Traditionally, workflows have been way a to present simple information in an organized and logical manner. They are very helpful in communicating the structure of a complex system or an organizational hierarchy. However, that is all they do; statically display visual information to another person. One of the main goals when originally developing the SpiceCSM Process Workflows was to be able to present complex and dynamic information. We wanted to give users with a specific skill set the ability to convey their knowledge to a large number of less skilled users in a structured, dynamic and logical way. Additionally, we needed the ability to import data into the process so that the less skilled user did not have to use a separate system to look up information. Those original requirements gave the process workflows an enormous amount of power and flexibility. As the years passed, we saw the way processes were being used had evolved in ways we had never imagined when originally designing the SpiceCSM Process Workflows.
When looking for a process automation solution it is easy to get caught up in the hype around Robotic Process Automation (RPA). But when you really examine the options available it is clear that standard RPA solutions don't even come close to competing with Intelligent Robotic Process Automation (iRPA).
What are you going to do today to make a difference? In your life? Personal, Professional, Philanthropic? Seriously, what are you going to do? What is the one thing that you will do today that will make everything else irrelevant? Irrelevant is a strong word BUT it gets to the heart of achieving what's really important? It helps you eliminate or ease all of the other miscellaneous, less important tasks that tend to monopolize our time, and ultimately hold us back from achieving our goals."
Everybody loves a clean start. When current systems aren't working and pressures are building, it's tempting to want to trash everything and start over fresh. But what is the cost? Time, Innovation and Lost Opportunity.
Are you confused by all the hype around Robotic Process Automation? Do you have nightmares of Alexa taking over your workplace and having to slowly shut her down like Hal from 2001: A Space Odyssey? Yet, according to Harvard Business Review ““A recent survey indicates that about half of the S&P 500 will be replaced over the next 10 years, a generational change that we call “disruptive change.”” Businesses are scrambling to re-invent themselves or face the threat of “uberization” of their respective industries. As you seek out a way to adopt technologies that will enable you to transform your business like Robotic Process Automation, consider 3 guiding principles to align your endeavors for success.
