CTI Consulting GmbH was once again represented with a presentation at this year’s EAMKON conference, which took place from 29.9. to 01.10.2020 in Stuttgart. Dr. Dietmar Gerlach, Head of IT Management Consulting, presented on the topic of “RPA as a strategic design option for enterprise architecture management”.
The presentation addresses the growing danger that Robotic Process Automation (RPA) could prove to be a mortgage for enterprise architectures if the enterprise architects do not find a suitable answer to this problem in the form of effective governance.
The presentation highlighted the opportunities and risks of the topic, but also looked at and presented effective measures to mitigate the risks. A process model was also used to show how mistakes can be avoided when introducing RPA in a company. The process model is presented and explained using a practical use case (integration of travel expense accounting with Datev) and the business benefits are described.
The presentation was very well received by the audience, some of whom were present on site and connected via live stream, and was followed by a lively and extensive discussion. The participants felt well represented by the statements made and were able to confirm them based on their own experiences.
The participants had the following reactions to the presentation:
- “Very good presentation in terms of content!”
- “Interesting presentation from the practice of a consulting firm.”
- “Great topic”
- “Well-rounded presentation”
