Why Accelerating Digital Transformation is Key to a Sustainable Future
As the UK and the rest of the world begin to fully emerge from continuous lockdown and the darkness of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s clear that the way businesses operate needs to adjust to the new normal.
Whilst the corona virus pandemic decimated economies globally, it also accelerated the uptake of new, digital technologies within organisations across all sectors.
The Internet of Things (IoT) in particular has provided a huge opportunity for businesses of all sizes to improve efficiencies, reduce costs and improve their sustainability.
But what is IoT? Simply speaking, it’s a system of interconnected computers and devices, machines, objects, or people – transferring data over a network without the need for human interaction.
At Invisible Systems, we use smart sensors or data loggers to collect information from environments and assets, transferring it to the cloud. We then make present all of your data in an understandable and actionable way in our bespoke platform Real-Time Online.
The International Data Corporation (IDC) has predicted that by 2022, 70% of organisations globally will accelerate their adoption of new digital technology. Use of technologies such as IoT can help to improve staff efficiencies, business productivity and reduce the impact on the environment.
Recent cases of extreme weather are a stark reminder that climate change is a very real phenomenon. Businesses that truly embed sustainability within the core of their operations are those that will thrive in years to come.
Consumers of today are becoming more ethically minded, taking into consideration the impact of their purchasing decisions. Today, 28% of consumers have stopped buying specific products due to ethical or environmental concerns and this figure is only set to increase.
65% of UK employees state that they are more likely to work for a company with strong environmental policies and a further 63% stated they would like to learn more green skills that can add value within the workplace.
