"Too many organizations historically built their technology infrastructure in a piecemeal manner. Use this opportunity to redesign and architect the business to be scalable and more flexible for future needs."
This week's quote is by a multiple award-winning technologies and business leader - Dr. Jonathan Reichental
His career has spanned both the private and public sectors. He has worked as a senior software engineering manager, a director of technology innovation, and has served as a chief information officer at both O’Reilly Media and the City of Palo Alto, California.
He is currently the founder of Human Future which is a global advisory, investment, and education firm. It also creates online education for LinkedIn Learning.
He has written two books on the future of cities: Smart Cities for Dummies and Exploring Smart Cities Activity Book for Kids.
Jonathan is recognised as a global thought leader on a variety of emerging trends including sustainability, smart cities, urban innovation, blockchain technology, data governance, and digital transformation.
Specifically. Jonathan believes that the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation in all industries. Although moving to a higher level of digital services was underway for many businesses, 2020 made them prepone their plans and move at a much faster pace.
Digital doesn't just deliver a more convenient method to engage with the audience, but it also reduces the cost of delivery and increases efficiency in transactions.
However, the technologies built to assist the process of digital transformation are often built to overcome a certain situation and solve the current problem. This is what leads to outdated technology and ultimately not being able to keep up.
If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us one thing, it is that change is the only constant. Especially in terms of operating your business, being able to communicate with your stakeholders, and conducting your day-to-day tasks. It all keeps changing in accordance to the market conditions, customer preferences, and well sometimes...a pandemic!
At DDSN we have been continuously working on developing technology that is flexible and has powerful capabilities to accelerate digital transformation. Recently, we built a customised app for St. Johns College, to help them communicate with their residential students for efficient operations. We even built a pop-up on the Chess Moving website to inform their audience about safety policies and changes during Covid.
