Intelligent automation (IA) has emerged as a catch-all term for various change agent technologies – such as robotic process automation (RPA), artificial intelligence (AI), and smart analytics – that are being deployed individually or in concert to help enterprises around the globe significantly expand the degree of automation of their IT and business processes. IA enables the digital transformation of the ‘heart’ of an organization by offering the ability to fundamentally change how business operations are executed and to develop new business models using hybrid digital and human workforces. But there’s still a gap between rhetoric and reality as evidenced by a notable lack of scaled automation programs with impressive benefits.
Overall the intelligent automation market is scaling – but not fast enough and with far less focus on enabling broad change than is required. Enterprises are investing their budgets and other resources to close the gap between rhetoric and reality. However objectives and aspirations for IA appear to be exponential while execution is quite linear. IA programs managed and governed as IT initiatives within existing organizational frameworks are having trouble scaling. Enterprises that incorporate ongoing change management befitting of a massive cultural and operational shift in how work is done, clear leadership and vision, talent development and reallocation – all executed with speed – are scaling faster and have the best financial performance. The potential for exponential benefits is real, as long as enterprises can scale.
In this upcoming leadership roundtable, we are going to close the gap between IA rhetoric and reality. We’ll discuss the why, what, and how of IA in the context of driving scale and achieving exponential outcomes:
- What is IA? The Triple-A-Trifecta (automation, AI and smart analytics) and the power of AND, enterprise adoption trends, and emerging use cases.
- Why is IA relevant? The strategic and operational potential of IA, the journey to the Digital OneOffice and enablement of the Hyperconnected Enterprise, and achieving linear versus exponential outcomes.
- How can my organization scale IA? The critical adoption and execution challenges, the critical importance of change management, achieving integrated automation, and the cultivation of an enterprise-wide automation mindset.
Join us to hear from experts who are leveraging automation to reinvent their organizations.
