Business Agility is defined as “…the quality that allows an enterprise to embrace market and operational changes as a matter of routine.” It’s a buzzword that’s being thrown around more and more these days, as older companies begin to not only adapt to our current digital age, but look forward at the future of business. Despite the new buzzword, the true meaning of Business Agility is not new at all – simply, it refers to a company’s ability to change with the times, and adapt to a new world, new business models, and have forward-looking strategies.
In a technological context, business agility refers to your business’s ability to quickly adapt to emerging technologies and begin using them before your competitors. If you are able to get a piece of cutting-edge tech before your business competitors, and utilize it to its full capabilities, you will have an advantage in your market.
And though just being able to adapt to a new technology doesn’t guarantee success, it seems that it is quite an important factor – according to Forbes, 70% of companies on the Fortune 1000 list over a decade ago simply no longer exist – unable to adapt to a digitally disrupted world, they fell by the wayside.
So if you’re looking to make sure your company has done everything in its power to keep up with the times, and increase your business agility, CDSI is here to help.
How can CDSI help make my business more agile?
Business Intelligence can refer to a whole host of different strategies and concepts, but here at CDSI we see it as just one thing – getting more out of what you already have.
By taking a deep look at your enterprise-level software, existing databases, and reporting tools, we can help you coax more performance out of your existing resources, allowing you to optimize decision making processes, cut costs by eliminating waste, and identify new business opportunities.
And we don’t just grab data and reports from your systems and present them to you as if it’s new information – we pride ourselves on diving deeply into your data and getting a full understanding of your data. We don’t stop at the surface, content with what we see – we attempt to get the full picture of your business’s success or struggles by understanding why – the reasons behind a specific problem, or a troublesome dataset.
Cloud Infrastructure is on the forefront of the minds of many business owners, as Oracle’s cloud can make everything faster, more efficient, and reduce costs and increase time for products or services to go to market. When it comes to the cloud, we recognize that not every company has the same needs. In our boutique consultancy method, we ensure that your cloud architecture is built for efficiency, responsiveness, and cost-effectiveness by using shared, on-demand cloud services that are optimized across different segments of your business.
Best of all, with a more clean, easy-to-understand cloud foundation, it’s easy to roll out and test new products and services quickly, and without a hassle – no more struggling with your resources just to do a simple test.
CDSI also offers software innovation services, and this is one area where even more agile businesses sometimes struggle. Are you still using an in-house program or piece of software that was developed a decade ago? Is it slow? Inefficient? Resource-heavy?
With our team of experts, we can tackle just about any software development project, no matter how tough, or what proprietary technology is in use. Trust us to be able to design a better way, increase efficiency, and make your business more agile for the future.
CDSI is also well-versed in algorithm design and development, able to craft custom mathematical algorithms from concept to production. We understand that robust algorithms can be the key to success for an agile company – especially as system complexity and components grow, and interdisciplinary solutions become merged.
As complexity increases, new algorithms are needed to help cut through the noise, and our team of experts is well-versed in understanding the functional architecture behind complex systems, and understanding the behavior of underlying algorithms. With our deep knowledge of complex mathematical algorithms, we can easily craft new solutions to accommodate growing complexity.
