Creating a Digital Operations in Hours
Undergoing digital transformation, as you may know by now, is a painful yet rewarding endeavor. Whether you’ve started going digital years ago or you’ve suddenly decided to digitize your operations recently because of the pandemic, it’s an undertaking that is definitely not for the faint of heart.
Traditionally, creating digital operations meant setting a 5-year roadmap, setting aside thousands of dollars in your budget, and having custom software to run your entire business (or at least your most critical workflows). That last bit has been a hot topic in the past few years because building software from the ground up has been proven to be long-drawn, expensive, and complex – especially for non-tech companies who are undergoing digital transformation. Such companies don’t have their core competency in building software, although we are seeing a lot of the bigger players transitioning from brick-and-mortar businesses to (pseudo) tech companies. Mid- to large-sized companies are slowly catching up, thanks to the growing popularity of low-code and no-code platforms, which help them address the very issues surrounding building software from the ground up. For the purpose of this article, we won’t touch on low-code platforms because as the name suggests: it still requires some coding. With a global dearth of coding talent, this can be a very huge headache for companies of all sizes, so let’s take it out for now.
While no-code platforms are here to stay, they have a myriad of ways of going about building software and each of them has its own set of benefits and shortcomings. One major downside of using a traditional no-code platform is they tend to produce solutions that are too simple. Business processes, depending on the departments involved and the industry, can be very complex and these no-code platforms tend to fall short in being able to “connect the dots” between the interaction point with customers (and other third-party stakeholders like partners or vendors) and the internal workflows that are triggered by each ticket/request/inquiry/order. These days, it’s no longer about creating a digital façade of having some way online for people outside the organization to connect with people inside the organization. While some of you may have already employed some version of a digital façade (such as using a messaging app like Whatsapp or Viber or even Facebook Messenger, or some online form using Google Forms and the like), it’s the internal processes – that are still largely manual – which is riddled with so many inefficiencies and delays that still do not provide the true transformation that most organizations need. And we haven’t even gone into some of the platforms’ challenges when it comes to automating repetitive tasks and integrating with your existing systems.
With ground-up custom software development taking at least 6 months to produce anything close to digital operations, and with no-code platforms – while able to whip something up in days or hours – still unable to cater to more complex workflows we are stuck with the big question: How can I have digital operations in hours?
