Shifting Workflow Functionality from IT Teams to Business Analysts

Empowering Business Analysts to Directly and Rapidly Deploy Workflow Solutions No code workflow platforms are favored by the business side of an organization because they provide the power to create and modify workflows and business applications without the need for IT to get involved.

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,...

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.
