Business digitization: what is it and why is it important for business success?
In a technological world, corporate digitalization represents a challenge that businesses must face if they want to remain competitive.
What does corporate digitalization mean? Corporate digitalization is a transformation process that involves all areas and levels of a company. It requires careful planning at a strategic level and consists in the implementation of tools and technologies to make workflows more efficient. In other words, the digital transformation of a company depends on the ability to exploit the opportunities behind new technologies to automate activities and optimize business processes.
However, corporate digitalization is not just about the use of new technologies and document dematerialization. It also implies new participatory methods, and open and shared workspaces, even remotely. Think about videoconferencing meetings, chatbots for customer support, or social media interactions that influence the Brand Experience.
The corporate digitization process calls into question the old operating models. It is a technological, cultural and social change that creates new connections between people, places and things. It encourages transparency, sharing and inclusion in the entire corporate ecosystem.
In such a context, it is essential to develop a Digital Mindset, that is a mentality open to change and capable of seizing the opportunities offered by digital transformation in order to improve business results.
Here’s how you can improve your Digital Mindset:
- Be curious about digital tools and keep up to date;
- Accept and face the challenges of digital transformation with a positive and proactive attitude;
- Use technologies to improve work and achieve goals.
What are the benefits of business digitization?
Digital transformation is changing the world, the way we interact and companies, which must embrace digital transformation to improve business management and organization.
Let’s see the main advantages of the business digitization process:

Document dematerialization, computerization and Cloud Computing reduce the use of paper and printers. This results in an economic and space saving, but also in a reduction of environmental pollution. In addition, the use of new technologies, combined with the updating of skills and knowledge, favors production optimization and the possibility of entering new markets;
New digital technologies make it possible to securely store data. Furthermore, cloud backups avoid the risk of losing information important for business management;

Corporate digitalization simplifies the exchange of information between team members, allows corporate values to be communicated in different ways, and increases the visibility of products and services. In a mobile, social-based and multichannel society, companies can now offer an increasingly personalized Customer Experience. Moreover, they acquire authority.
