Process automation

Process automation streamlines a system by removing human inputs, which decreases errors, increases speed of delivery, boosts quality, minimises costs, and simplifies the business process. It incorporates software tools, people, and processes to create a completely automated workflow.

An example would be your project management software integrated with your customer support software. A customer complaint comes through, but instead of waiting in an inbox for someone to process it, the integration automatically sends it as a task to the person assigned to handle them.

It further developed in the 1980s alongside computer models for decision-making and turning data into insights before becoming specific offering from BI teams with IT-reliant service solutions. Modern BI solutions prioritise flexible self-service analysis, governed data on trusted platforms, empowered business users, and speed to insight. This article will serve as an introduction to BI and is the tip of the iceberg.
