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. Business analysts are prime targets for no code providers, giving them the ability to engage in discovery and design, but then develop the solution the business needs without handing off to a frequently stretched IT team operating with very tight budgets and multiple competing demands being placed upon them.

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 »

Differentiating Between Low Code BPM Platforms

Low Code BPM has promised to deliver business apps faster and make the process of Digital Transformation faster, easier, and smoother. The problem Low Code BPM platforms have is that they are still largely targeted at the professional developer, and making their life faster, easier, and smoother.

Tagged onto this is the price tag, not just of the initial cost of ownership, but the ensuing support burden typically laid upon IT’s shoulders. Instead of empowering workers to respond and react to the business environment, to test ideas for... Read More »

The Human Touch, Process Optimization, and Platformization

Process-versus-Platform and when should innovation supersede process optimization Michael Schrage is a fellow at the MIT Sloan School for Digital Business, and I read his article over the Holidays, tantalizingly entitled, “Instead of Optimizing Processes, Reimagine Them as Platforms”. I bit and read it, interested to see where this would go, especially after having adopted the concept of viewing a business through a process lens. The main meat of the article centered around a UX tweak for a client, which proposed the provision of inventory data to the prospective customer upfront. The idea was that by showing inventory as in... Read More »
