Reopening and Recovery Part 7: Embrace Automation, Cloud & Analytics to Drive Efficiencies

  |  June 16, 2020

The booming pre-crisis economy provided companies the leeway to live with inefficient processes that often led to bloated operational bureaucracies and headcounts.  However, the post-COVID 19 reopening and recovery period will require organizations to quickly identify opportunities of doing more with less from a process, operational and talent perspective in order to stay competitive in a more challenging economic environment.

As organizations reopen, finance leaders are looking for ways that will both help them optimize costs in the short-term and position them for success as economic normality returns.  A recent Gartner survey of CFOs reveals that these executives anticipate investing more in robotic process automation, cloud-based ERP technologies, and advanced analytics to achieve those goals.  

However, to drive efficiencies, effective use of these tools will require an upgrade of skills.  Organizations will need tech-savvy professionals who couple domain expertise in their respective fields with use of this new breed of cloud-based automation and analytics tools.  Leaders must look internally to identify and/or upskill existing employees or externally for professionals already experienced with this coupling of business domain and technical expertise.

    Haha. I thought about this on the bus too. The real chocolate is passable, but your agave syrup chocolate truffles are borderline. Mona Bart Raddi

    The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.
