Welcome to the May edition of the Document Manager eNewsletter, which includes a thought-provoking article from Jim Close of Kofax that argues that for many organisations the time has come to review the multiple systems and repositories that have developed over time, and consider a single platform approach for future automation.

Multinational companies have spent the last several years - decades even in some cases - accumulating point solutions for automation to support business operations as the need has arisen. Slowly but surely, this has resulted in fragmented and siloed automation projects.

As Close suggests: "Almost all organisations believe a single-vendor approach to automation will help resolve challenges. Uniting under a centralised intelligent automation platform brings together previously fragmented projects and makes it possible to address all the company's needs across the spectrum of digital imperatives. This path is the equivalent of a short cut, empowering your organisation to achieve end-to-end automation and digitally enabled workflows faster."

In theory of course, this all sounds good - but the sticking point may be in how/when an organisation can genuinely 'unite' these disparate entities. Are we really talking about 'rip and replace' under a new banner? I'd be interested to hear what readers think: feel free to share your thoughts via the email address below.
