Transform into a Lean Enterprise to focus on customer value in times of uncertainty
Watch On-Demand

Organisations are trending more towards becoming Lean Enterprises focusing on value creation for the end customer. Highly efficient organisations understand their entire value chain, working backwards from customer requirement to fulfilment, not the other way around. The focus on optimising the value chain has seen the re-birth of Lean in organisations as a mechanism for motivating a culture for improvements.

Beyond the horizon an opportunity exists for businesses to embrace a new normal. Companies need to focus on protecting their core business and minimising costs to deliver their products and/or services.

But, where do companies start? How do they know what is core or non-core in their business? And ultimately, how can they be confident that their decisions won’t compromise any competitive advantage making them worse off?

Key Takeaways

  • Understand how iBPM solutions can accelerate transforming into Lean Enterprises.
  • Learn where customer value is delivered in a business.
  • Measure how to deliver customer value with the least amount of effort.
  • Create ownership among staff to make improvements.

Systems Thinking & Approach: The Enterprise Operating System for the Concept to Cash Value Stream
Watch On-Demand

pplying the fundamentals and using a systematic approach to your improvement is critical now more than ever. Not only does our technology rapidly change, but so does the people using it. The fundamentals to the methods and tools have been modified, skipped, and/or politicized over the past decade leading to a deep approach rather than taking the first step of understanding how the enterprise operates. The structure and process must be in place for Strategic Planning, Policy Deployment, Annual Operations Execution, and Operational Excellence in order to keep your improvements sustainable. The approach must be packaged so that all people can be part of and accept the change. Key elements from this talk will be:

  • Determining your Optimum Speed & Predictability through the fundamentals of analyzing current performance, capability, and entitlement.
  • Use what’s needed, not what the standard has forced upon you. Finding the balance of Technical/Political/Cultural influences.
  • To know the difference between doing something Different versus Differently
  • Eliminating the Culture of Repetitive Problem Solving
  • Knowing if you are in a Recovery, Turnaround, or Transformation and the importance of using the right approach.

RPAs can be used to ease the connection and interface between different technologies or between old legacy and newer systems. It is perfect to replace processes that are highly manual, rule-based, and repetitive. While this tool has proven success, they come with a big bill and lots of monitoring and validation.

While RPAs can save significant cost and time they cannot replace fully integrated systems that talk to each other without the need for a middle-channel to bend the data and translate into other forms. I will provide several examples of how we utilized RPAs to save millions of dollars and avoid significant headache. I will also list some steps I would do differently next time I implement an RPA project.

  • RPAs are fantastic, if they are done right and if the right resources/partners have been utilized
  • Significant cost and time can be saved using RPAs
  • Monitoring and validation can come with big bills
  • Next time I implement RPAs I would probably invest in resources
  • Many RPAs can last for years and can do magic
  • When translating data between different systems/technologies, RPAs are great “band-aids” that can temporary replace fully integrated systems. However, a fully integrated system should be the ultimate goal if money, resources, and time are available because the solution is native and should works seamlessly.

You are standing in a room amidst a sea of different unsolved jigsaw puzzle and a pile of loose pieces yet to be connected. Each puzzle must be solved simultaneously while new puzzle pieces are streaming into the room from all angles. 

There is no obvious indication of which piece goes with which puzzle, and you only have fractions of a second to decide where a piece may fit into every puzzle in the room and some pieces may fit into multiple puzzles. The time you have to make sense of all this, your window of opportunity, is the time it takes the customer to click a choice in a Digital property, move their eyeball to a new location of a Physical property, or the milliseconds that define a span of time for the next best action.

Now let’s think about puzzles in another different domain, security, are you safe? Who is a potential insider threat? How do you know? These are just different puzzles to solve, the unknowns are the puzzles.  How do you answer the unknown and deliver insight that is thought to be impossible? How do you do this with precision and better than your competitors?  We will introduce the basics in this discussion.

Data Analytics is the foundation of modern decision-making process It allows analyzing raw data tomake important decisions. During the recent Covid-19 virus epidemic we saw the power of analytics topredict the severity and the duration of the epidemic.

In every decision made by hospitals, medical professionals, and government used analytics to plan the response to this disease. For every busines sexecutive it is essential to understand basic principles of analytics. First, this seminar offers basic information about analytics which includes machine learning and deep learning. Next it enumerates the tools necessary for building analytics models. Analytics models are currently built using TensorFlow/Keras, Python/R software products and require asignificant amount of computing resources.

This precludes running analytics models on personal computers. Generally, they are not powerful enough. Analytics models usually run on cloud servers because they have enough computing resources. Consequently, Fortune 500 companies build analytics models on cloud servers. Cloud servers provide access to GPU (Graphics Processing Units) and TPU (Tensor Processing Units).

These processors can execute trillions of floating instructions per second. Due to parallel processor architecture built in GPU and TPU, they are ideal for matrix multiplication operations—the most frequently used operation in analytics models. The 3 most popular cloud services are AWS (Amazon Web Services), GCP (Google Cloud Platform), and Azure from Microsoft. Cloud servers provide general computing service in three “flavors” –Infrastructure, Platform, and Software.

They also provide the services uniquely necessary for analyticsprojects. This seminar will examine these cloud services in detail. A comparison of them will be explored from theperspective of which cloud service is better suited for analytics models. Next, the seminar will focus onhow to set up cloud servers for analytics projects.

RPA teams are often challenged by the limitation of the existing RPA toolset, in being unable to automate knowledge based tasks. Many RPA products have incorporated the magic terms “AI” or “Analytics”, however on closer examination, one quickly finds that most solutions are either too narrow or there is misrepresentation of AI/ML capabilities.

In 2017, our RPA CoE at Nokia, set out to create a general solution for Nokia RPA 2.0, which would integrate Nokia’s AI/Analytics platform (used as “Brains”) & RPA technology (used as “Hands”) and bring in the capability of automating judgement driven complex processes. We selected this use-case as our pilot as it had the required cognitive complexity to necessitate use of deep-learning algorithms, sufficient volumes to produce a viable business case & was scalable across multiple customers.

This session will summarize this story of conceptualizing, implementing, improving and achieving success, including lessons learnt during this journey.

Key Takeaways

  • How to visualize and set-up a general solution for RPA augmented with AI/ML algorithms
  • Business case set-up & managing organization’s expectations/response – what is unique for such systems
  • Nuances and operational challenges of implementing such systems
  • Outlook for such systems
