What is Process Automation?
Many documented processes describe the manual transfer of information between systems or the input and copy of data due to missing technology. Process Automation reduces this manual work by automating the process steps and building the missing interfaces between systems that have been filled up by the human workforce.
Why do we want to automate processes?
Not because everybody is doing so.
The motivation for Process Automation.
Tool-based process automation is the key to time- and cost-savings as well as quality improvements. It guarantees up to date systems at any time and enables businesses to remodel their processes according to their requirements. Process Automation empowers employees to maximize their added value by eliminating repetitive and mundane tasks.
We can ensure you to make the right choice between all available technologies in the market.
DPA, RPA, IPA or AI ?
As process automation is gaining relevance and becoming a strategic priority, it is essential to understand the different technologies, their specific functionalities, costs, and benefits. Technologies like DPA, RPA, IPA, and AI lead the way towards process automation, although their significance is still unclear to many. We advise you on the right choice of technology for the most significant gains and accompany you for sustainable implementation.
The evolution of BPM (Business Process Management) that focuses on optimizing business processes for a more efficient and lean execution lead to the DPA (Digital Process Automation) as we know it today.
DPA is at first the digitization and then the automation of your business processes for a more customer–centric execution. The tool-based automation enables up to date information in the systems and immediate information transfer between employees and software.
Automation without any changes in the legacy systems has been possible latest since the introduction of RPA (Robotic Process Automation). It is describing the automation of any rule-based process with digitally readable input by so–called software-robots that mimic human interaction with the systems. With RPA the employees are freed up of repetitive and mundane “robot” work and can focus on value-adding tasks for the company.
AI (Artificial Intelligence) refers to the ability of computer systems to act according to the human mind and perform cognitive tasks. This includes possibilities for perception as well as the ability to learn and thus to find solutions to problems independently. Adding AI to processes enables faster execution with more precise results that increases the added value for a company.
Combining RPA (Robotic Process Automation) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) software robots not only mimic human interactions with the systems but also learn how to execute them better and make decisions. This is the essence of IPA (Intelligent Process Automation). IPA augmented with deep learning, and cognitive technology opens boundaries of process automation.
