Nearly two years into the pandemic, it is clear that digitalization is crucial to modern businesses and their ability to navigate the unpredictable business climate. Digitalization is paving the way for organizations to utilize and engage with innovations and R&D activities as they explore new market opportunities. And, business leaders agree.

“Technology, such as cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP), has become an insightful conduit of knowledge for businesses, enabling them to manage through volatility,” Mickey North Rizza, Program Vice President of Enterprise Applications and Digital Commerce at the International Data Corporation (IDC), said.

She added that with the right combination of technologies such as cloud, mobile, intelligent processes, and real-time insights, businesses can utilize data to ensure that customer needs are met, no matter the circumstances.

Shari Lava, Research Director of Small and Medium Business at IDC explained, “Cloud ERP systems are where data come together to provide a snapshot of the health of the business. Cloud ERP systems can now connect, in real time, critical customer data to operational data such as outstanding customer invoices, payroll, and other business expenses such as outstanding supplier purchases. These insights provide a holistic financial view as well as a complete picture of the business, allowing a company to take the necessary action.”
