The Importance of Governance

Now, let’s take a closer look at the key components of governance when working with Nintex Automation Cloud.

  1. Clear Roles and Responsibilities

Imagine a world without defined roles and responsibilities. Chaos, right? That’s why it’s essential to have clear guidelines on who does what when it comes to Nintex Automation Cloud. By assigning specific roles, you ensure that everyone knows their part and can work together seamlessly. It’s like having a superhero squad where everyone has their unique superpower. Think about who owns the platform, who can make global changes, and who owns each process. 

  1. Standardised Processes and Workflows

Standardised processes and workflows are all about providing a consistent and efficient way of doing things – day to day tasks, employee onboarding, performance reviews, even contract creation and distribution. By following established best practices, you save time, avoid unnecessary confusion, and ensure that your automation efforts are a perfect fit for your business. Within Workflows and Forms this could be how you name variables, naming of rules and the labelling of actions in a Workflow. 

  1. Data Security and Privacy

We live in a world where data is king, and protecting it can put a strain on security. When working with Nintex Automation Cloud, you want to make sure that your data is as secure as Superman’s secret identity. Implementing robust security measures, like secure data transmission and access controls, ensures that your sensitive information stays safe from any prying eyes. It’s like having a protective shield around your data, giving you peace of mind. Who has access to what data, what 3rd party applications and what level of access are all things to be considered. 

  1. Change Management

Change is inevitable, and Nintex Automation Cloud gives you the power to adapt and evolve. But remember, with great power comes… well, you know the rest. Change management is all about handling those adjustments in a controlled and organised manner. By documenting and communicating changes, you can keep everyone in the loop on process management and minimise any disruptions. It’s like having a weather forecast for your automation initiatives!

By keeping an eye on your processes, setting up key performance indicators (KPIs), and leveraging Nintex analytics, you gain valuable insights into how your automation efforts are doing.
