Personal key takeaways, thoughts and views from Blue Prism World APAC 2022 in Singapore
Attending Blue Prism World APAC 2022 was a good experience for me, learning more about RPA and IA, in a modern era of work, digital transformation and a new future of work dawning upon us. This was also one of my first few B2B / Enterprise technology events that I attended in-person as safe management measures were gradually eased since the global pandemic situation that disrupted our work and living over the past two and a half years.
The sharing sessions from the panel discussions by various business organisations across different industries gave insights into how things had transformed for their organisation with RPA and IA.
Beyond the business and technology sharing sessions, there was a particular session by a speaker, Ms. Wong Su-Yen on “Transforming to Win in Future of Work”, that left a deep impression on me. The Future is Now – 4 things to do:
- Challenge assumptions
- Learn, Unlearn, Relearn
- Stay the Course
- Dare to Try
Her amazing sharing and experiences would definitely left some lasting impacts and impressions to the attendees in both physical and virtual attendance, as SS&C Blue Prism 2022 APAC in Singapore navigates and leads the digital transformation journey through RPA and IA for businesses.
Coming from a small business owner perspective (as a sole-proprietorship business owner in photography services), being tech savvy and understanding technology are not enough, how would RPA and IA help me in my particular business sector? As well as a digital marketer and content creator role in a digital agency setup?
Coming from a technology writer/editor (in both consumer and enterprise sectors) and content creator/digital marketer perspective, with working experiences from various industries, from hospitality operations to financial advisory services, to a few years of experiences working in small and medium business (SMB) sector. Digital transformation had been on my radar in recent years as I started to cover on enterprise/business sectors, not just from Singapore’s economic push and quest in digital transformation, also from my own personal business operations experience in an SMB that continues my coverage of enterprise/B2B technology developments and macro level economic and business news in Singapore and around the world.
My personal opinions are that the SMB sectors in Singapore are still not fully onboard the digital transformation journey, not only are they underserved by technology providers, they also don’t have the necessary and adequate trained technology people to lead the digital transformation change.
Digital transformation via RPA and IA is an area that I feel would greatly help SMB sectors in their digital transformation journey. This would be an area that I hope to explore and share further down the road.
