Achieve Operational Stability and Growth Through Intelligent Automation

Achieve Operational Stability and Growth Through Intelligent Automation

Incumbent businesses in a post-digital transformation world face a challenge: improving performance and keeping operations stable while their supply chains and business models rapidly change. As organizations face aggressive growth priorities amid an uncertain economic landscape, strategically embracing intelligent automation can generate the productivity and speed needed to survive and thrive.

The Scope of Intelligent Automation

Historically, the discussion around automation centered around physical machines (e.g., robots in manufacturing settings or autonomous vehicles), but growing potential exists in continuing to automate operational and administrative workflows.

Automation in the broadest sense refers to the process of setting up machines to perform tasks which would otherwise be completed by contractors or employees. Intelligent automation encompasses software that can be configured to execute repetitive processes across multiple applications. Intelligently automating business operations can take many forms: reconciling purchase orders with analog (even hand-written) invoices; tracking individual components through a supply chain across disparate systems; or filing institutional data with automated metadata capture.
