Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
There are success stories of businesses that have implemented Business Service Management (BSM) with well-documented, bottom-line results. What do these organizations know that their discouraged counterparts don't?

Much has already been said and written about the infiltration of robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent automation (IA) technologies into the workforce. In truth, it’s taken the corporate world a while to test, trust and commit to automation at work.
To understand how far APAC/ANZ markets have advanced towards acting on these opportunities, the Shared Services and Outsourcing Network (SSON) surveyed the market and found that across the region corporations were forward thinking in building for scale, trusting technology and recognising the need to incorporate robotics into both IT infrastructure and enterprise strategy.
This report explains how enterprises across APAC/ANZ are staying ahead of the global wave of RPA, the most popular solutions they are choosing, who the preferred consultants or 'integrators' are, the challenges, and how the digital workforce is being integrated into the human one.
The University of Melbourne deployed Automation Anywhere’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology to reduce manual work and automate a range of administrative processes across student admissions, faculty administration, and supplier tracking. The deployed software bots now automate the entry of all data and attachments for new admission applications, and the university has slowly expanded its automation capabilities for staff across other faculties. This has allowed the University of Melbourne to increase the efficiency of critical business processes, boost staff engagement, and improve customer experience for its teachers and student body.

The Augmented Human Enterprise is an independent academic study into the reality and future of automation and AI technologies in the workplace.
The future impact of automation and AI on businesses and the people working within them is under constant debate. Advocates hail a future utopia, detractors foresee our dystopian demise. But what's the reality today? A team of academics at Goldsmiths, University of London set out to investigate the real-life impact of automation on work and found that augmented workplaces–those with collaboration between human and machines–score 33% higher on factors deemed to make a workplace more human.
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.
Automation Anywhere’s flagship product is Automation Anywhere Enterprise – a RPA platform offering a variety of tools to help organisations develop, operate and manage RPA bots that automate data entry, data gathering and other repetitive, routine tasks usually carried out as part of high-volume, repetitive work (for example, service fulfilment work in call centres, shared-service centres, and back-office processing environments). Automation Anywhere Enterprise bots can add value both in unattended (server-based, lights-out operation) and attended (desktop-based, interactive) deployment configurations.
In this report, MWD Advisors digs deeper into the features and capabilities of Automation Anywhere’s product portfolio, analysing its fast-growth trajectory and highlighting large-scale implementations.
RPA platforms represent a hyper growth market, with enterprises investing in new RPA platforms for process and task automation to achieve greater operating efficiency and agility, while allowing the human workforce to focus on more strategic and higher priority projects and tasks. Intelligent process automation (IPA) is in an early phase of its evolution and represents the next frontier for RPA vendors. This Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM) is a comprehensive evaluation to help enterprise IT and business leaders, including chief information officers (CIOs), enterprise and process architects, IT directors, line-of-business (LOB) leaders and process owners, and digital transformation leaders select an RPA platform that is well suited to their specific requirements.
The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) has shown incredible promise across a wide range of industries. But the benefits of automation have mostly occurred through Robotic Process Automation (RPA), which automates repetitive, mundane tasks – liberating workers to focus on higher-level business initiatives that only humans are capable of providing. After successful trials in most of the world’s largest organizations, automation and AI are poised to transform the global workplace. Making Work Human: 5 Challenges, research by Goldsmiths, University of London, supported by Automation Anywhere, seeks to uncover the main obstacles that organizations must now overcome in order to scale automation and AI, and recognize the true potential of these ground-breaking technologies.
