New technologies have changed the world we live in and the way we relate to each other, but also the way we work and carry out processes. And the changes that affect people consequently also affect companies. For companies and organizations it is an increasingly urgent necessity to adapt to an era that has already begun.
The digital transformation of companies is the gateway to this new world, and those that have taken the step are already taking advantage of all the benefits of being ahead of the curve and up to date.
The main reason why companies decide to take the step towards digitization is their very reason for being, to increase productivity. In this article we show you some outstanding success stories.
However, to understand why digital transformation leads to increased profitability, we must first understand the technologies that make it possible.
On which technologies is digitalisation based?
Digital transformation is made possible by the main technologies of the present future. Each of them is consecutive to the previous one, acting as different levels of application.
- IoT (Internet of Things)
It collects and sends data from everywhere, constantly analysing it, by interconnecting devices and objects through the network without human intervention. It is increasingly present in our lives, and therefore companies must take advantage of this valuable information to improve their services and products, and thus increase their profits.
- Big Data
Big Data is the immense collection of data from the IoT and its conversion into statistics and analytical patterns. Its key lies in the answers it provides to many questions that companies have not yet asked, simplifying information on a large scale, making it possible to identify problems, anticipate solutions, and make decisions more quickly and efficiently.
- Machine Learning
Machine Learning is the automation of the process of building analytical data models. It uses Artificial Intelligence to identify patterns and trends detected in Big Data automatically. The systems that include it not only process large volumes of data to make automatic decisions, but also learn from the response obtained to such decisions to continue optimising themselves without the need for human intervention.
Success stories thanks to digital transformation
Some examples of companies that have managed to generate new business opportunities and open up new markets thanks to digitalisation include, among many others, the following:
- GLOBAL OMNIUM:
Global Omnium, Spain’s second largest private water utility, has automated the operation of reserves in the water industry, overcoming two major challenges: the geographical dispersion of its assets and the lack of integration between the technological solutions used to operate them. As a result, it centrally manages more than 300 facilities, recording efficiency gains and 20% cost reductions.
Giahsa is a public company of the Mancomunity of services from Huelva for the management of the integral water and waste cycle. They began to go digital before the start of the pandemic, however, during the following months their digital transformation has been total, focusing on the user experience and remote control of their facilities and processes of the integral water cycle. This step forward has meant an improvement in the delivery of information and an excellent reach, with more than 23,000 visits and 1,000 contacts generated thanks to tools such as Chatbots, knowledge bases with artificial intelligence, consultation tickets, etc.
Realonda is a company dedicated to the manufacture of ceramic tiles, with more than 80 years of experience. The customised solution provided by Nexus Integra and ITC makes it possible not only to obtain process data in real time, but also to integrate and correlate information from different sources, which allows for a much more complete and detailed analysis of the needs at each stage of the production process and to make decisions more quickly and reliably. In this way, they have managed to increase production and the manufacturing efficiency rate.
How does Nexus Integra increase the profitability of your business?
Nexus Integra is the integrated operations platform that drives and executes digital business transformation. It connects all assets and information systems, processing them through the above-mentioned digitisation technologies and creating a single operations framework.
By ingesting, processing and visualising business data, Nexus Integra increases production efficiency, maintenance management, standardisation and unification of data and tasks. Nexus Integra enables remote management of systems and facilitates decision making through predictive analytics, resulting in a 20% saving in maintenance costs and a 70% reduction in new SW application development costs.
Where can Nexus Integra technology be applied?
- Smart Industry:
The IT and OT convergence methodology is applied to the majority of production processes, making it possible to obtain benefits and improvements in the short, medium and long term, structuring the digital transformation of the production process and making it possible to generate, in hours, an integral operating environment that brings together process control with process analytics.
- Smart Buildings:
Creates intelligent environments in detailed buildings, such as hospitals or schools, to control the status and maintenance of the different parts of the building. It takes centralised control of energy supplies, air conditioning, waste, video surveillance and increases efficiency.
- Smart City
This solution allows the centralised management of any city service, improving the quality of life of citizens, increasing efficiency and sustainability thanks to an open and interoperable platform that involves all city agents: sports centres, ports, transport, etc., together with the city’s Smart Buildings.
Implement Nexus Integra in your business
Nexus Integra offers different possibilities for its installation depending on the level of digitalisation of the company or organisation.
The platform allows a complete integration based on open source technologies. It boosts your organisation by centralising and homogenising data; managing processes and visualisation in real time; reducing response times and increasing efficiency and performance by obtaining a 360º vision of the company.
