November Newsletter 2021

This month’s newsletter featured an insightful research report that we commissioned with our iPaaS partner, Workato. The report shows the findings of a survey we conducted to help us identify where organisations are in their digital transformation journeys, and if process automation is on the roadmap for addressing manual process pain points.

Although the research was based on Public Sector organisations, we’re noticing the same trends in the Private Sector too, so it’s worth a read!
