What Have People Read in the 1st Quarter 2021?
Blog: Jim Sinur
Before I answer the question in the title, I’d like to thank my readers for keeping my blog going. It’s going on eight years now and the blog seems to be flourishing with over 720K hits during that time. I wanted to share what folks have been reading during the last year plus what’s hot in 2021. There has been a shift away from RPA and a movement to business improvement through process improvement. At the same time, there is a revolution in the use of data in the cloud and the data mesh that spans the cloud inclusive of on-prem data. Collaboration that is focused on outcomes is also an emergent theme. Expect to see more holistic management driven by increased business visibility.
