Digital transformation

One step ahead



​Our approach 

We are studying the digital transformation process of companies and the public sector through practical use cases. Our expertise is mainly directed towards digital service development, considering the viewpoints of several different stakeholders and taking into account the lifecycle management. 

We have developed different tools to support companies to move forward in their digital transformation, including e.g. the digimaturity analysis, as well as to collaborate with customers during the service development process from early concept ideas to prototypes.

Artificial Intelligence Maturity tool

The utilisation of AI is having a major impact on the function of society and business. It is an essential technological driver, which leads, in addition to better productivity, also to new ways of working, processes and business opportunities. The composition of work will change and there will be new professions. A central issue is how we can best exploit the opportunities brought by digitalisation and AI in creating added value and enhancing productivity. This applies to both the private and public sectors. There are also ethical questions to be pondered when the decision-making shifts partly from humans to machines. 

The first step is to understand the level of your organisation’s AI. After that, selecting potential improvement steps becomes possible. VTT’s AI Maturity Tool can be used as a free-of-charge self-assessment web tool, which produces a basic visualisation of AI maturity. It gives a baseline of current AI maturity in six dimensions, which can be used for recognising the most important and urgent development targets depending on the nature of the business and size of the organisation. 

The six dimensions of the AI Maturity Tool include Strategy and Management, Products and Services, Competence and Cooperation, Processes, Data and Technology.

Digimaturity Tool 

Digitalisation has been identified as one of the major trends changing the society and business. Digital transformation is a key enabler for maintaining competitiveness and reacting to continuous changes and pressure. In order to thrive in digitalisation, organisations need to adopt new technologies and innovate their business models. 

The first step is to understand your organisation’s digimaturity level. After that, selecting potential improvement steps becomes possible. VTT’s DigiMaturity tool can be used as a free-of-charge self-service web tool, which produces a basic visualisation of digimaturity. It gives a baseline of current digitalisation capabilities and maturities in six main dimensions, which can be used for recognising the most important and urgent development targets depending on nature of the business and size of the organisation.

The 6 main dimensions of VTT’s DigiMaturity tool include strategy, business model, customer interface, organisation and processes, people and culture, and information technology.

Analysis of DigiPotential

The importance of digitalisation is realised by most companies, but they are often struggling to understand the potential impact and benefits of digitalisation for their company. Digitalisation potential is difficult to assess beforehand since digitalisation may change the original way-of-working considerably, making it difficult to predict what the future solution will be. Furthermore, management and customers require more detailed evidence of the benefits beforehand to accept any investment. ROI calculations are often too laborious, and enough information to complete them may not be available. Thus, VTT has created a practical Digipotential analysis tool, that can be used to identify the most potential processes/services for digitalisation. Based on the analysis companies can identify the digitalisation focus that will benefit them most. They are able to evaluate their decision from different perspectives, and make reasoned decisions on what areas are the most potential ones for the digitalisation or how to prioritise their digitalisation efforts.

The Digipotential analysis evaluates digitalisation opportunities systematically using a defined evaluation form. Potential is evaluated from several viewpoints (i.e., easiness of digitalisation, benefits and volume of service.). The analysis is carried out via interviews of the experts from different viewpoints (substance owners, management, IT) and results are summarised and discussed. Based on the results organisations are able to evaluate process/service candidates from different perspectives, and make reasoned decisions on what procesesses/services are the most potential ones for the digitalisation. The evaluation can be also used to compare different options and thus choose the best approach.
