TechNavio forecast the global workflow management systems market to experience significant growth in the coming years, expanding at a compound annual growth rate of 28.77 percent between 2014 and 2019. The researchers pointed out that these modern solutions will automate a wider range of processes both within and outside of businesses. Should leaders drag their feet on investing in and deploying these types of solutions, they might risk losing ground to their competition.
CIO Magazine recently explained how IT automation technology is beginning to transform businesses and public sector entities, affirming that there have been many examples of successful deployments in the past couple of years. According to the news provider, county governments have been actively working on automating their processes, IT management frameworks, workflows, and more in hopes of boosting transparency and lowering expenditures.
Considering that local, state, and federal governments have been under pressure to improve their budget utilization, it only makes sense that these tools are becoming more prominent across the country. CIO Magazine offered a few of the core advantages that businesses will enjoy following the proper implementation of automation solutions, including the fact that employees tend to perform better when the technology is in place.
In that same vein, experts and analysts have long asserted that automation’s best use in the IT department and throughout business process management is as an assistive measure rather than being used to replace the workforce. Furthermore, CIO Magazine added that enriched automation can help strengthen the accessibility of core systems, drive digital transformation efforts and ensure that the IT department and business at large are optimally eco-friendly.
When working to digitize and automate workflows and business processes, leaders will want first to ensure that their document management frameworks are performing as well as possible and prepared for the overhaul of other systems in the organization. Should document management policies and practices not be aligned with the demands of these advanced automation technologies, problems might begin to arise related to accessibility, outages, and information control.
With the right solutions in place, modernizing BPM, workflows, transaction processing, and more will be a relatively straightforward endeavor, especially when the adopter leverages the support of a reliable and experienced service provider. These projects must be launched and completed in a timely fashion to maintain relevance in the markets of the future.
