What does smart mean?
Smart can be technology driven but human driven as well. In the study carried out by Avaus Consulting for DIGILE Need4Speed strategic research program, the smart business building blocks are:
- SMART VISION
An explicit development initiative or program to utilize more data to become a more insightful company. Strong will to become a smarter business even though not necessarily there yet.
- EXPERIMENTAL CULTURE
New ideas and development initiatives are tested at a fast pace without heavy planning. Results are measured and analyzed, and decision-making is based on the results. An experimental attitude is also very important: trying out something new – and sometimes failing – is ok.
- DATA-DRIVEN DECISION-MAKING
The practice of basing decisions on the analysis of data rather than purely on intuition. The ability to gather and analyze business data from various channels to increase business insight. Further visualizing data in an effort to help people understand its significance.
- EVOLUTION IN VALUE CHAIN
Moving from product or service business towards solution business. Today it is essential for companies to help their customers do their business better or help their customers reach their goals. Providing products only is no longer sufficient as customers are craving for solutions for their problems.
- INTERNET OF THINGS
Utilization of uniquely identifiable objects and the ability of collaboration with and between the objects. Objects are “discussing” with each other and they learn. The data is gathered and even utilized in real time.
- USING APIs AND CONNECTIVITY
Providing an open programming interface to third parties and developers to connect to and to create more and better services together. Open interfaces for web-based services and applications for interaction.
- ENTERPRISE MOBILITY
A shift in habits with more people using mobile devices and cloud services to perform tasks without being dependent on location or office hours.
