Shifting to digital business means changing your business model using certain supportive technologies. As you enter 2022, it’s crucial that you know which technologies specifically will help your organization enable digital business.
While Aragon predicts that eventually, most technologies will support digital business in some aspect, that reality is a ways off and, as of now, organizations need to strategically map out which technologies have those capabilities.
"Computer vision is coming of age. Years ago, the deployment of a model often required a dedicated team of data scientists. The Prohibitive compute cost and technical expertise required to train and deploy an AI model from scratch is a daunting obstacle to enterprises that might otherwise seek to take advantage of computer vision applications. Now, providers are offering platforms that address this challenge by guiding users through the development process and supplying ready-made solutions for each step of the way." - Adam Pease, Associate Analyst and Editor
While the world continues to become more digital, due to the pandemic, sales organizations are learning and adjusting to digital selling.

A huge increase in eCommerce and online transactions puts pressure on the enterprise to not only be able to handle the increased demand, but to also prove that the transactions that took place were actually agreed to. We’ve seen digital transaction management (DTM) solutions in effect for a while now, but many of these eCommerce transactions happening online are done using clickwrap, a type of transaction that replaces electronic signatures with the act of clicking to check a box or clicking on a button that includes acceptance language (such as “I Agree” or “Accept”). Securing and ensuring legitimacy of clickwrap transactions requires a more sophisticated set of capabilities–enter clickwrap transaction platform (CTP) providers.

AI technologies are finally delivering on their long-promised benefits to the enterprise. However, with the rise of more enterprise AI solutions, CIOs and other business and IT leaders need to be aware of which technologies will be beneficial to their applications and which ones they need to be wary of.

Digital transaction management (DTM) is the first step toward digital transformation, and workflow and content automation (WCA) is the next logical step toward automating business content and winning the race to the digital enterprise.
AI technologies are rapidly becoming more sophisticated and ripe for enterprise adoption. Enterprises who wait to deploy these technologies are incurring costs and risks the longer they wait—but adopting them without a clear strategy in place can also have its own costs and risks.
Choosing to adopt a disruptive new technology at the right time can mean a powerful competitive advantage—but adopting at the wrong time or waiting too long to act can lead to an equally powerful misstep in strategy.
