Position your business for success with DX

Posted on Apr 27 2017 by Darren Farnden | Comments Off on Position your business for success with DX

In our modern society data is king. According to global tech firm IBM, we’re creating 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every single day, from every single interaction that we have with technology. To put it into context, this means that every time a web page is viewed, a smart fridge is opened, a sensor detects rain or a multitude of other ‘everyday’ activities is performed, data is created. This exponential growth in the industry of data means that it’s worth a small fortune, which is great news for the channel – all of that data needs to be stored and get from A to B after all.

Now consider this value in the context of digital transformation (DX), where businesses are moving to virtual platforms, embracing the Internet of Things and employing the best of technology in order to ‘stay in the game’. As it’s now commonly accepted that digitalisation is ‘table stakes’ for business success, opportunities will exist here for some time. Research agency IDC recently predicted that the global annual spend on DX projects will increase from $1.2 trillion this year (that’s a smidge over £930 billion at today’s exchange rate) to $2 trillion by 2020. That’s a lot of technology being adopted that’ll require connectivity to make the best of it.

Autobiography of a DX journey

Posted on Mar 08 2017 by Darren Farnden | Comments Off on Autobiography of a DX journey

The communications industry has seen its fair share of disruption. There are the players who are in a race to the bottom, labelling an increasing number of services provided by ISPs as utilities to be provided at lower cost and lower margin. Then there are those who are disruptive in their own ways by driving their businesses and the channel forward by adopting technologies and digital platforms to improve operational efficiencies, grow revenues and provide a first-class customer-experience. At Entanet, our focus throughout the disruption has been on providing the best possible service and transforming ourselves to firmly place our customers at the heart of our business. While this has meant adopting new and emerging technologies, what we’ve learned throughout our journey is that there’s more to transformation than just the digital element.

Without connectivity DX is dead

Posted on Jan 17 2017 by Darren Farnden | Comments Off on Without connectivity DX is dead

Although the concept of digital transformation (aka digitisation, digitalisation or DX for short) has been around since as early as 2010, it’s really taken off in the last year, with Google searches for the term reaching a peak in November. It’s more than just a buzzword though; looking beyond the hype you can see the trend of businesses of all sizes “investing in new technology and business models with a specific focus on customer experience”. With this focus on providing the best possible customer experience (who, let’s be honest, vote with their feet) it’s obvious that businesses of all sizes must embrace DX in order to remain competitive. The good news is that, as a communications reseller, you’re in a great position to capitalise on the opportunities that businesses going through their DX journey bring because, quite simply, without connectivity DX is dead.

The sun might be out at the moment, but with only 20 weeks left of 2016 we’ll very soon find ourselves in the midst of The Great British Winter and the onslaught of bad weather that this usually brings. For the business owner, this can be extremely costly and not just to the bottom line. Lower staff productivity, absenteeism and damage to infrastructure all have a disrupting impact on business continuity.

In fact, the Chartered Management Institute reported that 77% of organisations were adversely affected by the heavy snowfall experienced during the winter of 2012 when 63% of people were unable to go to work because of travel disruption; 46% of people had issues with school closures/childcare; 43% of external meetings and business trips were cancelled; 40% suffered loss of IT and 27% suffered loss of telecoms.
