“Digital transformation is not about Being More Digital” – the opening words from Wayne Palmer at Pro2col’s events on the topic this week. “Trust is the foundation of effective digital transformation. It’s a process of continuous corporate reinvention in response to evolving employee, customer and societal need in order to increase reputational capital over the long term.”

Wayne is a leading consultant and author on digital transformation and was speaking in London and Manchester. The events were hosted by Pro2col and Globalscape, aimed at helping IT professionals from UK-based enterprises understand the role of Managed File Transfer (MFT) as a foundational capability of digital transformation.

Ailsa Gibbs who’s an MFT consultant at Pro2col explains more: “MFT is the unsung hero. It’s not an exciting technology necessarily, but it’s an important foundation for supporting an infinite digital transformation. MFT allows organisations to pull data from multiple sources and to combine and transform that data. As the glue between your legacy systems and new cloud based applications, MFT provides a flexible platform which adapts to your changing operational processes and new business models. This allows you to apply your existing investments to create trust and value for you customers.”

The afternoon sessions focused on how delegates could get more out of Globalscape’s EFT Server. It was led by Globalscape’s Senior Director of Product Engineering Roberto Garcia, who demonstrated some of the modules that support digital transformation: The Advanced Workflow Engine (AWE), Insight, the Remote Agent Module (RAM), Workspaces and cloud connectivity.

Reginald Hunter is Technical Delivery Manager for specialist insurer Hiscox and uses EFT Server.

“We started with EFT Enterprise and added a lot of new features: The security modules, Insight and Advanced Workflow Engine,” he explained. “It’s interesting to hear about the different use-cases for EFT. People are using EFT in different ways and some of those technologies and processes are similar to those we are going to be addressing.”
