Why do companies need digital transformation?
Developments in digital technology have a major impact on the products and services. From VTR to LD/DVD, then YouTube, and from the film camera to the digital camera, then smartphones; Japan’s high-tech industries are already being buffeted by these waves of change. And from the standpoint of company-internal process efficiency, the process that began with computerization has developed further into ERP and cloud solutions. Today, the needs for “digitization” is shifting from products and processes to businesses and corporations through digital transformation. Competition is already intensifying on a global basis with U.S. companies like Google, SFDC and GE, which are already gathering data and competing on the cloud, and the largely German companies that are using frameworks like Industry 4.0 to competitively link companies, factories and machines.
The era of new conversion to the Internet saw the emergence of digitized services through collaboration with numerous venture firms. It is ABeam’s corporate clients that are now entering a new era of digital transformation. Digital technology can now be seen as a mode of revising all activities companywide, including profit sources, customer services, sales channels and production methods. ABeam Consulting supports the digital transformation of Japanese industry, and aspires to generate a digital transformation originating in Japan. It is through the activities of ABeam Digital, going forward, that we will support this transformation.
At ABeam Digital, we maintain intimate links across our Digital Marketing, IoT, BI (Analytics) and Sports & Entertainment sectors, in support of our clients’ transformative efforts. As we move forward, we will be visiting clients to make proactive recommendations to provide specific solutions that share in the following four key attributes:
- Real: Case studies that ring true with a genuine sense of what’s happening on the ground in business and at client companies
- Speedy: Assets and environments that make it possible to test out hypotheses and make lean start-ups happen quickly
- Simple: Easy-to-understand (i.e. concrete) prototyping for trials
- Smart: Operational scenarios based on novel ideas (i.e. processes, organizations, horizontal corporate integration) that break through conventional thinking
Moving forward, the activities of ABeam Digital will shift the heart of solutions to support new businesses that put advanced technology to use, to create a new reality for business processes, and to cover across “business & enterprise” from “enterprise only”.
