Automation in ERP, CMS and vendor management. Streamlined inventory and logistics management. Reduction in manual errors and an increase in quality and efficiency. All this and a lot more can happen to heal inefficiency and unproductivity at your Life Sciences enterprise. All it takes is a healthy dose of RPA. A must-read.
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products.
To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support.
At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.
Infrastructure efficiency and effectiveness directly support profit and growth as competition increases in the cloud and managed service provider (xSP) market. Savvy service providers understand that storage choices have a profound impact on not only their profit and growth, but also on their customer experience and retention. They also know that storage challenges in all those areas increase exponentially with scale. Infinidat storage platforms allow service providers to build and scale differentiated, profitable solutions without worrying about storage. Infinidat technology enables unprecedented efficiency, performance, and resiliency, while flexible business models make it easy for service providers to operationalize those platform advantages—including unique co-branding and promotional opportunities as part of the Powered by Infinidat program. Cloud providers worldwide trust their businesses to Infinidat storage. This paper explores a path for service providers to unlock greater sc
Container adoption continues to grow as organizations look to transition from virtual machines to microservices-based architectures, known for their increased efficiency, portability, and scalability.

City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites: consider the local culture and the people, prioritize basic needs and requests, work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments, and consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system. A smart city reflects a number of aspirations: efficiency, resiliency, connectedness, innovation, and su
After evaluating all the options on the market, one company chose Automation Anywhere RPA to start its digital transformation journey and automate its invoice processing, help desk, and internal financial reporting processes. The company achieved its initial goals—and more. It got the first initiative—automating accounts payable—up and running in less than 6 months, and increased the efficiency of the operation by 300%.
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.

As more workloads are shifting to the cloud, cybersecurity professionals remain concerned about security of
data, systems, and services in the cloud. To cope with new security challenges, security teams are forced to reassess their security posture and strategies as traditional security tools are often not suited for the challenges of dynamic, virtual and distributed cloud environments. This technology challenge is only exacerbated by the dramatic shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals.
Ninety-five percent of companies polled in a recent Gartner survey considered increasing efficiency and productivity top priorities for IT departments when determining future budgets. Of those companies, 43 percent viewed increasing efficiency as a high priority, while 42 percent considered increased productivity a high priority.
Many departments—such as sales or service—focus on the company’s profits. And while a smooth-functioning IT department may contribute to the overall efficiency of an organization, it traditionally provides little to no contribution to the bottom line.
