    Triggers for automation opportunities

    The following are general parameters that provide guidance on where an automation solution can unlock value.

    • Data intensive activities
    • Manual & repetitive in nature
    • Rule-driven activities
    • Manual activity serves as an electronic trigger to the process
    • Process includes electronic start-points and endpoints
    • Activities involve manual calculations
    • High error rates have been observed
    • Sensitive content
    • Activities are required to be performed out of normal office hours
    • Complex IT landscapes that drive manual work around processes

    Organizational challenges with automation

    Overcoming ‘automation anxiety’

    • Broad perception of robotics
    • Fear and job uncertainty surrounding automation
    • Lack of case studies to show value

    Fragmented impact

    • Specifying value in only a part of a process
    • Understanding future workflow and handovers due to fragmented impact

    Coping with fast pace of transition

    • Automation can process rapidly from proof of concept to implementation
    • 12 weeks or less typical technology implementation

    Defining evolving responsibilities and accountabilities

    • Knowledge gap where roles change
    • Negotiation local legislative variation
    • Defining accountabilities and responsibilities due to fragmented impact

    Achieving global consistency with tailored local adoption

    • Varied change approach due to varied value or impact
    • Achieving consistent global automation change approach
