The author of this whitepaper document, Bharath Yadla, having been a serial entrepreneur and seasoned executive with 20+ years of experience in business development, product strategy, disruptive products, and digital solutions, with an expertise in RPA, intelligent automation, big data analytics, AI, bots, and integration processes, now serves as a VP of Workato. In this whitepaper, Yadla discusses how historically, the process of automation has always evolved within the context of industrial transformation. Today, however, according to Yadla, automation has gone far beyond traditional heavy industries since the industrial era, and nowadays the new era of automation is evolving and powering formerly human-driven business processes across industries and departments—be it HR, finance, sales, IT, or marketing. It also goes far beyond simply eradicating manual tasks and inefficiencies.
Today, businesses look to automation to power digital transformation and, eventually, to realise new revenue streams. As such, Enterprise Automation as Yadla outlines, is driven by a multitude of technologies with the goal of integrating people, processes, and technologies at scale. Here, in this whitepaper, are a few ways Yadla outlines how automation is driving enterprise transformation in an unprecedented manner.
