The digital business building blocks

By combining digital and real experience seamlessly, a digital company gives customers value. Digital technologies such as cloud, IOT, AI, robotics and even social media are indispensable, but substantial changes within the organization – apart from technology – are key to success. Such changes rely upon identifying and categorizing underlying capabilities into “building blocks,” which the enterprise can then use to gain a top-level understanding of where leaders should focus as they seek to transform into a digital business.

The building blocks are essentially highly qualified businesses. Companies should evaluate the three dimensions: personnel (roles, structure, skills), process (methods, services, governance) and technology, while evaluating each competency (applications, infrastructure). What capacity and investment should be given top priority? How mature is the capacity? Which develop? Which ones? After this understanding is gained, further details and planning can be carried out and new business functions can arise.

Building Blocks Capability

Successful digital organisations, no matter how capacity is arranged, share fundamental qualities and behaviours. Therefore, it makes sense to take care of these when establishing the building blocks of a digital enterprise. A list of suggested features and a list of emphasis areas is presented in the diagram above. Together, these lists can be used to construct a set of metrics to measure progress versus the expected behaviour.

The building block of the Stiftung helps efficiently manage corporate operations and construct the core of digital capacity.

To construct a more efficient foundation, digital technologies can be applied. The aims should be:

  • Simplify and automate core technology platform transaction processing
  • Create the ability to manage master data across the enterprise
  • Foster the sharing of data
  • Build security, dependability, scale and visibility across value chains from end to end.
  • Improve efficiency and cut costs through the use of digital technology

The Insights building block focuses on providing operational insights, as its name indicates. Technology is of critical importance (e.g. large data/analytics, AI/ML, IOT, Social media). The right structures, roles, competencies and processes

How do firms work with the customer? Who is going to generate, curate, and validate insights? How does the company use its internal data sets? How can insights as an integrated ability be managed? What are the paths between insight and action? The goals of this block are:

  • Establish engagement/collaboration platforms
  • Use all information sources, including operating data and external sources, together with digital technologies to get fresh information that is not available with traditional techniques
  • To validate ideas use the “Fail quick” technique

The block of digital components should focus on the construction of a repository of reusable components. One component is an independent nuclear service that delivers information (e.g. customer address), an infrastructure (e.g. secure sign-in), or a company service (e.g., creating order) that leverages new digital technology (e.g. a service for scheduling predictive maintenance). Ideally, a company should be able to generate digital components for usage by the user via an API or other service interfaces for all functions. Also as a core capability in digital components, the APIs are crucial to management. The Digital Components Block’s key aims are:

  • Create a digital component if a company function is able to ‘do’
  • Creating and managing their own components by supporting business tasks
  • Components such as products – have an owners to administer their life cycle for each component
  • Promoting cross-functional partnership
  • Manage business APIs to deliver greater value

The company should structure capabilities in the Digital Offers building block that enable it to quickly produce new products in response to client wants and insights. The focus should be on customer travel and on providing customers with enhanced experience and value. It’s about the ability to configure new items or services utilising digital components rather than developing offers from start (exposed through API). This may be considered a capacity for “product,” but with a much quicker marketing approach (in days and weeks rather than months). Processes, structures and tools should therefore be matched with the seamless, mobile integration supported capability.

  • Use a thoughtful approach to design
  • Give flexibility to experiment and invent
  • Concentration not hierarchy on accountability
  • Focus on standardised value generation

The last component, External Collaboration, emphasises the necessity for digital firms to cooperate and provide better services to their ecosystems. Who should and why should the company work with? Will the corporation cooperate formally with organisations? Will it enable people (e.g. app developers) to cooperate? What is going to follow the engagement model(s)? How will the company allow collaborators to use its data and services innovatively? The firm in the near future should consider the following targets for this building block in addressing these and other questions:

  • Increase its competitive benefits
  • Give you excellent experience using a (external) API and/or collaborative platform
  • Roadmaps Share
  • use crowdsourcing if a business case is available

They are interrelated building blocks, but enable separate development if necessary. Similarly, the development of the building blocks of the digital enterprise is not specified, because each organisation must select the sequence that is most meaningful for its company. The book “Designed for Digital,” by Jeanne W. Ross, Cynthia M. Beath and Martin Mocker that provides greater details on the tactics indicated above should also be taken into account by leaders who seek to construct their own building blocks.
