Does better data really lead to a more intelligent business? Today’s business environment is characterized by an increasingly rapid pace, limited resources and a glut of information. Whether it’s stacked in boxes filled with paper files or consuming gigabytes on a corporate or cloud network, many organizations have more data than they can really manage. As data becomes more difficult to manage, it also becomes more difficult to filter for the information that we need to make important decisions — dumbing down our organizations.

In the past few years, technology scientists have made breakthroughs in AI and machine learning. AI now has the power to change societies and our world for the better. Using AI and big data could one day highlight trends that will help us solve climate change, for example. It will help to automate transport and take over dangerous and mundane jobs. But, in order for AI to achieve these and more it needs to continually be fed data. This is why it is critical for organizations to start managing their data properly now.

You’d be lying if you said there wasn’t a single process your organization couldn’t fix. 

In 2018, fix doesn’t necessarily mean overhaul. Many companies fear process improvements because they assume the experience is synonymous with a great deal of pain and lost resources. But this is simply no longer the case.

Amy Weiss

Enabling the Learning Organization

Kevin Craine Art 0518By Kevin Craine for Workflow
New tools and techniques put the “intelligent” in intelligent information management. 

When Peter Senge’s popular book, “The Fifth Discipline,” appeared in 1990, it was a revelation. Senge went beyond the cheery platitudes of “In Search of Excellence” to dissect, with a psychologist’s skill, the elements of successful business management into practices for building what he called “a learning organization.” Today, the concept is reappearing in the notion of “intelligent information management” and the advanced systems and tools to enable the transformation.

The 3 Cs of Modern Healthcare: Costs, Care and Customers

Digitech Art 0318By Christina Robbins, Digitech Systems 

As of 2016, more than 90 percent of hospitals and 60 percent of physician offices were using Electronic Health Records (EHR) in compliance with federal guidelines.1 Yet, healthcare remains a strong vertical for digital transformation technologies such as imaging, information management and workflow. How will you spot opportunities? 

Workflow is a comprehensive editorial website dedicated to exploring, defining and articulating the ever-changing technologies and business processes of the office technology industry.

As hard-copy information continues its transformation to more dynamic and electronic forms, an increasing number of office and personal devices are becoming part of the larger managed information technology landscape, compelling vendors and consumers of related equipment, applications and services to seek out ways to streamline their processes and improve efficiencies.

Through examination of workflow applications and services and their providers, Workflow informs its audiences of these shifts in enterprise content management (ECM), business process management (BPM) and optimization applications, providing a one-stop repository of actionable news and information for the office technology and managed services industries.

Workflow’s goal is to not only recognize these shifts, but also bring together these disparate worlds of information technology to provide a centralized resource for understanding and mastering the information lifecycle of tomorrow’s office.
