Is there something your business needs to be doing today which you can’t do because it requires significant investment in headcount?
It could be something from a customer experience point of view, an organisational standpoint or even a compliance aspect that you need to be doing but it’s out of reach because you can’t bring on the headcount or sustain the large investment.
Now, tell me, what’s the cost to your business of not doing that activity? What’s the impact of you not doing something that needs to be done in the business?
Last Friday I attended the pwc HeraldTalks November event – The Tech Revolution. As a takeaways I grabbed three novel ideas and questions that can help businesses take a different view on how to apply technology to their operating models or how to start thinking about digital transformation from a new perspective.
Automation is undoubtedly on the agenda of most executives in New Zealand. Enabled by a wider ecosystem of smart technologies, Intelligent Process Automation is the destination making AI one of the hottest words of 2019.
In September I travelled to America to attend the San Francisco Ai Summit – self-proclaimed the world’s largest AI event for business. At the event I joined several thousand attendees to hear from over 200 speakers and engage with over 200 exhibitors.
The aim was to bring back key learning to be translated into practical insights to share and help move New Zealand businesses forward in the adoption and application of smart technologies – something key to Quanton’s drive.
When you look at RPA or content intelligence, there are so many organisations doing it wrong, making huge mistakes and giving Robotic Process Automation and content intelligence a bad name. Why? In so many cases it comes down to one simple thing: They’ve forgotten the people part of the equation.
Eight technology enablers exist, which when holistically present in a technology mix will provide business leaders with the opportunity to drive short-term business benefit while creating a platform for sustainable digital transformation.
Quanton is excited to officially announce our partnership with ABBYY to provide New Zealand businesses Content Intelligence in Process Automation.
The new partnership will help New Zealand businesses gain the benefits of Optical Character Recognition, Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP), which when combined with Robotic Process Automation, will extend the potential breadth and depth of automation and digitally transform operating models.
Last week I attended DX2019 as a sponsor and speaker. My own talk focused on how businesses can couple short-term benefit with long-term transformation and how Robotic Process Automation can be scaled with Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning, a topic which is captured in a white paper by ABBYY, New Technologies Give Rise to Content Intelligence. The paper focuses on how content intelligence will power the future of Robotic Process Automation.
Throughout the day I made a point to drop in on talks from several other amazing people including Roxanne Salton (Mercury Energy), Tom Cochran (Former Digital Leader – Obama Administration) and Luke Longney (Vodafone NZ).
Reflecting on their talks, I wanted to share the lessons I gleaned from these speakers, that they have learned from their own digital transformation journeys.
Robots to the fore – Key insights for New Zealand Business into RPA in 2019
From making artificial intelligence a business reality to closer ties to human colleagues, robotic process automation is gearing up for a strong 2019
Humans will be robots will be forging stronger ties this year as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) move further into the Kiwi business landscape. As the year firmly gets underway, Garry Green, Managing Director for Quanton shares what he believes will be the four biggest trends for Process Automation this year.
On September 27th, 2018 Quanton hosted our inaugural DX Seminar. One of the exciting speakers was Asa Cox who discussed the very exciting topic of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence.
Following the recent opinion piece on RPA as a foundation for AI by Garry Green we wanted to continue to address the conversation around RPA and AI with three ways AI and RPA will extend the reach of automation in our organisation.
