Main Conference Day Two: Thursday, December 5, 2019

Thursday, December 5th, 2019


Digital labor technologies like automation and machine learning are transforming the way we work, but in many ways, we are still in the early stages of disruption, with solution scalability remaining a constantly moving target. Moving from the innovation lab to truly global scale will lead us to redefine the nature of business, from our changing relationship working with intelligent machines, to the rapid production and cultivation of new value streams for end users and customers. The enabler of this digital future will be our ability to adapt and scale intelligent automation across the enterprise and to empower the innovators and change agents that will get us there.

In this session, our Keynote speaker’s topics of discussion will include, yet will not be limited to:
  • Key capabilities to invest in, including RPA, Conversational AI, Machine Learning, API Management tools, Process Mining, Data Analytics, and Workflow Orchestration
  • How to rapidly evolve projects from the Pilot phase to Enterprise Scale
  • The importance of adaptive delivery models, commercial models, and incentive models, and the operational agility they enable
  • Achieving ROI by attacking the end-to-end process with digital design thinking
