Businesses are shifting from legacy approaches to new ways of working. Digital transformation helps businesses reach full operational efficiency through a change in management style and innovative changes to business models. These operational efficiencies can be reached through Business Process Management (BPM) which is no longer just an operational add-on, but a vital component of digital transformation.
BPM supports digital transformation in the following ways:
- Moves towards agility
A new generation of BPM software, through speed and agility, is driving digital transformation. Business processes that were previously reliant on IT projects now deliver automation-fuelled agility.
- Uncovers and enables innovation
Through automation, businesses can develop applications with little manual coding and traditional business process management principles. This rapid development cycle helps businesses uncover possible innovation opportunities. This innovation enables digital transformation.
- Addresses ever-changing processes
Businesses are constantly adapting to meet consumers’ evolving needs. In the digital era, consumers want access to information immediately. BPM provides the platform to consistently review and modify processes to keep up with demands.
- Reduces operational complexities
Digital transformation promotes a shared collaboration model. BPM automation makes collaboration effortless; many team members can work together on a single project.
- Provides visibility
Data insights collated through business process management tools help businesses streamline future processes. Managers can identify trends and opportunities through smart reports.
Today’s consumers are digitally empowered and have access to a range of online resources for information, products and services. Businesses need to be flexible to manage such requirements. This new generation of business process management tools and platforms make this possible. BPM goes hand-in-hand with a digital shift and is no longer seen as a once-off project.
