he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions. Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles. Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime.

In terms of reconciliations, we tend to spend most of our time simply gathering data before we can even begin to think about reconciling it. Once the data is finally in the right format, the majority of our time is then spent manually going through the matching process, rather than spending that time focused on the areas that are most critical to us, as can be seen in the diagram on the right.

The primary objective of any financial transformation project is to achieve process improvements by improving the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of financial information, ultimately enhancing shareholder value. Take the example of the close process. It would be incredibly simple to shorten the process by adding more people, however, is this an efficient way to reduce the number of days to close? On the right, the Hackett Group displays that best in class companies actually can be seen closing in fewer days, with greater automation and significant lower audit fees, emphasizing the idea that you really can do more with less.

Customer service organizations are struggling to react to the pace of innovation and the explosion of channels and devices. To get ahead of these challenges, AD&D pros must deeply invest in automation — automated answers, automated conversations, automated agent guidance, and automated end-to-end processes. They must also invest in intelligence to ensure automated technologies evolve and learn from prior interactions over time. Automation and intelligence quell the headcount increases. They will free agents from working on low-value or repetitive tasks, as they will only have to address highly complex customer scenarios or exceptions to standard operations. This also enables them to focus on building connections with customers to garner their satisfaction and loyalty.

The age of digital transformation is firmly here, and with it comes a seismic shift in how businesses must operate if they intend to stay relevant and profitable. Though the role of process in digital transformation is often over-hyped, in truth, it remains a critical element in the fight to win, serve, and retain customers. In this digital age, businesses must holistically reframe their investment in process automation. In short, a compelling vision for process excellence must underpin this digital transformation, thereby transforming customerfacing processes and digitizing operational processes. The change is so profound that Forrester has renamed the category from business process management (BPM) to digital process automation (DPA). This shift, while continuing to drive down costs and drive up employee productivity, makes customer experience and digital transformation the primary success factors. This represents a powerful and necessary change of focus. In July 2017, IBM commission

Digital transformation will fail without a commitment to automation - what AHEAD refers to as Relentless Automation. With the advent of public cloud and all of its promise, along with the ripple effect from the DevOps mantra of “automate everywhere”, technology teams must spin up new infrastructure, maintain configurations, and set up and tear down environments much faster than ever before. Of course, no one should automate for the sake of automating, or to simply be ahead of the curve. But while not every activity warrants automation - whether due to the complexity and nuance of the task, or its infrequent occurrence - Relentless Automation means identifying those tasks and processes where the benefits of automation outweigh both its upfront and recurring costs. Thankfully, the business benefits of standardizing and automating IT work are easy to spot: > Freeing up staff for higher value work > Reduction in errors and process variability > More auditability and accountability, helping

Humans excel at tasks that require creativity, the opportunity to respond to the unexpected, and general attentiveness to the surrounding environment. Technology and machines, on the other hand, are built to process a lot of information quickly without getting bored; technology reliably completes the task it is assigned without deviation. The most powerful approach to adding technology to a team takes the strengths of both humans and technology into account and from that, creates a superior, collaborative system. For example, reporting software such as Spreadsheet Server and Atlas for Dynamics AX/365 by Global Software, Inc. both serve as machine learning intelligence that uses automation to reduce errors, while at the same time preserving humans’ ability to create reports and outcomes from the data the way they need to see it.
