IBM Automation has created a special full-day event to offer a complete picture of the state of the Digital Workplace and offer a clear vision of the role of Automation – where it is today and where it’s headed tomorrow.

This free event will provide access to today’s leading thinkers on Automation, as well as practitioners from a variety of industries. It offers a comprehensive tour through the tools and solutions that make up intelligent automation, including robotic process automation, artificial intelligence, decision management, document capture, content services, and intelligent workflow.

Attendees will learn how companies are using Automation to improve customer service, employee engagement, grow revenue and open new business opportunities. Client-led panels, and presentations will offer authentic customer experiences from users in financial services, public sector, healthcare, telecom, retail and other industries.

Over the years, Automation practitioners have developed strategies and best practices for designing, deploying and running Automation projects. At Automation 2019, attendees will have opportunities to learn from and interact with experts. IBM Business Partners will showcase custom solutions built for specific industry use cases and outcomes.

Most importantly, Automation 2019 is a place to experience Automation. Attendees will have a chance to roll up their sleeves and build a software robot, configure a machine learning capture system, model a business process, create and edit rules, or set up a content sharing application. There will even be hands-on experience where you can run an application from beginning to end to understand how users can work smarter and more effectively assisted by Automation.

Today’s Digital Business Automation is a continuation of the tradition of innovation that reaches as far back as the Roman aqueducts. The new generation of Automation, infused with analytics and artificial intelligence, offers today’s workers new tools that make their jobs more effective, satisfying, and meaningful. Join us to find out how.
