On the occasion of the turn of the year, a short sign of life from Variantum. Happy New Year!

Every company is forced to reimagine their business in the digital era. A business transformation demands fundamental impact from every part of the company.

Major shifts in competition landscape, customer and employee expectations, as well as technology have woken up companies to reimagine the businesses. Read the four steps approach to the theme below:

 

Learning 1. REIMAGINE OR DIE

Every company is forced to reimagine their business in the digital era. A business transformation demands fundamental impact from every part of the company. The change to happen needs the commitment both from the leaders and from the employees. In practice, this might require reimagining core business models, entering new markets and utilizing assets like data in a new way to end up with an updated vision - bold vision – and to survive as a company also tomorrow and to continue generating value to customers.

Learning 2. FOCUS ON CORE OFFERING

Variantum has proved the successful transformations of the industry leading companies developing roadmaps focused on core offerings, business processes and models as well as boosting ecosystem journeys with new business functions. We believe that successful companies that reimagine their businesses are able to generate enormous value through Offering Management also in 2022. The major trend started a couple of years ago, boosted by Covid-19, and it will continue stronger in 2022. The competition in the market is tougher than ever before.

Learning 3. EMPOWER KEY EMPLOYEES

At the same time, when recruitment of new personnel and retention of existing key competencies are critical to accelerate a digitalization and business transformation, we noticed that the top industry companies are focusing on empowering their key employees to run their job smoothly. They break old-fashioned fixed organizational structures to empower a culture that values the doer over the manager, and small teams over organizational structures. A small team of exceptional people working in agile ways delivers significantly more impact than an army of average talent resources.

Learning 4. VARISUITE

Two building blocks define the core of a modern software technology environment: a cloud platform and a simple process to implement it. Without these, agile teams stall and become stopped in complexity. VariSuite is the enabler to achieve the benefits of digitalization and boosted productivity. The leading SaaS Offering Management suite is allowing you to reimagine your offering with unlimited configuration capability, process automation and digitalization.

May year 2022 be a successful and enjoyable one for all of you!
