Continuous Improvement should be more of a cultural shift than a quick fix. BPM is therefore a fundamental principle that businesses should be engaging with. Getting it right will underpin the success of further automation projects - even at a basic level, it prevents businesses from running inefficiently and wastefully.

Whether you’ve innovated your way into first place or just getting started, the rest of the world will keep catching up, technology will change, and the businesses that stay where it is, becomes the businesses that quickly goes backwards. From the birth of the smartphone to the rapid growth and influence of business process management (BPM) robotics, artificial intelligence, blockchain, process mining and others, the world has seen a constant evolution in disruptive innovation; industry 4.0. 

To tackle these challenges and keep companies from facing unprecedented change, BPM Live 2019 is designed for anyone interested in keeping up with changes in the market, competition, and growth, but more specifically, process and operational excellence professionals globally.

From the comfort of your own desk join us and our thought leaders as they share their experiences, lessons and tips.

Day 4 - Thursday, 26 September 2019

Automation, or RPA, is driving significant opportunities for digitization across processes and the enterprise. A common stumbling block, however, is identifying the ideal process candidate. Another problem is that enterprises find it difficult to take the next step to deploy automation enterprise-wide and scale.

Process Discovery makes identification easier by visually depicting manual effort or inefficiency hot spots in a given workflow, and highlighting opportunities to drive improvements. Join this webinar, to hear Omer Hafeez and Deepinder Dhuria talk about how Process Discovery plays a key role in amplifying and accelerating enterprise automation and achieving operational excellence.
