What are your thoughts on Cloud computing, Data Science, and how can they be a game-changer for start-ups?
Cloud computing is a big driver for digital transformation and so has the potential created by the application of data science. Cloud computing and data science go hand in hand for enabling new revenue streams, new kinds of business models, and new ways of monetizing the capabilities that a business can bring.
Thus, it’s not just enterprises but also startups that are benefiting from the new computing paradigms. While enterprises are benefiting from the efficiencies, scalability, and power of these technologies, startups are now exploring new business ideas built on the possibilities that these technologies bring forth.
A new breed of cloud-specific start-ups as well as based on the potential of data is now rapidly evolving. Add to that, the fact that cloud technologies allow businesses to bootstrap and keep a flexible cost model-based and aligned to their scale means that startups can be way more innovative and experimentative.
How do technology consulting and implementation services provide digital transformation solutions?
Consulting and implementation companies like Advaiya, help organizations identify ways to become more profitable by implementing strategic changes with the help of technology.
The digital transformation journey involves defining a strategy for a business that is aligned with technology’s potential and then creating a road map for implementing the same. This has to be followed by a diligent and high-quality implementation which should drive technology adoption as well as monetization for a company.
As the digital infrastructure grows, the potential for newer insights, creativity, and better decisions gets realized. Any organization would, at this point, see many more opportunities for intelligent automation.
Hence, we believe in the 4I approach of consulting and implementation, that is, information strategy, implementation, insights, and intelligence, as key for successful digital transformation.
What are your plans for growth… Top priorities for 2022?
Advaiya is on track to double itself in value creation in 12 months. This involves deeper engagements in business analytics, applications, and cloud with the existing client base and expanding its market in business intelligence, cloud data infrastructure, and business applications like project portfolio management and customer experience.
We focus on the services vertical which are seeing immense growth and innovation and thus taking up numerous digital transformation initiatives.
