An annual global survey of over 2000 chief information officers has shown an upward shift in the importance placed on collaboration and workflow technology among enterprises.
The survey of 2,300 CIO’s, conducted by leading industry analysts Gartner, suggests workflow automation and collaboration technologies have moved up in the CIO technology priority list.
With growth and operational efficiency ranking highest among business priorities, the survey reveals a trend towards focussing on the customer as the means to reconcile these opposing goals. This favours technology which helps strengthen the customer experience and reduces the cost of internal processes.
Workflow automation is one technology which can deliver in both these areas, enabling improved responsiveness to customers, while streamlining business processes with less manual intervention and more touch less processing.
