Challenges related to digitalization and digital transformation
What is digitalization and what is digital transformation?
Digitalization and digital transformation refer to the use of technology to radically improve the performance or impact of a business. Often restricted to its marketing dimension, this transformation takes place at all levels, from R&D to industrialization, from client relations to marketing and sales. Properly operated, it leads to a significant increase in operational efficiency and the development of completely new business models.
Digital transformation is an expression that has been found in all companies and industries, especially in Industry 4.0 for more than 10 years. While as consumers, digital takes center stage in our daily lives, businesses and industries must adapt. Some sectors (retail, finance, media, etc.) are ahead of the game, while other sectors (healthcare, construction, agriculture, automotive, chemicals, etc.) are lagging behind. For these sectors in particular, a rapid transition to digitalization is a prerequisite to remain competitive in an ultra-connected world.
What are the challenges related to digitalization?
Due to its pervasive nature in business, digital transformation is quickly becoming a strategic issue. For several industries, it is also complex to apprehend because it is far from the habits and practices rooted for several decades in the life of the company. Challenging existing organizations and processes, it can also be difficult to make operational once planned.
For companies wishing to start or continue with digitalization, several challenges arise:
How do we support you in your digitalization and digital transformation projects?
Alcimed supports its clients by providing sector expertise and knowledge of technological challenges related to the integration of data into strategic thinking. Our team has also acquired skills in “data science” for several years – and our data scientists are called upon whenever we work on the use and exploitation of data, as when implementing a Data Driven strategy, or even when we handle complex data sets in our client projects.
Beyond technical skills, Alcimed supports its industrial clients to better understand what digitalization brings to the various functions of the company:
- In R&D, in order to accelerate upstream research, increase the success rate for new products to reach the market, predict in healthcare, for example, the profiles of future treatments in terms of efficacy or toxicity, etc.
- In industrial operations, for example to imagine what quality control will look like in 15 years using connected digital technologies, or to imagine new batch release procedures, etc.
- At the level of sales operations and marketing, to understand how digitalization can strengthen client relationships – a major issue in times of health crisis, etc.
The types of projects we carry out for our clients in this field are:
