SAP Study Finds Businesses Lack Digital Training | SAP Business One ERP

Digital transformation is one of the hottest topics among business leaders today. This idea boils down to the imperative adoption of new digital technologies as they emerge and alter both business and society. These days, companies must incorporate new technology into their business models if they want to keep their competitive edge sharp and continue to grow over time. Many growing businesses around the world use SAP Business One to ease their digital transformation, as it is a powerful integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solution designed for small and mid-sized enterprises in the industries of wholesale distribution, manufacturing, and retail.

Because SAP believes adapting to the digital economy is vital to success, they conducted a study alongside the Technical University of Munich (TUM) to determine how businesses plan to embrace technology. The study found that although many C-suite executives (CEOs, CIOs, etc.) agree that digital transformation is necessary today, their organizations lack the digital literacy and training required to adopt a digital transformation strategy. Despite recognizing a skill deficit among employees, very few business leaders initiate training programs that will provide employees the proper education they need to effectively use technology to the company’s advantage.

Understanding how to use technology is the first step toward undergoing a complete business digital transformation. Cornerstone Consulting can help growing businesses take that first step. We are an award-winning value added reseller (VAR) of ERP software products and an SAP Gold Partner with a passion for supporting growing businesses with state-of-the-art software products, technical support, and optimization services.
