What is DX Solution?

DX solution refers to solving corporate problems by utilizing DX. For example, IT tools can be used to solve problems such as labor shortages and cost shortages.

People outside the company propose IT solutions to the issues faced by the company and support their implementation.

What is DX

So what is DX in DX solutions?

DX is “aiming to acquire a competitive advantage by transforming a company’s existing products and services, organizational structure, business model, etc. through the use of IT technology.”

If you promote DX, you can expect not only to improve your business, but also to gain a market advantage and provide a new customer experience, so you can expect to improve your business performance.

3 benefits of working on DX

First of all, after understanding the outline of the DX solution, I will introduce three benefits of working on DX.

  1. Streamlining operations/Improving productivity
  2. Increase earnings by creating new value
  3. BCP measures

I will explain each.

1.Improve work efficiency/productivity

With DX, you can eliminate the cost of maintaining existing systems and wasted labor, and you can reduce costs and improve efficiency.

2.Increase earnings by creating new value

Highly accurate analysis using data can expand customer needs and convenience, and pursue “ease of use” of services.

As a result, businesses and services have characteristics that differ from their original forms, leading to the creation of new value.

3.BCP measures

BCP (Business Continuity Plan) is a plan for continuing business in an emergency such as a disaster.

Promoting digitization through the introduction of DX will lead to BCP measures, as it will make it easier to contact in the event of a disaster and protect information in the event of a disaster.

4 pre-preparations for introducing DX solutions

Four preparations are required before introducing the DX solution.

  1. Identifying organizational and service issues
  2. Select issues to ask DX solution companies
  3. Cost calculation for DX solution
  4. Effectiveness verification of DX solutions

I will explain each.

Identifying organizational and service issues

First, let’s think about the current organizational issues and service issues. If it is a service issue, a good method would be to survey customers.

If it is an organizational issue, we recommend that you interview all employees as much as possible, not the opinions of management.

Select issues to ask DX solution companies

After identifying some issues, let’s select the issues to ask the DX solution company. It is impossible or time-consuming to leave multiple tasks at once.

Let’s extract the issues to ask the DX solution company from the axis of cost and importance.

Cost calculation for DX solution

After selecting the issues to ask the DX solution company, we will estimate the cost. Once you’ve figured it out, prepare your costs.

Effectiveness verification of DX solutions

Let’s verify the effect of the DX solution. To that end, let’s clarify the goal of what kind of effect you want with the DX solution.

Three points for successful DX promotion

The following three points are important to get closer to success in promoting DX.

  1. Presentation of management strategies and goals
  2. Securing human resources to promote DX
  3. Securing tools for promoting DX

I will explain each.

Presentation of management strategies and goals

Once management has decided on DX promotion, share goals and strategies. Also, present the data that underpins your goals and strategies.

The sooner you share it, the easier it will be to address questions and inquiries from those involved in promoting DX.

Securing human resources to promote DX

In promoting DX, let’s secure human resources for promoting DX.

Various people are needed, such as those who manage the promotion of DX and those who are involved in system construction and introduction.

Since it takes time and money to educate and promote DX with only in-house human resources, there is also a means of procuring human resources for promoting DX from outside.

Think about cost and time allocation, how much human resources are needed to promote DX, and whether it is necessary to procure them from the outside.

Securing tools for promoting DX

We need human resources and resources to promote DX. Let’s secure the tools for promoting DX. Even if you say tools for promoting DX, there are various means such as AI, IoT , VR , and AR.

Decide and introduce the necessary means and tools for your goals and strategies in promoting DX.
