Back in the days of yore, when the good people of Widget Corporation closed a sale on one of their widgets, that was the end of the sales experience. They would stand at the door as it closed, waving with one tanned hand at the retreating form of their customer and smiling their megawatt salesperson grins, as person and widget retreated into anonymity. And then came the digital world and with that the Internet of Things (IoT) and digital transformation.
In today’s Widget Corp. there is no such end point. Since the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), a door bell is no longer just a door bell – it is a surveillance device with personalized tones and lights. A watch no longer only tells time – it monitors everything from your heart rate and sleep cycle to your steps throughout the day. At this point, even your typical refrigerator has the inside scoop. Inside these widgets are vast arrays of sensors and monitors that generate and gather data for the benefit of both the customer and organization that sold the widget. This allows a feed of information that is continuous, responsive, and, in many cases, transformational.
IoT, Digital Transformation and AI
Just as one cannot speak of digital transformation without acknowledging the role of artificial intelligence, so it goes with the IoT and digital transformation. After all, how else are these massive amounts of algorithmic data that AI analyzes being retrieved? Today’s devices not only report back with data, but are increasingly interconnected as well. This living data opens the doors to rich and creative possibilities in regard to AI – and never has a customer journey been more immediate, responsive or nuanced.
This leads to high demand customers, conditioned by the two prongs of IoT and AI, and their uniter: digital transformation. Today’s satisfying customer journey is a cocktail of positive touch points, individual attentions, predictive analytics, historical data mining, and this is only from their water meter!
If you are still acting like the Widget Corporation of the past, then your customers will suffer for it. It is inevitable that you will lose them to a competitor who has implemented platforms that treat them with the immediacy and individualized attention to which they’ve become accustomed. The first step toward achieving this goal in your organization is to drag your business from the dark ages with a BPM platform that can act in a similar function – by providing a workflow solution that has the integration capabilities to support this new world of the IoT and digital transformation.
