The actors of the ecosystem mobilized to succeed in the digital shift

State as well as private sector actors have now become aware of the need to support the digital transformation which has become a must for all organizations in order to ensure their growth, or even their existence. This is the message conveyed by the speakers at the first edition of the Digital Transformation Forum, organized on Tuesday by Orange, Huawei and AOB Group, in partnership with the Association of Information Systems Users (Ausim), Finatech Group and Morocco SMEs.

More than two years after the transition to digital imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the question should no longer be asked. Digital transformation is an economic, societal and governance issue, which cannot succeed without “holistic, consolidated, synchronized and user-centered collaboration”, says the secretary general of the Ministry for the Digital Transition and the reform of the administrative, Ahmed Laamoumri.

A challenge that requires the development of a real synergy between the public and private sectors, technology suppliers and professional associations and groups.

And to add that digital is an extraordinary tool for development across the country, the digital economy being an essential lever for growth.

A matter of business survival

Small or large, digital brings to each organization capacities to enable it to perform and succeed. This tool changes the way of operating, with transformations at all levels with the watchwords of agility, innovation, performance and data capitalization. The challenges of digital transformation for companies also lead to the transition to a new organizational culture that calls on both collective intelligence and artificial intelligence.
“For many organizations, the choice of digital transformation is motivated by the reduction of the costs of their operations and the improvement of their revenues. Transferring data to public, private, or hybrid cloud environments results in significant operational cost savings, as it eliminates the cost of hardware and IT programs and frees up resources to work on other projects. This transition also makes it possible to strengthen the agility and productivity of organizations, to offer a better customer experience and to improve the collection and processing of information for better decision-making,” observes Hendrick Kasteel.
Indeed, the transition to the Cloud is now a necessity and a prerequisite for organizations wishing to ensure their resilience and continue their development. A practice that is confirmed, according to Madiha Ouafiq, department head of the Promotion of digitalization within Maroc PME. “Covid-19 has changed the way we do things and our habits as consumers. At the risk of disappearing, companies had to make this digital shift. In recent years, requests for support from companies mainly concern digital technology and this proportion is only increasing,” she noted.
Data management, Cloud architecture, legal environment… the first edition of the Digital Transformation Forum was also marked by several highlights. The goal is to exchange good practices and new opportunities with the different ecosystems and to accelerate the disruptive dynamics that emerged during the pandemic by supporting Moroccan companies to succeed in their digital transformation.
