Data, Analytics & Intelligent Automation Summit

July 13, 2021

In this Data, Analytics, & Intelligent Automation summit day, we will explore the evolution of RPA from delivering tactical, point solutions to the promise of strategic, enterprise-wide, hyper-automation. We will discuss the ins and outs of how to deliver the most impactful RPA by optimizing your business processes before automating them — and also cover where RPA is headed, including the infusion of AI. We will look at the role of data analytics and how it has transformed and empowered business decision making. We will talk about how the world has come to rely on data and data analytics to generate better and more informed outcomes for all its constituents. We will learn about case studies from manufacturing, healthcare, finance, and retail that deal with AI applications such as automating patient health alerts and recommendations, automating manufacturing processes, data-driven, personalized risk underwriting, retail consumer buying pattern prediction, fraudulent insurance claim identification, and more.
