Think Automation First: Transforming Government with RPA
Between budget constraints, constituent demands, an aging workforce, cyber security threats, and the struggle to support legacy systems, government workers are under pressure to do more with less. To address these challenges, governments are evaluating process and service delivery through new operating models, technology, and process optimization.
Not everyone has the same philosophy when it comes to digital transformation and ERP migrations. Some organizations prefer to stick to what they know while others prioritize staying ahead of the technology curve, taking advantage of new features as soon as they’re available.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has created an urgent push for digital transformation. For many health systems, this strategy starts at the heart of the organization, the ERP.
Education is changing radically. The COVID-19 pandemic caused a significant shift in the way students, faculty, and staff interacted, and exacerbated trends that were already gaining momentum. With the transition to remote work and distance learning, and rising expectations for streamlined processes, institutions have had to find new ways to engage students, and reach them where they are, in the moments that matter most.
Midway through 2021, and it is shaping up to be a large year for transformation in the healthcare industry.

For organizations that haven’t made the leap to the cloud, digital transformation is likely at the top of the business to-do list. More than two-thirds of CEOs from the world’s largest companies say they plan to undertake a major transformation initiative over the next 12 months. However, deploying a new ERP system can be a challenge without the right partners, inside and outside of the business.
Private and public higher education institutions have faced rapid, continuous change over the last 18 months. Many academic institutions put project plans on hold and are now facing increased urgency to move to the cloud. Institutions seeking to execute on digital transformation plans need to assess their data, business processes, appetite for change, and strategic goals to determine proper timing, activities, and communication for transformation projects, the largest of which is not the actual technology, but the change to how work gets done.
