Episode 3 - The automation advantage

Intelligent automation is the fastest growing area of enterprise tech investment. The potential to boost performance in the typical company with these tools is both broad and deep. But as companies look for places to apply these tools, they often fall into two common traps: chasing quick, easy wins that won’t have much impact, or big, ambitious projects that will offer major strategic advantages. What they should focus on, however, is a third option: projects that build their capacity.
