The kind that helps a company change its shape and morph into an agile, responsive, competitive, innovative, and customer-engaging enterprise.
For companies undertaking the metamorphosis to a digital enterprise, the future looks bright. You have more choices and tools to help you get there than ever before.
Forrester has done considerable research in the area of digital transformation and has concluded that their customer’s attitudes have changed surprisingly fast. In 2014, IT spending and decision makers were focused on projects that reduced cost. In 2016, those same decision makers have a different, forward looking view where the focus is on process improvements to help their company’s digital transformation. It just took a while for companies to realize that they can either be the market disruptors or be disrupted by other competitors that develop technologies to attract, engage, and retain customers better than they can.
To realize your digital transformation you need a new type of platform and tools. Forrester calls this Digital Process Automation (DPA) in their report, “The Forrester Wave™: Digital Process Automation, Q3 2017.” DPA goes beyond BPM to encompass different application patterns, approaches and users. And to take advantage of DPA, companies need “process driven applications to address the deep, complex needs they have traditionally targeted, while at the same time providing a platform for large numbers of rapid, business-driven applications,” noted Rob Koplowitz, Forrester analyst, in the report.
This is difficult for a business to do on its own. Implementing deep process requires expertise in business rules, process modeling, and dynamic case management. Implementing wide processes allows a business to innovate and capture opportunities by leveraging newer game-changing technologies such as low-code/no-code applications, Internet of Things (IoT), customer journey mapping, and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
To help companies get their arms around all this technology, Forrester recently completed its Digital Process Automation report that evaluated vendors in this field on 31 dimensions. These include how well their offering supports DPA requirements, the strength of their go-to-market strategy and thought leadership, proven customer adoption across geographies and vertical markets, the relevancy of their offering to the types of inquires that Forrester receives.
