Modern Companies Cannot Afford to Ignore the Digital Transformation
Digital transformation is an absolute necessity today.
Especially for small businesses, it has become indispensable. A few
years ago, digital transformation was thought to give businesses a
competitive edge. Now it's a fight for survival. We interviewed
Dennis Crimen, ICT Head at Philippine Airasia, on how mobility
services enabled by digital transformation are reshaping the
commercial environment. Anywhere working models and on-demand
decision-making have become possible thanks to mobility services.
People no longer have to report to the office to do their tasks.
They can work anywhere. Through technological outputs that
streamline their operations and allow employees to access platforms
that were once inaccessible to the public internet, modern
technologies are impacting mobility in the post-Covid era.
Employees now have the opportunity to connect and simultaneously
adhere with government-mandated security requirements. Using the
public internet to access assets comes with some concerns. User
behaviour has a big impact on security. Regardless of how secure
the systems are, a simple mistake like opening a phishing email can
make the situation worse. Mr. Crimen advised users to be careful
when accessing information to prevent the loss of sensitive company
and personal data.
Francisco "Kiko" Castillo, Senior Vice President and Chief
Information Officer of Maynilad Water Services, Inc. discussed how
to use modern data integration technologies to achieve business
results in our conversation with him. He began by describing how
integrating data analytics and technologies is different in terms
of methodology from building transactional systems. According to
him, you need to allow sufficient time for data cleansing, which
typically takes up 60% of the project time. Applying the right
methodology and conducting pilot testing are the next steps. A
leader of IT will eventually have to learn how to deal with these
aspects. Kiko believes that deciding what to accomplish is the most
important component to consider when looking at data integration
platforms. Other factors include the data sources in the various
systems, the types of data sources, and the identities that are
used consistently across all sources.
On August 24-25, more than 100 digital transformation leaders will
gather in the Philippines to discuss the key trends and challenges
of a hybrid future. As part of its commitment to connecting
transformational leaders, EDX is hosting the DX Leaders Strategy
Forum Philippines 2022, a two-day hybrid event that will highlight
partnerships between technology providers and end users to shape
the digital future of Philippine businesses.
