Practice Lead Digitalisation

Digitalisation refers to the process of leveraging digital technologies to convert analogue information, processes or services into a digital format. It involves the use of digital technologies such as automation, data analytics, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and other evolving technologies to enhance efficiency, accessibility, and effectiveness. In the context of business, digitalization often involves the digitization of manual processes, the integration of digital tools and technologies and the optimization of data-driven decision-making aiming to provide new revenue streams and value realisation.

Digital Business Transformation: Digital business transformation is a broader and more strategic initiative that goes beyond the digitalisation of individual processes. It involves a comprehensive and organization-wide shift in how businesses operate, deliver value, and engage with customers. Digital business transformation encompasses the integration of digital technologies, changes in organizational culture, the redesign of business models, and a re-evaluation of customer experiences. It is not merely about incorporating digital tools but rather a fundamental rethinking of business strategies to leverage the full potential of digital technologies for innovation, growth, and competitiveness. Digital business transformation aims to create a more agile, customer-centric, and technology-driven organization.

Through Petrogenium’s Digital Practice, we offer access to an exceptional pool of experts combining extensive energy and chemicals experience with in-depth digital expertise, providing a unique, business-centric digital delivery capability tailored for the industry.
