    Automating your systems and AI technologies should make business sense.

    Let’s begin by defining a term which will come up frequently in these blinks: Intelligent automation.

    When the authors use the term, they mean the use of machines to automate tasks like data analysis and decision-making, including the follow-up actions and learnings that stem from those. Yes, these are typically tasks that are still performed by humans, which might set a few alarm bells ringing in people's minds. But don’t waste that energy worrying – Ghosh, Pallail, & Prasad’s work shows us how we can make intelligent automation benefit teams and businesses in our ever-changing technological landscapes.

    Take the example of one of Italy’s leading newspapers, Il Secolo XIX. Long at the forefront of innovation in the newspaper business, pioneering color printing, a digital presence, and integrated newsrooms, Il Secolo XIX nevertheless faced serious challenges.

    The leadership realized that if they didn’t change fast to keep up with the digital world, they’d fall behind. They knew that they needed to produce high-quality, cost-effective journalism to sustain and grow their readership.

    Their solution? They introduced something called a virtual assistant. The AI technology would quickly check pieces of journalism for grammatical errors while also scouring the internet for surprising links. This meant that journalists at Il Secolo XIX could reference sources and previous news items that might have escaped their attention – the end product being in-depth, expansive pieces of writing that readers would be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.

    It meant that the journalists could spend their time writing great journalism, while the machine did the tiring research and proofreading. Rather than making the human writers at Il Secolo XIX redundant, the virtual assistant simply allowed them to do their jobs better.

    This is a great example of how leadership saw an opportunity not only to improve their key metrics, like maintaining and growing their readership, but to adapt so that the journalists could do their best work, at scale. It also shows us the necessity and value of aligning business strategies with intelligent automation and integrated AI.

    So, let’s get practical – how can you set your business on the right path by integrating intelligent automation with your business strategies and systems? Well, as a leader in your business, you have to begin by asking yourself the right questions: Where do you want to take your business or organization? What does the future look like for your industry? Will developments there affect how your business value is defined a few years down the line? In answering these key questions, you can then implement a clear strategy that will allow your leadership teams to think through all the components and systems, resources, and boundaries that need to be reviewed and aligned.

    Basically, what you need to remember here is that while the goal of automating repetitive work and freeing up human potential is a great one, it must also make business sense. For automation and AI integration to really take off at your organization, you need to have a serious strategy.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
