speaker Manish Rai VP of Product Marketing, Automation Anywhere

The ease of use and rapid ROI have made RPA a cornerstone of digital formation. However, 80% of enterprise data is “Dark Data” – information that is difficult to extract using RPA alone. Cognitive platforms can bring structure to unstructured data but are hampered by high costs and long deployment cycles.

Future Trends & AI: What to watch for as the future workplace, ethics and machines massively

speaker Lauren DeLisa Coleman Digi-Cultural Trend Analyst, Contributor: Forbes,



speaker Ann Furlong FCCA, Director, APAC Customer Team and Global Enablement, BlackLine

Robotic process automation (RPA) can automate manual tasks, manage workflow, and standardise finance and accounting (F&A) processes across complex organisations and IT landscapes. Organisations utilising RPA and finance automation within their F&A operations have been able to:

  • Automate accounting and finance processes up to 80%
  • Increase accounting productivity by 50%
  • Improve shared service centre efficiency by as much as 75%.

RPA, rather than ushering in the robot rebellion, will free CFOs and their teams to finally do what they’re meant to be doing – performing analysis, advising the business, and providing impactful financial data to shape their organisations’ future. At this session you will gain insight into the technologies driving the future of finance. Learn how to separate RPA fact from fiction so you can prepare for finance automation transformation and build a robotic accounting department.
