Accelerate at the Intersection of Business and Technology
Forrester Research have identified a “mega trend” which they call Empowered Business Technology. This forum explored the multi-facets of EBT and how IT organisations are developing new approaches to support the business operations team in deploying and using business user oriented technology whilst IT provide governance, support and availability of service. http://www.forrester.com/events/eventdetail/0,9179,2510,00.html
Blue Prism attended the event to explore how our Operational Agility Software platform aligns with the goals and benefits of Empowered Business Technology and showcase our capabilities for “Self Serve” business process automation. What we discovered at the event was the extent to which Empowered Business Technology is becoming the norm and not the exception of how business operations want to select and consume technology and services. It most businesses today the business functions are driving the requirements for technology, as they are most closely aligned to the market dynamics to which they are attempting to respond, and IT functions are changing to support this by focusing less on development and complex IT projects and more on providing the supporting infrastucture needed to ensure business technology initiatives are implemented within strong governance, security and data management controls. A new balance is being struck between operational flexibility and IT governance and control.
