What is digitalisation ?

Digitalisation is the name given to a development that results from various technological innovations and which opens up new possibilities for data management. It offers a way of providing new products and services and reorganising certain economic value chains. Digitalisation is increasingly associated with digital transformation. Applied to business and the economy in general, it opens up new opportunities, chiefly thanks to the following characteristics:

Opening up new distribution channels and broadening the target audience

Improving connectedness, both within and outside organisations

The automation and monitoring of certain services and processes

More efficient collection and effective processing of business data

Rapid circulation of information, reducing the significance of the concept of distance

The decentralisation of work

When properly controlled, digitalisation leads to improvements in productivity and performance. This is why the Canton of Valais has, for several years, been promoting the development of digitalisation initiatives and projects.
