“New Horizons – Classic IT Integrates New Data Worlds”
Many IT organisations are currently facing a massive change. Challenges not only include the digitisation of new business processes and the support for new business models, but also the fact that the horizon of traditional IT is greatly expanding by the convergence with new datafworlds. This begins with the data from development and production to information linked to products and services, and to customer data. For CIOs, this trend provides new opportunities to position themselves itself as a major designer of the company.
The data from development and production offer great potential to slimline product cycles (time-to-market), to create new synergies and options for increased effectiveness, and to offer new customised products. Worlds largely separated before will merge and be linked by new interfaces.
Internet of Things
In many companies and industries, IT is mainly used as an important part of products or services. However, product development and services will need to work more closely with the IT division of the company. This need is not limited to internal processes, but concerns the entire management ofsupply chains.
Today, it is no longer sufficient to know the needs of customers. Predictive analytics are increasingly need to illuminate the near future and to create competitive advantages. In addition, it is important not only to listen carefully to the customer, but also to evaluate all information and to properly channel communications.
