The Impact of Digital Transformation on Corporate Performance_kamann_sivri_2012

  1. 1. Te c h n o l o g y Tr a n s f o r m at i o n The impact of DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION on corporate performance New ways, new markets
  2. 2. The world is transforming towards digital The Digital Revolution The world is embracing a new era of digitalization. Within a short time frame, digital innovations increasingly transformed individual behaviors and steadily redefined enterprise realities. Through the wide adoption of digital opportunities, new product and services emerged, customers now have broader product choices, market competition intensified across industries, and suppliers’ relationships have been transformed. Digitalization transformed existing market structures, enhancing the necessity for enterprises to respond to the current vital market changes. As Fig. 1 shows, this digital revolution is triggered by the abundance of available information, social connectivity, the rise of true mobility, and the emerging fusion of the digital and physical world. “In the 1930’s, the cumulative codified knowledge base of the world doubled every 30 years, today it doubles every 11 hours.” The high internet adoption increased the range of available information. With over 270 million websites, over 12 million wikis, billions of videos and blogs, a wide range of content is available at digital users’ fingertips. People increasingly communicate, share knowledge, build opinions and undertake shopping decisions via social networks. With over 800 million global users, social networks now have tremendous impact on enterprises, influencing customer shopping decisions, reshaping workforce communication and revolutionizing supply chain processes. Furthermore, the true mobility of services eliminating the boundaries of time and location plays a crucial role in our new era. Over 300 million smartphones, 20 million tablets and 12 billion mobile applications already reached markets. Customers, workforce and partners aim to be connected everywhere at anytime. The upcoming digital era will be additionally shaped by the emergence of the digital-physical reality. Innovative applications such as Augmented Reality or Machine-to-Machine communication will enrich physical environments with context aware services and valuable information. To approach the digital revolution, enterprises need a structured digital agenda. This publication illustrates digital impacts, opportunities and strategies which are vital parts of a digital agenda.

  3. 3. Digitalization impacts markets and businesses Digitalization of markets Figure 2: Impact of digitalization on market drivers Business structures have been revolutionized by digital opportunities. As Fig. 2 shows, the digitalization of our society transformed product & services, customer requirements, competition and organization models. New products & services The emergence of digital technologies transformed product & service offerings. Innovative internet-based services emerged, providing customers new dimensions of entertainment, shopping experience, communication and sharing. Nowadays, the extension of existing offering portfolio with new product & services does not necessarily require ground-breaking innovations. With business model innovation, firms reshape existing eco-systems, generating new customer experience and increasing sales. For example, enabling customers to access an unlimited range of multimedia content at their fingertips, Apple revolutions the music, video and gaming retail industry. Also, the rise of true mobility triggered the adoption of mobile services and apps, where new services emerge every day. The number of mobile apps already surpassed 500 thousand, generating global revenue of $2.2 billion in 2010. “In 2003 Apple launched its music store and sold over 1 million songs in the first week. Seven years later, the store served its 10 billionth song download.” New products & services New organization models New customer requirements Digital markets Higher market competition © 2011 Capgemini Consulting Thus, innovative firms leveraging digital opportunities can improve their top-line with new product & services offerings. Additionally, with the wide adoption of mobility, customers expect service readiness regardless of time, location and handset. New customer requirements Thus, enterprises neglecting mobile services may lose market share. The digital revolution impacts customer behaviors and requirements. With the high internet penetration and the resulting information advantage, customers now have a wide range of new choices. The existing information abundance shifted the bargaining power towards end-customers in most industries. Customer decisions are increasingly based on social network opinions, where product or service experience, popular marketplaces, videos, or photos are widely shared. Higher market competition The wide internet penetration and mobility adoption widens the geographic market and intensifies the global competition. Also, in most industries, online opportunities reduced market entry barriers, eliminating the need for physical sales forces, physical assets and reducing traditional administration costs. The impact of DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION on corporate performance 3
  4. 4. “In 2005, Blockbuster was the biggest US video rental store. While in 2010 Blockbuster went bankrupt, Netflix passed the 20 million subscriber mark with its on-demand online rental.” Digitalization enables firms to improve process efficiency, become more competitive and reduce market entry barriers in most industries. For example, a wide range of pure online retailer such as Amazon, Zalando1 or Mymuesli2 revolutionized traditional retail business models and found a wide market acceptance. These pure online retailers have high cost advantage compared to traditional retailers, since they can save on personal, facility and administrative costs. The rise of pure online offerings also represents a threat for traditional banks. Bank of Scotland, a purely online based bank has a very slight administrative structure with less staff, physical assets or related expenditures. Through its cost efficiency, Bank of Scotland can provide attractive interest rate to its clients which surpass traditional banking rates. Digitalization increases the importance of service differentiation and cost efficiency, raising the necessity for supplier integration. Since customers increasingly require full services on one hand at their fingertips, competitors increasingly become cooperators and conjointly participate to value creation. For example, Amazon US now integrated Facebook Connect in its recommendation engine to improve its recommendation results based on social media information. Fressnapf3 and Mars integrated their sales data to optimize demand forecasts and reduce inventory costs. Also, considering potential workforce as knowledge supplier, digitalization transformed recruiting processes, with Enterprise 2.0. For example, New organization models Zalando is a German online retailer selling shoes Mymuesli is a mass customization website enabling customers to create their breakfast by choosing own ingredients 3 Fressnapf is a German franchise selling pet food 1 2 4 social media is highly vital for talent identification and brand reputation. Digitalization also increases the necessity of a digital organization which can deliver digital capabilities to the firm. The digital organization delivers digital technologies with expertise to the firm and supports the transformation process. To transform to the full power of digital, L´Oréal formed a team of 300 power users with the goal of providing digital expertise at strategic points of the firm. Nissan and Deutsche Bank extended their IT organization with a social media sub-unit which delivers social media opportunities such as marketing or customers support to the enterprise. Thus, digitalization requires new integrated processes and delivery models.
  5. 5. Digitalization can be leveraged Opportunities A coherent understanding of the digitalization and its impact can be translated into opportunities. This potential value of the Digital Transformation affects both the topline as well as the bottom-line of an enterprise, while both dimensions have dedicated value drivers that present avenue to leverage the digitalization. Fig. 3 provides an overview of Digital Transformation value drivers. Top-Line Value Drivers Considering the top-line dimension, business enrichment represents the extension of existing offerings to increase customer satisfaction and brand value perception. BSkyB enriched its business by digitalizing its customer interaction from service acquisition, over support to billing. BSkyB ensured a transparent relationship with the customer, enabled customer to control service interactions and adapted its services towards customer behaviors. As, result, BSkyB improved its customer satisfaction, brand reputation and customer value perception. Additionally, digitalization enables business expansion that can be achieved by the identification of new customer segments to enable business growth. Further expansion can be permuted by the integration of digital leaders or targeted dissociation from partners to leverage the advantages of the digital world. The targeted recommendation engine of Amazon US coupled with Facebook Connect represents an example of partner integration leveraging synergies. Business growth can be also achieved with business innovation. Enterprises fostering the opportunity to deliver digital value through innovative customer-driven products & services can expand towards completely new markets. Additional value can be attained through the re-adaption of the current market approach to the new digital market spaces, with business model innovation. For instance, Pages Jaunes in France offered new digital services by shifting the business model from traditional printed media to digital and mobile services. As benefit, Pages Jaunes created new revenue streams offering new services within new platforms.

In 2011, Amazon sold 3x as many ebooks for its kindle platform as it sold hardcovers.” Therefore, digitalization top-line drivers enable enterprise to expand their business, acquiring new 6 customer segments, extending their offerings and growing towards completely new markets. Bottom-Line Value Drivers On the other hand, digitalization can also be leveraged on the bottom-line by improving productivity and reducing costs. This can be accomplished by the automation of business processes. Business process automation represents the use of digital technologies to digitalize business tasks and reduce operative costs. The digitalization of business processes reduces media interruptions, data losses and optimizes processes. Furthermore, with the current volatility of markets, enterprises increasingly need to be flexible. Business flexibility can be enabled by “Processon-the-Fly”, which represents the shift from fixed processes towards the use of innovative technologies to enable ultra-flexible and ultramanageable processes. An EU transaction bank transformed its countryspecific operating model based on a flexible digital platform. Using a single and flexible platform for business processes, the transaction bank aims at a cost per transaction reduction of 30%. Beside the benefit to realize cost reductions by means of flexibility, digital technologies also improve the required flexibility of organization structures. For instance, enterprise 2.0 tools can release knowledge transfers from the rigid process view, enabling new better ways which need to be flexibly adapted to existing processes. Lastly, digitalization facilitates the business monitoring process for business control. Bombardier saved 9 million $US by digitalizing its manufacturing monitoring process. As Fig. 5 shows, specific actions across bottom-line value drivers can be realized to improve margin with digitalization.

Companies in all industries and regions are experimenting with – and corporate performance is benefiting from – digital transformations. and on provided managerial balance between top-down control and bottom-up autonomy of actions contribute to the rise of corporate performance. While the prediction of the future is a part of a good management, the difference to a performance leadership in any industry is the creation of the digital future by means of a customized digital agenda. “Digitalization drives both; employee productivity and company’s competitiveness.” “Digital Transformation accelerates exponentially and improves corporate performance.” Fig. 7 depicts this positive impact of digital agendas on corporate performance. As not to be neglected, common management approaches, those focus on negotiated goals These digital transformations enable the leverage of digital value drivers and change the trajectory of corporate performance from a mere “rise” to a digital boost. Whether it is in the way individuals 8 work and collaborate, the way business processes are executed within and across organizational boundaries, or in the way companies understand and service customers, digital technology provides a wealth of opportunity to those willing to change their businesses to take advantage of it.
