I'm not achieving my Automation goals

Struggling to grow your program?

It's quite normal to get stuck with no real path towards Automation at scale.

After an organization's first few automations, many companies struggle to define a path forward to successful ramp-up and sustained growth of their automation program. They face something that Optezo calls the “Automation Stall Zone”, wondering how to move forward, what level of benefits to expect, what pitfalls to avoid and what best practices to implement.
Challenges of RPA at Scale
Optezo has found that any Automation program has to overcome a number of hurdles before it can ultimately scale and realize full potential. Barriers include the lack of a methodology to build an automation roadmap, lack of top-down sponsorship, inadequate funding, inability to hire, train, and scale the necessary talent, misalignment between IT and business teams, and many more.
If you are wondering how to move forward, what benefits to expect, what pitfalls to avoid and best practices to implement, Optezo has you covered.

Common questions

How do I build and sustain an automation pipeline?

The first couple use cases for Automation might have come pretty easily, but building the “sequel” use cases and a robust automation pipeline takes dedication, and a lot of care and feeding. Finding the right use cases for RPA can be stressful, unsure where to start, who to talk to, or how to begin. Many Intelligent Automation initiatives begin with solving a specific problem, but have no attention on scaling the program to solve the next set of problems. Growing RPA across departments, divisions, and geographies is critical, but to many “enterprise-wide adoption” of Automation is a difficult undertaking.

How do we move from “random acts of Automation” to corporate adoption?

Most starter Automation programs are funded at the business unit level, or often referred to as “bottom-up adoption”. The dollars come from the folks who are the beneficiaries of the initial automations, solving business-unit level challenges. Many organizations may have multiple of these “bottom-up” efforts, lacking alignment of goals, technology and processes, as well as a lack of corporate vision and funding.

Conversely, other programs are defined at an enterprise-wide, or corporate digital transformation strategic level. These programs, commonly referred as “top-down adoption” may begin with strong vision and objectives and funding, however they are typically slow to start due to a lack of tangible use cases and in-depth process knowledge.

Do I need consultants involved to build Automation success?

Most organizations look to outside help initially to stand-up their Automation program, but when those consultants are no-longer needed full time, companies are faced with a challenge: Keep an expensive consultant and reduce the ROI of their program or let them go and watch their RPA expertise walk out the door. When that consultant leaves, typically so does the momentum and Automation knowledge that created your initial successes, and your program is left without a path forward.

Can we achieve Automation success without CIO and IT involvement?

In “bottom-up” strategies, a business unit may implement Intelligent Automation with the basic minimal IT involvement. As an Automation program begins to grow, so does the optics from the CIO, asking valid questions around data security, hosting, supportability, process definition and development, reusability, testing, system availability, and disaster recovery aspects of the Automation program. Without solutions for these components, and without corporate alignment of the Automation program and the IT organization, the program will never expand out of the “Automation Stall Zone” and the benefits that Automation can provide your organization will not be realized.
