Elements of a digital core
Brian Devlin, Industry General Manager, TechnologyOne
Siloed business functions that operate within discrete boundaries have no place in modern organisations, where an enterprise mindset recognises that each function is an interconnected part of the broader ecosystem with the common goal of delivering on customer expectations.
The move from a structure of siloed business functions to one that favours cross-functional teams forming and working toward the same end goal can be a difficult one. To be successful, organisations must adopt an agile mindset with change being outcome-based and affected at each level and across all business functions.
This mindset must be championed and driven from the top down, which means clear articulation of transformational strategies, objectives and advantages right at the outset. It must also be visible through the actions of business leaders actively signaling buy in to a new agile culture, continually emphasising organisational values and striving to engage and seek feedback from employees.
Platform for transformation
Transformation rarely happens overnight – development of a solid digital core should be viewed as a necessary initial foundational step in your transformational journey, not the entire evolutionary process. An enterprise platform must provide a stable core that offers room to scale, grow and build ways to continuously innovate.
An integrated SaaS ERP solution empowers that transformation by converting existing processes – such as procurement – into strategic and proactive operations, allowing existing organisation goals to be met while simultaneously offering scope for growth and innovation into the future. Utilising a modern SaaS platform means the same functionality should be available on any smart device, from anywhere at any time, providing the capability demanded in a mobile-first world.
