Work Smarter, Not Harder: Discover Sitefinity 13.2

A lot of us are working harder than ever—working on pivotal projects that are helping to evolve the digital experience and deliver important business outcomes. Although it’s a great feeling to be able to impact the business, sometimes having so many priorities, deadlines and responsibilities can cause burnout.

To prevent burnout, it’s important to first understand the cause of this influx of projects. How has the business landscape and market evolved to get us to the point we’re at today?

There’s Pressure to Be Able to Achieve More with Less

We asked our customers to give us feedback on their current goals and priorities to figure out how we can make their lives easier. We found that a lot of customers and users were aiming to achieve similar objectives, the most common ones being:

  1. Keeping pace with a growing competitive landscape—Players continue to enter the market and advance their digital strategy to achieve growing business results. Customers mentioned it's extremely important to keep pace to maintain competitive advantage.
  2. Scaling digital strategy while reducing IT overheadIn a dynamic business environment, business leaders need to be able to scale their digital strategy and operations. However, its critical to continue to minimize overhead associated with the supporting technology to ensure cost-effectiveness.
  3. Enabling self-service for both customers and end usersOrganizations need to interact with their customers and drive business onlinewithout reliance on physical business locations. And end users need to be able to do their work independently, without dependencies on other teams.
  4. Meeting customer needs and internal needs for agile time to marketOur users are looking to serve their own customers with content that is timely and relevant. This requires being able to create and publish content on the flywithout cross-team dependencies.
  5. Engaging with customers in a personalized way—Organizations are looking to develop 1-on-1 relationships with their customers by offering personalized journeys that appeal to customers’ preferences, demographics and behavior.
  6. Ensuring performant, always-on experience deliveryNow that many businesses rely on their online experience, its critical to prevent lackluster performance or outages that could negatively impact customer experience and revenue.

Successful digital experiences require the collaboration between a multitude of cross-functional teams—from content creators, to digital marketers, to IT, to developers, to administrators (and often times more). Many are under pressure to be able to essentially do more on a daily basis to help their teams meet these goals that are critical to the business.

But, Daily Responsibilities Remain the Same

No matter what job function you may be in—there are certain processes, tasks, operations pertaining to your digital experience that you need to make happen on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, on top of the growing goals the business is setting and the projects that are growing in complexity.

These daily tasks can grow cumbersome—especially if they require getting approvals from different stakeholders, assistance from cross-functional teams, repetitive steps to get the same results, etc. Tools that can remove unneeded steps, automate workflows, connect processes and make you more productive can save you from working through lunch or trying to clone yourself.
