Solely looking at digital transformation spending by organisations around the world should make it clear that it’s here to stay. A forecast by IDC states that worldwide spending on digital transformation technology and services may reach $1.97 trillion by 2022. The manufacturing industry is expected to invest the most, followed by transportation and retail. An organization’s transition can feel overwhelming as today’s customers expect a lot. So where can technology leaders go to stay knowledgeable and up to speed?
In the 21st century consumers have access to vast amounts of data. They are more powerful than ever because they have options. No longer are they tied to one provider of a specific product or service. If they don't like a certain organization they are a click away from finding an alternative. As such providing a great customer experience is crucial for any organization to attract new customers and retain existing ones. Below is a list of four categories any organization should invest in to improve their customer's experience:
Growing an organization these days is very different from the 20th century. Business is much easier in some areas, but far more complex and extremely challenging.

There are many choices available when it comes to planning a project. To-do style apps are fantastic for organizing private tasks. But a dedicated project management software is needed to organize the workload of an entire team.
Project management dates back to the early 1950s in its contemporary form, although its roots date back to the latter years of the 19th century. A defined method of project management emerged as companies realized the advantages of organizing job around projects-recognizing the critical need to communicate and coordinate work across departments and professions.
In the past IT Departments acted as support units for the business facilitating their day to day work and making it easier. But in this connected world we live in, the role of the IT Department has evolved to be directly interlinked with the business side and is directly responsible for its success or failure. The goal of IT Departments these days is to plan, procure, acquire, implement, manage and support the latest technological solutions and practices at the most economical prices to spearhead their organization’s digital transformation journey.
What is Business Process Automation? Business Process automation refers to the act of using technology to automate repeatable daily tasks.
