How Tata Teleservices is helping drive continuity, resiliency, and growth for businesses
Over the last 100 years, businesses have suffered due to many major and minor disruptions such as transformational technology, systemic failures, geopolitical issues, and even wars. But the pandemic that struck the world in 2020 was an unparalleled event in the history of disruptions - one whose impact was felt across countries and sectors. The past year was all about survival and navigating the COVID-19 storm. Most organisations strived to be agile and stay on top of their game by building innovative solutions. Businesses had to relook at how they operated and according to a study by McKinsey & Company, in a matter of just a few months, the crisis accelerated digital transformation efforts by seven years.
And, just when you thought that things were starting to get better, the second wave of the pandemic ravaged the world. This year, survival is off the charts and small businesses are taking incremental steps towards growth by delivering highly differentiated solutions. But this is easier said than done. So, how can organisations stay ahead of their game?
Post continuity, focus on resiliency
Like humans, organisations must also adapt to a changing environment, overcome setbacks, and take adversity in stride. The organisations that stand out do so because of the way they responded to the crisis in the short term while their long-term strategic vision remained intact regardless. In other words, if you want to be a resilient business, you need to withstand, adapt, and thrive in the face of shocks whether they are internal or external and known or unanticipated.
In the event of an external incident, you need to enable business continuity by ensuring that operations and core functions continue and don't go offline. The third factor that can help an enterprise survive is incremental growth. You need to reach a stage where you seek expansion and additional options to create value and keep up with the times.
One of the most obvious sustainable changes business leaders can make is accelerating their shift to digital methods. Today with 'work from home' being the norm, there's an increased use of web conferencing, collaborations with other teams, automating processes, etc. The adoption of the right tools and services will be the key to business resiliency.
