Benefits of digital transformation?

Prefer doing business in a traditional way? Don’t rush into decisions without considering the wider context! Below are 5 huge benefits of digitizing your company:

1. Enhance Efficiency

By leveraging the power of innovative technologies and helpful tools, you can easily maximize the availability of productive assets and directly drive business growth. PTC and CoporateLeaders surveyed 128 executives, discovering that the most prominent advantage of digital transformation is the dramatic improvement in efficiency.

2. Reduce Costs

Apart from saving effort, digitizing your business is also an ideal way to save money. You will never know how much you have wasted on maintaining old, legacy systems and products unless you look closely into the annual report. For example, the cost of saving your information on a cloud-based system is 50% lower than using traditional physical infrastructure management. This explains why undergoing a digital transformation is a great ally to cut unnecessary expenses and keep the budget under control.

3. Increase Revenue

4. Better Customer Experience

Digital transformation redefines the customer journey. With digitalization, you can gain new insights into your customers’ buying behaviors and preferences by analyzing the detailed user data collected by the computers. You can then develop customer-centric marketing campaigns, building customer trust and long-term relationships. With reference to McKinsey, digital transformation can generate 20% to 30% increase in customer satisfaction.

5. Create Competitive Advantage

In today’s fast-changing environment, whoever fails to update the technology and keep pace with the competition will eventually lose part of their market share in the industry. To stay competitive, not only should you do it right, you should also do it better than the others. In 2020, McKinsey found that companies with faster product launches, better customer experiences, and reduced development costs usually had more investments in new technology than their peers.

Business transformation examples

1. Web Programming

Normally speaking, digital transformation starts with web development. As the public face to the world, a website is the foundation of trust, both internally and externally. You need to make sure your company website meets existing and future business objectives instead of just looking pretty, or else, your web will not be able to align with the company’s goal in the long term.

Under the supervision of an experienced programming instructor, you can gain an in-depth understanding of both front-end (HTML & CSS) and backend (Python in Django) development with business use cases happening in Silicon Valley, the leading technology hub in the world!

2. Python in Business

Python plays an important role in digital transformation since it is the most common coding language used in automating different tasks. Moreover, with Python, you can efficiently process and analyze the big data to drive valuable business insights.

If you want to learn Python that is not limited to basic use, Preface’s Data Science & A.I. with Python is exactly what you need.
