Khaleej Times, in association with world's #1 Intelligent Automation platform, Automation Anywhere, successfully hosted the fourth edition of Digital Boardroom, a series of five closed-door discussions, on Sunday, 6th September.

The global pandemic has made businesses all over the world realize the importance of technological advancements in a bid to stay afloat. While several businesses in the region had already embarked on their digital transformation journey, Covid-19 has positively sped up the process. However, there are numerous challenges amid success stories of companies that have been successful in ensuring seamless operations even during challenging times. The attendees shared and discussed their strategies, aspirations, experiences and hurdles along the way.

The digital boardroom witnessed participation from top digital leaders across government organisations including Abu Dhabi Department of Culture & Tourism, Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority, Abu Dhabi Global Markets, Ministry of Tourism - KSA, Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture, National Center for Digital Certification KSA, Ministry of Education KSA, Fly Dubai and SEHA as they discussed best practices on aligning stakeholders with investments in automation/digitalization, importance of right talent to aid digital transformation as well as effective utilization of allocated budgets. 

Automation Anywhere has been steadfast on its revolutionary path to change the way the world works with automation that is both powerful and accessible to everyone. Sharing some best practices and speaking about how automation is defining the future of work, Milan Sheth, Executive Vice President, IMEA, Automation Anywhere, said "Technology adoption has been faster now than ever before, the pandemic has definitely accelerated the implementation of automation across various industries. Companies have started to drive larger digital transformation goals internally, thus establishing a fine synergy across front and back end operations improving customer satisfaction. Laying out a process transformation journey needs abundant supply of skilled talent, and we encourage companies to take up larger skilling initiatives across their organization so that automation is not only restricted to the CTO or CIO's office, it can actually function across all levels of an organization."

Automation Anywhere delivered a powerful two-hour agenda with the help of successful business cases, real ROI calculations, ease of automation and freeing resources to focus on higher-order business challenges and perform knowledge.
