Modern Automation for Business Resilience
The global COVID-19 crisis has laid bare the challenges with the structures and features of global supply chains and has highlighted the shortcomings within many organizations' own internal working environments and business processes. Listen in as Neil Ward-Dutton, IDC VP of AI and Intelligent Process Automation, and Michael Beckley, Appian Founder and CTO, discuss how low-code automation is helping organizations to be more resilient to both unpredictable environments and financial stresses.
Rise of the Digital Human
We’re going through a radical restructuring of humanity. And it’s not just business and commerce and finance and technology. It’s actually a re-wiring of who we are as humans. Soon, not only will everyone on the planet be connected digitally, but they can be raised out of poverty through digital inclusion which is a low-cost way of reaching everybody—who was unreachable before—through the network and through the digital platform. So says Fintech commentator and best-selling author Chris Skinner in our latest Digital Masters podcast.
