“When doing what you’ve always done is no longer an option.”
It was a gorgeous sunny day in London as the attendees made their way to the Seminar at the Marlin Hotel on Westminster bridge road. Once everyone had registered, grabbed a coffee and taken their seats, the content-rich Seminar was ready to start.
Trevor Moore (Director, iGx Solutions) kicked off the morning by welcoming everyone and sharing his thoughts on why it is essential for businesses to take a process-centric approach.
“We exist to help businesses define and embed its Process-Centric view that enables the adoption of business initiatives and technologies such as Risk & Compliance Management, Workflow & Robotic Process Automation – RPA, Artificial Intelligence – AI.
We achieve this by Analysing the opportunities & defining the Business Benefits, Building an ROI based business case and investment prioritisation framework, to deliver month on month cumulative business benefits.”Trevor Moore, IGX Solutions Ltd. – Introduces the day by explaining ‘Our Belief’
Trevor went on to describe iGx Solutions ‘Thin deep slice’ approach for automation success using the iGrafx platform. (Thin Deep Slice link)
Katharina Hecht (Principal Consultant, iGrafx), followed with her presentation on how to manage compliance complexity, and a brief overview of the iGrafx platform. Katharina shared how using iGrafx as a single platform for all compliance requirements, delivered consistency, enterprise reporting and a simpler more effective compliance management and monitoring solution.
To emphasise the compliance capability of iGrafx, Trevor Moore walked the audience through a recent iGx Solutions case study where the Client had struggled to demonstrate compliance for almost 20 years spending millions with big consultancies. iGx Solutions using the iGrafx platform helped the client achieve compliance within 9 months.
Everyone broke for another greatly needed coffee and chat. It was fantastic to see so many people, connecting with one another in the break; and the donuts and pastries went very quickly!
After the refreshments, Michael White (iGx Solutions Professional Services Director) shared a summary of his recent LinkedIn article “The changing dynamics of the workplace, and how the worker’s landscape is changing,” with his thought-provoking commentary on Millennials and Gen Z. Especially their expectation for automation and AI to be used within organisations to reduce repetitive and mundane tasks.
“Millennials and Gen ‘Z’ are very tech-savvy and see automation (BOTs) as something to help them do their jobs. They want to make an impact and the opportunity to perform more rewarding and valuable tasks.”Michael White, IGX Solutions Ltd.
We heard again from Katharina on, “Applying workflow to operational risk,” and saw her demonstrate the iGrafx application R.O.P.E (Risk & Opportunity Process Excellence). She enlightened the audience on how using iGrafx, you could very quickly implement a risk management culture across an organisation enabling identification, qualification, assessment, mitigation, tracking and reporting all from ROPE.
“Automate risk discovery to ensure consistent reporting, reviews, and approvals across the organization.”Katharina Hecht, iGrafx GmbH
Before the next break, David Brakoniecki (MD of BP3), ran through his brilliantly charismatic and insightful presentation on “Avoiding the pitfalls of automation.” Where he helpfully clarified the ‘types’ of Automation that organisations should consider, how to identify which type suited which opportunity and how to approach an enterprise-wide RPA initiative.
And then…Mmmmm, more coffee and donuts!
When everyone was settled again, Michael White ran through “Measuring Transformation and Change,” where he shared a unique holistic integrated multi-methodology model used for Transformation success, how to define measurements and how using iGrafx you can map interim and goal measurements to KPIs and strategic objectives as part of your Benefits realisation management.
Zahid Anwar (Partner Manager UK, Servicetrace) articulated the uniqueness of their X1 RPA platform with its patented technology and fully managed capability that is disrupting the RPA market, emphasising the importance of Process Centricity to model your organisation. Followed by a great automation demonstration on “Building a BOT,” by Servicetrace’s very own Julian Gross, who actually built a fully operational BOT in 10 minutes!
This segued nicely into Mario Antonio’s (Managing Director, AMS) presentation on A.I. design and implementation. Where Mario explained the types of AI available, their uses and benefits with real-world examples and the approach organisations need to take for reaping the benefits of AI.
Before lunch Ian Hawkins (Editor of PEX Network) who has recently interviewed Trevor and Michael (link to video) hosted a Q&A session with a panel made up from presenters and three seminar attendees, experts in Compliance and Process (David Sayer, Giuliana Bruce & Vinod Bhatia). This was probably the highlight of the day that had everyone interacting and discussing the key questions raised during the presentations. You can watch the video below.
Marlins out did themselves with the spread for lunch, and again everybody was networking and discussing the seminar key messages over sandwiches and coffee.
