Digital Transformation Trends
Before we start talking about digital transformation trends, we need to know what a digital transformation actually is. So a digital transformation is the adaption and integration of technology to match industry standards and change. This is essential for modern businesses, education systems and the like. As it creates opportunities to develop processes and technologies. A company that is going through the change is able to operate efficiently and use advanced technology in its business.
Here are a few trends happening in the digital world, that maybe you could think about using in all areas and industries. Such as education, or in a management position.
We’ve spoken about becoming a hybrid or remote working assessor before and its benefits. However, it’s every industry that’s getting in on hybrid working models. As this working style won’t be leaving us anytime soon. Additionally, a benefit is that it gives both employers and employees more freedom and flexibility when it comes to the work-life balance. This is why companies and education systems need to invest in collaborative platforms so that everyone is connected and able to work collaboratively.
We continue to see advances in technology every day. Something new is always being released. We need to be able to adapt to these changes and use these technologies if necessary. For example who would have predicted the rush to video-based learning we now see 5 years ago? Something that is always changing is the IT infrastructure. If you’re a teacher or in the FE sector, you should definitely know about IT and its changes, as it’s extremely important. It also provides benefits such as:
- Providing better efficiency- by having faster and easy-to-navigate platforms you can operate much better
- Boosted agility- creating seamless working experiences you can make the most of the IT infrastructure.
- Increased productivity- having access to different types of platforms you can have better productivity.
When you invest in IT you can get instant upgrades on any server or platform, from faster speeds to secure networks. As well as strengthening your networks to have better security.
With evolving technology comes increased risks. This could make a gap for cybercriminals to take advantage of. This is a threat to businesses and any sector that relies on technology really. In order for this not to happen, you need to invest in cyber security. Defending against cyber threats could be the difference between failure and development.
With the risks of increased cyber attacks, there is a demand for more cyber security specialists. So a good route to go down is to become a cyber security assessor or tutor to get those undertaking the qualification through it. As there is a market for them and jobs are in demand.
Collaboration is key when it comes to modern workplaces and education systems. To be able to instantly comment, respond and review work gives you the ability to increase efficiency and productivity. Apps like Microsoft teams and Zoom help you access data and digital tools to create a more connected experience and have better innovation. You always have access to the newest and updated version. It’s extremely useful to use within a learning environment as it increases engagement and you can use it to foster new ways of thinking.
Digital transformation is happening and whether you are a business or an education system, you have to go with it. The world of technology is always changing and you need to move with it. Some of these trends are what you need to unlock your full potential, whether in your business or if you’re a teacher.
