Digital Acceleration and Sustainable innovation

Your trusted Partner for your Digital Transformation & Continuous Innovation Journey

In today’s digital era, every company will soon become a technology company in order to efficiently make, deliver and market its product. However, over 70% of companies that tried to implement a Digital Transformation failed. The reasons vary, most of them pointing towards a lack of a company-wide digital culture, severe and ever-growing digital skills gaps, significant lack of innovation capabilities and failure of technological adoption.

Digital Transformation is less about technology and more about people. When leaders think about investing in technology, they should think first about investing in the people who can make that technology useful.

A company’s ability to adapt to a digital future highly depends on developing the next generation of skills, closing the digital skills gaps, future proofing success via a change towards a digital culture, adapting in digital-oriented organizational structures, aligning digital strategy & infrastructure and imprinting continuous innovativeness onto the company DNA.

The future is digital and there are structured efforts to ensure a global digital readiness. Greece is approved to receive EUR 32 billion funding from the European Recovery Fund for investments in green & digital transformation and upskilling/reskilling and especially in SMEs, the funding budget reaches 375 million euros, focusing strongly on their digital transformation.

Our DA&SI solutions include six products, namely: Digital Transformation Readiness Assessment & Gap Analysis, Upskilling & Reskilling Implementation, Innovation Factory, Organizational Model Redesign, Digital People Operations & Infrastructure, and Partnerships Integration.

Our offering is a 360 approach, supporting you in your Digital Transformation Journey and ensuring a successful implementation, ultimately boosting your employee’s productivity & innovativeness, company competitiveness and talent optimization.

People Data Transformation - Analytics Solutions

Data-driven growth for future looking organizations

Today, data is an increasing necessity as not one of us can keep up with the pace of digital transformation. Therefore, People data is imperative to address your HR challenges and priorities in order to efficiently and effectively become a player in the competitive digital landscape.

The grand majority of organizations globally are facing important challenges when it comes to People data. Most People data collected is not used for anything valuable or productive failing to provide actionable strategic insights and making an impact to the organization as a whole. Moreover, more than half of organizations are missing the opportunity to successfully leverage their data due to segmented data systems impeding a holistic data overview.
