so Intelligent Robotic Process Automation Summit, Brisbane
Ways to convince Your Boss Ways to Save

Intelligent Robotic Process Automation (IRPA) technology is the next frontier for businesses looking to streamline processes, increase productivity and ultimately improve the bottom-line.

IRPA typically uses artificial intelligence to handle repetitive, rules-based, back-office tasks. And the market is about to experience a period of "explosive" growth.

The IRPA/RPA market grew 64 percent to $200 million last year and is expected to grow 70 to 90 percent by 2020 because successful pilot projects are inspiring buyer confidence in the technology, the consulting and research firm reports.

However, there are some barriers to adoption, such as IT departments concerned about data security and loss of control. Plus, replacing staff with robots in some sectors, such as government, could become a political minefield.

Join us at IRPA Summit in March to hear from subject matter experts currently evaluating IRPA for their businesses in areas such as Finance, Procurement, HR, Outsourcing, Automation, etc.

While Intelligent Robotic Process Automation (IRPA) is often the first tool to garner investment as it leads to quick wins with a lower investment, IRPA is only one tool in the automation toolbox, and this event covers the gamut of intelligent automation technologies including cognitive, machine learning, AI, and more.

Topic Abstract

Change resilience deficit is crippling RPA projects. Current analysis of ‘RPA Bubble’, the disparity between increased investment in RPA and the significant number of failed RPA projects, has failed to acknowledge the importance of appropriate change management. Fear and hostility towards automation from a variety of stakeholders can prolong and derail RPA projects, yet so far improvement strategies have been limited to refocussed leadership/governance, blaming traditionalist IT Deptartments, and better process identification. Implementing change resilience tools across the workforce will reduce internal friction before it can dismantle your RPA project. Tools such as inclusive communications, transparent leadership, active redeployment can build a change resilient workforce. However, just as process fragmentation isn’t good for RPA, fragmented efforts at resilience building do more harm than good; a considered holistic approach will realise more benefits.

Topic Abstract

The success of an automation project involves finding each organisations "balance point" across 3 key variables: People, Tech, Maturity (task, process, function, organisation).
- Focusing solely on the 'shiny new toy' (ie Technology) can lead to unintended consequences, unrealitic expectations, critical risk factors.
- Alignment across Mindset, Toolset, 'honest' Readiness ensures functional, scalable and robust enterprise grade outcomes can be delivered.
We will explain how we solved problems for clients through adopting the above approach. We will focus on 2-3 use cases to deliver the message/learnings.
