"...We started with a period of research on our online output between 2014-15. We discovered that we had produced over 365 pieces of editorial content – and that 65% of it had been viewed less than 500 times. For context, our most viewed article has been read over 70,000 times – so we could see clearly that our content wasn’t performing well. We discovered too that on social media, although a huge amount of resource was going into it, much of what were producing was not resonating with audiences. Engagement was low..."

Introduction

Digital transformation, the integration of digital technology into business areas, has become a part of today’s business processes and operations. Beyond this, digital transformation leads to major changes on how a business operates and delivers value to its customers, as technology achievements integrate into current processes.

Digitalizing processes

Business processes may consist of sub processes and tasks that run through several functions, which in turn may be managed through distinct applications. Entities, such as customers or vendors, may have different application repositories to store parts of their master information. Processes often require user intervention such as approvals, validations, rejections etc. to proceed and may handle business rules and become intelligent, with machine learning techniques.

Integration platforms supporting such processes should be based on an architecture that provides the corresponding end-to-end capabilities and fulfills necessary design principles for digital transformation to be feasible. It should also provide the framework for incorporating workflows/human interaction modules easily, as well as monitor, evaluate, and easy readjust modules, necessary for adopting intelligent modules and exploiting the benefits of process automation.

Enterprise Integration Architecture

Integration projects are large projects involving several partners, applications and technologies, and they often demand handling complicated challenges. Enterprise-Service Service-Bus-based platforms can face these challenges more efficiently and provide the necessary features, such as:

  • Performance, scalability and high availability
  • Connectivity industry standards support
  • Code abstraction and high-level development environment
  • Transaction processing, with guarantee message delivery
  • Security
  • Drill-down monitor and reporting

Contrary to on-premises integration installations, if best practices have been followed, cloud installations require less initial costs, exploit better flexible resource management capabilities, and they address the needs of mid or small-scale businesses as well.

Here are two examples on how enterprise integration can assist your digital transformation. The first one deals with master data integration and management, providing an essential basis for analytics, while the second one deals with integrating SAP Success Factors, a typical human resources digital transformation example, a function that contains sensitive information which very often being difficult to be measured
