Holocentric feature in Gartner's Market Guide for Technologies - Supporting a Digital Twin of your Organisation

Gartner, Inc., a leading research and advisory firm listed Holocentric as a Representative Vendor in Technology supporting a DTO in its July 2018 “Market Guide for Technologies Supporting a DTO”.

A digital twin of the organization is defined as a “dynamic software model of any organization that relies on operational and/or other data to understand how an organization operationalizes its business model, connects with its current state, responds to changes, deploys resources and delivers expected customer value”.

Knowledge Management – Why is it critical for organisations?

Recently, Knowledge Management experts have emphasised that even small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) without a proper strategy to enable streamlined information flow between business units, to and from the right people at the right time, will likely suffer the consequences of decreased productivity and effectiveness of business operations.

Knowledge Management (KM) is nothing new - organisations have always known of its importance, but how should they go about achieving these goals to ensure they maximise the value it can create for the organisation? 

A timely break for disability service providers

NDIS asks providers to hold off registering until after July 1.

The long-cherished aspiration to have consistent quality in service standards Australia-wide in the disability sector, will soon start to become a reality.

The NDIS is hoping to provide a smooth transition for service-providers when its new Quality and Safeguards Commission (NDIS Commission) rolls out in NSW and SA after July 1.

For this reason it is encouraging caution.

Improve performance, simulate the future and effect change with Process Mining and Holocentric BMS

 Process mining” is Gartners latest hot topic. Let’s discuss just how important this is and how it relates to a Business Management System (BMS) like ours and what is the ongoing value?

Process mining explores enterprise applications and traces the progress of transactions. It builds a picture of actual processes by following transactions through various paths. Unlike a consultant’s theoretical view, process mining works with actual data to determine the paths that transactions take

Benefits of Optimizing Your Business Processes

A key focus of many organisations is the ability to optimize their current business processes. Business processes are the foundation to running a business or organisation effectively, however over time business operating procedures and processes can become inefficient, wasting time and resources. According to market research firm IDC, this can cost businesses 20 to 30 percent of their yearly revenue and also lead to internal dissatisfaction and missed opportunities for growth. To ensure businesses continue to grow and operate effectively, it is important for companies to regularly revaluate and update their business processes.

Quality Management in the Disability Services Environment

The change to the NDIS in the disability services provider market within Australia has forced providers to look at their viability and quality standards, and organisations must adapt to a new person-centric business model or perish.

The disruption means services now have stricter pricing controls and there are considerable administrative overheads in everything from requesting payment for services, to meeting the quality standards. These have contributed pressure to the bottom line. Most providers have responded positively to this by looking at ways to improve productivity; however there are still opportunities to streamline operations further.

Why Usage Data is Important For Change Management

Usage data is one of the most effective ways of evaluating the relevancy and value of a system. By knowing what users are viewing or not viewing, organizations are able to understand what is of value to their users and effectively manage when change needs to be communicated. Effective change management requires the use of data but few companies are transforming their data into insights to understand the needs and interests of their users.

Holocentric Launches Centro FREE™ – A Free Online Resource for NDIS Service Providers

As the NDIS continues to gather momentum, many disability service providers are feeling the effects of significant change. Holocentric’s research at the recent NSW National Disability Service (NDS) Conference showed that 76% of NDIS service providers were highly concerned about achieving a clearer understanding of NDIS policies and changes as well as streamlining the approach to NDIS compliance.
