Organisational Intelligence (OI) is the capacity of an organisation to derive maximum value from its data. This happens through the creation of flexible knowledge pathways that add value at every stage and to every employee.
“Simply digitalizing existing processes isn’t enough”
Underpinning the concept is the principle of making the right data accessible to the right people and systems at the right time, enabling them to deliver new insights that support robust business decisions. Digitisation can make this happen, but needs a guiding framework vision to ensure maximum return on effort. This is what OI provides.
Taking an OI-led approach allows you to focus on how information flows and is utilised throughout an organisation. Improving flow and access leads to greater empowerment and employee engagement – a strategic benefit that can not only drive continuous progress, but which is extremely hard for competitors to identify and follow.
PFU EMEA has created a three-stage maturity matrix. This simple model shows the key steps involved in enabling digitised data to support the digital transformation journey – supporting business-transforming decisions.
It gives organisations an at-a-glance understanding of where they sit and decide what the next steps may be.
No awareness of Digital Transformation: “What is Digital Transformation?”
Intelligently restructuring workflows through digitalisation and automation enables smarter ways of working whilst maximised data accessibility fuels intelligent decision making across the whole business.
Awareness of Digital Transformation: “How can it apply to my business now?”
Businesses don’t buy tech, they buy solutions. With full API-supported software platforms, data can be pre- processed, analysed and structured so your teams can develop new, smarter ways of working to be more productive and agile.
Deploying Digital Transformation: “How can I grow my business?”
Development of a knowledge creation and sharing culture that permeates every single employee and layer of the organisation that is truly collaborative and continuously fuelled with digitised information.
Good business decisions need robust, breakthrough insights. These come from building the systems and processes that allow in-depth analysis of available data. These systems need an infrastructure that can consistently and efficiently capture and feed them with high-quality data. This requires accurate digitisation of information held in physical documents.
Because an OI approach is all about data access, it can be applied to every process and every person, transforming the way they work – and even how they think about work.
In doing so, it allows organisations to continually adapt to changing conditions and opportunities, making it a continuous source of competitive advantage that is difficult for others to match.
Due to it being the entry point for digitised data flowing into business systems, scanning is widely regarded as the foundation of digital transformation.
And because it is a cost-effective and relatively fast, low-risk technology to deploy, it can be quickly integrated into a digital transformation vision.
It provides fast, measurable operational efficiency improvements, and lends momentum to the early stages of a wider, longer-term transformation effort.
