    A guide to Intelligent Process Automation

    May 17th, 2023

    Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) is a modern approach to organizational digital transformation. Businesses are increasingly adopting IPA solutions that integrate digital employees with Artificial Intelligence technologies to save time and money while focusing on more critical business tasks. IPA technologies include Business Process Modelling, Process & Task Mining, Robotic Process Automation, as well as machine learning and AI components.

    Intelligent Automation platforms can offer excellent results for an organization by helping to eliminate repetitive, monotonous, and ordinary jobs, resulting in a dramatically improved customer experience. ​

    Despite widespread awareness of new technology solutions, many organizations remain uncertain about how to transition their operations to automated platforms, and, more crucially, whether such a need exists.​

    This guide will explore why Intelligent Automation is needed in organizations and how to get started. ​​

    Discover Sensible Machine Learning: An Introduction to Intelligent Automated Forecasting

    April 13th, 2023

    What is Sensible Machine learning? I suppose we can’t really start talking about what SensibleML is and how awesome it is, without understanding, at least to an extent, the problem it is trying to solve for.

    What is the problem? Have you ever wanted to know what the demand for your product will be in 3 months’ time? Or maybe even a year? Or perhaps ever wondered whether you need to expand your manufacturing line or prioritise certain services within your business today to maximize profits tomorrow?

    The technical term given for such problems is Time Series Forecasting and that is exactly why SensibleML was developed.

    Now that we have an idea of what the problem is. Let us get back to the question at hand. The short answer is, Sensible Machine Learning is a powerful tool for analysing and making predictions from time series data. By developing accurate and robust models, SensibleML can help us better understand and predict complex systems that evolve over time.

    Read the full story below, where we will explore Sensible Machine learning, its benefits, applications and limitations.

    Does Motivation + Engagement = Employee Retention?

    November 23rd, 2022 | Lavinia Negoita

    A quick search on Google and you are overwhelmed with the number of articles written about how to motivate and engage your employees. These strategies can form the backbone of company culture – trusting, transparent, people-focused – but can also refer to various perks like private healthcare, team-building, and even breakfast every Friday morning. But one thing is for sure: in today’s digital work environment in which candidates drive the recruitment process, the cost of replacing a top performer who is unhappy is significantly higher than listening to their needs.

    November 16th, 2022 | Micaela Rei

    As consultants who drive optimisation and digitalisation, our solutions always look different since they are customised for a particular client. Nevertheless, applying a specific methodology will allow you to steer the project as smoothly as possible to ensure you meet the project goals within a specific timeline and budget.

    November 9th, 2022 | Ruxandra Cotumbeanu

    Nowadays we hear more and more about cross-functional partners or cross-functional teams in our business environment. While cross-functional teams have always existed in all industries, where people with different skills and knowledge have contributed to the success of a project, there is now a real increase in the cross-functional partners.

    AI and gender (in)equality

    October 26th, 2022

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is taking the world by storm. Enabling machines to simulate intelligent human behaviour, AI unleashes a world of possibilities for businesses to automate and optimise processes, as well as generating insights for better decision-making. Nevertheless, developing this cutting-edge technology relies on historical data generated by humans, and therefore risks reproducing discriminatory practices and harmful stereotypes created by those very humans. How can we ensure that we leverage AI in the right way?

    Why are you telling me this? The importance of communication in the face of change

    October 5th, 2022 | Lauren Hargreaves

    Let’s start with something we all know: people dislike change. While it’s easy enough to say ‘change is good’ from an outsider perspective, when it comes to actually implementing a change ourselves we suddenly feel differently. This is because change takes two things that are very difficult to part with: time and effort.
