Automation Learning Journeys on Driving Successful, Scaled Change

2020 kicked-off countless automation and digital transformation initiatives, though much of this change was ad-hoc and unplanned. After 18 months of quarantine, organizations are finding that they must adjust their initial band-aid solutions for long-term change. However, after so much disruption, the employee appetite for more digital transformation is low. Change fatigue is real and it's leading to automation tools being discarded for their lack of adoption and ROI. What's needed, now more than ever, is for organizations to take a people-centric, enterprise view of automation and all the components that go with it.

From August 2-5, participate in an event that will give you the learning journeys, case studies and guidance you need to succeed from industry thought leaders, executives and solution providers who have successfully embedded - and maintained - automation into their business processes.

Lead with governance and oversight. Attend IA Week Digital to…

    • Utilize process mining and discovery to plan for enterprise-wide automation
    • Design automation projects to compliment company culture and business needs
    • Re-define organizational expectations and communications about what automation means for employees
    • Hear how to adjust automation pipelines to prioritize scalability and people-centric change
    • Learn from unsuccessful projects in order to pivot quickly and salvage investments

ORGANIZATIONS ARE STRUGGLING TO SUCCESSFULLY UTILIZE AUTOMATION TOOLS

How Do We Know?

  • Almost half of respondents from the SSON Analytics Global Trends Survey reported dissatisfaction with their intelligent automation experience
  • McKinsey states that 70% of transformation projects fail
  • Gartner reports that 87% of senior business leaders say digitalization is a company priority, but only 40% of organizations have brought digital initiatives to scale
  • BCG reports 10%  of AI initiatives are achieving significant financial benefits, which means 90% aren’t
  • Gartner’s 2020 CFO Survey reported that while 66% of respondents anticipated spending more resources towards RPA and other workflow automation tools, 56% expected it to be a difficult goal to achieve in 2021

How Will I Network Virtually?

We know that nothing beats a face to face interaction (it's why are in the conference biz), but since we can't make that happen for you we have set up multiple networking opportunities at our digital event so that you can continue to grow your connections. 

Event Groups

Start the conversation way before the event kicks off by joining our event groups on LinkedIn and MeetUp! Ask our speakers your most pressing questions, check in with peers to see how they are navigating through this time, or just stop by to say hello!

Happy Hours

Winding down is important after a long day of work - even if it is from home. Take part in our virtual happy hours that allow you to get valuable 1 on 1 time with your fellow attendees and sponsors!

Demo Drive

Visit our sponsors virtual booths and pick up all the information you need to make an informed decision about the next technology you will be implementing and also speak with a representative to hear all they have to offer!

Live Chat

Have a question you want answered right away? Use our live chat feature to ask your peers what they think, get expert advice from our speakers, or find out a solution you didn't know existed!

Mobile App

Stay connected even when we aren't "in session." Our mobile app allows you to chat with our attendees all through the event days so that you can stay in touch and contact your new network whenever is most convenient for you!
