Digital transformation of DX refers to the process of “going paperless” by shifting from old, traditional ways into new, innovative ones. Today, many businesses consider digital transformation as a way of climbing the ladder of success, since most organizations today have learned to cope with the continually changing environment of technology. According to IDC DX, at such a time wherein technology is changing at a rapid rate, digital transformation has become more than just a choice, but rather an inevitability. Why? Well, mainly because it is through digital transformation that business leaders are empowered to create the future of work, operations, intelligence, and customer experience.
Businesses today push digital transformation forward as a way to also improve user and customer experience, providing only the best of services, user interfaces, and interaction to both employees and customers. At such a time of modernity, it has become nearly impossible not to adapt to these changes and go digital as well. In fact, companies who remain stagnant are those that’ll be having a hard time catching up.
As mentioned, technology changes fast. One minute you’re trying out a new trend, next thing you know, there’s a whole different set of trends other organizations are now attempting to integrate with their business processes. Today, one of the latest and most talked-about digital trends include the 5G or fifth generation technology. But, how can this affect digital transformation and vice versa? Fortunately, here’s a list I’d like to share about how digital transformation is moving businesses today and how it can make 5G technology available worldwide:
Increased Need In the Healthcare Industry
5G has become essential and needed today more than ever. Healthcare facilities, for one, have shifted towards digital transformation as a way to efficiently and effectively look after patients, sort through records, perform training operations, just to name a few.
As mentioned, the ambition for 5G in the healthcare sector is mainly to enable a stronger and guaranteed secure connection so as to help solve challenges within their field of expertise, such as monitoring aging populations, people with chronic diseases, improved, and personalized care and solutions.
Increased Need In the Public Transport Sector
Public transportation is a rising issue–or rather, topic–today all over the world. Truth be told, we all want better public transport systems, and 5G is the best option in helping support operational performance, maintenance, and control of infrastructure and other public transportation systems. Also, it helps support and improve entertainment services for people along the way.
Increased Need In the Agriculture Sector
The increased speed and accuracy of 5G technology can help support the use of drones as a way of monitoring crops. Also, remotely connecting to this can help control farming equipment and other machinery, providing faster and better solutions and operations.
Increased Need In the Automotive Sector
The automotive industry is one of the most significant (if not the most notable) factors or sectors that need to collaborate with 5G technology. Networks within automated and connected vehicles can potentially configure and address the different needs and demands of this industry without a sweat. 5G is an advanced type of interface or technology, and fortunately, it’s one of the most awaited ones in the automotive sector.
Increased Need In the Media and Entertainment Sector
Let me just state the obvious. 5G technology is highly needed in this industry. It can help support, address, and solve so much problems, issues, and demands. 5G is expected to determine the different demands in the media and entertainment industry to provide a better quality of service while also enabling providers to deal with and utilize new products, devices, and services.
As mentioned, digital transformation has become more than just an option, but rather a need in such a fast-paced, modern, digital world. If your business still hasn’t wholly incorporated digital transformation efforts into your day-to-day operations and processes, then you’re probably missing out on lots of opportunities! With 5G about to debut in the coming year, you might find it hard to cope with all the latest trends and advancements. So might I suggest you catch up while you still can. After all, digital transformation can do you more good and bring so much opportunities to the table than drag your company down the gutter.
