The Future of Enterprise : Automation in Covid-19

Automation in COVID-19 has had a wide range of effects on businesses in various industry ecosystems. One effect has remained constant even though some effects change depending on infrastructure, company models, end-user needs, and others. Businesses are compelled to transition to a totally remote manner of working, at least temporarily. As a result, numerous businesses from various sectors are currently trying to determine their employees' long-term working arrangements - whether their position will be entirely remote, resume office, or mix both.

What comes next for automation is a question that arises when firms move toward novel technological developments and innovation in the midst of the epidemic. It is sure that some things will appear different, but the basics and reason for automation is the same. Because of this, businesses that must quickly transform their infrastructure, enable digital transformation, reimagine their workforces and other tasks can find comfort in increasing their investment in automation.

A Decade-Long Debate on AI in the Workplace

Businesses and customers have been weighing the benefits and drawbacks of AI (and automation generally) for years. Technology replacing and improving menial jobs that free up workers for other cognitively demanding activity has been feared. Another misconception about automation is that it will eventually make people unemployed by completely replacing their jobs in businesses.

Despite the fact that it is crucial for businesses to take into account the direct effects that technological investments will have on their workforce and the communities they serve, there are ways for these businesses to implement AI and automation while still upholding the essential "human" component of the "human plus machine" equation. More than ever, there is uncertainty about how customer preferences will change, how work definition will be altered, and how businesses will be able to stay afloat in the short-term while reinventing themselves for long-term resiliency.

Automation is the key to assisting these businesses in making this transition smoothly. It will help ensure that businesses meet the demand of their consumer at scale and ultimately free up the staff members who were previously in charge of those duties for opportunities to advance into other critical positions within an organization.

The IT Industry's Future of Automation

We witnessed directly how machine learning and artificial intelligence supported businesses and assisted them in navigating the medical industry at the beginning of the epidemic, and the use cases and requirements for related services, such automation, continue to be visible. Businesses across all sectors will be rebuilding a significant portion of their IT infrastructure in the future, creating a long-term remote workforce or implementing SaaSification to create an entirely new business model.

When developing said infrastructure, these businesses should try to rely on automation first as they go through this shift. To eliminate as many manual touchpoints as feasible, reduce unneeded downtime and the danger of manual error, and keep using personnel for higher-level strategic duties, they should ask, "How can we automate this process?"

Enterprises will be better equipped to scale and innovate moving forward as new technological developments and changes in consumer behavior continue to modify the goals and expectations of all sector leaders if they create these new infrastructures with automation as the backbone.
