Automation Reaction: GAI tool for improving personal productivity put to the test webinar

When:  Nov 18, 2021 from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM (ET)

What if you could reset your digital transformation strategy for the future -- a future where digital twins work with, and on behalf of, human employees to fundamentally improve how work gets done? 

Enter IBM Watson Orchestrate (WO): an interactive AI capability designed to put intelligent automation at the fingertips of businesspeople to improve productivity and business outcomes -- in ways that other assistive technologies can't (e.g., chatbots or VDAs). 

Join us live, on November 18, for a special episode in this series. Jon Lester, Director of Service Delivery Transformation and Automation for IBM Human Resources, shares his actual experience using WO to transform how work gets done across IBM's six global HR delivery centers. Specifically, Jon shows how WO is being used to help IBM HR professionals shift their balance of work from operational to strategic in the complex job promotions process. Spoiler: WO does everything up to the point of deciding who gets promoted. It's like having a skilled junior hire. 

First announced at Think 2021, IBM Watson Orchestrate uses patented technology from IBM Research that has the potential to transform the way work gets done, not to mention the way people interact with Automation.
If you've been following the WO story, you'll see it applied in real life. If WO is new to you, you're just in time to see the future of end-to-end process automation for digital transformation -- whether you work in HR, Sales, Services, Finance, etc.
