How to Realize Digital Operation of Enterprises?
Whether the core of digital operation is “digital” or “operation”, different stakeholders have different understandings and explanations. The author believes that the two are interdependent and inseparable, which can be defined as helping enterprises to realize efficient, agile and intelligent operation and management under digital drive through digital technology. Digital technology is no longer limited to traditional IT technology, but also includes artificial intelligence, block chain, cloud computing, big data and other emerging technologies. However, enterprise operation management is a general term for all kinds of management work closely related to product production and service creation, covering planning, organization, execution and control in the operation process. Only by treating “digitalization” and “operation management” as a unified and organic whole can technology empower enterprises.
From the perspective of enterprises, enterprises not only face the normal environment of slowing global economic growth and increasing competition in the industry, but also face the direct challenges of increasingly demanding user needs and rising operating costs. How to break through the internal and external troubles? From the supply side, the development and popularization of digital technology have made the digital technology platform more mature, creating favorable conditions for enterprise innovation management. Because of this, IT solutions that integrate digital technologies provide enterprises with a possibility to solve problems. Digital operation can help enterprise managers to quickly see the panorama view from strategy to implementation, and use forecasting and simulation techniques to gain immediate insight into the uncertainty in the operation process and timely respond to changes, thus helping enterprises effectively solve the long-standing problems of high inventory, high cost, long delivery period, low efficiency and so on.
Digital operation is the foundation of digital transformation. Its essence is to automatically and intelligently resolve the uncertainty of complex environment, optimize the efficiency of resource allocation and create the core competitive advantage of enterprises through big data plus algorithm. With the great migration of global information application technology architecture, the digital transformation of enterprises is going from information management based on traditional IT architecture to intelligent operation based on cloud architecture.
