Information Technology Peer Group Meeting 

Enabling Enterprise-Wide Automation 
March 25, 2020 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM 
Learn how automation can transform your organization. 

Automation has been a part of the lexicon for technology and digital transformation leaders for the past few years. Automation has been a primary lever through which organizations have enabled their digital transformations. While benefits of automation has been realized across many different parts of the organization, it is often limited in scope to task automation. The true opportunity for exponential value realization lies with process wide automation that orchestrates tasks around tools, processes and systems. Enabling such a transformation requires an enterprise-wide automation strategy.

The March IT Peer Group meeting of the Consortium will examine how organizations can build towards an enterprise-wide automation strategy. Such a journey does not simply hinge on efficiencies, but truly redefining better ways to deliver value. A systemic approach will allow an organization to scale automation across its value chain, while limiting complexity and using a change management process to ensure the success of the program. Creating realistic expectations and a disciplined approach to automation will empower employees to work better and deliver higher quality, better results and of course greater efficiencies.

Please join your peers from across Wisconsin to find better opportunities to create value through automation. This meeting is a great opportunity for technology leaders and digital transformation leaders interested in learning more about automation to learn, share and network.
