Evolutionary thinking on the agenda at IA Nordics
3rd Annual Intelligent Automation returns, this time in Copenhagen, Denmark
The 3rd Annual Intelligent Automation Nordics finds itself in Copenhagen, Denmark March 18-20 and features an agenda that showcases evolutionary thinking about the subject at hand.
WHAT DID HAPPEN?
Following a keynote by the CEO of the Danish Chamber of Commerce, the agenda dives right in on a crystal clear case study. Whether or not the math is fuzzy on the $60 investment which resulted in €5M savings, it’s clear that Telia was tremendously successful with change management, cross-departmental collaboration and providing a pathway to taking the next step.

WHAT DIDN’T HAPPEN?
An extremely practical sounding panel immediately follows asking ‘did you get what you expected out of IA for your enterprise? This is clearly a question that nearly every corporate enterprise practitioner is asking in Q1, 2019. Yes, we’ve been through PoC, yes, we’ve got processes automated. But no, we’re not where we expected. There is much work to be done to systemize intelligent automation within the enterprise to ensure that the next step into cognitive automation can occur.

- Is RPA developing at the pace you expect it to within your organisation and how you are attempting to overcome your main obstacle?
- To what extent will RaaS/AaaS, BPO/BPM, in house capabilities and new entrants impact the future of RPA?
- What more do you want from the technology to meet your expectations?

WHAT CAN HAPPEN?
One of the great features of the IA Nordics program is a panel that turns the top-level buy-in conversation on it’s head…by featuring folks at the top sharing how and why they buy-in. The executives on the panel do come at it from a ‘converted’ perspective, but the key question of what needs to be presented to top-level management to receive that buy-in is on the docket:
What gets us bought in? (C-Level Panel Discussion)
- Why do you believe intelligent automation is a pre-requisite of business strategy?
- What do you expect to be presented before investing in – and what makes a successful – intelligent automation programme?
- What comes next: what succeeds an intelligent automation strategy and its application?

WHAT HAS HAPPENED AT SCALE?
Another key case study is an at-scale use case presented by Nordea that covers challenges, learning’s, processes and the journey itself. The session promises that ‘at-scale’ means 5 markets and over 300 processes, which sounds at least above average. This session alone might be worth the trip itself.
