Body


We see firms move through different levels of maturity on their Intelligent Automation journey. However, regardless of the level of maturity, many organisations are still in the reactive phase of automation, developing ad hoc projects and tools to begin their journey.


EXPLORATION PHASE
ADOPTION PHASE
EXPANSION PHASE
  • Most enterprises start adopting Automation on case-by-case basis. There is not a holistic automation strategy in place and all tool evaluation are driven by individuals team leaders.
  • One of the main aims of the firm in this phase is become aware of the significance and benefits of using Intelligent Automation technology.
  • Based on long term Automation adoption goals, a centre of excellence (CoE) is set up, a clear automation adoption strategy is defined with an evolution model available for scaling the automation across enterprise.
  • At this stage, the firm can already understand the first benefits, typically in terms of time savings, of using an Intelligent Automation technology.
  • Now the Company has matured the automation strategy and has built process engineering skills. Due to widespread availability of skills, it can employ a hub-and-spoke model for decentralised execution but centralised governance, with automation capabilities built across the enterprise.
  • The enterprise has a comprehensive framework for adopting either rulebased or ML/AI-based automation, ensuring consistency and the alignment of all business-driven virtual workforces.
