X Topic Abstract

Intelligent Automation (IA) helps companies realize the next wave of operational efficiency, experience true insight from data rich analytics and accelerate their digital evolution. Intelligent solutions can emulate human behavior, make decisions and learn from experience.

Organizations interested in achieving operational efficiencies in their business and IT processes through Intelligent Automation employ a three-phased strategy. The first phase involves assessing the current level of process automation maturity and identification of pilot quick win opportunities to begin the Intelligent Automation journey. The second phase is to identify what the major business/IT processes are and align them along the Do-Think-Learn service continuum. The last part of the strategy is to define a roadmap using the crawl, walk and run framework. This session enables participants to learn the evolution from Standard process automation using Robotics to Enhanced intelligent automation using machine learning and artificial intelligence through real-life case study examples.

X Topic Abstract

I had heard the rumors, RPA is just a glorified excel macro, one of the latest buzzwords like AI or Machine Learning. But I gave it a chance, and that’s not the case. RPA is a powerful tool and it grabbed ahold of me like the summer of 86’, I could see the infinite possibilities, the tricks we could teach these software robots.” (86 is a reference to skateboarding)

X Topic Abstract

Every leader in every company is looking to conduct a AI POC to improve their core operations. In spite of multiple POC’s there are very few large scale successful adoption of AI in B2B use cases. Infact AI led innovation to an operator is fast becoming a scary word for operators as lot of SME time sunk or a solution where SME’s are required to do more instead of less to improve the model post implementation. At WK GRC we have been able to achieve a much better success rate by creating a join team of design thinkers, data scientists and SME’s together under one leadership to drive the change. In this talk, we would share the approach followed to transform legacy processes and systems without 5 year digital transformation projects and to generate customer value in matter of months instead of years.
