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.

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.

Elicker Art 0318By Lance Elicker, Ephesoft Inc.  

The reason vertical markets are a focus for sales organizations is that they allow for repeatability. It is much easier to build something and then repeat the process, as opposed to building something brand new each time.

Creating the Right Atmosphere for Change: Q&A With Ulf Persson CEO, ABBYY

speakeasy ABBYYBy Patricia Ames, Workflow


We recently had the opportunity to attend the fifth annual Technology Summit hosted by global intelligent capture leader ABBYY. While there, we had a chance to meet the new CEO, Ulf Persson, and get some insight into the latest changes ABBYY has been making to its structure and strategic direction. We had no idea the conversation would take us through the last 20 years of geopolitical and global market maneuvers — although, given Ulf’s professional and personal history, we probably should have suspected it. Join me in the SpeakEasy.

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