Navigating the Future of Business


Navigating the Future of Business: Top 3 Trends in Business Process Improvement

As we progress through 2024, the landscape of business process improvement (BPI) is undergoing transformative changes. Key trends are emerging that will shape the way organizations operate and succeed. Among these, the most influential include Intelligent Business Process Automation, Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) in BPI, and Green BPI. These are not just tech upgrades. They mark a pivotal shift in strategy, mirroring the seismic changes brought by the web and mobile revolutions. Embracing these trends early can catapult your organization to the heights of success, akin to the trailblazers of the dot-com boom. Ignore them, and you risk falling behind in an ever-accelerating race of innovation and efficiency.


Intelligent Business Process Automation

The evolution of BPI is being significantly marked by Intelligent Business Process Automation (IBPA), representing a paradigm shift from traditional methods to a more sophisticated, AI-driven approach. Integrating AI, Machine Learning (ML), and Robotic Process Automation, IBPA expands the scope of conventional process automation, enabling the automation of complex business processes while enhancing efficiency and accuracy. However, this transition to IBPA presents substantial challenges, particularly in data organization and management.

Companies that embark on this AI revolution have to confront issues with data that is not uniformly organized – stored in various formats, scattered across different datasets, and in some instances, still retained on paper. This situation necessitates a fundamental reassessment of data storage, management, and processing strategies. The S&P Global survey has highlighted other critical challenges: data management (cited by 32% of respondents), data security (26%), and accessing sufficient computing resources (20%) as the principal hurdles.

KSA Integration’s recent AI impact study for the U.S. Marine Corps Deputy Commandant for Information sheds light on similar challenges in a military context, highlighting the crucial need for data interoperability and efficient system integration when implementing AI technologies. This study, while focused on the Marine Corps, offers valuable insights for businesses adopting IBPA, emphasizing the importance of strategic data management and the potential of AI and ML to transform complex operational processes.


Generative AI in BPI

Mirroring the transformative impact of the web and mobile revolutions, Generative AI is poised to introduce new business models and processes in BPI. It brings a fresh perspective to traditional methods, rapidly prototyping and testing process models, and reducing the time and effort required in process development.

Yet, the adoption of Generative AI in BPI is also a journey. Many organizations estimate a horizon of up to five years to fully integrate AI into their workflows. This transition period underscores the importance of strategic planning and expert guidance in harnessing the potential of Generative AI for innovative and efficient process solutions.


Aligning Sustainability with Business Efficiency

In an era focused on environmental consciousness, Green BPI emerges as a major trend. This approach integrates sustainability into BPI, ensuring that ecological considerations are part of the fabric of business processes. Green BPI is about aligning environmental goals with business efficiency, a balance that is increasingly important in today’s business world.

As companies increase their use of AI, they will also have to consider its climate footprint. Many organizations are now re-evaluating their internal energy use targets to accommodate the computing power required by AI technologies. Moreover, the growing use of AI is also exerting pressure on internal energy usage targets, with 68% of the S&P Global survey respondents noting their climate footprint goals are strained by the substantial computing power AI demands.
