7 of the Most Important Automation Statistics for 2019
Ignore the hype – here are the facts!Add bookmark
1. Machine learning and artificial intelligence
are the most popular investment targets for 2019.
2. More than 30%
of global Shared Services have implemented robotic automation; 44% are in the planning and testing phase. That leaves a quarter still uncommitted.
3. Most automation strategies
are owned by Shared Services (47%). IT owns 25%. (Best practices suggest IT is not the optimal owner.)
4. Globally, half of Shared Services
that have implemented robotics have less than five bots (or ‘projects’) currently installed.
5. Nearly half the automation projects that fail
do so because of wrong process choice. Insufficient change management is another key factor.
6. Shared Services planning
to integrate additional intelligent automation are prioritizing Artificial Intelligence ahead of Machine Learning, Intelligent Chatbots, Cognitive solutions, and Blockchain.
7. Most Shared Services
don’t currently have the resources needed to leverage additional IA solutions. They also don't have ready access to the data required to proceed.
