And how do we go further in this transformation? The answer is easier said than done: through automation. And how to start our automation journey? In this talk, Larissa will explain briefly Digital Transformation, how it correlates to automation and then proceed to the concept and types of automation, and detail how to embark on this exciting journey! After understanding what automation is, we will learn how to select and prioritize automation, creating a strong business case. As the third step, Larissa will show and explain how to establish a realistic roadmap for a successful deployment. After this session, the audience will have the knowledge and means necessary to start applying those concepts and create their automation journey, one step after another. Are you prepared?
