The Aragon Research Tech Spectrum™ for Digital Transaction Management, 2015 – Moving beyond Paper
Traditionally, paper has been the way that business has been conducted. Now in the digital era, electronic documents are the norm. While Digital Transaction Management (DTM) is all about doing transactions digitally, it is more importantly about the process of keeping document processes fully digital, including, but not limited to, the electronic signature. This research note evaluates 10 providers who are at various stages of DTM enablement.
The race to the digital workplace is about eliminating analog processes. DTM applications use cloud-based software and services to digitally-manage a wide range of document-centric business processes involving people, documents, data, and transactions both inside and outside the firewall. As more processes move to the digital domain, we will see a reduction in the use of paper as the sole record to complete those processes. The issue isn’t that paper will not be used; it’s that the need to print documents is decreasing.
