The FUTURE is in AUTOMATION This ar�cle wasn’t wri�en by a Tech Bot, but it could well have been. That, along with thousands of other use cases, is why automa�on will be big in the years to come. Over the course of last two years, all major tech conferences had discussion on innova�on in ar�ficial intelligence, machine learning, robo�cs or other automated solu�ons. In the pandemic, automa�on became one of the top 3 subjects of discussions in virtual tech events. Each of these discussions gives me a convic�on that knowledge is fast evolving and adop�on con�nues to accelerate. While the technology levers are more obvious, I have always been fascinated by the psychological triggers of automa�on across manufacturing and services. The Psychology of Automa�on Independent vs Interac�ve A Harvard Business Review study suggests that each job Work that can be carried out independently are more should be deconstructed into smaller tasks before we automatable than work which requires collabora�on iden�fy specific tasks for automa�on.

They are highly efficient with serving in a corporate cafeteria). repe��ve work, and excellent at performing jobs with simple decision rules. Variable work with limited 24

varia�on is an excellent case for AI interven�on. But, highly variable work is less automatable. Automa�on is omni-present in mul�ple sectors. The two that I come across most are the manufacturing and services. Industry Automa�on Industries are under constant pressure – to improve product quality, boost factory efficiency, stay compe��ve, enhance safety, be secure , and remain profitable. Con�nuing to drive opera�onal efficiencies through tradi�onal cost-cu�ng measures now provides only marginal gains. Indus- try 4.0 is about the significant transforma�on taking place in the way goods are produced and delivered – moving toward industrial automa�on and the flexible factory. To stay compe��ve, factories and warehouses must leverage the industrial inter- net of things and digitaliza�on to become much more agile and efficient. Industry 4.0 will help make smart machines smarter, factories more efficient, processes less wasteful, produc�on lines more flexible and produc�vity higher. Built on the founda�on of smart, secure, wireless connec�vity there are opportuni�es to extend machine life through predic�ve maintenance, support rapid material handling, monitor every detail of the shop floor, and leverage collabora�ve robots simultaneously with mobile communica�on. This will help factories realize their goal of becoming a fully automated factory. Services Automa�on Customer experience is the anchor of strategic and compe��ve advantage of many service-oriented industries. Companies are seriously inves�ng to make their IT processes simple. It is not the service itself, but the way it is experienced that creates a differen�a�on in the customers’ minds. We have just launched an automated service issue resolu�on engine that’s contact less, secure AI-enabled and con�nuously learning. It has the capability to capture, analyze, respond and resolve service issues at faster �me, lower cost and global scale. Automa�on also allows high customisa�on or personalisa�on for an enterprise or a customer - o�en in dynamic real-�me – a service that is engineered for all. Workplace-automa�on is turning mainstream. Now what? Do we all lose our jobs? Can we get robots to work for us while we stay home and snooze? Between those extremes, people are using automa�on at work and life. They’re discovering its flywheel effects in produc�vity, crea�vity, efficiency and convenience. The technology is taking drudgery off the table and freeing up brain power for higher-level tasks. Ar�ficial intelligence, deep learning, machine learning — whatever you’re doing, if you don’t understand it — learn it,” says Mark Cuban, the tech entrepreneur and reality TV star. “Otherwise you’re going to be a dinosaur within three years.” Rajnish Tripathi is the CEO of AITL and Execu�ve Vice President of He drives revenue and growth for ICT projects, repairs and services.

For managing and governing the company, what we need good strategic planning, organiza�on, and ul�mately the execu�on of the plan. But due to the Covid-19 pandemic, everything abruptly changed. A new working pa�ern has been introduced, “WFH” aka Work from Home. And now many of the big companies are endeavoring to implement this on a regu- lar. Technology leaders are imposed, to adapt the standard procedure for RPA and hyper-automa�on alterna�ves to tradi- �onal System Integra�on as the pandemic escalated the digital demands. System Integra�on existed so far in the market. It is considered an extravagant technique to bring all the systems together and get them to work together. Se�ng up the whole system required specialized engineers with broad sets of skills. Due to high obscurity, companies need to find discerning methods through which they can operate, control and build the competency to survive in the market. For this dredging the right opera�on technique to increase the efficiency, with mini- mum cost, rapid �me and scalability, Robo�c Process Automa�on act as significant. A crucial ques�on emerges here, What would be learning curve ? In the post pandemic market only visionary businesses thrive ,which can predict the market curve and adapt themselves to the changes , I was intrigued when I found the reasons for the downfall of the gaints like Nokia, surprisingly it was not due to the reluctance for the change or arrogance of being a gaint on their field but it was they could not forgo the no�on of changing the business model which was very successful at that point of �me and adapt to a newer model which was more of an experiment which bring us placing our bets in the era of post pandemic ,my bet being hyper-au- toma�on. Use of RPA to adapt the ‘new normal’ a�er covid-19 1. Increase responsiveness turbulent changes RPA system s�mulates people to stay open and adapt to new changes of doing things along with flexibility. Organiza�ons are perpetually looking for process improvement called as process-driven are currently most successful in the market. Example- Amazon, Uber. Bots are more efficient and effec�ve in terms of offering training when economic success depends on how fast and how people acclima�zed to the new condi�on. 2. Provide opportunity in the direc�on of digi�za�on Organiza�ons tend to adopt RPA will be based on taking commi�ed ac�on toward digi�za�on. Scaling automa�on at the enterprise level will enhance the pace of digital development and leveraging strategic thought in the long run. According to Mc Kinsey's research, half of the top economic performers rely en�rely on digital offerings. 26% of digital incumbent acquired the new digital business in long term profitability, with no short-term gain. 32

3. Data Security Maintaining social distance has increased the use of online communica�on via the available means, mainly, social network- ing apps. So, this required addi�onal security breaches compared to the �me before the pandemic. RPA ul�mately reduces cybersecurity risk as it enables the enforcement of more effec�ve cyber opera�ons. Whenever compliance a�acks are detected, 4. Promo�ng remote workforce Work from home has started as a necessity and one of the prominent precau�ons in Covid-19. People were quite happy at the beginning, as it tends to increase flexibility and increased produc�vity. RPA leverage to ensure a streamlined process, and hence higher produc�vity as well as strong connectedness among the employees despite physical distancing. Why Hyper automa�on is my bet post covid-19? Hyper Automa�on can be considered as ‘boon’ as it makes a significant contribu�on to minimizing the business disrup�on due to covid-19 related restric�ons. To ensure popula�on health, a remote working shi� was perhaps the most applied mea- sure among the precau�on. We can’t deny that covid-19 will have a profound impact on most of the social and economic life. When the covid-19 effect starts to diminish and consequently, when we expect to get back ‘New normal’. This will be going to be very different from our lives before the pandemic. Definitely, there will be a complex change in the working environ- ment, a new way of serving the customers, and working with suppliers. Many lo�y organiza�ons are suffering due to high maintenance costs and opera�onal impact-related re-engineering appall- ingly integrated old-IT. Instead of re-engineering, the organiza�on could opt for a new business model or approaches; An emerging technology Hyper automa�on streamline enterprise opera�on and reduce cost. Automa�on set off a digital workforce pla�orm for the establishment of business resilience. With Hyper automa�on, so�ware users build a so�ware robot or bot which can learn, imitate, and can execute business opera�ons unlike RPA ,hyper automa�on integrates Deep Learning and neural network models which can mimic human behavior with an astounding accuracy ,our team has deployed couple of them in North America Conclusion According to a recent brain survey, it is es�mated that more than 84% of the organiza�ons will adopt RPA in their business opera�on a�er the post-covid-19 pandemic. Global Robo�cs Automa�on so�ware revenue will reach $ 1.89 billion in 2021, with a growth of 19.5% from 2020. A�er covid-19, RPA will help from the first step of the automa�on journey, including pilot phasing. Hyper automa�on will deliver automa�on in a frac�on of the �me mimicking the human response. It can automa�cally start working, scale on-de- mand, and keep working at 100% capacity non-stop. Venugopal Vemula CEO Veloxtech Solu�ons
