A few weeks ago, I received a meeting request on behalf of one of our customers directly from an auditor. I know that there are people who dread meeting with auditors, but I actually enjoy these conversations because I get a chance to describe, in detail, the features within our software that enable the protection of data in all states – at rest, in transit and in use.

At a time when businesses are challenged to manage their document workflows smarter and more cost effectively, the mail center may be slow in addressing such objectives as increasing productivity and adding value. One solution is for enterprises to transform their mail center operations into more automated, digital information hubs that digitize and electronically distribute the mail to employees while ensuring security.

Process Intelligence is Key to Value in IoT systems

Nintex wkfBy Alain Gentilhomme, Nintex

Few topics in technology have captured more mindshare in the past few years than the Internet of Things (IoT).

In Part 2 of this series we discuss the importance of evolving your organization for business growth and employee recruitment/retainment.

We live and work in turbulent but exciting times! Ever-evolving technological capabilities, new business models and digital transformation of companies are all driving market disruption like never before. Companies are changing their business models and strategy to incorporate all these new developments and become more agile. The nature of work is changing and demand for digital expertise is soaring, while other skills are becoming relatively unimportant. And, as leaders go about changing the fundamental fabric and processes of their companies, there’s a dawning realization that successfully transforming into a digital business is not just dependent on having the right technology.

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.
