In 2015, the fourth industrial revolution and the digital economy began to gain strength and relevance. The business world and governments began to be aware of the enormous impact of the transformation that the industry had with 4.0, where competitiveness increases then, obtaining the fastest information takes high value.
Many companies that have taken their first steps in the implementation of technologies to adapt to future changes. Big data, machine learning, emerging technologies, such as deep learning, voltage flow, 3D printing, among others. The need to be flexible with the change leads us to reach new goals. It is important to keep in mind that not necessarily, the largest, strongest or oldest firms will be those that have sustainable success, if not those that adapt more quickly to change. The main objective should be in emerging technologies, to rapidly scale up to achieve concrete business results and cement the foundations of smart businesses. A company with a smart economy is one that is constantly evolving internally and externally adapting to its environment, making changes according to the information acquired from the market, taking into account the specific needs of its customers.
To develop an intelligent company structure, it is vitally important that the human team has a great capacity to adapt, to work in a team, with assertive communication, which allows a good working environment, committed and willing to innovate in the market. It is important that they have the mission and vision of the company and that the objectives of the company are very clear. In order to develop leadership, they must be open-minded to change, to venture into new technology that helps me to be firm in the market. Not only in the area of production with new machinery but also in the information, with the use of new technological programs that facilitate the functions, for example accounting programs, programs that speed up the recording of data, and improve the speed of obtaining the information. Having a faster report will allow me to resolve any incident more quickly, guaranteeing better results not only in production, but also in the final finances.
Taking into account that the company is everything, and that anything affects everyone. For example, there is a decrease in production, this report is passed, the cause is sought and it is found that it is because the demand has fallen because they have lowered sales, decisions can be made faster to help resolve incidents, preventing them from affecting the economy of the company, in this case a new sales strategy to try to maintain customers. Another alternative could be to expand my target audience.
To achieve these results, it is essential to be clear about the 4 trends that will be the axes for business development and innovation in the next 3 years.
Virtual assistants are a reality, practically every day, or several times a week, we let some applications make decisions for us and we fully trust their “intelligence.” The data will act as a source of intelligence and from there the decisions will be made.
All these technologies and improved human capacities will reach the three business objectives mentioned above, achieving important advances in the productivity of organizations. It becomes obvious that the transformation to an intelligent business is a way, each company must define how to begin to travel it, develop the knowledge and skills necessary to define its purpose in innovation.
