Since intelligent automation lies along a spectrum, your business likely fits within part of that spectrum. Still, no path to scaling intelligent automation is the same. The solutions are as varied as the markers of your business.
But if the entire organization is not on the same page, intelligent automation won’t be implemented as efficiently as it could be. In the long run, it is far more cost-effective to bring intelligent automation into your business when you’ve applied the framework.
Bring a bigger vision to the table
Intelligent automation refers to the spectrum of automation, which ranges from software robots that mimic human actions, up to the simulation of human intelligence by machines (artificial intelligence). This includes varying technological solutions that have different capabilities and frameworks.
Of over 520 organizations surveyed in a Deloitte survey, 90 percent stated they could see “significant value in intelligent automation.”
Be clear about what you want to do
UiPath recommends a key set of steps and questions to ensuring that intelligent automation is “unlocked” efficiently across the platforms of your business: ensuring a universal mindset surrounding intelligent automation, setting lofty goals, and incorporating the right tools.
Everyone will have different objectives when it comes to implementing intelligent automation solutions. Everyone will reap different benefits and want to implement technologies in different ways. However, this must all fit into an overarching goal that all members of the organization must agree upon.
Be crystal-clear about your goals.
UiPath recommends establishing clear answers to this series of questions.
Everyone should be in agreement with these things:
- Goals and how those goals will help the organization achieve long-range corporate goals
- How can the value of the investment be maximized, and how will progress be assessed
- How high should we aim—are we looking to simply improve the entirety/whole of the business, or are we doing something different?
Apply smart solutions to smart technologies.
It’s important to remain optimistic about the future of intelligent automation within your business and your goals, which could reshape or be redefined over time. Remember, automation is not intended to knock off daily problems, one by one, but move your business toward an overarching goal. If you’re not seeing tangible results over time—it may be that you need someone to help you to understand what those results are.
Adapting, leveraging and growing capabilities, and applying smart solutions will allow you to incorporate the true value of intelligent automation into your business.
You need a partner that understands the variables inherent to scaling and how to shape your own path toward incorporating intelligent automation fluidly and efficiently. If you’d like to discuss the potential for intelligent automation in your business, let’s talk.
