3:10 pm - 3:35 pm Beyond the low hanging automation fruit - How to scale automation success?
Daniel Henneke - Automation Discovery Lead, Swisscom

• In the early phase of an automation program,
 automation ideas are usually abundant as
 automation is rather new and outcomes are
 uncertain
• Once a program has lifted of successfully, the
 appetite for more kicks in and the question
 of how and where to look for more automation
 opportunities arises rapidly
• Hence, a structured way to identify, qualify and
 prioritize automation opportunities is inevitable
 to rise to the increasing automation expectations
