Five Finance Workflows You Should Have Automated Yesterday

Finance Department Workflows to Automate for Quick Wins Using a workflow management platform to automate business processes is crucial to empowering future growth and scalability. Finance departments are ripe for workflow automation as they contain within them a huge range of processes which are repetitive in nature, follow logical parameters such as “approve if less than $x”, and have a lot of manual input, typically controlled by spreadsheets or legacy systems. Here are five finance processes you should already have automated with a workflow management system: Travel Reimbursement Sending in an expense request for travel is not a favorite pastime...

Optimizing Organizational Time through Automating Workflows

Put 410 work days back into your team’s time budget 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,...

Five Key Regulatory Areas Impacting Banks and Financials in 2018

Getting Proactive with Compliance and Creating Competitive Advantage 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. The challenge is to embrace compliance not from fear, but as an opportunity to do what your competition cannot: write compliant business more effectively, and manage the constant change...

No Code Does Not Mean No Power

No Code Workflow Platform and Business Application Creation 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. There are also the issues of security, support, user adoption, and accountability, not to mention as soon as no code applications need to integrate with other business systems, they suddenly lose their ‘no code’ status. Is it possible for... Read More »

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

No Code BPM delivers the power to create enterprise-grade business applications into the hands of business analysts 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... Read More »

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 those which do. I like to think that the distinction ought to be between the various target users of the platforms, and whether they are... Read More »

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. But, what about the business user themselves, such as a Business Analyst who can see the need for change and knows what that change ought to be, but cannot execute and change the process itself because the tools are in the hands of the High Priests of  Technology? The current state of the... Read More »
