What is business automation?

With business automation we aim to apply technology in order to perform repetitive tasks and thus make a shift into a process-driven approach that supports an organization in increasing the capacity for business innovations. Business automation is applicable in areas where tasks involve a sequenced order of steps to be performed.

Business automation contains varying degrees of complexity. Starting with basic automation, which enables the automation of simple and rudimentary tasks. Process automation builds on top of that and includes a predefined order and orchestration of the tasks for uniformity and transparency. With advanced automation, the human and machine/computer tasks across multiple systems can be merged and synchronized. Lastly, intelligent automation uses AI to enable machine decision-making on situation analysis.
