Intel's factories rely on thousands of PCs for manufacturing automation; keeping these PCs up and running can prevent expensive downtime. To manage these systems, Intel IT is using the Intel vPro platform's hardware- based feature, Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT), to help reduce production downtime caused by PC incidents by 87.5 percent.
Robotic Process Automation was born with the vision of empowering business users to create software bots that could interact with enterprise systems just like humans.
Its benefits include substantial time and cost savings, improved customer satisfaction, increased workforce morale, and the ability to build a competitive advantage over competitors.
But to fully realize all these benefits, it’s important for businesses to select a solution with a robust RPA security architecture that supports core principles, such as least privileges and separation of duties while delivering end-to-end protection for the critical apps and sensitive data involved.
This paper provides an overview of the industry’s highest standard for enterprise-grade security as demonstrated by the market’s leading Digital Workforce platform, Automation Anywhere Enterprise.

With rising demands for shorter lead-times, faster throughput, improved quality and lower costs, automated manufacturing systems have become essential to the success of U.S. manufacturing. Their benefits stretch across numerous industries and production methods; however, their complexity can oftentimes be intimidating to first-time investors. Within this white paper, manufacturers can uncover the information necessary to properly plan and specify the integration of a new automated manufacturing system.
It is not uncommon for SAP system copies, including any post-editing, to take several days to complete. Meanwhile, testing, development and training activities come to a standstill, and the large number of manual tasks in the entire process ties up highly skilled SAP BASIS staff.
Enterprises are looking to automation as a way to accelerate SAP system copies and free up staff. However, this is only one part of the problem: What further complicates the system copy process is the need to safeguard sensitive data and manage huge data volumes while also ensuring that the data used in non-production systems adequately reflects the data in production systems so the quality of development, testing and training activities is not compromised.
This white paper explains how a considerable portion of the SAP system copy process can be automated using the CA Automic Automated System Copy for SAP solution and SNP T-Bone, helping enterprises become more agile.

If there’s one thing that stands out about central government, it’s the appetite for digital transformation. Whether delivering new customer-facing websites to drive better engagement with services or establishing a centre of excellence to accelerate the take-up of robotic process automation (RPA), UK government is embracing opportunities to modernise with new technologies.
But despite the great strides made in the last few years, the UK is slipping backwards in E-Government development terms – down from #1 in 2016 to #4 in 2018, according to the UN E-Government Survey 2018. Some argue this is due to the government having tackled the more straightforward digitisation opportunities and because it is now facing the bigger, more complex systems that need modernising. Our research shows that there are also wider challenges, including uncertainty around the impact of Brexit, budgetary pressures and emerging technologies, coming into play.
So what needs to happen to overcome our challenges

This report outlines the reasons that organizations choose not to upgrade ERP solutions, and
cautions against this approach, by supplying research that illustrates the benefits of keeping
your ERP current and up-to-date.
Automation is only part of the solution, however. While most systems track clear-cut T&E purchases, the reality is that some T&E costs simply can’t be captured by traditional solutions. And they impact your bottom line whether you track them or not. To truly manage all spending, you have to know what to look for and where to look. And this guide is a great place to start.
These are the end times for traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions. Overstatement? Not really—especially for growing businesses like yours. Old-school ERP systems are simply too slow, complex, and inflexible to keep up with today’s business climate.
Think about your existing ERP. Does it support industry-specific best practices, ever-changing regulatory requirements, and emerging technologies such as social media, mobile, cloud, and analytics? If not, you could risk losing ground to your competitors as a result.
Did you ever wonder what enterprise resource planning or ERP is and how it can help your business? Or perhaps you know a little about ERP but you’re not sure if you should opt for an on-premise or cloud solution and what to expect from your final choice.
If you’re a business owner, manager or director in a mid-sized or growing business and you’re confused about ERP, this guide will help you.

With digital transformation reshaping the modern enterprise, applications represent a new class of assets and an important source of differentiation. The ever-more-competitive digital economy requires that your applications be delivered with unprecedented speed, scale, and agility, which is why more and more organizations are turning to the cloud.
This explosive growth of apps hosted in the cloud creates a world of opportunities—and a whole new set of challenges for organizations that must now deploy and manage a vast portfolio of applications in multi-cloud environments. Automation and orchestration systems can help streamline and standardize IT processes across traditional data centers, private clouds, and public clouds. But with rapid innovation come concerns about security and delivering a consistent experience across environments.
he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions.
Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles.
Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime. Download th

Robotic process automation describes the use of technology to automate tasks that are traditionally
done by a human being. The technology itself mimics an end user by simulating user actions such as
navigating within an application or entering data into forms according to a set of rules. RPA is often
used to automate routine administrative tasks that typically require a human being to interact with
multiple systems, but RPA technology is evolving to support the automation of increasingly
sophisticated processes at scale within enterprise architectures rather than on the desktop. Over the
past two years, RPA has been adopted by a number of business process outsourcing (BPO) providers
and a growing number of end-user organizations are now deploying the technology themselves to
create “virtual workforces” of robotic workers.
