My upcoming webinar on Financial Services and the need for flexible processes to weather a crisis
Blog: Column 2 - Sandy Kemsley
It’s a busy time for webinars, and I’ll be doing two more in the next two months sponsored by Signavio. On April 15, I’ll be talking about financial services, and how flexible processes are even more important now because of the current pandemic situation:
The current pandemic crisis and resultant market downturn has customers scrambling for safe investments, and financial services companies being forced to support remote working, all while legacy platforms creak precariously under the strain. Now, more than ever, it is critical for companies to understand their end-to-end processes and apply intelligent automation just to survive. Market leaders with flexible processes will be able to adjust quickly to the rapidly-changing environment, and even offer new business models and products suited to the uncertain times ahead.
I just had someone in financial services reach out to me and say “new automation strategy initiatives are the furthest thing from my leadership’s mind right now”, but I agree with other analysts that this is the perfect time to be pushing innovation in your organization. Regardless of your industry, you’re in the middle of a massive disruption; you can either respond to that disruption and innovate to stay ahead of your competition, or you’re going to be one of the many economic casualties in the months ahead.
