The role of tech talent when your company is going through a transformation

Reducing business costs, improving customer satisfaction, making data-driven decisions, and boosting productivity are only a few of the benefits of a successful digital transformation. However, many companies struggle to reach the finish line on this journey. There are several reasons why this happens. Establishing a team with a mix of senior and junior professionals who have an appropriate attitude is definitely an important factor that leads to successful transformation. In this article, Anthill will discuss the main responsibilities of a tech team when digitizing your processes and what are the foundations for establishing a thriving team of professionals.

Redefining a business with tech solutions

One of the key roles of tech talent in digital transformation is to identify new technologies and trends that can help the company stay ahead of the curve. This involves staying up to date with the latest developments in areas such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, and the Internet of Things, among others. Tech talent must also be able to evaluate the potential impact of these technologies on the company’s business model and operations, and recommend strategies for implementing them.

Another important role of tech talent in digital transformation is to develop and implement new digital solutions that can help the company achieve its goals. This may involve building new software applications, developing new data analytics tools, or implementing new technologies such as virtual or augmented reality. Tech talent must also be able to work with other departments within the company to ensure that these solutions are aligned with the company’s overall strategy and objectives.

In addition to developing new solutions, tech talent also plays a key role in ensuring that existing systems and infrastructure are optimized for digital transformation. This may involve identifying areas where legacy systems or outdated processes are holding the company back, and recommending strategies for modernizing them. It may also involve collaborating with others to guarantee that all systems and processes are integrated and working together seamlessly.

Building the right team

Through the years, we’ve built over a dozen of R&D divisions for some of the biggest organizations in Europe and the USA such as VMWare, Uber, and CCC Intelligent Solutions to name a few. Based on this knowledge, we established that the right set-up for any project should be a mix of senior professionals and junior talent aiming to take the next step in their careers.

Among senior professionals, one of the most attractive elements for working on digital transformation projects is the ability to build something from scratch. These projects often involve creating new solutions or revamping existing ones, which can be incredibly satisfying for professionals who want to see the tangible impact of their work. Professionals can take ownership of their work, contribute their ideas, and work to deliver solutions that can have a lasting impact on the company and its customers.

For professionals who are interested in leadership roles, digital transformation projects can also provide the opportunity to establish their team and shape the direction of the project. This can be a valuable experience for those who want to develop their leadership skills and can help them gain the experience and knowledge necessary to take on more senior roles in the future.

Another key benefit of digital transformation projects is the opportunity to share knowledge and collaborate. By working alongside other team members who bring different perspectives and expertise to the table, professionals can learn from one another, grow their skillset, and gain exposure to new technologies and methodologies. This is very helpful for young professionals, who are granted access to the hands-on experience of their colleagues, allowing them to advance in their careers and become more well-rounded professionals.

Taking in mind the role of tech talent and how they contribute to the future development of a company, we were confident that Bulgaria is the right place to build an R&D capacity. Companies can tap into a rich pool of tech talent that has a deep understanding of the latest technologies and trends. By establishing an R&D capacity in Bulgaria, enterprises can gain access to this talent and leverage it to drive their digital transformation efforts. At Anthill, we gathered a diverse team of senior and junior professionals that are capable of positioning any company to thrive in the digital economy while also enabling our employees to grow and succeed both personally and professionally.
