BPM is better

Why Business Process Management is a better choice than only process mapping in GDPR tools Companies and organizations are experiencing the first stage of a new digital support: GDPR management tools.

The problem In some cases the approach of the solution is technological -systems designed as if they were independent or of static nature- while in other cases it’s functional, thus technical in compliance matters, still specific.

IT Policies

The importance of ITP Targets and benefits of ITP Today it’s almost impossible to find organizations of any size not using information technology (IT); moreover, the smaller the company the more it relies on automation or IT services. It is both a powerfull tool for business and, if not properly managed, a certain source of risks and hidden costs. IT specialists inside organizations are expensive and should not be on payroll if IT is not the core business of the company, but even in those cases, outsourcing is a common practice; the task of harmonization of services and assets is…
