Digital transformation, or the fundamental rewiring of the operations of an organization, not only helps companies to compete but also to stay relevant in today's data analytics-driven world. Digital leaders create more value for their investors and shareholders. Simply put, a digital and AI transformation is the process of developing organizational and technology-based capabilities that allow a company to continuously improve its customer experience and lower its unit costs; and over time sustain a competitive advantage. 

Worldwide spending on digital transformation, according to IDC, may touch nearly $3.9 trillion in 2027. While the US is expected to account for 35.8% of this spend in 2023, an almost equal amount is likely to be spent by the Asia/Pacific region (including Japan and China). Almost 35% of the global spending will be focused on using technology to improve operational efficiency in areas such as supply chain management, engineering, design and research, operations, and manufacturing plant floor operations, according to IDC. The Back-Office Support and Infrastructure segment, which includes core business functions such as accounting/finance/billing, human resources (HR), legal, security and risk, and enterprise IT, will be the second-highest spender. 

Customer Experience and Client management are other important use cases, that are likely to account for 10% of all global digital transformation spends, says IDC. Core business functions that make up this area include customer services, marketing, and sales. Mining Operations Assistance, Robotic Process Automation (RPA)-based Claims Processing, and Digital Twins are other significant areas. According to Gartner, five technologies will transform the digital future of organizations --  digital humans, satellite communications, tiny ambient internet of things (IoT), secure computation and autonomic robots. McKinsey believes that given the growing importance of AI in generating business insights and enabling decision-making logic, any digital transformation today will invariably also be an artificial intelligence (AI) transformation. 

That said, while the right combination of digital transformation actions can unlock as much as $1.25 trillion in additional market capitalization across all Fortune 500 companies, according to Deloitte, the wrong combinations can erode market value, putting more than $1.5 trillion at risk. This implies that getting digital transformation right takes more than just ambition and bold investments. As companies are trying to bring together business, technology, and operations to innovate digitally, they are facing a big challenge with digital and AI transformations. To do this, they're training their teams and setting up systems so that many teams can innovate digitally every day. It's a tough job, needing success on many fronts at the same time. 

Experts who will speak at the Mint Digital Innovation Summit will highlight the opportunities, challenges, and trends in these areas across various sectors. They will talk about the strategic possibilities created by digital transformation, the technologies that are “aligned to strategy”, and how companies can adapt to and adopt new processes, resources, and ways of working.

    India needs to strengthen its data protection and privacy laws and not just leave it to “informed consent”, which in most cases is uninformed or simply unavoidable consent. Companies need to get their act in order too, failing which they will face penalties. Laws also need to protect IP, trademark and copyright infringements.

    How AI, GenAI is powering digital transformation across sectors in India

    AI, and particularly generative AI, is upending how companies operate and build value, presenting huge opportunities including content generation, new discoveries (particularly in fields such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals and chemicals), and coding. But it can be easy to get distracted by shiny new toys. The lessons of past technology innovations still apply: value comes from having a clear understanding of business goals and how technology can help meet them. It’s important to experiment and learn rapidly, but it’s also critical to resist the temptation to develop use cases with exciting new technology that doesn’t end up creating value for the business. Building value with generative AI requires the same strong competencies needed for a successful digital transformation, including a clear strategy, an in-house digital talent pool, and a responsive and scalable operating model.

    What it means to become a Digital and AI leader

    AI and GenAI are disrupting the way we live, work, and play. And because digital and AI transformations affect so many parts of the business, CEOs need to drive this transformation and effect a mindset change from the top. Wrong decisions can prove fatal to an organisation. AI, for instance, can help sustainable investors process mountains of data that hold essential information for ESG investing. AI also helps the content, sales, marketing, HR and supply chain departments, to mention a few. But CEOs need to ensure that their organisations are implementing AI and GenAI projects responsibly, failing which can impact valuations and attract penalties too.
