Today, companies of all sizes face growing threats from shifting consumer habits, global competitors, and well-funded startups.
Digital transformation, cloud computing, and the dynamic nature of global business have changed business expectations, making

The University of Melbourne deployed Automation Anywhere’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology to reduce manual work and automate a range of administrative processes across student admissions, faculty administration, and supplier tracking.
The deployed software bots now automate the entry of all data and attachments for new admission applications, and the university has slowly expanded its automation capabilities for staff across other faculties.
This has allowed the University of Melbourne to increase the efficiency of critical business processes, boost staff engagement, and improve customer experience for its teachers and student body.
Global corporate enterprise AI practitioners are clearly still dealing with infrastructure issues related to talent and technology. End-to-end processes remain stubbornly carbon-based. Rule-based automation is truly not yet globally scaled across the majority of organizations.
Double the AI
And yet, the AI & Intelligent Automation Network members went from 21%, having deployed Intelligent Enterprise solutions to over 44% in just one year’s time.
Over 4/5 expect to deploy AI in under two years
The stated goal for deployment is just under 83% by the end of 2020. Considering the fact that they’ve essentially got two years, and those ranks have doubled in one year – doubling again in two years is achievable. Incidentally, that same number was only 67% a year ago.
50% expect to be established, globally scaling or refining AI in under two years
Global corporate enterprise is in fact slowly but surely transforming into the intelligent enterprise of tomorrow. Having said that, it will be

The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the
past 5 years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the
same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies,
system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still
rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era.
Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized
as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under
the microscope as well?
Are metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail
rate important in the context of DevOps, where the goal is immediate insight
into whether a given release candidate has an acceptable level of risk? What
other metrics can help us ensure that the steady stream of updates don’t undermine
the very user experience that we’re working so hard to enhance?
To provide the DevOps community an objective perspective
on what quality
Of course, there are cases where free really does mean free. But when it comes to using free quoting tools for your business, you may actually be paying a very high price. Spreadsheets and downloadable templates that cost nothing are fine for many business processes, but when relied on for creating quotes and proposals, they can cost you significantly in lost time and potentially lost sales. Making the switch to a CPQ (configure-price-quote) solution will help you automate time-consuming tasks, minimize errors, and create more compelling and professional sales quotes with just a few clicks.This eBook takes a look at how your current process could be hurting your business, and reasons why a quoting tool may be the best way to stop the pain.
At the end of the day, monitoring is all about finding problems before they cause issues for your users, and managing expectations when problems do crop up. Once critical and basic coverage is handled, start monitoring devices to keep everything tied together. If a switch, router, or hub goes down, or a printer starts having issues, you’ll know before the complaints start rolling in. When you automate recurring processes or tasks, your team can focus on delivering value instead of putting out fires.

IT Transformation is a concept that is not synonymous with digital transformation, but the two concepts are fundamentally linked. A business that transforms its IT infrastructure no longer has to rely on rigid, manual, siloed legacy technologies. Updating IT often yields a boost in IT operational speed, efficiency, scale, and cost effectiveness ? tasks become automated, processes streamlined, and resources freed up. These IT-level improvements fuel a larger-scale digital transformation enabling businesses to out-innovate, out-think, and out-pace its competitors in today’s digital economy.

For many insurers, this accounting process will look familiar:
• Tools and processes vary for different lines of business.
• The needed data is stored in hundreds of files.
• Calculations are performed by multiple, undocumented spreadsheets, with little or
no version control.
• Humans have to step in to help cobble together data from different channels.
• The process of preparing and presenting financial data is not manageable or traceable.
• The path from input data to P&L numbers is largely a black box.
In a simpler time, this patchwork was passable. But change is coming. New regulations
will bring greater complexity to the accounting process for insurers, which will make
semi-manual, legacy processes look like a house of cards and raise doubts about the
validity of the final numbers on the P&L sheet.
Facing combined ratios exceeding 98% in both P&C and Health Insurance1 for
