I piani di digital transformation

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 10 agosto 2019

London, UK. Secondo il 2019 Digital Means Business Report rilasciato da NTT Ltd. solo l’11% delle organizzazioni sono realmente soddisfatte dei responsabili della trasformazione digitale, sebbene tre quarti di esse abbiano già intrapreso il percorso di trasformazione.
Le organizzazioni di tutto il mondo stanno apprezzando i vantaggi della trasformazione digitale ma è ancora forte la convinzione che questa evoluzione richieda cambiamenti radicali e di vasta portata per raggiungere il fine ultimo. Questo scenario, se combinato con la mancanza di una leadership fortemente orientata alla trasformazione e di un’attenzione sul cambiamento della mentalità sta rallentando molte aziende:Circa il 71% delle aziende, all’inizio del proprio percorso di trasformazione, è ancora convinto che una completa ristrutturazione del business e dei modelli operativi siano il presupposto della trasformazione digitale.Solamente il 49% degli intervistati crede che il proprio gruppo dirigente abbia le competenze adeguate per gestire l’attuazione della trasformazione digitale.L’assenza di executive sponsorship emerge tra i principali ostacoli per il successo trasformativo.Questa carenza evidenzia la necessità per i manager di cambiare la loro visione, creare un ambiente differente e stabilire nuove priorità comportamentali e nuovi indicatori di prestazioni per indirizzare un approccio alla trasformazione più proattivo, tattico e incrementale.Emerge dalla ricerca una diretta correlazione tra la maturità digitale e la capacità di concretizzare costantemente la trasformazione digitale in valore tangibile. Anche qui, si rileva una carenza percettibile di allineamento tra i team IT e il business:Solo il 29% delle organizzazioni sta interpretando la trasformazione digitale come sforzo collaborativo tra il business e l’IT.Se il 42% degli intervistati afferma che il business e l’IT stanno adempiendo ai loro compiti in modo più integrato, supportato in parte dall’introduzione della figura del Chief Digital Officer, solamente il 12% si dichiara pienamente soddisfatto dell’effettiva esecuzione della pianificazione.Circa la metà (49%) dei progetti di digital transformation sono ancora guidati dall’IT Wayne Speechly, VP of Advanced Competencies, NTT Ltd ha commentato: “Le organizzazioni stanno ancora cercando di capire come modellare il proprio business per gettare le basi di un futuro connesso. Il digitale crea le opportunità per generare un valore costante che deriva dalle iniziative di trasformazione all’interno di tutto il business. Le aziende dovrebbero focalizzarsi meno sul perfezionamento di un imponente piano digitale e attuare maggiormente misure ponderate e iterative nel percorso trasformativo per creare valore e garantire la chiarezza necessaria per intraprendere i passi successivi. Sotto molti aspetti, il peggior nemico per un’organizzazione è l’organizzazione stessa. Per questo motivo, ogni cambiamento deve essere supportato da una leadership pragmatica e consapevole del fatto che in prima persona dovrà abbracciare il cambiamento.”La ricerca ha visto coinvolti più di 1.150 executive, di 15 paesi tra Nord America, Europa, Medio Oriente & Africa e Asia Pacifica, e appartenenti a 11 settori di mercato. I risultati che ne derivano forniscono preziose informazioni su come questi leader percepiscono le opportunità di business generate dalla trasformazione digitale, le sfide nell’offerta sperimentate nella realizzazione della strategia trasformativa e il valore raggiunto.E’ possibile scaricare l’executive guide del 2019 Digital Means Business Report presso sito web dedicato.

Research reveals lack of common language in value transformation of U.S. health care

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 19 giugno 2019

Today’s U.S. health policy initiatives, including those from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, are aiming to derive more value from the health care dollar. This involves a shift from reimbursement based on volume to reimbursement based on the value of care delivered.With this shift comes a new set of terms being used across the industry, like value-based care and population health. Yet these terms have been found to hold different meanings for different stakeholders, and that has a variety of consequences for health care professionals, health care policymakers, patients, and payers, to name a few.
Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), one of the nation’s leading health and well-being companies, and Penn Medicine, set out to find consensus on three terms. Through the use of a Delphi research method that convenes a panel of experts to arrive at a group opinion or decision, lead researcher Marilyn Schapira, MD, MPH, led the panel through multiple rounds of surveys to achieve broadly applicable definitions for three terms: value-based care, value-based payment, and population health.After more than six months, the Delphi panel reached consensus on the term value-based payment but, after three rounds of ratings, was unable to arrive at a consensus definition for value-based care and population health, though distinct areas of agreement and disagreement were made clear. These findings were presented June 3 at the AcademyHealth Annual Research meeting.

Catella: European retail – investor`s favourite facing a transformation

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 13 ottobre 2017

stockholmStockholm. The new Catella Market Tracker “European Retail Markets – Investors’ favourite facing a transformation” shows the increasing pressure on European retail formats from e-commerce. But countries such as the Nordics, France and the UK are evading this negative trend. Examining the transformation of shopping centres shows that traditional retail space is being continuously replaced with food service and event space, in new buildings and, particularly, in the refurbishments being made by value-add investors.The largest distortions can be found in the textile trade, which suggests that not all products are affected in the same way. “Conversely, grocery stores are experiencing strong interest at many shopping destinations, with a large range of products and high-quality presentation, making in-store shopping attractive again,” says Dr. Thomas Beyerle, Head of Group Research at Catella.The results of the new Catella shopping centre Ranking show
– The Nordics (Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark), the UK and France lead the ranking
– With a density of approximately 900 square metres per 1,000 people, Norway provides the best coverage of shopping centres across Europe.
– The retail turnover index shows that most of the European retail market is flourishing, and that it displays stable growth rates in the UK, Sweden and France.From the investor perspective, Beyerle concludes that, “Independent of the structural shift in retailing, the established stock of shopping centres in the top-ranked countries combined with an estimated undervaluation of rents to offer investors an opportunity in retail to generate decent yields through moderate capital investment.” The market place concept will remain the leading shopping destination, be it a European city centre or simulated in a shopping centre. Structural distortions stem from a lack of innovation and underestimation of the expected consumer digitalisation. catella.com/research.
