Rapid and Robust App Development – You don’t have to Choose!

Successful, intuitive process applications that actually affect change are the objective.

But, so is getting them done in less time, with less money. Traditional BPM software with custom coding yields powerful results, and are often time-consuming and expensive to implement and maintain. Low code tools are touted as an answer to these problems, but can limit application scope, scale and security.

In this infographic, you’ll learn how K2 brings together the best of both BPM and low code to provide a platform that empowers IT to build process automation solutions

Webinar 17: Digital Transformation with HP Records Manager (TRIM) and Office 365

 

Are you finding it difficult to manage digital record keeping whilst trying to support users to adopt the practices?

Applying retention policies to content in SharePoint Online remains a massive headache for records managers.

Imagine the benefits of being able to expose a digital form inside the easy to use SharePoint Online [Office 365], whereby having the ability to capture data and attach documents in real time, save the data directly to HP Records Manager in order to comply with all record keeping practices?

Too good to be true? Think again.

In this scenario we will demonstrate a K2 form embedded into SharePoint, attaching documents directly from HPRM (TRIM), generating PDF documents, creating records in HPRM.

Episode 16: From Cloud Productivity to Enterprise Business Apps

 

During this presentation, Igor will be showcasing the K2 workflow process showing the list of technology use in an account on boarding scenario.

During the video, Igor will be demonstrating a technology fuelled new staff on-boarding process using the following technologies:

• Microsoft Yammer
• Microsoft Planner
• Microsoft SharePoint
• Microsoft Dynamics 365
• Microsoft Flow
• DocuSign

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – Opportunity or Threat?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been finalised by the European Union and will come into effect from May 2018. It replaces all data protection legislation in European Union (EU) member states such as the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) in the UK.

The GDPR includes new and improved privacy rights for individuals within the EU, such as “the right to be forgotten”. The new obligations relate to the collection, use and transfer of consumers’ personal data. The official interpretation of Personal Data is “any information relating to an individual, whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life. It can be anything from a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, and posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer’s IP address.”

But why now – it doesn’t come into force until the middle of 2018?

You may think that with over 12 months still to go, it’s plenty of time to put something in place, but this is not a small issue that can be overlooked. The new regulation introduces severe penalties for breaches of the GDPR with legislators able to impose fines of up to €20 million or 4% of an organisation’s global annual turnover in order to ensure compliance. That’s a lot of money.

Don’t we already have something similar in each countries own Data Protection Acts?

The GDPR will require organisations to have a legitimate reason for processing personal data. Consent can be given by a written, electronic or oral statement. This could include the data subject ticking a box when visiting a website or choosing technical settings for social network accounts. Importantly, pre-ticked boxes or inactivity will no longer equal consent. The remit of the GDPR goes a lot further than existing Data Protection legislation in other countries.

In an interesting development, individuals will now be able to request that their personal data is erased by the organisation and no longer processed. This is called the ‘right to be forgotten’).

If I am in the UK then Brexit will save me, won’t it?

Although the UK is in the process of leaving the EU, the triggering of article 50 will take 2 years to complete. So the UK will still be a member of the EU in May 2018 and all UK organisations will almost certainly have to implement these regulations. As this is also a ‘common-sense’ piece of EU legislation, there is no reason to suspect it will be repealed as and when Brexit does come into force. It really isn’t worth taking the chance.

So how do I find out more? What should I do next?

Fortunately, there is plenty of professional help and guidance available and some forward-thinking organisations, such as Deloitte, with the GDPR Consent Management Framework based on K2, have developed easy to implement solutions that can take away the headache based on sound legislative principles.

Deloitte and K2 will be running a series of events, webinars and seminars, on the topic of GDPR and how to solve the challenge and we look forward to sharing the skills and knowledge we have gained already. The threat of fines is all too real, however the chance to protect citizen’s personal data once and for all presents us with an opportunity too good to miss.

If you would like to learn how K2 and Deloitte can help your security, regulatory and privacy teams grasp the action plan necessary for GDPR compliance join our “The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Deadline is Coming – Get an Action Plan!” webinar with Bart Eynatten, Senior Manager in Analytics and Information Management at Deloitte on June 7th.

How to go low code without sacrificing the power of BPM

Bridge the Gap Between Ease of Use and Complexity

Increasingly, organisations are using low-code and no-code application development solutions to lower labor costs, accelerate app delivery, increase ROI from existing IT investments and align more closely with business goals like better customer experience.

Yet, low code can bring with it a reputation for creating the kinds of compromises in security, control and integration that developers find difficult to swallow. K2 approaches process automation differently than most vendors – K2 brings together the power of traditional business process management (BPM) software with the speed and innovation of low-code tools into one platform.

This white paper outlines:

– The inefficiency of choosing a low-code vendor based on immediate project goals

– K2’s low-code and BPM capabilities in nine key areas of business process automation success

– How customers are using K2 to address critical concerns.

Download the white paper to learn why IT needs are crucial to evaluating low-code platforms and how to pick a vendor that has the flexibility developers need.

Choose your Process Automation pain point and we’ll tell you how to solve it

Can K2 address any of your highest-level concerns and challenges?

K2 believes improving processes is about more than workflows and business rules engines – it’s about solving real-life issues.

Your enterprise has a unique set of business process application needs and objectives. Picking a platform that can be tailored to support these needs is the key to a successful digital transformation initiative.

By focusing on your ultimate objectives instead of a checklist of features, you’ll be able to pick a process automation vendor that is actually capable of delivering on its promises.

Episode 15: Is sharing and collaborating on documents with external parties a bottle neck in your organisation?

 

 

 

Does the following sound familiar?

You email out a PDF document. The client prints it, scans it and emails it back;

You need more information, so you do it again;

Nobody has visibility of the process internally, documents are everywhere; all this costs time and money!

During this video, we will be demonstrating how easy it is to improve customer service with document sharing.

Manage and collate feedback on documents which can then be archived in a SharePoint Library and/or your Records Management platform;

Report on customer interaction with tasks, reminders and notifications via email and text messages;

View and sign contracts, exchanging NDA agreements, letters of engagement or collaborating on documents in a consortium scenario; and

Collaborate within your SharePoint environment with external users whilst maintaining your SharePoint security.
