How to Perform a Business Process Automation Assessment for Your Company

Business process automation or BPA represents an increasingly popular form of Digital Transformation, with many companies using automation to improve efficiency, productivity and even employee morale.

That’s right! A company’s collective employee morale and productivity may reflect a marked improvement with a business process automation project. This occurs because you are removing humans from the equation and freeing them to focus on other higher-level tasks. Rote, repetitive tasks tend to be very damaging to morale, which in turn, has an adverse impact on productivity levels, overall performance and ultimately, employee retention.

Productivity and efficiency also jumps when your Digital Transformation project involves business process automation since a computer can be far faster and more efficient than a human.

But where do you begin with a business process automation assessment to determine if a specific process is right for BPA?
But what are the four types of digital transformation? The answer will vary, but all can offer good insight that will help guide your next high-tech project.

The Importance of Good Software Development Project Management

Software and mobile app development is never a one-and-done type of project. Think of your mobile app or software as a dynamic, ever-changing digital entity that grows, evolves and improves over time.

But how do you know which mobile app features should be improved or which areas of a desktop software platform need an expansion? You can guess about what your users are doing or you can know what your users are doing with insights derived from product analytics. Often overlooked, software and mobile app analytics tools generate the user data that’s essential in the recipe for success.

What Are the Four Types of Digital Transformation?

In the business world, the answer to a question really depends upon whom you ask and this is especially true in the realm of digital transformation. Most would agree that digital transformation is a rather nebulous concept that serves as a catch-all for projects that leverage technology in an innovative way that propels a company forward.

But what are the four types of digital transformation? The answer will vary, but all can offer good insight that will help guide your next high-tech project.

The Importance of a Good Data Migration Strategy for Your Software Development Project

Frequently, data is amongst a company’s most valuable assets — a fact that can make a data migration project more than a little stressful. There are a number of circumstances that may necessitate data migration, including a software development project. Data needs to be moved from your old system to your new system. Sounds easy, right? At first glance, the process may appear to be simple and straightforward. But once you look a bit closer, you’ll realize that the potential for data corruption and data loss is significant. But with a solid data migration strategy, you will be well-positioned to transfer the data without incident.

Why is Software Maintenance Important for a Custom Enterprise Platform?

It is not uncommon for a business to spend six figures and many months developing custom enterprise software. For most, the investment will bring a healthy return on investment — assuming the custom software platform is architected in a way that efficiently supports the company and its operations. But there is one thing that often stands in the way of a significant ROI: lack of proper software updates and maintenance.

Unfortunately, many assume that software development is a one-and-done sort of project. That simply isn’t the case. You must think of your software as dynamic and evolving and as such, it requires periodic updates.

How Do Enterprise Software Integrations Work? – API Integration for ERP

Deploying a new enterprise software solution is no small feat. From the time you compile a requirements document for your new software platform to deployment day, it is not uncommon to spend months working on various aspects of development and user training.

Many will place their focus on software features and functionalities or various aspects of the implementation and deployment processes. But integration is one of the most important — and potentially, rather challenging — aspects of the software development process.

3 Enterprise Mobile App Trends for 2022

Think back to a time when employers frowned upon mobile phone usage while at work. Staff were left to sneakily glance at their screens, ringer silenced to avoid discovery. “You can’t use your phone at work,” they said. “Put away the phone,” they said.

Today, things are very different. Enterprise mobile apps are trending towards the cloud, the internet of things (IoT), the worldwide 5G network and more.

Could We Soon See the End of Passwords? – The FIDO Alliance Develops Alternative Authentication Protocol

Passwords are a regular area of frustration for many folks. Just keeping track of your passwords is a challenge for many individuals. Many turn to keychain apps in an effort to simplify life, but even with a keychain, password resets are a common occurrence. Then you’re tasked with coming up with a new password that you’ve not used previously — something you will never remember — which leads to a repeating cycle of password resets down the road.

Google Play App Store Impacted by Russian Sanctions

Do You Need a Data Protection Strategy? – Data Management Tips

A company’s data can be one of its most valuable assets, but a shocking number of businesses lack a defined data management plan. Even fewer have a well-articulated data protection strategy, designed to guard against dangers such as data theft, data corruption and data breaches. But do you really need a data protection plan? And, if so, what does that approach look like?

Why Your Enterprise Data Management Strategy Should Include Messaging Apps

Enterprise data management strategies are highly complex, requiring intensive consideration of how a company’s data is processed, stored, protected and audited. But despite the challenges, data management is an area where an increasing number of companies are investing time and resources — and for good reason: your data is among your most valuable assets. An organization’s data is also among its greatest vulnerabilities.

A company’s messaging apps and associated messaging data should be a key consideration as an organization develops or refines its enterprise data management strategy. This messaging data is critical not only from a security standpoint, but also from a perspective of compliance for companies that are subject to regulatory oversight.

Messaging Mobile App Market Projected to Grow by 3.9% in 2022

Worldwide, the messaging app market is expected to see a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.9%, driven by factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent rise in popularity of remote work. What’s more, it’s predicted that we will see the messaging app market sector grow from $313,600 million in 2021 to $409,900 million in 2028.

How Can a SuperUser Improve the Enterprise Software Rollout Process?

Enterprise software development is a complex and time-consuming process. But many fail to realize that the actual rollout and deployment of an enterprise software platform can be equally challenging. This is especially true for large enterprise resource planning (ERP) software systems that impact staff in multiple departments and divisions.

During the software deployment process, you want to avoid a situation where your staff feels as though they’ve had the digital rug pulled out from under them. Transitioning can be challenging since you’re typically migrating data and processes from one platform to another — and those two systems may bear little resemblance to each other in terms of the user interface. Plus, humans are naturally resistant to change, adding an element of reluctance that further complicates matters.

Why is Jira the Best Custom Software Project Management Platform for Your Project?

With project management software options abound, choosing the right platform for your next endeavor can be a challenge.

The good news is that there is one piece of project management software that is well-suited to a diverse range of agile projects in an even wider breadth of industries. Meet Jira, a project management platform that’s regarded as one of the best custom software project management platforms available.

Google Halts Cross-App Tracking on Android Devices and What it Means for Users

Google recently announced its plans to discontinue the practice of tracking users on Android smartphones and tablets. The move comes as increasingly savvy users move away from platforms and apps that collect their data — sometimes covertly.

Google’s latest move comes on the heels of a similar initiative that was introduced by Apple in 2021. These new privacy restrictions are specifically related to user data that is collected for the purpose of more targeted advertising. Privacy concerns abound, this data is often collected in a discreet, covert manner without the user’s knowledge and consent.

Does Your Business Need an IT Crisis Response Team?

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has dramatically increased the threat of cyberwar, prompting many organizations to reconsider their protocols, technology and the security measures that are in place to protect digital assets and networks (among other things.)
A robust, well-designed security strategy is a good start, but when a problem arises, an IT crisis response team will play a critical role. So if you are wondering, “Does my business really need an IT crisis response team?” the answer is “yes, absolutely.”

The 7 Top Mistakes Tech Startups Make and How to Avoid Them

Startups face lots of challenges, to be certain, and it’s estimated that as many as 7 in 10 startups ultimately fail over the span of a decade. According to Investopedia, a little over 21% of startups fail in the first year, followed by 30% in year two.

CISA Offers Russian Cyber Crime Prevention Tips to CEOs and Corporate Leaders

The Russian battlefield has already extended beyond Ukraine and into the cyber realm. Now, with an increasing number of nations getting involved in the conflict, analysts and government agencies alike are warning about the increased potential for cyberattacks.

The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has issued a “Shields Up” alert with advice for guarding against Russian cyber crimes. But in addition to this, the division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) provided tips for corporate leaders and CEOs who are especially concerned about Russian cybercrime.

CISA Issues Cybercrime Prevention Tips to Guard Against Russian Cybercriminals

Russia’s invasion into Ukraine has had far-reaching impacts that have extended far beyond eastern Europe. Military analysts have widely speculated that the war on the ground hasn’t gone according to plan for Russian forces — a fact that has led many to surmise that the battlefield may soon extend into the cyber realm.

This has prompted the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) — a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) — to issue a “Shields Up” warning with actionable tips to defend against cybercrime. The tips include recommendations for attack detection, mitigating damage in the event an cyberattack does occur, and maximizing your organization’s cybercrime defense capabilities.

Stop Chasing Perfection: Avoiding Feature Bloat and How it Prevents Mobile App Success

One of my favorite quotes is from Leonardo Da Vinci who famously said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” This remark alludes to the idea that being simple isn’t mundane or lazy; it’s elegant and efficient.

I begin nearly every discovery session discussing this concept with new clients, highlighting the fact that, together, we must deliver clean, high-value features that quickly convey benefits to the user. It’s impractical to chase down every fringe use case. Maintaining a precise, narrow focus is what brings good results and strong ROI.

Slack Outage Underscores Importance of Reliability in Enterprise Messaging Tools

The day got off to a rocky start and continued down that rocky path for many companies using Slack, which reported a “partial outage” beginning around 9:30 a.m EST on Tuesday, February 22, 2022. Primarily affected was Slack’s messaging and chat feature, which was not loading for a portion of users. Although notably, the feature has remained fully operational for some so it’s fair to surmise that this inconsistency in the outage contributed a fair amount of confusion to the equation.

Ephemeral Messaging and its Uses for Business in an Enterprise Messenger App

The term “ephemeral messaging” often brings to mind visions of adulterers and suspicious characters sending text messages and photos that they don’t want the world to see. In fact, that’s how Snapchat originated, although the social media platform has successfully shed its shady roots as it emerged into the mainstream.

The reality is that ephemeral messaging has some very useful and legitimate business applications, making this functionality a good choice for inclusion in an enterprise messaging app. Organizations in a broad array of business sectors can benefit from an ephemeral messaging feature in their messenger app, whether it’s a component of a desktop platform or a companion mobile application.
