Every company needs to carry out a transformation process that takes into account the demands of the present. The digitalization of the business fabric is already an essential element for any business, as important as commercial or financial management.
Considering the current situation where digitalization, immediacy and optimization of processes take precedence over anything else, the application of Artificial Intelligence has marked a before and after in this scenario.
Thanks to the digitization of processes with AI, we are not only able to automate all kinds of processes, but also to establish high-value predictions or very interesting suggestions through Big Data.
How to start this process? Below, you will find all the information you need to tackle a digitization process in any business.
Studying the starting point: the first step to digital transformation
To achieve the digitalization of a company, it is vital to know at which point it is. To do this, it will be necessary to know its level of digital maturity, studying its case from all perspectives and analyzing the resources and tools we have at our disposal.
By doing this study, it will be possible to know the strengths, weaknesses and points to improve. By outlining this starting point, the next steps towards an innovative and digitized future can be defined.
We define up to 4 different levels of digital transformation.
- Digital disconnection
Disconnection with reality and obsolete production. A company at this point has no effective interdepartmental communication, characterized by very slow response times.
- Digital challenge approach
New opportunities in a developing digitalization process. In this phase, system improvements are proposed and planned to offer more efficient production. It is at this point that the planning of the digital process of the business in question begins.
- Digitization in process
In this phase, a digitalization of the industrial plant is carried out, where companies start to use tools such as MES, SCADA or ERP. Thanks to these, remote maintenance begins in real time, more efficient and optimized. Likewise, a company marked by this stage is characterized by the beginning of the use of intelligent technologies such as Big Data or Machine Learning.
- Total digital integration
Stage defined by a total integration of smart technologies such as the Internet of Things, Blockchain or the use of digital twins to achieve maximum efficiency. By making use of these types of tools, the company that reaches this stage achieves leadership in digital transformation in the sector.
After knowing the degree of digital maturity of your company, evaluating the current situation, it is time to establish an action plan, applying the points to improve and studying which tools are the most appropriate to boost your business.
How can a integrated operational platform help you with digitization?
An operations platform is essential to facilitate, standardize and optimize your business processes. Thanks to its nature, you can generate an integrated global operations environment, monitoring all types of assets on a large scale.
For example, the company GIAHSA needed a solution that would improve the control and responsiveness of its facilities and processes. To meet this challenge, they relied on Nexus Integra to monitor and track facilities and processes remotely from Smart SCADA.
Thanks to this implementation, GIAHSA was able to reduce maintenance costs by up to 20%, having an overview of the facilities in real time.
Having an operations platform allows managing and processing large amounts of data, ensuring interoperability with other corporate information systems.
In addition, if it is equipped with smart technology, you will have at your disposal a platform that will analyze and cross-reference all types of data, developing intelligent predictions and achieving a reduction in maintenance and production costs, etc.
What are the advantages of digitizing your company?
These are some of the benefits of starting a digitalization process in your business:
- Reduced costs and production time. A digitized business is a more competitive, productive and profitable company. By using tools such as MES and ERP, the short-term effects are immediate.
- Added value compared to the competition. It is necessary to adapt to the changes and demands of the present and, for this, it is necessary to show adaptability and flexibility.
- Increased productivity, thanks to the optimization of all types of resources and tasks.
- Increased strategic focus, as personnel are freed from repetitive tasks, allowing the team to focus its efforts on more methodical activities.
- Having the opportunity to control in real time all types of data from the monitoring of systems and processes.
