Growing business in the 21st century means embracing and
introducing disruptive technologies into your organization's
everday life. Our consultants can help you assess the potential
uses of emerging new solutions and technologies and are able to
participate in the introduction and localization projects of
several disruptive technologies, from AI-based tools to
Internet-of-Things (IoT) solutions.
Large organizations are currently facing many challenges
that are amplifying each other's effect on the operational costs
and profit increasing opportunities:
- Employee shortages: many
developed and developing economies face major employee shortages
due to weakening demographics which means higher HR costs and
longer recruitement times for large organizations.
- High employee turnover
rate: because of the labor shortages organizations are more and
more aggresively try to offer positions to the competition's
employees, which results an increase in the employee turnover
rate. Higher employee turnover rate means rapidly increasing
sunken costs and deficit in the enterprise knowledge base (e.g.
users are performing tasks in a critical system without actually
knowing what they are doing).
- Digital-first attitude of
customers and business partners: digital natives tend to rely
less on face-to-face contacts, rather they are demanding and
using electronic channels for accessing products/services.
Advocate strategic consultants can provide consulting
services for solving the above mentioned challenges by introducing
new, disruptive technologies into the organization's IT
architecture, such as:
- Robotic Process Automation
(RPA): because of the higher employee turnover rate and
shortage, many repetitive tasks (mainly back office activities)
can be automated with the introduction of RPA applications.
- Chatbots for internal
help-desk: many tasks within the organization that traditionally
requires human operations from the IT helpdesk can be automated
by a properfly configured, self-teaching chatbot (e.g. user
administration processes, network access configuration, even
smaller workstation troubleshooting).
- Smart Contracts: with the
help smart contracts which is a computer protocol that digitally
facilitates, verifies, or enforces the negotiation or performance
of a contract, several legal contracts and financial transactions
(e.g. OTC derivative transactions and contracts) could be
executed in a cheaper, more secure and automated way.
