Business technology solutions are evolving faster than ever. It’s important to keep up with these changes to ensure you’re using the best solutions for your customers. Today let’s have a look at the top three business tech trends you need to prepare for.
Cloud and automation are must-haves
A few years ago, cloud computing and business automation solutions were considered groundbreaking solutions that were unique to only a few businesses. This isn’t the case today, though—now these are table stakes for every business. According to the latest Deloitte Global Outsourcing Survey:
- Businesses are looking for solutions to implement cloud-first technology in their organizations. As of 2019, 68% of businesses are employing cloud as one of their digital enablers; and
- Over 75% of businesses are actively looking for robotic process automation (RPA) solutions.
Cloud-based systems will allow your business to operate from virtually anywhere with an internet connection. Business automation, on the other hand, is a valuable solution for completing repetitive and programmable tasks. It helps you avoid mistakes while freeing up your talent resources for more specialized and income-generating tasks.
Majority of businesses today use one or both solutions in their operations to improve productivity. More importantly, both these solutions proved crucial when the pandemic hit. The cloud model is tailored to remote-working, while business automation ensures operations run uninterrupted and the transition from office-based to remote work is seamless. Companies now require these whenever they seek out business support outside their organizations.
Data privacy and security matters
Without adequate data privacy and security, data runs the risk of the being easily accessed through cloud computing and cloud-based systems. As a result, these measures are an important factor in business. The Global Outsourcing Survey identified data security as the most cited concern among businesses, with compliance and regulation risks also highlighted. Having security measures in place to protect customer information is an important factor for your customers when selecting which businesses to trust. We go into this in greater detail in a previous blog—check it out for a complete discussion on cybersecurity, compliance, and data privacy protection.
Business continuity is integral
You need to have a business continuity plan. The Global Outsourcing Survey highlighted the need for businesses to have better plans for delivering services from home offices, managing their own supply chains and keeping productivity high. At the same time, they have to maintain the level of data protection and customer service that their customers expect.
You need a flexible business continuity plan that can easily be implemented when unexpected circumstances arise. This plan should be applicable whether it’s a regional issue, which is what businesses usually prepare for, or a global standstill like the pandemic that we’re recovering from today. On top of that, you’ll need the accompanying technology to support uninterrupted service, whether in the confines of an office or from the comfort of your own home.
