mobility

Mobile applications (Applications on smart devices) have revolutionised the way our world works and has influenced the needs and desires of Employees in large and small business.

Business users need/want software applications – “Apps” to help them manage and enhance their work experience. Today’s employees grew up on the internet. They are highly collaborative and use technology intuitively and fluidly. They expect technology to be powerful, but also easy to use and device and platform agnostic. They want to rapidly design and deploy solutions to solve business problems on the fly. They are not willing to wait weeks or months for an IT department to solve their problems. They want it now and won’t settle for anything else.’

“The last thing we want is to be a big dumb company that feels we can put a swoosh on something and people will buy that. Things are accelerating, but it’s not as if we’re in a speed-up, slow-down world.  It’s a high-velocity world, we’re digitally connected, everything is changing. Business requires software that can move at the velocity of business.” Mark Parker CEO, Nike

Industry Watch: SharePoint 2013 – Clouding the issues

Sharepoint-survey-challenges-adoption-issues
 SharePoint 2013 is the fourth major incarnation of SharePoint in the last 10 years, and some organisations find themselves supporting live versions of all four. Although not really its original purpose, SharePoint has had a major impact on the overall reach of document management and ECM compared to the deployment of earlier systems.

“Despite improvements in the standard feature set, 67% still see third-party products as important. There is still strong interest in third-party add-in products, particularly system monitoring, BPM, storage management, metadata management, and records management.”

In this report, we look at the adoption rates and roll-out status for SharePoint as an ECM/DM system, the ongoing issues of user adoption, and overall project success – or otherwise. We study the impact of the new 2013 features, particularly on third party add-on products that have previously been used to fill in gaps in security, governance, search and social capability.

We look at the take up of the 365 product family, and the issues that cloud presents for SharePoint users.

Some of the key findings:

  • 57% of responding organisations use SharePoint for ECM / DM, 31% consider it to be their main or only (10%) ECM / DM system
  • 28% only use SharePoint for collaboration sites and / or intranet
  • 45% plan to be on SharePoint 2013 by mid 2014. Improved search and navigation is deemed the most useful new feature

Allevating InfoPath Anxiety with K2 smartforms

whitepaper_banner_1

On January 31, 2014, Microsoft announced that it would no longer be investing in InfoPath, although it will continue to support the latest release, InfoPath 2013, until 2023.

The announcement does not come as a surprise to those within the Microsoft SharePoint community. The future of InfoPath has been uncertain for some time, causing anxiety for those invested in the product, as well as those in need of a comprehensive enterprise forms solution for SharePoint. InfoPath has been the Microsoft forms technology of choice for SharePoint since its first release with Microsoft Office 2003, but with only negligible investment in the 2013 release, many started to question its future.

This white paper talks about the implications of this announcement, what organisations need to consider when looking for an enterprise forms platform and how K2 can meet these needs.

Forrester 2015 Predictions report, free from K2

Forrester

According to Forrester, the top priorities for BPM initiatives in 2014 focused on two things: extending mission-critical business processes to support the mobile workforce and redesigning business processes to deliver exceptional customer experiences. Forrester also noticed a growing appetite among companies to move business-critical processes into the cloud using BPM platform-as-a-service solutions.

In 2015, BPM will fight to expand its relevance in the front office and needs to shed serious weight to better align with the age of customer imperatives that prioritise speed-to-market over analysis and complexity – traditional hallmarks of the BPM discipline and software solutions. K2 is always focused on customer needs, both B2B and B2C, and are pleased to be featured in this Forrester report.

In the 2015 Predictions Report, “The age of the customer is set to disrupt the BPM market,” Forrester’s Clay Richardson and Craig Le Clair talk about how customer obsession – the relentless focus on winning, retaining and serving customers – will disrupt and reshape the entire ecosystem for BPM.

The focus on all things customer is causing companies to look for agile, flexible technologies to improve processes that “directly or indirectly touch customers or shape customer experience.” The new vehicles for delivery are “‘low-code’ platforms, new engagement architectures and cloud-based work orchestration.”

K2 is offering this paper, valued at $499, completely free for you. Download the report to learn why all “enterprise architects and business process leaders should add this emerging category [low-code vendors] to their shortlists of hot new technologies to watch,” and why K2 is the choice for your organisation.
