Overview

Corporations stuck with IT infrastructure that pre-dates the digital ‘big bang’ won’t be able to stay relevant - or compete with their digital and legacy-free rivals - for much longer. Vast quantities of data need to be crunched. Failure to modernize processes and systems in line with these trends will drive previously successful businesses to try to catch up with the competitors that overtake them. Deploying low-code app platforms and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and other advanced technologies will help CIOs deliver their companies’ digital strategies more quickly.

This FT-Appian executive breakfast briefing takes a macro and a micro look at corporate digital transformation. We’ll examine the future of automation in the workplace and how it is viewed and experienced by the customer, and we’ll look at how deploying low-code platforms and other advanced technologies can help accelerate the transition, and do so without all the early-days upheaval that digital transformation efforts often required.

    MACRO PANEL: The Future of Automation

    The transition towards new relationships between people and advanced technologies in the workplace and on the workforce - and the automation this brings with it - is well underway. Software bots are being deployed to undertake high-volume, repeatable admin tasks - freeing-up their human counterparts for more creative endeavors. Software bots are also interacting more with customers, learning from large amounts of data in order to further personalize the encounter. The evolving relationship between humans and machines isn’t going to be plain sailing, however. While automation will reduce costs and improve productivity, it also raises questions over rights, liability issues and trust. This panel will look at what companies are doing to get the balance right.

    - Collaboration: humans and advanced technologies working together
    - Ethics; labor law implications; liability issues; consumer trust
    - Opportunities to create new value
