Then, taking it one step further, the white paper asks how do you measure what you’re doing? Measurement is management, it’s been said, making analytics a key part of digital transformation.

Blog overview: This well-researched guest post looks at some of the workplace challenges facing government IT. Not only are government IT departments struggling to find talent for new ways of working, they are at risk of being understaffed for the older systems that are still needed. Agencies may find they’ve digitized content for systems that no one knows how to run. The answers to government IT staffing may lie in workflow automation and service outsourcing. For many departments and agencies, outsourced document management services and solutions relieve the staffing pressures, while also giving IT the foundation for the digital journey. A document outsourcing partner can also help accelerate your digital transformation by guiding you step by step on the journey to digital workflow and innovation. IT staff shouldn’t be stuck with pushing paper or maintaining printers and ordering toner. Instead, teams can focus on serving citizens and fellow workers. More time can be spent on continuing innovation and digitization as a strategy. When process automation drives your digital journey, you can eliminate lower-level, paper-based manual tasks that keep IT and other employees from spending time on higher-value initiatives.
Blog overview: Enterprise leaders recognize the importance of adopting digital ways of working. A survey from McKinsey and Company found that top performing companies take advantage of digital innovation.

One thing that should be included in digital strategies is how to deal with paper documents and communications. Start by looking at the reasons paper remains critical. Additionally, by combining digital document solutions with usage analytics, organizations can tap into data to help decide where to invest further in workflow optimization, digitization and automation. Armed with this knowledge, your enterprise is ready to move forward towards work-changing digital transformation. And that’s change that matters.
