Introducing "Automation Expose," a New Series to Showcase Automation by Practitioners For Practioners - March 17

By DAVID Jenness posted Wed March 09, 2022 02:59 PM


There is both an Art and a Science to Automation. The Art comes through in the creativity and imagination of the design team and the Science is evident in the steps taken to build, test and deploy interconnected software components.  When Automation users get together, the conversation often revolves around this confluence of Art and Science and it’s fascinating to hear how complex deployments came to be.

That’s exactly the premise of a new series dreamed up by IBM’s North American User Groups, called “Automation Expose.”  The leaders of the New England, Midwest, Public Sector, and Metropolitan New York User Groups met in January 2022 and everyone agreed that what their members could use most is a good old fashioned Solution Showcase, where real Automation practitioner share what they built and how they built it, with an emphasis on all the gory details. They want to understand the thinking behind the design, the obstacles encountered along the way, and the steps taken to assure success.

The premiere Automation Expose episode debuts Thursday, March 17 at 11 AM ET with a close look at the Claims Processing solution built for the U.S. Veteran’s Benefit Administration. This solution weaves together RPA, workflow, AI-document processing, capture, among other technologies to create a solution that vastly improves the service to U.S. veterans and their families.  Click here to RSVP and attend.

Automation Expose will be a monthly series, appearing on the third Thursday of every month, always at 11 AM ET, which enables users from Europe, the Mideast and the Americas to conveniently attend.
