A company needs the right platform that streamline data and automate its movement across the organization and remove data stagnation. Digital Transformation brings everything into one flexible platform that let the data move freely across the organization
Fremont, CA: Digital transformation is completely digitizing the internal operations of a company and let them be ahead of the competition, and this is the reason companies are readily investing in them. The company must focus on integrating more number of applications rather focusing on the applications and their process that are helping the employees.
The use of different applications that don't integrate well can lead to data stagnation and isolation, which threatens the digital transformation initiatives taken by the departments.
How is Archived Data Dangerous?
A large amount of high-quality data produced by various departments stays stagnant for a long time. It becomes difficult to move large amounts of data in a custom path without someone actually manually pushing it. With digital transformation, the data can be moved faster, with fewer mistakes, and the information is easily traceable. But the data will only move freely within a particular process and not across the entire organization if the business process and projects are not connected to each other. The archive data thus is accessible by only one department, which leads to lack of efficiency, transparency, and data stagnation in the company.
Why Data Stagnation Happens?
Choosing limited technology apps instead of robust platforms for digital transformation create more apps and shadow IT, which in turn leads to data stagnation. A company must use handy tools and applications for transfer and sharing of information, which automates the entire process rather than manually pushing the data.
Growth of Organization
It becomes difficult for data to easily pass through different departments when the organization grows without a clear and precise scaling plan. Employees are isolated and disengaged, and a specific team may not be willing to release all the data they have because of the sudden increase in the competition among the employees.
How Dangerous is Stagnant Data!
The restricted flow of data between the departments creates a divided company and makes it difficult for the employees to perform their best. This narrows the vision of the company. There is no central database for the employees to find relevant information. They have to find out where the data lies and then manually get access to it. This makes the process quite longer and slows down the pace of the organization. It also increases the chances of errors and wastes and personal troubles among the employees.
The data also becomes outdated, inaccurate, and unusable if it's stored stagnant for a longer time. It is also possible that different teams use different versions of data, which may cause inconsistency in the organization.
