Several companies have started incorporating big data analytics, artificial intelligence, and other technologies into their existing servicing models to create new products and services and gain a competitive edge. In addition, the adoption of digital technologies offers numerous opportunities and enables customer-centric business models. For instance, Rolls-Royce Motors Cars Ltd, a British automobile company, used advanced analytics, industrial AI, and machine-learning techniques to develop data applications that unlock design, manufacturing, and operational efficiencies within Rolls-Royce, and create new service propositions for customers. This has contributed to the growing demand for technologies for digital transformation across different industry verticals.
The evolution of digital technologies, such as cloud computing, IoT, robotics, and cybersecurity has created the need for digitalization across several industries. IoT helps build smart products through new functionality, reliability, greater product capabilities, and product utilization. Many companies are considering IoT strategic tool for business scalability and are helping businesses generate new and innovative user experiences. As a result, companies are adopting digital transformation. For instance, KisanHub, a U.K.-based startup, uses satellite technology and in-field sensors to provide precise information on rainfall, irrigation, crop growth, wind speed, and cloud cover with the help of IoT. These developments are expected to boost the growth of the market.
The increasing demand for platform-independent or cross-platform applications from the education vertical translates into substantial growth opportunities for the digital transformation solution vendors. Several institutions have recognized the role technology can play in helping to plot a course through the changing landscape. For instance, in December 2018, The University of Nottingham, with three campuses across the world (U.K., China, and Malaysia), implemented Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions. These solutions are integrated systems that increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and improve the user experience for both employees and students. While the adoption of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has yet to make the breakthrough many predicted, institutions are investigating innovative teaching techniques combining digital technologies.
The transformative impact of digital technology in the U.K.’s retail sector is significant and growing due to the increasing penetration of IoT and the adoption of cloud services. According to Forrester, a research and advisory company, by 2021, 55% of European sales will involve digital touchpoints, whether through direct digital transactions or digital influence on in-store sales. For instance, Microsoft Corporation offers Microsoft Cloud for retail which brings together different data sources across the retail value chain, uniquely connects experiences across the end-to-end shopper journey, and delivers more relevant personalized experiences and operational excellence for sustained profitability. These will aid organizations in moving forward in their journey in digital transformation during the forecast period.
