The recent pandemic has made amply clear the importance of the cloud in enabling digital transformation for businesses. Given its inherent capability to scale and be resilient, the cloud has become a critical lever of transformation for all businesses.

As per a Gartner report in 2021, worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services is expected to grow 18.4% in 2021 to total $304.9 billion, up from $257.5 billion in 2020. The proportion of IT spending shifting to the cloud will accelerate in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis, with the cloud projected to make up 14.2% of the total global enterprise IT spending market in 2024, up from 9.1% in 2020.

As the demand for cloud-based solutions continues to expand, businesses need to adopt a comprehensive cloud strategy for their enterprise. Without it, the transformation will not be complete and could result in cost and operational overheads.

So, what does one need to develop an enterprise cloud strategy?

At Great Innovus, we recommend a 5-stage approach to a cloud strategy as mentioned below:

1 Define your objective for the cloud

Like with most other technology solutions, the cloud solution has also to be specific to your business and its needs. So, it is essential that you start with clear goals on what you want to achieve from the cloud. You can begin by listing down the problems/challenges in your current system to get to that. Some of the critical parameters that could come out of this exercise could be improved customer experience, Reduced time to market, cost optimization, or Competitive advantage. There are also other additional advantages that the cloud can provide in terms of Backup & Recovery and security.

2  Baseline your As-Is state

Having identified the goals for cloud adoption, the next step would be to assess and baseline your organization's current state of IT/Application infrastructure. Doing this will help you identify the order of priority for migrating them to the cloud and any specific dependencies that need to be addressed before moving them to the cloud. It would help to consider which of your business functions would go to the cloud-first depending on various parameters, including criticality, dependencies, and ease of migration.

3 Choose your cloud deployment model

Based on your business objectives and the type of apps to be moved to the cloud, you can choose from one of the following cloud deployment models:

  • Private cloud
  • Public cloud
  • Hybrid cloud
  • Community cloud
  • Multi-cloud

4 Define your cloud migration strategy

The most important challenge while moving the applications to the cloud is to decide whether to rehost or redesign or replace them. With rehosting, you deploy the application from your current infra to the new cloud infra. Certain applications may have been designed in line with the existing infra-architecture. Such applications will need to be redesigned before moving them to the cloud. Another benefit of this whole activity would be to identify applications that are to be discarded, and you can replace them with applications built on the latest technologies.

5 Cloud governance

Having moved your applications to the cloud, it is important to have a clear plan to monitor critical factors like performance, cost, and security. A cloud governance framework helps your organization deliver consistent outcomes from your cloud adoption.

It focuses on three primary parameters:

  • > Business objectives
  • > People (the team that will define, implement, and maintain)
  • > Tools

The most crucial cog though in this journey is to identify your right partner for this all-important transformation. We at Great Innovus have a team of experts delivering cloud solutions right from ideation, design to implementation and support.

Just drop us a message on your needs, and we will be happy to help you.

If as a business, you are facing any of these following problems, it is an indicator that you have outgrown your existing set of tools and are in need of a more comprehensive technology solution.

        > There is no single source of truth and your systems are in silos

        > Difficulty in handling the increased transaction and inventory volumes

        > Extensive efforts to prepare reports and requires collation of data from multiple sources

Introduction 

Whether your business has just begun or has already been supporting your customers, identifying the right technology solutions to keep your business moving forward is vital to your survival and success. When it comes to small businesses particularly, it’s important to optimize the technology resources at your disposal. 

We at, Great Innovus, are fully aware of this and have been helping customers like you across industries including eCommerce, ISC, and BFSI to achieve their business goals. Through a combination of solutions, and services we have been enabling enterprises of all sizes, to run efficiently and improve their business outcomes.

Today, more than ever, we all have realized that technology solutions are the foundation for practically any type of business, right from small startups to enterprises. Regardless of their vertical, businesses are looking for the right technology solutions partner who can relieve them of the IT worries and let them focus on their core business. 

Technology solutions are needed across a variety of functions within an organization including production, management, data analysis, and business processes. Simply put, this infusion of technology into your everyday work is what is called as Digital transformation. 

Digital transformation is now the most talked-about thing among businesses today. According to a Google-KPMG report, digitally enabled SMBs boost their profits up to twice as fast compared to their offline competitors. Digital transformation empowers businesses to optimize their operations, expand their customer bases, and improve their top, bottom line growth.

Digital Transformation – Where to Start

At the heart of digital transformation initiatives is data. Many organizations tend to have the data in silos and in multiple formats that need considerable manual effort to collate, consolidate, and analyze before a meaningful business decision can be made.

The time of business owners can be spent more efficiently, if they have a better view of operational efficiencies, customer expectations, market trends, and competition landscape. With stiff competition in every segment, it is important for businesses to get ahead of the curve with data-driven decision-making process.

Large businesses have been investing in digital technology solutions to improve their business functions and further their dominance in the market. Be it business process automation, or predictive analytics, modern organizations are digitally driven, and it's time that SMBs too transition from their traditional form of operations.

Traditional organizations have been depending on basic tools like spreadsheets to capture, analyze, and report data. But the advancements in technology and customer expectations demand that businesses adopt technology and offer state-of-the art services to the customer.

The first step towards digital transformation for your business is to start discussing about it with your core team and identifying the existing pain points. Also, you need to identify the list of business processes that need to be digitally enabled and prioritize them based on impact.

Some questions to consider would be:

  • What areas are affecting my ability to reach the critical business goals?
  • Which of the operations consume more time and effort?
  • Which of the processes can be technologically updated?
  • How is my competition doing it?

The Why of Digital Transformation

Once you have answered these questions and analyzed the answers, you will have a clear index of the areas to go digital and the order of implementation, based on priority.  Typically, SMBs tend to have the following reasons, for their digital transformation initiatives.

Cost Efficiencies

Businesses invest in digital solutions to optimize business processes and automate where possible, resulting in optimizing cost.  Priority should be accorded to breaking down silos and ensuring that internal departments collaborate seamlessly. An enterprise dashboard could provide deep insights on the functioning of various internal departments and indicate opportunities for growth.

Operation Excellence (OpX)

Operational excellence means that an organization that conventionally performs its core activities transforms into one that performs value-driven activities efficiently, based on relevant data. Digital transformation helps businesses achieve operational excellence and move towards a more autonomous operation. Advanced analytics, AI, and ML solutions can offer real-time understanding of the current condition of your equipment and predict its future performance and potential issues. Such a system not only helps preempt downtimes but also meet customer commitments.

Business growth

Technologically enabled businesses alone, are better placed to compete and grow in the present-day market. Without adequate technology infusion, growing in scale will be a huge challenge for organizations. Digital transformation helps break the physical and geographical boundaries for organizations to grow rapidly. For instance, offering your product/service in a hitherto unserved geography can be realized with a robust ecommerce solution.

Organizational Productivity

It’s important that all your business functions communicate with each other seamlessly. When your business applications (e.g., Marketing, finance, HR, customer support) are interconnected digitally, you turn them into efficient systems. It not only enhances cross-collaboration but also build a customer-centric

Remote work culture

July 13, 2021 | Service | No Comments

In today's digital world, company culture has become more important than ever. More than 56% of employees believe that good workplace culture is mor important than salary.

What is remote work culture?

Culture can be defined as the social order within an organization. It shapes the company's behavior, attitude, and employees. The company’s cultural norms define what is accepted, rejected, encouraged, and prevented within the organization. When properly aligned with individual needs and values, culture can help achieve common organizational goals.

The following are the main elements of a remote working culture that organizations need to consider:

Technology This is a technology that helps remote employees stay in touch, and it forms a large part of the remote working culture. More than 82% claimed that workplace technology is the decisive factor when considering a new job. In addition, if millennials find that the technology used in the workplace is substandard, they are more likely to quit their jobs.

Flexibility When employees work remotely, they want to be able to manage their work flexibly, spatially, and freely. Although it is important for employees not to feel alienated or left out, they should not feel that they have been micromanaged.

Growth mentality no matter where your employees are, the company culture should be friendly and consistent with all of them. In addition, it should provide employees with the right opportunities to grow, learn new skills and explore beyond the boundaries of what they can accomplish.

Why is a remote work culture important?

1.Remote work culture inhibits remote isolation

loneliness is the second biggest challenge facing remote workers. A strong and consistent remote working culture can unite employees and give them a sense of purpose. It also absorbs a feeling of friendship and directly leads to practical actions, such as random check-in and more informal conversations, which helps avoid remote isolation.

2.The remote work culture prepares your organization for future success

Remote work is slowly and steadily becoming the new normal. According to a survey, more than 74% of Chief Financial Officers now plan to keep at least some of their employees remote, even if we have weathered the pandemic and relaxed the body distance norm. Remote work will be able to overcome the growing pain of shifting to new work models and maintain consistent efficiency and productivity.

3.Remote work culture builds long-term relationships

Even if you eventually ask employees to return to the office and fully accept on-site work, the correct remote work culture is a victory for your organization. After all, a strong remote working culture is a strong culture. When you strengthen the team connection between remote employees, it directly translates into better relationships, enhanced trust, and enhanced communication. It not only makes it easier for remote employees to communicate and connect with colleagues in the office but also makes the transition from remote work to office work smoother.

The best ideas to help you build a strong remote working culture

i) Create an environment of trust

Create an environment of trust-to creates a healthy remote working company culture, it is important to communicate all high-level decisions with your team to show employees that you fully trust them to handle their work, even when they are working remotely. After all, trust is a two-way street. Your employees will trust you only when you trust them.

In addition, you should focus more on the output of your employees rather than the total number of hours they spend online. Avoid excessive inspection and micro-management of employees. You should give them space to manage theiwork and only check occasionally.

ii) Share your company’s mission and goals

when everyone in your organization understands the mission and goals you want to achieve, it becomes easier to create the best and efficient remote teamwork culture. You need to find a simple A clear way to describe the company’s mission and the overall goals the company is trying to achieve (short-term and long-term)

iii) Define your remote work policy

Define your remote work policy-remote work or flexible work can mean many different things to different people. Therefore, you need to be as specific and clear as possible about your organization’s remote work policy so that employees always know exactly what will happen.

▶ Do employees have to be online for a certain amount of time every day?

▶ Do employees have access to a certain time zone no matter where they are?

▶ Can employees freely formulate remote work schedules?

▶ Do they need to go to the head office every once in a while?

▶ Do they have an allowance for setting up a family office?

More clarity will only lead to smoother remote work and better company culture.

iv) Prioritize face-to-face meetings

Sitting alone in front of a laptop, week after week often isolates remote employees and alienates them from team members. Although meeting with team members directly is irreplaceable, regular video calls can help bridge the communication gap lot. Team managers should hold regular one-on-one meetings with employees to build better connections, build trust, and celebrate their personal achievement.

v) Regularly collect feedback and make corresponding changes

If you are new to managing remote teams and establishing a remote working culture, you probably did it right the first time. It is always a good idea to ask remote employees for feedback on a regular basis so they can tell you what works for them and what Not suitable.

vi) Use the right tools

The long-term success of remote work also depends on whether you use the right tools to manage your work. The ideal software for remote work is a digital workplace platform, where teams can collaborate, communicate and complete work in a unified virtual space.

Creating a remote working culture is an ongoing process

Cultivating a strong remote working culture to make your employees feel trusted and capable of doing their best job is an ongoing process that requires a lot of time and hard work. Whether you are transitioning your entire organization to remote work or adding a new remote team, you need to be equipped with all the best practices and tools to make the employee transition as smooth as possible. Our idea is to make the most of your culture and promote transparency to create an environment of trust that enables your organization to continue to move forward.

Due to the internet’s large penetration, there is an increase in a large number of technologies and web users. Moreover, it has helped in providing a big opportunity for both the manufacturing industry and consumers as well. In the last decade applications for E-Commerce in the manufacturing industry have evolved a lot from a transaction between a buyer and seller, basic communication, and collaborating medium between various stakeholders.

This collaboration helps manufacturing companies to increase their sales by offering recommendations for online products and promotions. Plus, E-Commerce is an opportunity for manufacturers to experiment with new products without taking any risk. So, for that manufacturing industries hire E-Commerce developer for developing their application for E-Commerce.

In this blog, we will discuss 7 benefits of E-Commerce application in the manufacturing
industries

Provides Direct Access to Customers

Other than having margins for high profits, manufacturing industries can communicate with their customers. Because it allows them to learn from their customers and fine-tune their products in a good way.

Being Innovative

Finding new customers outside the manufacturing industry’s channel frees them from the specs they have to adhere to till now. Moreover, if they have any idea for a good looking product, they act on it by doing an analysis of the product and its iterations as time goes by making the product according to the customer's needs and requirements.

Scalability

A good effective E-Commerce application in the manufacturing industry enables them to scale and grow easily for meeting the market demand and customers requirements by opening new channels for sales and reaching the new market segments on a continuous basis.

Provides Improved Efficiency

By integrating ERP(Enterprise Resource Planning) and other business back-end systems, E-Commerce applications provide various efficiencies marked for consumers. Customers can order online from anywhere and at any time they want to. Moreover, customer services can focus on functions of actual customer services such as shipping costs, timely shipping, etc.

Therefore, manufacturing industries should eliminate the errors and improve the shipping processes and increase the throughput of the order.

More Growth Prospects

A large area provides more possibilities for growth in sales, for that manufacturing industries have to be loyal to their current distributors. Initial problems can be kept aside if they offer products to a different market. So, here the manufacturing industries are not competing with their existing network.

Analysis

E-Commerce application for manufacturing provides the platform for the manufacturing organizations to do an analysis campaign. With the help of E-Commerce distributors and manufacturers can measure and analyze the effectiveness of sales, campaigns for marketing, inventory turns, the effectiveness of customer sales, and engagement of customers. In addition, manufacturing industries can utilize this data for making better business decisions.

Improving Brand Awareness

Just like E-Commerce can help distributors and manufacturers to find new customers. So, it can help in improving brand awareness in for current market place. Developing web pages which should be linked by the search engine is the best and quick way to improve their website’s SEO(Search Engine Optimization) and will help in getting the target audience required.

Conclusion

As for front-end developers, They are vested with a responsibility to deliver rapid, consistent, and excellent websites and web apps. So, to significantly increase the developer's productivity, the below-mentioned tools must be used to help them give the best superior software to make debugging easier and save time at the same time.

Postman

JSON responses and requests will be sent and received for almost every front-end application. The application connects with an API for several functions, such as Login/authentication, the transfer of user data, or even something simple like fetching the current Location coordinates of the user.

Postman is one of the best JS tools to debug requests and responses. It offers its services on various platforms such as macOS, Windows, and Linux. It quickly and easily sends REST, SOAP and GraphQL requests directly. Postman helps you in tweaking requests, analyzing responses, and debug problems & helps in ensuring the problem lies with the front end or the back.

Developer Tools in Web Browsers

Every web browser in use is now equipped with powerful tools to assist in debugging applications. It can be as simple as console statements with console.log(), popups with alert(), or even pausing code executions with debugger statements. These tools are very helpful in effortless and easy debugging tasks.

CSS styles inspector or the network inspector can be used to make the debugging easy and smooth.  Conventional Google search helps in finding out more about the developer tools for your browser.

JSON Formatter & Validator

Syntax errors or keys with incorrect values in unformatted JSON are very difficult and hard to read. Having missing line returns and spaces will be challenging to read and spot errors in minified JSON files. You need to be able to quickly scan that object and check for errors in formatting or content.

 Need to expand each and every object & format it manually to fix this. This is time-consuming. Rather than following the above one, we can use the JSON Formatter & Validator tool and simply insert the minified JSON and get a correctly formatted version as output. This tool can validate the JSON to RFC standards as well.

JS Bin

JS Bin is one of the best JavaScript debugging tools available. It allows the user to test and debug scripts along with other people. You can run the JavaScript, see a debug console and the output of the scripts, add libraries and dependencies, and much more. Pro accounts allow user to take their code private.

In JS Bin, you can test the functionality of a small subset of your JavaScript in an isolated environment, without having to set an entire environment for it. When testing in JS Bin, you can be sure that your results aren’t tainted by conflicting scripts or styles from other parts of your application. Another key feature of JS Bin is the immediate result you get from altering your JavaScript, HTML, or CSS. You can see your changes in real-time. You can copy some code to JS Bin and have a working (or not working!) demo in no time.

BrowserStack

BrowserStack is a Collection of tools that will assist in mimicking the exact environment where the user experienced the error.

With a large combination of device + operating system + browser, this tool is a must-have for front-end developers. This tool can be used as an error-logging tool. When you log an error, you can reproduce the exact scenario by referring to the environment and recreating it in BrowserStack.


Lower pricing for freelancers and free licenses for open-source projects.

JSHint

This tool detects errors and potential problems in JS code. Static-code analyzing tools such as JSHint helps developers spot problems that are very hard to find.

JSHint scans a program written in JavaScript and reports commonly made mistakes and potential bugs. The potential problem could be a syntax error, a bug due to implicit type conversion, a leaking variable, or something else entirely.

Conclusion

Front-end debugging can often be challenging, especially if the development process has resulted in a high bug-to-code ratio. Further, if you wish to hire from our team of dedicated front-end developers, connect with us.

In 2017, the value of the retail industry was US$2.346 billion. During the forecast period (2018-2023), the compound annual growth rate is expected to be 5.3%, and it will reach US$31,888.0 billion by 2023.  More than anything the retail industry felt the repercussions of COVID-19: physical stores closed as lockdowns forced shoppers to stay away, and millions of retail employees were unable to do their homework.

Retailers are thinking about how this immediate transition can be reacted to. They want to learn how innovations can be used to find creative ways of developing new business models and producing more sales.

Therefore, it is necessary to understand all aspects of digital transformation in the retail industry.

While shops have been closed, shopping online has flourished. U.S. online spending in May reaches $82.5 billion, up 77 percent year-on-year an enormous rise, according to Adobe's Digital Economy Index report released in mid-June.

During COVID-19, Italy, one of the hardest-hit nations in the world, announced an 81% rise in e-Commerce transactions since the end of February.

Digital transformation brings major changes, and retailers should have a plan for change management in place.

Rise of new solutions for technology

In order to successfully carry out a complete digital transformation, the foundation must be strong-whether it is orders, products, inventory, a single view of customers, or a scalable architecture that supports dynamic changes in the business. In addition, choosing the right technology that can bring value is also one of the major challenges. 

The trend for disappearing borders between digital and physical is already part of the consumer mindset. Innovations such as the Internet of Things (IoT) or immersive experiences offered by Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) only boost this driver.

What does the retailer need to do?

Retailers with a long history of high street influence will need to work hard to encourage consumers to return to the store. This will mean using a different approach than the one they just adopted to attract customers before COVID-19, but these different approaches should still complement the omnichannel model.

Retailers may be in various phases of their path of digital transformation but are judiciously placed to:

  1. Allowing operational data to generate efficient insights into the supply chain, IT, and consumer requirements.
  2. Deploying tools and processes to serve customers effectively.
  3. Total automation and digitization of existing structures for them.
  4. Migrating their workloads to the cloud and using everything as a service.
  5. Needs to invest in to ensure future growth.
