Digital Transformation Made Concrete Part 2: How it can Protect your Business

*Digital Transformation Made Concrete: Part One was made to examine the ‘what’ portion of Digital Transformation, part two will cover the ‘why.’

When we look at the Digital Transformation and how it is shaping companies, one of the most important things to take in is the protection aspect. Company data, files, and even standard emails are at risk on any given day.

In a study done in 2013 by TechTalk, 95.6% of commuters put their company data at risk. This can be done by sending emails over “free” WiFi, or even sending data over 4G. You don’t realize in doing so that you are in fact putting your companies data at risk.

Timothy Francis, enterprise lead for Cyber Insurance digs further into the premise stating, “62% of cyber breach victims are small to mid-size businesses, which are at the greatest risk for an attack. Their level of preparation is low, and the costs of customer notification alone can be enough to do a small company irreparable financial harm.” In the same article which written by Rosalie L. Donlon, goes on to explain that the cost of a data breach in just legal fees alone can be crippling for a business.

So what we are looking at now is employees who are unintentionally putting their business at risk just by doing their job. Having a chat over texts or email while at the local coffee shop on their free WiFi is a danger to your company. This is why the digital transformation is important for businesses small to large. This is also where Team on the Run comes in, to help protect your company’s data with our state-of-the-art encryption capabilities.

Our company branded messenger can be used both on mobile and on web, that way you always know that your employees conversations and data is safe at all times. Team on the Run allows you to have your entire company contacts stored in our encrypted platform allowing you to safely send information between co-workers wherever you are.

When it comes to the digital transformation of a business, making sure they are safe and secure for the future is at the forefront. Team on the Run enables you to make sure employees can be accessible to each other, on a safe network, and at all times. No one wants to be the company that has it’s information stolen because employee B needed to send an email to employee A on Dunkin Donuts WiFi, all while using a Gmail account.

Digital Transformation Made Concrete: Part One

Digital transformation, business mobility, mobile enterprise, and some other related buzzwords.

Let’s start by defining the term. I found this definition by Agile Elephant that I think explains the term very clearly:

“Digital transformation is the process of shifting your organization from a legacy approach to new ways of working and thinking using digital, social, mobile and emerging technologies.  It involves a change in leadership, different thinking, the encouragement of innovation and new business models, incorporating digitization of assets and an increased use of technology to improve the experience of your organizations employees, customers, suppliers, partners and stakeholders.”

A few means of digital transformation include the use of analytics, mobility, social media and smart embedded devices to improve on traditional techniques and technologies to aide in smoother, faster and more intuitive internal processes and external customer relations.

The digital transformation is already a reality and the “transformation” side should not be taken lightly, as Phillip Tracy points out in What is Digital Transformation:

“Leading companies of this concept can be found in nearly all industries, with disrupters like Uber providing extreme examples of what digital transformation can achieve. In fact, in 2014 MIT interviewed 157 executives in 50 large companies — typically $1 billion or more in annual sales — and spanning 15 countries. Approximately half of the interviewees were business leaders such as CEOs, line of business managers, marketing heads or COOs, while the other half were IT and technology leaders. The companies interviewed were moving forward with digital transformation at varying speeds and experiencing varying levels of success. MIT found the best companies – those they refer to as “Digirati” – combine digital activity with strong leadership to turn technology into transformation, or what MIT considers reaching “digital maturity.”

As businesses look to integrate these process management tools into their arsenal to improve their companies function, Team on the Run is here to help. Team on the Run provides businesses with a company branded messenger platform that includes features like Push to Talk, NFC tag check in, secure VoIP calls and Geolocation.

The main point of the digital transformation is to reshape the modern enterprise and automatize the processes you go through on a daily basis. Eliminate the hassle passing documents by hand, or logging driver miles for fleet management by digitizing your processes and letting the technology improve your day to day.

One example for Team on the Run and Fleet Management customers is our ability to get rid of expensive outdated equipment by making their processes quicker and more efficient. When you have less steps in a process you can save time, so when you look at something like Geolocation and PTT (Push to Talk) they save time by utilizing both on one device and in one app as opposed to using Walkie-Talkie equipment and a GPS.

In our next post we will look at how the digital transformation can protect your business.
