DELIVERING OPERATIONAL RESPONSIVENESS Operational responsiveness is the ability of business processes and systems to respond to changing conditions and customer interactions as they occur, enabling business leaders to capitalize on more opportunities, drive greater efficiencies, and reduce risk. This is more than IT agility or business process optimization. It s about plugging decision makers at every level into business activities and empowering them to continuously respond to the unexpected and effect change directly. In order to achieve operational responsiveness, organizations must be able to: 1. Gain real-time visibility into the business 2. Immediately sense-and-respond to events as they occur 3. Continuously improve business processes These three objectives require technology designed to deliver better responsiveness across the business that s Progress Software.
