What does digital transformation involve?

Short answer: digital transformation is all about integration

As per a recent Gartner survey, 72% of Data & Analytics leaders are heavily involved in digital transformation initiatives.

The long answer: digital transformation involves integrating business processes, company culture, and customer experiences with digital technology. It also means adopting a 'Digital First’ approach with any new solution a business develops. In other words, it isn’t a one-time thing and involves successive digital transformations of business processes at different stages.

However, is it enough to make services available online or modernize legacy systems to achieve digital transformation successfully? Implementing multiple new technologies in an organization is now a minor part of the plot; getting them to all work together and seamlessly share data is a major part of the digital transformation story.

How do cloud apps and software integrations connect with digital transformation?

86% of companies believe cloud technology is critical to digital transformation.

Nearly all new digital technologies are implemented or accessed through software or cloud apps that need to be integrated with business processes. Getting these technologies to communicate and combine their services via these software (and their respective APIs) is significantly easier. Thus, although a seemingly small part of it, at the heart of achieving digital transformation lies “integrations,” i.e., integrating business systems, software solutions (SaaS), and cloud applications.

Today, there’s a software solution or app to digitalize nearly every department or work process of a business, from Marketing, Sales, HR, Logistics, Customer Service, you name it! The most popular software solutions (SaaS) or cloud apps that businesses integrate are e-commerce platforms, ERP, PIM, CRM, WMS, POS, channel marketing, and many such systems. However, the question is - why should business leaders risk attempts to evolve long-standing working processes that laid the foundation for their company? Why favor adopting newer practices and technologies that are still being defined?

This calls for a faster and more flexible solution for building quick POCs with these new cloud apps and software integrations to accelerate digital transformation.

That’s where the Alumio iPaaS comes in.

What is the Alumio iPaaS, and how does it help accelerate digital transformation?

“At least 40% of all businesses will die in the next 10 years… if they don’t figure out how to change their entire company to accommodate new technologies.” — John Chambers, Cisco

The Alumio iPaaS (integration Platform as a Service) is a next-gen connectivity solution. It enables businesses to quickly and cost-effectively integrate two or multiple systems, software, apps, or data sources, across on-premise and cloud environments.

It is a cloud-based, low-code platform that both developers and non-developers (project managers, data experts, C-Level) can collaborate on to create, manage, and monitor integrations on one user-friendly interface. Most importantly, it provides organizations with a centralized, dedicated cloud environment to connect all their software, systems, apps, and data integrations. This presents a clear overview and full control of the entire IT ecosystem of a business through one intuitive dashboard.

In this regard, Alumio iPaaS helps businesses avoid having to invest heavily in developing their internal integration solutions. The automated monitoring and logging that the platform provides also help instantly detect data errors, API conflicts, or faulty integrations, saving troubleshooting time and cost. The Alumio iPaaS also enables businesses to build and schedule workflows to automate a series of repetitive, manual processes across integrations.

The benefits of using the Alumio iPaaS for digital transformation

Integrate multiple cloud applications. Integrate multiple systems, apps, or data sources, without custom code and with complete data sharing.

Boost integrations with Connectors. Choose from connectors or pre-configured connections to implement popular software integrations even faster.

Upgrade legacy systems. Simplify the integration of legacy systems and old-school ERPs with modern, cloud-based, customer-facing applications.

Get single-tenant infrastructure. Choose a "Dedicated Enterprise" environment to host all integrations and data privately with added security and without any limit on data routes, endpoints, or users.

Enable data security and compliance. Centralize all integrations and data on one secure cloud space to eliminate data silos and comply with key privacy legislations like GDPR.

Ensure business continuity. Organize a secure IT ecosystem that can act upon any worst-case scenario. Buffer all data, quickly change connected systems, and receive automated monitoring and logging to ensure data security.
