Digital Transformation of Traditional Industries:its Pattern and Path


In recent years, due to the rapid development of IT technologies such as cloud computing, big data, and artificial intelligence, and the rapid integration with traditional industries, an industry transformation brought about by digital transformation is booming. Under this background, the Development Research Center of the State Council Management World Magazine carried out a specific study on the " Digital Transformation of Traditional Industries:its Pattern and Path".

This study can be divided into 6 parts.

The first chapter mainly discusses the connotation of the digital transformation of traditional industries, from the background and definition of digital transformation, the framework and analysis of digital system framework, the application of digitalization, the mechanism and value of digital transformation, and the evaluation standards of digital transformation degree. In this section, the definition of digital transformation in this report is given in this section: Using the Next-Generation Information Technology to Build a Closed-Loop of Data Collection, Transmission, Storage, Processing, and Feedback to Open Data Between Different Levels and Different Industries Barriers to improve the overall operating efficiency of the industry and build a new digital economy system. From the perspective of business processes, digital transformation can bring the following values to the industry: (1) Iterative IT systems, improve business agility; (2) optimize the production process and increase production efficiency; (3) extend the length of the industry chain, expand services Link.

The second chapter mainly discusses the international experience and enlightenment of the digital transformation of traditional industries. It thoroughly studies the national strategies and digitalization of digitalization in the United States, Japan, and Korea, and summarizes the characteristics of digitalization in different industries. We look forward to these experiences. The summary can provide a useful reference for the digital transformation of Chinese traditional industries.

Digital transformation is an important approach to the digital economy society. It is an important process of deep integration of IT technology and society. It is widely used in the primary industry, the secondary industry and the tertiary industry. The third chapter discusses the practice of digital transformation in China's traditional industries, summarizes and analyzes the achievements and deficiencies in the digital industry practice in the automotive, petrochemical, clothing, and home appliance industries, and summarizes the existing digital transformation of traditional industries in China. main problem.

Based on the above analysis, the fourth chapter summarizes and proposes the major modes and supporting conditions for the digital transformation of China's traditional industries, and puts forward an important point: To gradually promote the digital transformation of China's traditional industries, we must first change the digital management and construction methods of enterprises. With a new and scientific theoretical system as a guide, enterprise architecture theory drives management and upgrades, enabling digital transformation from local planning and design to overall planning and top-level design, and finally to the track of sustainable development.

The fifth chapter first proposes the strategy of promoting the digital transformation of China's traditional industries from the three dimensions of the country, industry, and enterprise. Combining with the actual industry, the national level must strengthen forward-looking thinking and strategic deployment of the digital transformation of traditional industries, form a “two-wheel drive” of digital and industry, and create a national digital transformation diamond strategy that leads, two environments and one guarantee. “One lead” is to give play to the country’s major leading role in digital transformation and upgrading. The two environments refer to the integrated infrastructure environment and institutional construction environment. One guarantee is to incorporate talent education into the national strategy of promoting digital transformation and development. Basic education, vocational education, vocational training and other aspects have comprehensively enhanced the protection. At the industry level, we must take the digital transformation platform as the core, strengthen the data-driven capability, and use IT architecture transformation as a means to realize the automation, standardization, and platformization of information from the standardization of information to knowledge, and form a platform digitalization strategy and digital transformation strategy for the industry. A cross strategy to promote the development of the industry as the main line. At the enterprise level, it is necessary to implement lead/following strategies or open/closed strategies, respectively, based on the scale of the company's strength, industry attributes, and stages. Second, the basic principles of digital transformation are proposed from the dimensions of economy, applicability, and inclusiveness. Finally, based on the characteristics of informatization in traditional industries and the different stages of informationization, we propose a step-by-step implementation path for digital transformation, which can be summarized in the following four stages: First stage (2018-2020): Pilot for digital transformation, second stage (2021-2025): Digital transformation of SMEs, Phase 3 (2026-2030): Integration within the company to the industry, Phase 4 (2031-2035): Building a complete ecosystem.

The sixth chapter proposes eight aspects: building a strategic system for the digital economy, improving digital infrastructure construction, forming a complete system security system, forming a digital industry structure for the coordinated development of large and medium-sized enterprises, and constructing an open, collaborative, and integrated digital ecosystem. The major measures for the digital transformation of traditional industries.

In summary, this study seeks to make a panoramic depiction of the various dimensions of digital transformation, and to focus on the application of parts of international experience that conforms to China’s technological status and industrial reality, and conducts in-depth analysis of problems existing in China’s corporate practice, and strives to Countries, industries, and enterprises have put forward effective development strategies at three levels, so that Chinese enterprises have experience in advancing digital transformation, policies are available, plans can be implemented, and the results can be expected. In the context of a new era, let traditional industries Can take advantage of the opportunities of digital transformation to rejuvenate and promote the healthy, steady and sustainable development of China's economy.
