As technological capabilities grow and applications multiply and advance, the end-user is moving increasingly toward the center of operations. Nowadays, customer-facing aspects of business are the focus of optimization efforts, and end-user experience is a touchstone of the contemporary world. Unsurprisingly, healthcare and finance have emerged as two of the most critical verticals for delivering value, beneficial engagement and great service to customers. Due to these two verticals’ involvement with some of the most important and personal aspects of day-to-day life — money and physical well-being — both have established a focal point on consumerization, creating new and successful means of engaging and establishing trust with their customers.
There are a number of ways in which entities throughout these vital sectors are addressing rising demands from consumers. In healthcare, remote services and physical devices are revolutionizing the way patients are treated and monitored, especially when it comes to rural or underserved communities. In finance, banking apps and other mobile capabilities are putting people in touch with their banking in new and helpful ways. In fact, in 2019, the amount of the adult U.S. population utilizing mobile banking is projected to increase by over 62 percent. Overall, putting expanded control and capabilities into the hands of the customer and raising the bar for how well, and how fast, consumer needs are addressed, is amplifying the success of businesses who choose to adopt this customer-first approach.
Although, with new capabilities come new complexities. Due to the sensitive nature of the data at stake, healthcare (which boasted a 2018 revenue in North America of around $714 billion) and finance (which has a projected U.S. revenue of $514 billion by 2022) are no stranger to IT challenges. Both industries are facing mounting strain from the pressure to minimize cyber threats, avoid security breaches, protect customer and patient data, improve network performance, provide increased visibility, reduce time and costs, establish comprehensive solutions — the list goes on.
Fortunately, addressing this extended list of operational concerns doesn’t have to put an enormous burden on all companies.
