HfS Blueprint Report: Intelligent Automation 2016

Oct 12, 2016 Tom Reuner

WHAT THIS BLUEPRINT REPORT COVERS

In the 2016 Intelligent Automation Blueprint we cover the innovation in service delivery with a focus on RPA, Cognitive Computing, AI and Autonomics. The aim is to drive a more holistic understanding of automation, and to understand how providers are driving IA across the boundaries of traditional business units to advance toward the As-a-Service Economy.

 

KEY MARKET DYNAMICS

  • Lack of definitions and common language: Even though nothing is defined, the common denominator (and at the same time, the lever for disruption) is the de-coupling of service delivery from labor arbitrage
  • Exponential growth is setting in below the radar: Despite a lack of stakeholder management and communication, the scale in deployments is increasing strongly
  • Disruption is nigh: the Disruption will happen not just in the long-term future or in back-office or offshore activities. Instead, the disruption will encompass the entirety of knowledge work.
  • Broad AI capabilities are coming to the fore: HfS is seeing the emergence of the notion of Virtual Agents that are underpinned by broad automation capabilities
