militaries and community builders have been asking themselves at all times. But it is only today that our technical platforms are powerful enough to be able to simulate entire communities.

This year I have found more and more information about simulation and analysis using Digital Twins, drawing on Gartner’s predictions for the year(s) to come. Kicking off the new year 2020, I’m focusing on Digital Twins and Digital Ghosts – what are they and how will they influence technology?

In the digital era, data has become the lubricant for competitive advantage. However, what percentage of businesses, and in particular CIOs, have their data ready to create that advantage? The answer to this key question should be valuable for anyone involved in the data value chain, especially those trying to make their data useful.

Digital transformation, Digitalization, Paperless Office — The most talked about transformation within companies and organisations today have over time been given many different names. Arguably, nothing is more powerful today than data. It’s an integral part of the decision-making process for companies, especially when it comes to marketing. But as companies collect even more data, they’re also faced with the challenge of how to make it actionable and how to leverage it to drive the best results for their business.
