Enabling Digital Transformation with BCG’s Data & Digital Platform

Enabling Digital Transformation with BCG’s Data & Digital Platform

To serve your customers better, improve your offering, and boost your profits, your company—like most firms—might need to engage in a digital transformation. And that could entail reimagining end-to-end digital journeys, revamping industrial plants with digital capabilities, and improving customer targeting with digital marketing and personalization, among other initiatives.

The Future Belongs to Data-Driven Companies

Companies are feeling pressure to undergo digital transformation and re-evaluate their data and digital capabilities. But existing environments and legacy challenges constrain many companies in their attempts to enable digital capabilities. BCG's Data & Digital platform delivers the foundation required to successfully deploy digital transformations.

From Legacy to a Data & Digital Platform

Data is at the heart of all digital transformations, and to become data-driven, your company must modernize its IT legacy—such as ERP and mainframe systems. This will enable a massive ingestion of data and its usage across silos—as well as its accelerated processing.

Today’s latest technologies and new ways of working make it possible to break the compromise between building an industrial platform and achieving rapid results.

  • APIs and microservices increase the modularity of applications across channels.
  • Data lake technologies ensure that companies can ingest and store enormous amounts of structured and unstructured data and process it in real-time using an event-driven approach.
  • Cloud migration delivers ubiquitous access to data.

At BCG, we believe that successful digital transformation requires companies to build an industrial Data & Digital Platform. Such a platform addresses the business use cases and starts small to move fast—and then scales up at an industrial level.

  • The platform decouples the data layer from legacy systems to facilitate data sharing and usage.
  • It provides an environment for developing an interface between digital services and digitized processes.
