With the term digital transformation, in Italy, we refer to the context of Quality 4.0 or Industry 4.0, or rather the set of new technologies applied to industry that allow a change in working methods and production processes in an innovative direction.
Organizational models have always adapted to the presence of innovative technological tools since the end of the Second World War. Today, the transformation is much faster and even large enterprises need to grow in an increasingly digitized world.
The future of industry is precisely in the digital world: with these tools it is possible to increase the quality in decision-making, relational and cultural fields, as well as being able to predict changes and scenarios in which it will be necessary to operate.
Digital transformation in the enterprise
Digital transformation affects companies in many ways:
- People, their training and the tools used in their day-to-day work;
- Processes, influenced by new business strategies and contemporary quality certifications;
- Technologies, looking for a solution in order to take advantage of all the data that can be currently collected in the various sectors, channeling them into software and adaptable management systems.
The tools for digital transformation or Quality 4.0 are transversal to multiple types of industries and find their role also within the industry. From blockchain for transparency and traceability of products, to Artificial Intelligence to facilitate processes, up to Machine Learning for the analysis of large amounts of data.
Data and software quality
It ensures the quality of the software used in the company and helps to ensure that all processes and procedures are implemented and recorded correctly. Software that processes large amounts of data must be able to continue to operate under unforeseen conditions, keeping the risk of errors to a minimum or by eliminating it.
Programs can also earn quality certifications by testing and verifying the overall software development process, including source control, change management and code review, as well as releases.
