Samsung SDS has recently held an online event “REAL 2020” to share the company’s technical capabilities and various digital transformation (DT) application cases.
The event was held online on Sept. 9 and 10 due to COVID-19. More than 7,000 people preregistered for REAL 2020, reflecting the keen corporate interest in digital transformation.
The event kicked off with a keynote speech of the company’s president and CEO WP Hong at the Sangam data center in Seoul, Korea. He introduced the company’s cloud business based on 17 data centers located worldwide and its highest level of security management services.
By switching location to Global Control Center at Pangyo, a city located in south of Seoul, Hong emphasized that Samsung SDS is the best partner for realizing digital enterprise by explaining real-time monitoring of the logistics operation and the company’s preemptive responses to crisis situations through its integrated control system.
In the first session, Samsung SDS proposed DT methodology, taking the DT framework proposed last year at the ‘REAL 2019’ to the next level. This methodology supports entire digital transformation process from digital level diagnosis, strategy establishment to execution, and includes DT diagnosis tools (DRC/DMM) and consulting services.
Digital Readiness Check (DRC) analyzes the digital level of overall corporate management related to customer/market, strategy/leadership, technology/infrastructure, business operation and organization/employee competency.
Digital Maturity Model (DMM) that is specialized for each manufacturing, finance, chemical industry examines digital maturity of each business process such as development, procurement, manufacturing, marketing, sales and management support.
Based on the diagnosis results of DRC and DMM, Samsung SDS derives optimal improvement plans and conducts consulting to establish corporate’s DT master plan and implementation strategy.
