Ways to convince Your Boss Ways to Save

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

IPA 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 IPA/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 IPA Summit in June to hear from subject matter experts currently evaluating IPA for their businesses in areas such as Finance, Procurement, HR, Outsourcing, Automation, etc.

While Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) is often the first tool to garner investment as it leads to quick wins with a lower investment, IPA 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

"Recent ISG Survey indicates that Industry wide Adoption of RPA based Automation In Business and associated services is 6-7% where as rest of the 80-85% potential is yet to be Scaled as either adoption is limited to creating Proof of concept or Identifying value driven Business case.

Few Organizations who were front runners in "crossing this chasm" have made it possible by not only scaling their Automation Adoption to 50% (and more) but also enhancing scope of Automation to "Intelligent Automation". These organizations adopted an IT Driven Digital business strategy. This is further detailed by Venkatraman & Henderson in Digital Matrix.

Digital Business Strategy underpins that sustained Adoption of Intelligent Automation by following a maturity-based IT Service framework. It encompasses continuous assessment transformation measurement and bettering ways of working, Thus increasing customer value proposition and achieve sustained competitive advantage".

Topic Abstract

One of the major challenges in any business context is to reduce complexity of business processes - be it for optimization, training or automation through bots. As a famous creativity & innovation Guru Edward de Bono says - "Dealing with complexity is an inefficient and unnecessary waste of time, attention and mental energy." Eventually this complexity might cost dollars for business. When it comes to reducing the complexity for automation, there are numerous ways. In the current session, I would like to present - "How to Simplify a Complex Process - the Sherlock Way..." The interpretations from this world renowned detective; guide business analyst to tackle complexity. At many instances one gets overwhelmed by the complexity, however one can say - "Elementary, Watson..." after analyzing the process Sherlock way. Once, the complexity is reduced, automation becomes effective and earns better RoI (Return on Investment). The session will cover topics like - Facets of Business Process, What does Sherlock has to say, how to reduce complexity for each facet, and couple of small cases to explain these techniques.

Topic Abstract

"Nearly 80% of companies are in the process of digital transformation—but of those, 90% are facing significant obstacles to success, according to a survey from AppDirect, 2019.
The major challenges cited by the executives surveyed are company culture (32%), lack of understanding and knowledge (24%), lack of expertise or technology talent (23%) and lack of digital transformation vision (20%) that have ultimately led companies to struggle.
The above challenges are inevitable until there is a change in approach and purpose with which the Digital Transformation is undertaken.

The talk will illustrate with real-life examples how a slight change in approach and effective use of RPA can guarantee a successful Digital Transformation and will cover following topics:
- Top-down vs Bottom-up approach
- Identifying the processes for automation
- Pros and Cons of forming a Core Team for Digital Transformation
- How to successfully migrate from Legacy systems using RPA
- Key success factors for having a sustainable and evolving Digital Transformation
