Business Process Automation Summit 2018
Thursday, 22 November 2018
The Forum, Bryanston

Yesterday, process automation simply meant robotics. Today, connectivity, exceptional capability and customer demand have shifted the benchmarks of process automation and the solutions that meet them. Business Process Automation has evolved from an emerging technology to an essential business strategy.

Business Process Automation (BPA) is both programming powerhouse and model of work efficiency. It is the tool that unlocks the potential of key relationships and allows for the organisation to differentiate in a crowded market.

Recognising the value of BPA in the South African space, ITWeb has developed a comprehensive event that delivers what you need to truly harness the potential of BPA.

Our agenda examines all angles, including:

  • What should be automated?
  • What is the real value of robotics?
  • What are the risks?
  • What are the lessons that every business should learn?

Our panel of experts and organisations also provides analysis of solutions that have worked and specific challenges that have been overcome, allowing you to gain realistic, hands-on insight into BPA for your business.
