Digital Operations Through AI-Driven Automation
  • Brian Briggs - Global Head of Presales, WorkFusion

The lifespan of established companies is declining while born-digital companies take market share and create new markets. Why is this? It isn’t just that they’re small and agile.

Leading enterprises in every industry are using AI-driven process automation to digitize their back and middle operations to provide the same speed, accuracy and efficiency of service delivery as born-digital companies. In this presentation, you will learn:

  • The 5 operational problems that limit growth and compromise customer service

When we get past the conversation about when AR/VR will hit critical mass, a strangely uncomfortable question arises: is your business actually ready for the revolution? What’s your strategy and how will you demonstrate ROI?

The Digital Reality Maturity Model is a framework that corporations can use to assess where they are on the readiness scale and inform pragmatic decisions to get started, scale over time, and make the virtual a reality.
