Here are the Top 6 Digital Transformation Trends for 2022

    • Automation will power prescriptive guidanceAnalytics have powered much of the innovation of the last decade. It tells us what happened, explains why it happened, and predicts what will happen in the future. When combined with automation, we can move past descriptive and predictive analytics toward prescriptive guidance. With traditional analytics, we can only understand what’s happening at the moment and make an educated guess at what will happen next. Analytics augmented by automation, on the other hand, gives us a solid foundation on which we can plan for the future.
    • Agility will become a bigger priority

More enterprises will also see a shift toward low-code or no-code software adoption. These tools have long been the source of some controversy in the IT industry because many developers have feared their jobs would become obsolete if companies could operate on low-code software alone.

Whether it’s inventory shortages or shipping delays, significant supply chain challenges have sent organizations of all sizes in all industries scrambling. Many experts anticipate that data analytics will be the solution.

Customers effectively want the same experience when interacting with a business whether they choose to do so online or in person. To meet this demand, organizations should have a clearly defined omni-channel strategy and a consolidated, streamlined view of their customer data.

Most enterprises’ IT budgets will increase as well. This prediction is in line with Gartner’s forecast that worldwide IT spending will reach $4.5 trillion by this time next year — a 5.5 percent increase over 2021.

Enterprises should consider how innovative IT solutions can support their broader priorities. Digital transformation allows businesses to become more agile, productive, and dynamic in almost every aspect of their organization when implemented strategically. For the best possible outcomes, businesses should align their IT budgets with these priorities.
