Trasformazione digitale

Digital transformation is a complex process that involves the adoption of digital technologies in all aspects of an organization to improve performance and operations. Today, it is undoubtedly an aspect that should not be underestimated. According to the data from the ‘Digital in Italy 2024’ report by Anitec-Assinform, the digital market is expected to grow annually, reaching a value of €91.6 billion by 2027.

However, digital transformation is not just about introducing new technological tools; it involves radically rethinking business processes, business models, and the organization’s culture.

Increasingly prominent in Italy as well, where 27% of the total resources of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan are dedicated to digital transition, this transformation encompasses three dimensions:

  • People: It requires a cultural change within the organization.
  • Company: Companies need to re-examine their business model based on new digital opportunities and challenges.
  • Technology: IT infrastructure must align with digital transformation goals.

Additionally, digital transformation should include key elements such as:

  • Digital Technologies: Implementing new technologies like cloud computing, big data, Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML).
  • Business Processes: Reviewing and optimizing business processes to increase efficiency and effectiveness, which can include process automation, adopting new business management software, and integrating digital platforms.
  • Business Models: Innovating business models to leverage digital opportunities, such as shifting from traditional sales models to subscription-based or digital service models.
  • Organizational Culture: Promoting a corporate culture that supports change, innovation, and continuous learning, often involving the adoption of agile methodologies and increased team collaboration.
  • Customer Experience: Enhancing customer experience through digital technologies to offer more personalized, faster, and accessible products and services.

Digital transformation is also a critical opportunity for companies of all sizes, as it represents the potential to achieve a long-term competitive advantage.

For instance, Revelis’ i-Plan is an AI solution that enables automatic team scheduling in logistics and manufacturing.
  • Chatbots and Virtual Assistants: Using Natural Language Processing techniques to interact with customers and provide real-time support, addressing inquiries, resolving issues, collecting feedback, and directing customers to appropriate support channels. An example is ARTICA by Revelis, a Text Analytics solution using NLP combined with machine learning and deep learning to analyze user-submitted tickets and support their resolution.
  • Data Analysis and Business Intelligence: Utilizing AI to extract insights from business data for better decision-making, identifying new opportunities, and improving business performance.
  • Predictive Maintenance: Using AI to analyze sensor data to predict when equipment is at risk of failure, helping companies prevent unplanned downtime and reduce maintenance costs.
  • Image and Language Recognition: Employing AI for various purposes such as product inspection, customer sentiment analysis, and automating data extraction.
  • Content Generation: Leveraging AI generative tools to automatically create content, saving companies time and money.
  • Personalization: Using AI to deliver personalized customer experiences by recommending relevant products or services, thus enhancing customer experience.
  • Quality Control: Implementing Computer Vision techniques for precise automatic inspections, allowing thorough product verification. An example is Colibri by Revelis, a platform using neural networks for quality control in industrial settings.
