A backbone for digital transformation
Our world today is unquestionably digital. New technologies from augmented reality to artificial intelligence (AI) are changing the way we live, and the worldwide pandemic has only accelerated this reliance on technology.
This rapid rise in technology is requiring enterprises to transform from click and mortar to digital first. To understand this transformational journey, we need to consider the building blocks of this transformation.
Digital transformations start with the creation of a “digital backbone.”
A digital backbone enables an enterprise to react to the rapid changes and new requirements of a digital world.
It is the digital thread that weaves several systems, including networks, gateways, hosting services, user interfaces, cyber security, and middleware in a unified backbone to bring out digital insights for enhanced digital omni-channel engagements.
A digital backbone comprises of an enterprise-specific architecture built out of data services, next-generation networks, smart platforms, agile processes, and automation capabilities that enable digital insights.
Each one of these blocks encapsulates an important element of the corporate’s business. In this context, the digital capabilities of a company are mapped onto a set of building blocks, which in turn can easily be joined together to create new and specific solutions.
