Successfully Integrate Innovation Into Your Digital Transformation

September 18th, 2019Disruptive IT Trends


Innovation is at our core. With nearly 150 years of bringing visionary solutions to market, Unisys helps organizations achieve their goals by putting innovative technology into practice. In a time when technology is changing rapidly, deciding which innovation to bet your business on is a challenge.

According to Gartner Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2019, “Blockchain, quantum computing, augmented analytics and artificial intelligence will drive disruption and new business models.” How do you take these technology trends from buzzwords to business results? To address the demands of the digital age, Unisys is helping organizations implement digital transformation that works.

Digital Transformation Defined
Digital transformation is the transition of an organization’s technology, culture and processes to take advantage of a digital world. Innovation plays a role in building and accelerating this transition. These transitions are paving the way for disruptive technologies like cloud, blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI)—in particular, machine learning—to reinvent policies, practices and experiences. Once the digital architecture is built, optimizations leveraging collective data and computing improve operations and outcomes.

Securing Digital Transformations
As organizations rapidly adopt digital capabilities, the cyber attack surface expands. The ability to secure digital engagements—person-to-person, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine—is fundamental in a dynamic online environment.

When organizations build a platform to drive digital business initiatives, security cannot be an afterthought. Cloud technology provides an adaptable infrastructure that accommodates innovation, delivering anytime, anywhere access that enables a multitude of devices and users to connect to critical data and assets. In the cloud, systems and traffic within a data center are no longer considered safe. A new Zero Trust approach to cybersecurity is required to address ever-evolving threats.

Accelerating Digital Outcomes
With a digital architecture in place, innovation accelerates digital outcomes. Automation, advanced analytics and machine learning leverage the data processing power, distributed management and storage capabilities of the cloud. When used together, these technologies transform automation from simple to sophisticated optimizing how businesses operate and serve customers.

AI-driven automation powers increasingly sophisticated human tasks—by inserting machine learning techniques, a feedback loop is created that learns from data, reduces human error, processes information more quickly and reveals insights through previously unknown patterns. When AI is applied to a process, intelligent automation transpires—continually improving results as more data is consumed.

Integrating Innovation
While disruptive technologies such as cloud, blockchain and AI promise to increase efficiency and offer competitive advantage, each transformation journey is unique. For example, Unisys created a blockchain solution to increase pharmaceutical supply chain transparency, deployed machine learning to detect mortgage risk earlier and streamlined border security with advanced analytics. Digital transformations are successful when organizations leverage an innovative, trusted partner—one with the expertise required to integrate disparate services, systems and platforms securely.

Transformation That Works
For digital transformation to succeed, it must be well planned, instilled culturally and inherently secure. Unisys provides the infrastructure, workforce and security transformation solutions and services to support commercial and government organizations at every stage of their digital transformation initiatives. In the age of everything digital, transformation that works, lasts.
