Optimizing Organizational Time through Automating Workflows

How does a team of 25 put 410 work days per year back into their team time budget? In an environment where even simple workflow automation has been carried out, team members will interact with workflow-driven tasks at least 10 times per day, and each interaction will save on average 3 minutes each interaction. 10 interactions x 3 minutes x 25 staff x 5 days = 63 hours per week x 52 weeks/8 hour working day = 410 work days Three minutes is not a lot of time in isolation, but when an employee...

Five Key Regulatory Areas Impacting Banks and Financials in 2018

Many years ago, as a young auditor with Arthur Andersen, I was informed by my managing partner that our role was to record history and not make it. With all due respect to my former boss and mentor, he was wrong because compliance is a route to creating competitive advantage due to the compliance burden becoming so heavy and riddled with constant change.

No code work platforms and business toolkits have typically appealed to the business user who has a need to fix an immediate pain-causing problem. A serious criticism is that no code may be able to provide a quick and dirty fix, but the application cannot be scaled or applied elsewhere within the organization.

Why No Code BPM Appeals to Business Leaders More Than IT Teams

The business needs to get work done fast, and they are charged with justifying the resources they use and the results they deliver with them. IT is tasked with helping the business do more with less, go faster, adapt to how the market works, and stay safe while doing so. There is a disconnect between the business outlook and the IT teams, but neither side is to blame: the game has been rigged against both sides from the start. We know that those closest to the actual work being done should be...

Lean BPM Brings Disruption to Digital Transformation and Enterprise App Development

We call it Lean BPM, but you’ll hear No Code, Zero Code, Low Code, while from Gartner, it is High Productivity Application Platform-as-a-Service, and Forrester splits the whole No-Code/Low-Code niche into Low-Code Development and Mobile Low-Code Development. Confused yet? Adding even further to the confusion is just who Low Code/Lean BPM/No Code platforms are actually for is not really clear. The obvious distinction is between those app development solutions which require no coding ability and...

Differentiating Between Low Code BPM Platforms

Low Code BPM has promised to deliver business apps faster and make the process of Digital Transformation faster, easier and smoother. The problem Low Code BPM platforms have is that they are still largely targeted at the professional developer, and making their life faster, easier and smoother.
