Digital transformation is a brand new word combination that becomes even more popular nowadays. By the way, it is not an ordinary bloated trend, but an effective solution that is going to lead your business on a new level.
Internet Technologies in Business
About 10 years ago, everyone aspired to have websites and used to develop them. Then they switched over to promo – a kind of bright and creative campaigns in social media. Now we see that businesses are regenerating with the help of Internet Technologies. Plenty of new services appear, websites become more user friendly and contain fully-featured applications.
A quick rise in the technology development changes the way of cooperation between the brand and its customers greatly. A modern client uses a bunch of digital channels – he makes hotel reservations, listens to music, buys clothes and food, orders a taxi and books tickets – that all sitting on the couch.
That has led to corresponding of the modern companies and brands to expanding demands of the customers. In fact, the first ones need to reconstruct their business processes entirely.
Transformation of various spheres is a constant process, those, who do not change, will disappear.
The best example of this process is traditional music sphere with its CDs (cassettes, vinyl discs, etc.), which reduced on 35% (2003 – 2012) and lost $4 billion. A new ecosystem of electronic music has appeared once again and it feels more significant every year (ITunes, Spotify, Google play, Pandora radio).
The Way Changes Come Up
Business process remains the same. People stay in inns as it used to be, but the way of renting these inns has changed – it is online booking now – airbnb.com or booking.com.
Look around, digital transformation has been around us for a long time:
- a newspaper → any social network
- paper books → IBooks
- market → online shopping
- a taxi dispatcher → Uber
- long lines to the booking offices → buying tickets online.
Life gets better! ;)
