Automation platforms are big on promises – lower costs, reduce risks, simplified operations, superior quality, improved predictability, enhanced consistency – the list goes on. But the reality is that achieving those results requires a tremendous amount of education, training, prototyping, development, testing, iteration, maintenance and plain old hard work.
Let’s face it – “low code” has really come to mean “expensive platform expertise” and “you can only do simple things without a developer”. Even worse, nobody tells you how to get started, where to focus your efforts, what to automate first, or how to create an automation roadmap. It can quickly become complex, costly, and confusing.
Not exactly what you thought you were signing up for.
Lack of vision and clarity lead to confusion, stalling automation efforts and crippling adoption. Automation vendors provide tools and teach you how to use them but they can’t tell you what to automate, when, or why. That’s up to you, the customer, to figure out on your own.
Of course, every business is different and each process unique. What works in another industry may not work in yours. Common best practices are a good start but what you really need is a solid plan, tailored to your individual business, and a forward-looking roadmap that defines which process automation activities can deliver the best bottom-line results in the shortest period of time.
You need a process automation vision.
The fastest way to achieve ROI with low code/no code automation tools
With nearly 30 years of experience implementing process automation solutions across a wide range of industries, we’ve pretty much seen it all. And the one common thread that we’ve identified from hundreds of customer engagements, the one thing that most often prevents automation from truly taking hold and transforming the business is this:
Lack of a strategic automation vision
Most organizations think of automation as a tactical solution to a specific set of problems. So they buy tools to solve that problem – which is a good start – but they fail to address the bigger questions, namely: how can automation make us leaner, more competitive, more innovative? The real question isn’t “how do we automate this problem away” but rather “how can we leverage automation to create a strategic advantage”?
