9:00 am - 9:30 am Look Before You Leap: Architecting a Framework for RPA Governance

Deepak Luthra - Head - Digital Center of Excellence Bristol-Myers Squibb
When used in the right context, robots are quite powerful. In turn, so too are the people that configure, text and run those robots. A good governance approach should empower a purpose, agenda, people, investments and process and technology, to form a digital transformation journey map.  In this session, attendees will think about and discuss governing RPA activity. 

  • Discuss the difference in governance for automation vs. conventional strategic initiatives
  • Highlight the key roles, responsibilities  and accountability of major parties involved in the IA activity
  • Learn about the controls needed to exist in the configuration, testing and running of the robots
  • Learn how to document robot behavior and hold it/the person behind it responsible for errors
  • Hear about the processes (if any)  that should always be human-driven

9:30 am - 10:00 am Updating Disjointed Legacy Systems as a Driver of Business Change

Grant Nelson - VP, Strategic Financial Analytics Genuine Parts Company
A top priority for CFOs involves updating disjointed legacy systems that, in their current state, still get the job done – although, not efficiently. Today’s CFO needs to foster a culture of agility that will ultimately feed (or feed off) the company’s bottom line. Many CFOs are tasked with the huge project of unifying systems for quicker, more cost-effective processes. During this session, we’ll explore the best ways to update your disjointed legacy systems that are costing your efficiency and money. During this session, we’ll explore:
·         Finding the right solutions when there are so many options
·         The power of telling stories in a coordinated way
·         Outlining goals and actionable plans for unifying your legacy systems
