Deloitte announced a collaboration today with Automation Anywhere to drive further adoption of cloud deployments on Automation 360, the first cloud-native, AI-powered robotic process automation (RPA) platform. Deloitte will combine its leading capabilities in cloud infrastructure and automation to provide a first-of-its-kind solution that enables a successful migration of client automations to the cloud, helping organizations accelerate the rate and delivery of business performance while effectively limiting costs. Mutual customers, both first-time RPA and existing Automation Anywhere users, will experience a smooth transition to the cloud platform with Deloitte's migration as a service capabilities. "The need for digital transformation is more prevalent than ever as organizations continue to navigate the effects of the pandemic and pivot to cloud-based solutions that can seamlessly integrate with their existing systems," said Douglas Williams, managing director, Deloitte Consulting LLP. "Our solutions are designed for Automation 360 to help customers through the migration process to get the most value out of their RPA investment with minimal disruption, all while finding efficiencies and reducing investment costs."
Digital transformations have become a global trend in recent years. To be clear, in mainstream understanding, the term means to increase the use of data, which can then help us to build "smarter" machines, predict the future, dig out insights, eliminate human errors and maximize efficiency. However, according to the stats released by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and McKinsey & Company, only about 30% of digital transformation projects ended up successfully. The result keeps us wondering: What are the key issues to account for such high failure rate? And more importantly, how can we resolve these issues?
MANY TECH FIRMS' offices boast luxurious perks such as nap pods, massages and soda fountains that offer employees a choice of exotically flavoured sparkling water. Corporate bosses like to think that finding customised AI solutions is just as easy as selecting a fizzy drink with a hint of grapefruit. Buying AI takes time, can feel like hard work, and the results are often imperfect. A number of vendors are scurrying to come to would-be users' aid. The leaders are the West's biggest providers of cloud storage: Amazon, Google and Microsoft.
To help clients rapidly develop capabilities for addressing some of tomorrow's most complex challenges, Deloitte Consulting today announced its intention to team with SAP America, Inc. to build a new suite of services for enabling digital transformation. Deloitte Consulting and SAP are expected to co-innovate on the development of offerings that will help organizations benefit from the expanded SAP Leonardo portfolio--to automate processes, gain deeper insights for decision-making, and deliver innovation and value throughout the enterprise. SAP Leonardo is a Digital Innovation System that combines machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities, blockchain technology, analytics, and big data on SAP Cloud Platform to enable rapid innovation that can scale across the entire organization. Deloitte Consulting and SAP also intend to create new "micro-services" that extend the capabilities of SAP Leonardo, with an initial plan to focus on offerings that address evolving machine learning, analytics, and IoT needs in finance and throughout the supply chain. "As businesses strive to adopt digital business models, they are seeking trusted technology that enables them to operate with more agility, to deliver more effective results and to simplify their operations," said Rob Enslin, member of the Executive Board of SAP SE and President of Cloud Business Group, SAP.
