IT teams are more strapped than ever due to increased requests and ever-advancing organizational growth. Faced with fewer resources and a 40% increase in projects, IT teams are now spending most of their time playing catch up and not on development or innovation. This is leading to frustrated internal stakeholders whose requests are held up by IT, resulting in delayed business initiatives.

Harnessing digital solutions is more critical than ever. The best approach is for organizations to accelerate their position in the digital economy — paving the road to full-scale digital transformation. To future-proof their digital architecture, organizations need to define and execute automation strategies that empower more employees to build digital solutions. This allows IT teams to focus on enabling central control and governance to achieve growth efficiently, rather than develop costly in-house solutions.

A unified automation strategy empowers everyone in the organization to focus on new and exciting business concepts. These concepts can lead to new revenue streams, exceptional products, and customer experiences.

  • How automation eases the burden on IT teams
  • What automation is, and how it can help meet business goals
  • The importance of a unified automation strategy

Increasing Expectations

One of the most pressing issues businesses face is the expectation that IT teams will deliver more with less. And unfortunately, several reasons make it difficult to close the IT delivery gap. On the one hand, IT must enable business teams while balancing:

Accelerating expectations. Organizations often lack enough workers with specific technical skills to keep up with the innovation challenges ahead of them.
Reduced budgets. Nearly every organization is asked to do more with less budget.
Operating complexity. These complexities arise from the technology and processes available. Technical debt makes it challenging for your organization to adapt. And IT teams are not solely responsible for this friction since business units often try to solve technology challenges independently — often unsuccessfully. Additionally, your organization is likely attempting to navigate the application ecosystem sprawl and vastly complex compliance and security landscape.

IT leaders face the monumental task of balancing these three issues while enabling the organization to meet larger goals.

How Automation can help

Through no-code integration solutions and robotic process automation (RPA), business teams can match the ever-increasing expectations of customers and growing business demands. Allowing business teams to self-serve their own needs allows IT teams to use existing resources and personnel more efficiently, work within budgetary limitations, and focus on high-priority projects.

However, automation solutions must incorporate IT oversight across all development activities. Doing so gives business teams the autonomy to complete their tasks and allows IT teams to govern and monitor their solutions. By empowering business teams with automation projects, IT teams will have more time to focus on critical tasks and have time to develop new solutions.
