Transforming the Digital Landscape with Low Code BPM

A major business issue is that operations now need to change at a pace where traditional coding methods simply cannot keep up. By the time IT has a solution to the business problem, it is out of date and obsolete which does little to create genuine benefit, while driving everyone’s frustration levels ever higher. Low code or Lean BPM platforms are emerging as an effective and fast way to build new business applications, and once deployed, to ensure they are maintained and supported across the organization. That’s the theory, and almost every CIO I talk to is skeptical when you... Read More »

JobTraQ versus PegaSystems – Lean BPM Goes Head-to-Head with Traditional BPM

We had the very recent opportunity to pitch JobTraQ against PegaSystems this week, and it was illuminating to see the differences close up between the two solutions. JobTraQ is the pioneer of Lean or Low Code, whereas PegaSystems is one of the big players in the traditional BPM space. Obviously, we want to see JobTraQ deployed for this customer, and frankly I think it is the better solution in this instance, nevertheless Pega is still a very good BPM solution and not to be taken lightly. Here are some of the differences between the two solutions we found upon close... Read More »

Banking BPM and Why a Point Solution is Not Recommended

Bank and financial institutions operating in the retail world are in an exceptionally tough environment. Regulations and compliance are daunting, loaded with extensive complexity plus they are ever changing. Customer attrition rates are exceptionally high with the commoditization of products and services, plus the financial crash seriously dented confidence in the sector as a whole. The general response from the banking industry has been to invest heavily in new technologies, focused on winning and retaining customers and keeping them coming back for more. There have been two approaches to deliver value: to develop in-house point solutions, and then seek to... Read More »

Are You Integrating Technology or Business Operations?

I came across a post by Randy Heffner, an analyst at Forrester. Though the post is dated back to 2013, it resonates with me today. Randy’s post is simply titled, “Are You Doing Techie Integration or Business Integration?” After handling a couple of new customer deployments this month, I felt it was a good question to ask. A major differentiator for JobTraQ is the freedom from the IT department: with the JobTraQ On Premises edition, IT only has to provision a server and you’re in business (unless you’re performing some heavy duty integration or customization work). JobTraQ cloud edition customers... Read More »

Can A Project Workflow System Be Deployed Without Pain?

Project workflow systems allow businesses to streamline and optimize business processes, and they form a key component of Business Process Management (BPM) solutions. They are especially powerful when combined with effective, collaborative task management functionality and real-time visibility on workflows. Traditional project workflow solutions, particularly when they are part of a larger BPM solution, are notoriously expensive and frequently take a huge IT effort to deploy. Even with a relatively smooth deployment, there are frequently issues and a sense of failure to meet organizational expectations. Closer to the norm is a huge cost, frequently more than anticipated, deployment headaches, a... Read More »

Automate Business Workflows Without the IT Department

When you are looking at workflow solutions, a major issue is the deployment and the need to bring in a frequently stretched IT department to handle the work. Many IT departments are heavily engaged in taking care of existing infrastructure, typically with 80% of their time, resources and budgetary allocation tied up in this, leaving a small slice of time, budget and resources available for projects. Your workflow project may be a great idea, but it has to compete with the other projects IT is being asked to implement and they have constrained capability. But what if you didn’t need...

Why Your Organization Should Use Just One BPM Tool

Today’s post is going to cover the ‘Big Three’ reasons why you should deploy one BPM or PM tool across your organization. There are plenty of tools on the market, and frequently I come across companies where the problem they are experiencing is not how to manage business processes and projects, but how to manage disparate data stored across multiple tools across the business. If we have one BPM/PM tool deployed across the entire organization, then we have one, and only one repository for all of the data. Think outside the box a little and consider who else aside from...
