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.

Digital transformation is driving workflow automation at an increasing rate. Senior business leaders in a recent Cognizant study feel that 25 percent to 40 percent of core workflow such as ERP, CRM or BPM has already been automated.

A Vertical-Oriented Approach to Solving Your Customers’ Problems

Epson Art 0318By Larry Trevarthen, Epson America 

Businesses require the sharing of ideas to be successful. Converting these ideas to and from paper is vital to moving these ideas not only from the mind to the hand, but also from one person to another. Printing, copying, scanning or faxing are the motions of moving an idea around, which helps shape the idea among peers, enhances concepts, and provides the strategies that drive company growth.   

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.
