The report’s major findings. The primary takeaway is that nearly three-quarters of staff are experiencing heightened complexity of their roles as buyer calls for improve. The complexity manifests as a sense of being overloaded with data, methods, processes and new applied sciences. Amongst particular challenges had been:

  • Dealing with inside processes and paperwork (89%).

It’s not essentially so in observe, as a part of Pega’s providing is that its software program is low code. Course of mining, workflow automation, and decisioning by AI could seem futuristic. But when it makes the route from 9 to 5 somewhat simpler to navigate, possibly it’s value it.
