Applying Hyperautomation in an Oversite Capacity

Citizen programs, particularly those that are managing funding disbursements and payments, experience fraud, wastage, and abuse – at a rate that is often much higher than expected. To manage program performance and efficiency, program leaders are using hyperautomation to reduce manual error and identify bad actors.  The transition from paper to digital, along with the application of hyperautomation, is helping to transform how programs are run, enabling them to meet their performance objectives.

Panel: Improving Employee Experience

The workplace of 2021 looks dramatically different than the workplace of the beginning of 2020. While employees have adjusted to the changes in policies, procedures, and even work location, are they as engaged and fulfilled as they were one year ago? Now more than ever, it is critical to provide self-service access to workplace information that helps people do their jobs and feel secure that management understands and is addressing their concerns as they pertain to safety, access to technology, and interaction with colleagues.

Tune into this panel to hear from topic experts on the shift to a telework environment, while still ensuring employees were satisfied. What strategies have these topic experts used to not only keep their employees satisfied, but improved their employee experience? What emerging technology has helped improve their employees’ experience?

Hyperautomation in the Context of Security, Availability, and Resilience

The cloud is not just infrastructure, but a springboard for process improvement and innovations, large and small. It makes available building blocks – the 200+ services that AWS offers – that can be integrated and orchestrated to accomplish business processes end to end, with intelligence built in through our broad range of machine learning capabilities. But we shouldn’t forget that this hyperautomation has to happen against a backdrop of security, availability, and resilience. And that’s what enterprises gain when they use those AWS services as building blocks for their hyperautomation. AWS’s managed services are built on the most reliable, secure, and resilient infrastructure on the planet. It’s because you know that we’ve thought about those things and provided the robust environment for hyperautomation that you can proceed with speed and creativity to take advantage of the opportunities that hyperautomation offers.
