AI & Intelligent Automation Live APAC

Exploring how Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Automation can revolutionize your enterprise

Whether you’re like Elon Musk and think AI has the potential to destroy civilization, or Steve Wozniak and believe in its ability to improve humanity, there is no doubt that artificial intelligence is an exciting and disruptive force. AI, Intelligent Automation and Robotics Process Automation are technologies which are sweeping the world transforming businesses as they go. Although investing in an IA solution doesn’t necessarily equate to exponential growth, those that invest in the right solutions and implement them correctly are securing a competitive edge. Consequently the gap between those who have and haven’t taken advantage of AI and Intelligent Automation is widening.

Whether you’re implementing your first Robot, or looking to embed artificial intelligence, the path to success is littered with false-starts, messy processes and unsatisfactory pilots. Having a blue-print to implementation, a plan to scale-up and the right talent in place is critical to ensure your project results in the promised ROI. AI & Intelligent Automation Live APAC can help with that. Free to attend, you can dial in from the comfort of your desk and listen to global AI and IA experts live or ondemand. Together we will tackle a range of topics including; shifting from RPA to intelligent automation, scaling-up, talent management, security and governance and customer experience. The event will help you create a road-map for your next IA project with lessons learnt from those who have gone before, and give you the chance to ask questions of our AI and AI experts.

Future Trends & AI: What to watch for as the future workplace, ethics and machines massively

speaker Lauren DeLisa Coleman Digi-Cultural Trend Analyst, Contributor: Forbes,



speaker Ann Furlong FCCA, Director, APAC Customer Team and Global Enablement, BlackLine

Robotic process automation (RPA) can automate manual tasks, manage workflow, and standardise finance and accounting (F&A) processes across complex organisations and IT landscapes. Organisations utilising RPA and finance automation within their F&A operations have been able to:

  • Automate accounting and finance processes up to 80%
  • Increase accounting productivity by 50%
  • Improve shared service centre efficiency by as much as 75%.

RPA, rather than ushering in the robot rebellion, will free CFOs and their teams to finally do what they’re meant to be doing – performing analysis, advising the business, and providing impactful financial data to shape their organisations’ future. At this session you will gain insight into the technologies driving the future of finance. Learn how to separate RPA fact from fiction so you can prepare for finance automation transformation and build a robotic accounting department.
