their rapprochement as a lever for growth

The time when technology in business was the prerogative of only IT professionals is over.

The time when technology in business was the prerogative of only IT professionals is over. Professionals have taken over to increase their productivity, while IT departments are leaving their space for digital infrastructure development and security.

Like the period of great mechanization at the beginning of the 19th century, digitalization, and more precisely automation, helps to free a person from tedious and thankless tasks so that he can reach his potential in higher-level missions. However, it is in no way a question of “eliminating” the person or falling into the trap of sterile processes, but of promoting the development of vital forces, making them feel more efficient and effective. This way they can focus on what machines can’t do. Thus, by reducing costs, technologies contribute to a more effective global governance that meets the challenges of today’s and tomorrow’s world.

Increase staff…

History shows us through the role of budget controllers that in order to maximize the time spent on data analysis, it is necessary to reduce the time spent on data collection. This is what automation devices allow you to do. But even today, some companies have not realized the full benefits of these tools in the service of human intelligence. They keep multiplying the input of information, the source of errors, and the cost of time as the pace of work accelerates. In fact, there is no time left for reflection and decision-making. Moreover, the data quickly becomes outdated, and the actions taken become useless and costly.

In addition to the issue of repetitive tasks, it is a matter of staff skills. Balanced use, fully adapted to the functioning of the company, associated with a collaborative construction approach, will allow them to perform their tasks as best as possible, acquire autonomy and become more involved. “Therefore, today the focus should be on the introduction of technologies to improve the skills of employees in order to achieve a common goal. »[1], because “it is important not only to make technologies useful and usable, but also to consider that they should increase human capabilities. »[2]

… at the service of the future

The volume of information today is such that specialized tools are needed to make it speak: this is where machine learning comes into play. This scientific field, a sub-category of artificial intelligence, is to allow algorithms to detect repeating patterns or patterns in data sets (numbers, words, images, statistics, etc.).

To sum up, machine learning learns to perform a task autonomously or make predictions based on available items and will improve its performance over time, in particular in favor of customer experience.

Moreover, by simulating scenarios, AI makes it possible to anticipate difficulties and therefore make more accurate decisions faster. Thus, it helps companies to adapt to all new situations that may arise at the same time (closing of the Chinese market, war, inflation, etc.). In addition, it will help to reduce the carbon footprint and thus serve as CSR. By building a near-real-time knowledge base and then connecting them, an organization can develop an action plan while linking its growth prospects. Finally, he will be able to report on his ability to achieve goals, as is done on a financial level.

Technology is a tool that all companies should use fairly to value their employees and help them grow. This remains essential to the progress of the rapidly growing digital economy, and while some professions are being replaced by machines, it is helping to create new jobs by offering career opportunities to the younger generation, who are ardent consumers of digital technologies.
