“Business process automation, or BPA, is the strategy a business uses to automate processes to contain costs. It consists of integrating applications, restructuring labor resources, and using software applications throughout the organization”. Now Take a moment to think about all the things you do every day in your work and you would realize that your organizational responsibilities and accountabilities can be narrowed down to a recurring “huge” list of Tasks that you perform daily. You will also come to realize that to complete such tasks you are required to interact extensively with your peers and direct managers and may also cross-collaborate with departments or groups outside of your own. Such interactions happen via email, phone, in-person chat, online instant messaging, etc. Such frequent communication exchanges help you to get things done and/or make decisions that keep your businesses running. However, in many cases, coordinating business processes is complicated, and employees do not collaborate in the most efficient way. Also, some business processes are quite complex in the sense that they require interaction between multiple actors and systems.
While all of this out-of-band interaction takes place with the intent of completing your daily tasks, you may fail to update the appropriate Line of Business “back-end” systems that exist to help store information related to a business process. Sometimes we do not update such Line of Business systems because of all the overhead and increased work that they bring or just simply “it’s too complex to use and very time consuming to update one field”. Back-end systems represent a huge investment for companies, and sadly, they may be seen as overhead since they do not map to the real way that people work. In many cases, back-end systems require end-users to log on to other systems to copy and paste data. The consequence: frustrated employees and slow business productivity.
