Companies work with a mountain of data that are used or shared in a cumbersome, inadequate or unreliable manner, or even not at all. Incomplete information as well as the cumbersome processing of these data make processes inefficient, complex, archaic and time-consuming. It is up to business leaders to generate productivity gains in this area as well. New technologies such as process mining, data-sharing platforms and the Internet of Things (IoT), are the ideal technological solutions to achieve successful “chain operations” and “data sharing”. These new technologies ensure that the parties can share information and optimise their processes in a reliable manner. Sharing is becoming the new multiplying.
The integration of new digital technology is a complex and far-reaching process. It’s like trying to change the course of a tanker – it takes effort and time. However, there are other ways of (immediately) improving productivity. Today it is already possible to work more quickly and accurately using Robotic Process Automation (RPA). Speedboats and tugboats that help the tanker on its way.
