Picture this! You are in the kitchen, and you realize that the settings of your refrigerator need to be changed. Out comes your smartphone, and you make the necessary changes. When leaving the house, you forget to change the temperature settings of the central heating. Once again, your smartphone comes out, and you are able to access the interface. Opening your car doors with Bluetooth enabled smartphone comes handy, and out goes the traditional lock and key mechanism. What has changed? The whole process that allows you to seamlessly integrate machines with smartness helps in this automated world. Information technology is the core to the changing digital world that offers you innovation in sync with IT needs.
With need for automation growing, itâs now time again to refurbish IT with style to integrate SAP HANA, which is all set to take over businesses and processes. Hereâs a 4 step method which will help reimage the way IT works and progress towards digital transformation.
Real Time Innovation
Till date innovation meant, working through the idea, planning and execution. Each of the phases existed in different time zones, and were planned separately. In the changing times, this too will need to change. Innovation will need to be real time. SAP HANA will refurbish this style of innovation, where analysis, research, planning and actual execution occurred in batches. With this new add-on, companies can run their analysis at any point in time, and forecast accordingly. With such real time analysis and planning, business models can adapt to the changing times with ease.
The Fail Fast Approach
Most organizations like it when their IT systems are perfect! This simply means they are planned in advance and executed in sync with the plan. As such, there is a gap between the planning and the execution when it comes to IT vertical. But, if you were to approach this with the idea of innovation, you might see that such perfect systems are a myth for IT. The changing digital needs should be addressed in time, and for that the best approach would be a fail fast technique instead of year long planning and implementation. This way innovation would appear real time.
Itâs Always an Investment
You need to reorganize the expenses in IT using specific systems such that it increases the overall ROI for your organization. Your organization should have more ground staff and project managers to roll out the projects at a faster rate, such that the expenses can be easily converted into true ROI. Innovation means having good strategizers, and a whole load of ground staff.
Complete Understanding of Business
Itâs not enough to understand IT and its changing face; you need to be complete aware of the business needs, and how the proposed IT solution fits the bill perfectly. In traditional IT, it was enough to know everything there was to information technology. But, with SAP gaining momentum, you need to take a different and innovative route. If you donât concentrate on overall business, you may stagnate.
Traditional ERP has been replaced by SAP HANA, and businesses have been generous in accepting it. With SAP, your business has not only improved in terms of processes, but also integrates real time innovation. This simply means you are able to assess and acknowledge the changing needs real time. You can accommodate more ROI with the expenses you have planned for the year. With SAP on board, organizations are slowly sailing towards digital transformation in the wake of innovation.
