    Garbage-in/garbage-out: why data quality is critical to digital automation
    When it comes to conversations about automation, it’s typically the possibilities that technology has to offer which grab the headlines. Although it’s important for people to understand the kind of efficiency gains that robots or artificial intelligence can deliver for organisations, there are pre-requisites to consider beforehand to achieve those gains and that merits airtime as well.

    Camunda's Bernd Rücker on process automation
    At a recent conference for Java and Software innovation, we bumped into Bernd Rücker, co-founder and chief technologist of open-source workflow and decision automation platform Camunda. We asked Bernd what he felt were the biggest problems facing process automation/process efficiency projects and how Camunda can solve some of these problems. Find out what he said:

    RPA for government: dynamite or kryptonite?
    The opportunity for any organisation to automate high volume, repetitive tasks is one which is full of allure. When you’re a government department or agency whose core business is built around people-heavy processes it’s even more attractive.   Along with the potential for cost savings and error reduction is the bigger goal of making swathes of routine operations digital and of course, better serving citizens.

    Is the public sector implementing Artificial Intelligence properly?
    Artificial Intelligence provides huge opportunities for government to deliver more for less through increased productivity and to improve the lives of citizens.  The government understands its importance – AI and Data was named as one of the four ‘Grand Challenges’ in the Industrial Strategy White Paper.

    Under the hood: Building a low-code digital service with Digital Process Automation
    Here is an overview of how we can quickly implement a digital service suitable for both citizens and partners with Digital Process Automation (DPA). The following video shows how a local council can use DPA to digitise and streamline its housing process, empowering public sector employees to create solutions quickly and easily, saving time and money compared to both manual and custom code approaches.

    Robotic Process Automation (RPA) or Digital Process Automation (DPA)?
    Robotic Process Automation (RPA) seems to be riding a crest of a wave at the moment — everyone’s talking about it in digital transformation. But is it the silver bullet it’s made out to be, and how does it work with Digital Process Automation (DPA)?   To RPA, or not RPA? RPA is predominantly screen scraping technology. It’s good for repetitive tasks, quick fixes, plugging gaps and integrating legacy systems with modern applications.
