10 Signs you Need a Better Process Modeling Solution

Process improvement is everybody’s business. Where do you fit in? 

Not sure of where to begin with documenting your processes? IBM Blueworks Live has some process templates ready for you to customize. These templates are a great way to learn how to use the documentation and mapping tools that are available to you. 


Once the current processes have been discovered and documented in as much detail as possible, IBM Blueworks Live facilitates conversations around change to occur through analysis tools that give the organization quick visibility into the areas where trans-formation would bring about the most return for investment. These insights can then be acted upon either through changing the way resources are allocated or tasks executed or through automating non value add activities by bringing the documented process into IBM’s on premise BPM suite of products such as IBM Business Process Manager.

Predictions for 2016


As told by SureSkills CTO Kevin Reid for TechPro Magazine.

The founder of philosophical Taoism, Lao-Tzu, was guarded about predicting the future, stating “Those who have knowledge, don’t predict. Those who predict, don’t have knowledge”. While there is astuteness in that view, having been asked to make predictions for the world of technology in 2016 I must at least pretend that Lao-Tzu may not have been 100% accurate. 

Owing to the fact that the world of technology is such a fast-changing one, I will make the following predictions for what will be the big trends and opportunities for 2016.

AWS Certification Skills Gap

AWSome Days Summary - As told by Principal Cloud Evangelist, Calvin RiskowitzCalvin-Riskowitz-SureSkills-Image

Wow! Another highly successful AWSome Day event in Galway. These past few months have seen a series of presentations around the country co-hosted and co-presented by both SureSkills and AWS. If you missed any of them – they were run in Dublin, Cork, Belfast and Galway. I was amazed by the response in all 4 centres – in each location we were hard pushed to accommodate the number of interested people wanting to attend and learn more about the AWS Cloud. 

Each event occupied the entire day, and each was full of technical presentations and information, and certainly not for the faint hearted! We even had quite a few delegates driving long distances from other areas to attend.

Need to Develop Digital Skills Among All Ages

Younger employees aren't the only ones who are tech savvy - older staff want to be involved and be trained up in IT too. 


That's according to research from VMware that shows companies should set aside the "millennial myth" that only younger employees have an interest in technology. Instead, employees of all ages would benefit from digital skills training, and employees should expand their focus beyond millennials in order to better drive digital transformation. In a study of 5,700 EMEA employees, it was found that training in digital skills is desired by all age groups working in the sector, contradicting the "myth" that has developed within the industry and beyond. 

Of the respondents, 69 per cent believed that more widespread use of digital skills in the UK would increase revenue and profitability over five years, while 75 per cent said it would improve their company’s competitive edge and 73 per cent believe it would aid collaboration between colleagues.
