The Future of Business Communication: Three Trends for 2024
Secaucus, 22.01.2024 // The experts at Retarus, specialist provider of enterprise-level cloud services for messaging, email security, and business integration, have identified three trends which are set to have a sustained impact on digital communication in 2024. Artificial intelligence, in particular, will play an increasingly significant role over the coming months, enabling companies to work more efficiently and achieve a competitive advantage.
1. Intelligent Document Processing
Increasing productivity and optimizing costs are top business priorities for companies in 2024, according to a recent study by the Everest Group. Consequently, we are seeing a high demand for Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) services, as such solutions substantially boost the efficiency of document processing operations. The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into Intelligent Document Processing is going to have a significant impact on business communication. Especially when it comes to accounting, AI-based IDP solutions have the power to considerably optimize the processing of documents. For instance, machine learning can be leveraged to automatically extract the relevant data from invoices in a variety of different file formats and convert it into structures which are machine-readable. This allows the processing of large volumes of documents within a short time. Under optimal conditions, capturing data by way of IDP solutions drives a substantial reduction in the error rate as well as enabling accuracy levels of up to 100 percent. Powerful IDP solutions can be customized effortlessly to meet the specific requirements of the respective company or sector. This means that companies benefit from faster processing of data, high recognition rates, and considerable cost savings. It is no wonder analysts are advising companies to make a point of ensuring they opt for an IDP solution which is AI-based and flexibly scalable.
2. AI-based Email Security Solutions
In 2024, AI is set to play a key role in email security. In a recent PwC survey, seven out of ten companies stated their intention to start using AI-based cyber security solutions within the next 12 months. This is because an increasing number of hackers are now employing generative AI (GenAI) in their attacks, especially since the launch of ChatGPT just over a year ago. Email remains the most commonly exploited gateway for intruders. Yet the same thing that is making cyber criminals more dangerous can also help to defend against them. AI-based security solutions, employed for instance in sandboxing and spam detection, reliably detect zero-day exploits and sophisticated phishing attacks early enough to proactively guard against them. Suitable SIEM tools (Security Information and Event Management) nowadays have state-of-the-art machine learning processes at their disposal, enabling them to duly analyze data from the various IT security applications they are using. In this way, a comprehensive solution provides essential insights on novel threats, making a crucial contribution to reducing future risk.
3. Innovative Ecosystems
The ability to innovate quickly is a prerequisite for success in today’s competitive marketplace, and intelligently leveraging cloud environments enables companies to achieve this competitive advantage. The multi-cloud-strategy – which allows companies to benefit from the state-of-the-art infrastructure, platforms, and services offered by various providers – helps them to build up their technology stacks with a high degree of flexibility. As a result, companies are able to react quickly to meet new market and customer requirements, adapt their business models as required, and drive innovation forward. Flexible cloud environments work best when the individual components are well aligned and closely coordinated. Ecosystems play a crucial role in this process. To ensure the success of cloud migration activities – and ultimately the cloud-based business models themselves – it is essential that these ecosystem services interact smoothly with each other in regards to the user and customer experience.
