The company first rolled out new automation capabilities to its Jira platform in 2020, and Trautman said it will not stop with Confluence: it plans to launch additional automation functionality in other products in future.

9 Android accessibility treasures that'll make anyone more productive
Accessibility in our age of mobile technology is a pretty inspiring thing.

I mean, think about it: These powerful little computers we carry around in our purses and pantaloon pockets have the potential to open up all sorts of futuristic possibilities. Their effects can be downright life-changing for folks with issues like impaired hearing or limited vision — and in the grand scheme of things, those sorts of advancements are far more meaningful than any random phone feature we use to organize our lives or save ourselves a few seconds here and there.

Here's the cool part, though: Those two areas don't have to be mutually exclusive. Some of Android's most interesting accessibility options are poised to both help those who truly need 'em and be handy in a way that can benefit anyone. They work for accessibility, sure, but they're also valuable for far more mundane productivity gains.

Your next job recruiter might be an AI bot
Amid a recent spate of high-profile layoffs and a recognition many companies rushed to hire to fill pandemic-driven business needs, organizations are now refocusing on quality of hiring — and the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to aid in those efforts.

From 35% to 45% of companies are expected to use AI-based talent acquisition software and services to help select and interview job prospects in the coming year, according to two recent studies.

Nearly three in four organizations boosted their purchases of talent acquisition technology in 2022 and 70% plan to continue investing this year — even if a recession arrives — according to a survey by online job recruitment service Modern Hire.

From monolith to modular: How enterprise content management is evolving
As digital technologies have transformed the way people create, move, and store their data over the decades, managing the multitude of physical documents and digital data produced by a company has remained an ongoing challenge for businesses. Technologies such as cloud-based apps and services, along with regulatory requirements around the storage and protection of customer data, have required companies to explore technology solutions for document and data management.

In earlier days, this meant investing in a document management system (DMS), which helped companies digitally store and manage paper-based and online documents. The rise of web-based technologies created content management systems (CMSes), which managed digitally created content, but also included formats such as audio, video, images, and HTML-based files.

How to pick the right DEX tool for the best digital employee experience
The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically changed the way people work, as working from home became the rule rather than the exception. Moving forward, many companies are continuing to support 100% remote workforces, or they're adopting a hybrid work model, with some employees working in the corporate office, some working at home, and many splitting their time between the two.

These remote and hybrid workers rely on company-provided technology to communicate with managers, co-workers, and customers. Savvy organizations want to provide every worker with a good digital employee experience (DEX) — the perception that employees have about the technology they interact with for work. To do that, companies need total visibility into how their employees are experiencing the technology they depend on to do their jobs.

Digital whiteboards: The next must-have tool for hybrid teams?
The scope of workplace collaboration tools available to teams today stretches far beyond anything employees might have imagined two and a half years ago. When work-from-home orders swept the globe in early 2020, most organizations were focused on ensuring they had viable video and chat platforms in place. Now, as a significant proportion of employees have decided to work outside of the office for at least part of the work week, tools that do more than just support workers' basic communication needs are becoming more sought after.

One product that has seen an explosion in growth this year has been the digital whiteboard. Also known as visual collaboration platforms or shared canvas apps, these tools let hybrid teams collaborate visually via an online interface.

Slack offers new DocuSign integration to streamline e-signature process
Slack has announced a new contact lifecycle management (CLM) integration with e-signature platform DocuSign, allowing users to navigate the full agreement processes inside their Slack workspace.

Although users already had the ability to send, sign and collaborate on agreements with DocuSign eSignature for Slack, much of the process still required the need for access to multiple, disparate systems, for internal and external stakeholders alike.

The new DocuSign CLM for Slack app instead allows colleagues and customers to navigate the full agreement process, including redlining, reviewing and approving, directly within Slack. This removes the need for signatories to check their emails or switch to different systems in order to receive status updates.

How to build a ‘citizen developer' workforce
With a tech talent gap that's expected to worsen in the next few years, organizations and business users are increasingly looking to low-code and no-code app development to fill digital transformation needs.

In fact, for many business users, knowing how to use low-code and no-code to build apps is becoming more of the rule than the exception. (The difference between no-code and low-code is that the latter enables some customization because developers have access to command-line coding; no-code depends on visual tools such as pull-down menus and drag-and drop building blocks.)

Planned ‘fixes' for credit-card interchange fees will actually make fraud easier
I love it when organizations try and do something good, but don't think things through and end up delivering unintended negative consequences.

Today's case in point: the US Senate and the Federal Reserve, both of whom are looking to reduce high interchange costs, but are unintentionally increasing costs for merchants and sharply boosting the undiscovered fraud rate. Not bad for government work.

Let's start with the Senate, where Sens. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Roger Marshall (R-KS) have crafted The Credit Card Competition Act of 2022. Its stated goal: reduce the interchange fee that financial institutions and card brands (Visa, MasterCard, Amex, etc.) charge retailers.

PixieBrix: A crafty tool that lets you tailor any website for your team
This wacky ol' World Wide Web of ours has plenty of good things going for it, but customization isn't exactly its core strength.

For the most part, the web is what it is — a take-it-or-leave-it sort of affair. And especially when your business leans on lots of browser-based tools and services, as so many companies do these days, that can really limit how useful and efficient of an experience you and your teammates can have.

That's precisely the problem a startup called PixieBrix set out to solve. PixieBrix lets you take total control of the web and make it work any way you want. That means you can simplify common website interfaces to eliminate distractions and optimize your environment, for one — but even more powerfully, it means you can add elements into websites and turn any standard site into your own custom, company-specific workspace.

Q&A: FNA's Carlos León on how digital money can be more efficient and safe
Governments across the globe are exploring or already piloting digital forms of national currencies, which have the potential to enable faster, less expensive retail and corporate transactions — and more secure money transfers.

Central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) can also bolster financial inclusion because customers don't have to have a bank account to hold them; they can instead use encrypted "digital wallets" that exist in the cloud, on a desktop or laptop, or even on USB storage device.

In March, US President Joe Biden issued an executive order calling for more research on developing a national digital currency through the Federal Reserve Bank, or "The Fed." The order highlighted the need for more regulatory oversight of cryptocurrencies, which have been used for nefarious activities such as money laundering. The Fed has been investigating the creation of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) for years.

Word for Microsoft 365 cheat sheet
Word has always been the workhorse app of the Microsoft Office suite. Nearly everyone who uses Office ends up using Word at some point, whether it be for writing memos, typing up agendas, creating reports, crafting business correspondence or any of a thousand other uses.

Microsoft sells Office under two models: Individuals and businesses can pay for the software license up front and own it forever (what the company calls the "perpetual" version of the suite), or they can purchase a Microsoft 365 or Office 365 subscription, which means they have access to the software for only as long as they keep paying the subscription fee.

When you purchase a perpetual version of the suite — say, Office 2019 or Office 2021 — its applications will never get new features, whereas apps in the "365" subscriptions are continually updated with new features. For more details, see our comparison of the two Office models.

Apple introduced "Sign in with Apple" a couple of years ago. Like similar options from Facebook and Google, the feature allows users to sign into apps and websites using their Apple ID rather than creating a unique account for each app or site.

Unlike other options, however, Apple allows users to choose whether their email address and related information is shared with each app/site. If a user chooses not to share this information, Apple will create a separate unique address to present to the app/site and will forward any mail to the user's actual email address.

6 virtual collaboration solutions for remote teams
So many employers don't yet see that modern employee experiences demand autonomy and flexibility more than they need presence. It's no surprise that since the pandemic struck, technologists have been busily attempting to build collaborative tools to support the distributed hybrid future of work.

Here's a look at some of the virtual collaboration tools available to companies.

Why these tools are important Every survey suggests workers are more willing to find a new job than return to the bad old days of presence-based micro-management. Arguments that returning to the workplace boost collaboration may have some weight, but  much of this relies on old-fashioned email and virtual meetings held from the office, rather than the home.

Unified endpoint management (UEM) has become a strategic technology at the center of companies' efforts to control this increasingly complex environment. Essentially combining enterprise mobility management (EMM) tools with PC management tools, UEM platforms help companies manage and protect a range of devices including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers across multiple operating systems — all from a unified interface.

Q&A: The digital dollar — how would it work, what would it do?
Over the past month, various world governments have stepped up efforts to create their own national digital currencies. The efforts are in response to the growing popularity of private sector decentralized digital currencies, such as Bicoin, that exist without the backing of a central bank or commercial banks.

In recent weeks, US President Joe Biden has issued an executive order to investigate how to regulate  cryptocurrencies and speed up research into creating a digital dollar that would be backed by the Federal Reserve Bank and essentially "minted" by the US Treasury. Lawmakers then offered up a bill that would allow the US Treasury to create a digital dollar. And soon after that, the UK ramped up its own efforts to regulate cryptocurrencies and create a non-fungible token backed by the Bank of England.

Top 6 e-signature software tools
The COVID-19 pandemic did not just disrupt physical meetings and physical office spaces; workflows that relied on in-person interaction, such as signing documents and contracts, were also highly impacted. Electronic signature (e-signature) software has surged in popularity over the past two years as enterprises looked to modify their signature workflows to support a remote workforce, said Holly Muscolino, group vice president for content strategies and future of work at IDC.

With many companies returning to an in-person office environment or adopting a hybrid workforce approach, where employees work some days in the office and some at home, e-signature vendors are working to convince businesses that they are still relevant. Although the market has slowed down, Muscolino said, "it's still showing healthy growth, because there are still companies who have not adopted this technology. There is still significant room for adoption."

As the amount of data organizations create continues to mushroom, they're all dealing with the same challenge: how to enable their employees to find the answers they need to do their jobs when the information is hidden in different sources, including email servers, databases, network drives, cloud drives, and countless SaaS apps. When workers can't find the information they need to stay productive, the effectiveness of the entire business suffers.

What organizations need are tools that allow workers to search for information across multiple sources inside the enterprise. Enterprise search software does just that, offering a single application that provides total access to all enterprise content — from HR policies and help desk documents to marketing materials and ongoing project discussions — no matter where it resides.

This isn't just an AI problem; it's true of most forms of automation. Projects fail because the people building the solution have no clue about the actual goal, the nature and dependencies of their current operations, or even whether those operations are optimized. (In some ways that last one suggests an AI failure might be more beneficial - if you have a bad process in  place, the last thing you want to do is speed it up!)

To achieve success, you first need to fix the process or operation, fully define it, set forth a set of achievable goals for the AI project and staff, and then execute on it. That's why I'm fascinated by BCG, a consultancy that is increasingly focused on AI; its tactics evolved out of efforts to help companies improve operations with a strategic goal in mind.

Slack's iPad app gets a desktop-like makeover
Slack is updating its iPad app, with a refreshed layout which more closely resembles its desktop experience.

The updates to the iPad app include a refreshed sidebar that keeps channels organized and easy to navigate. Sections are now collapsible, allowing users to hide groups of channels and focus on just the most relevant conversations, while section preferences can be synced with the desktop version, keeping the sidebar consistent when users switch between devices.

Usernames in direct messages now feature avatars, making them easier to scan, and channel activity can now be sorted by recency, so team updates can be reviewed more quickly.

Russia is likely using cryptocurrency to thwart sanctions
US and European sanctions over the past week and a half have put the screws to the Russian government and its oligarchs who are likely using alternative methods to ferry their cash across borders.

"We do believe it is very likely that Russian companies and nationals are trying to use crypto assets like Bitcoin or the US Dollar-pegged stablecoin, such as Tether (USDT), to circumvent the economic sanctions," said Josh Olszewicz, head of research at Valkyrie Funds, a digital asset investment manager.

Stablecoins are tied to fiat or cash-backed by central banks, while Bitcoin and other non-stablecoin digital currencies derives value from supply and demand and otherwise have no intrinsic value. Non-fungible tokens or NFTs are digital tokens tied to assets other than cash, but those "assets" can also be as valuable as art and real estate or as meaningless as a random photograph or stuffed animal.

SAP and Oracle suspend business in Russia
In the wake of the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, SAP and Oracle have both announced that they are suspending all business operations in Russia.

The decision from the two major IT vendors came in the wake of a request from Ukrainian Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov, who posted letters he'd written to both companies on Twitter yesterday.

In his letter to Oracle, Fedorov wrote: "The IT industry always supports values of responsibility and democracy…now, more than ever, people's lives depend on your choice."

Oracle replied to the tweet, stating that on behalf of the people of Ukraine and its elected government, the company has "suspended all operations in the Russian Federation". However, the company has not provided any further comment on the situation since the tweet was posted.

Slack vs. Teams: Which is best for your business?
Chat-based collaboration software is a must-have in today's business environment, with Slack and Microsoft Teams the two leading options for the enterprise. The stakes couldn't be higher — the pandemic made clear that remote work and collaboration are the future of business.

Slack, which went public back in 2019, was bought by enterprise software giant Salesforce in July 2021 for $27.7 billion. Until the acquisition, it wasn't clear that Slack could survive against behemoth Microsoft, which has a gazillion revenue streams to rely upon and is giving Teams away for free in most Office 365 and Microsoft 365 plans. But now that Slack has sugar daddy Salesforce behind it, with a valuation north of $200 billion and annual income of more than $20 billion, it can better compete.

The rise of digital bosses: They can hire you — and fire you
The use of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) has exploded just as managers and executives are adapting to hybrid work environments and struggling to oversee remote employees.

A recent report from research firm IDC predicts that by 2024, 80% of Global 2000 companies will use AI/ML-enabled "Digital Managers" to hire, fire, and train workers in jobs measured by continuous improvement — but only one in five companies will get any real value from the move without human engagement.

10 top file-sharing services: Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, OneDrive, and more
Back in the pre-cloud days, sharing files involved using file transfer protocol applications or else copying files to a disc and then mailing it or walking it over to a colleague (affectionately known as ‘sneakernet'). Emails could also be sent (and many people still use email as their main "file-sharing" option), but size limits on attachments and security concerns discouraged this practice.

Today's world of file sharing offers nearly endless options. Giants like Dropbox, Box, Google, Microsoft, and Apple, as well as smaller companies like MediaFire and Tresorit, all offer online cloud storage options that include file sharing, synchronization across multiple devices, and collaboration features. Once you have uploaded a file to one of these services, file-sharing is as easy as clicking a "share" button and then sending the link to a colleague via email. While most offer desktop and mobile applications, users can also upload, store, sync, and share files via a web browser.

4 quick tips for Cortana in Windows 10
Microsoft's digital assistant Cortana was one of the major additions to Windows 10 when it first came out. But it was launched back in December 2015, and it's changed quite a bit since then. Over the years, it's had new features added, and then others taken away. Depending on which version of Windows you're using, it may be integrated directly into the Windows Search box, or run as an entirely separate app.

No matter which version you use, though, it's a very useful tool and can do a lot for you, including alerting you to upcoming meetings; searching your PC and the web; telling you about the weather, news, and sports; and a lot more.

What is Trello? A guide to Atlassian's collaboration and work management tool
Trello is a collaborative work management app designed to track team projects, highlight tasks underway, shoe who they are assigned to, and detail progress towards completion.

At its core, Trello relies on the principles of Kanban project boards to visualize workflows, providing managers and team members with a simple overview of a project from start to finish.

Trello's key components are boards, lists, and cards.

Boards are the starting point, and typically focus on an over-arching project such as launching a new website, or process-based tasks, such as on-boarding an employee. Within each board, several lists can be created to indicate the progress of a project; "to do," "in progress," and "done" lists are common examples. Individual cards within the lists hold information on a specific task and can be moved from list to list as needed (such as when a task is completed).

How to choose desk booking software for the hybrid workplace
With COVID-19 vaccination programs underway, many companies are hoping to reopen their offices in the not-too-distant future. Most are looking to a hybrid work model, where employees split their time between working in the office and working at home. Although office reopenings may be put on hold as cases surge throughout the U.S. and elsewhere, it's not too soon to begin making plans for a safe return for employees.

The office that workers return to will look quite different as companies reconfigure their office space to support safety guidelines around social distancing, cleaning and disinfection, and capacity limits. The concept that an employee has a permanent desk or office goes out the window if that employee only works in the office two to three times a week, or if the number of workers exceeds the number of available workspaces. To manage this, companies are turning desks and cubicles into common workspaces that anyone in the company can reserve for the day.

The best progressive web apps for productivity
Say the phrase "progressive web app" to most people — including tech-savvy professionals — and you're bound to be met with a consistent reaction: the classic blank stare, probably followed by a period of awkward silence.

Progressive web apps  — or PWAs, as they're often called — are one of the most promising app-related advancements of the past several years, but they're still relatively uncommon, completely confusing, and consequently quite misunderstood. Part of that is an issue of branding: Plain and simple, "progressive web app" is a dreadfully clunky name that seems more intended for developers than the general public.

Part of it is consistency, as the capabilities of PWAs vary wildly from one program to the next. And part of it is presentation, as the method for finding and installing PWAs is anything but obvious, and there's no great centralized storefront for browsing through available options or assessing their quality.
