Crossing the Chasm: Is Your Community Leaving You Behind?

Date:

Thursday 13th July, 13.15-14.15

Summary:

Consumers freely transact 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with applications such as eBay, Amazon, Facebook, mobile banking, and many others. In the workplace, they are presented with archaic tools that are difficult to use and often constrain their ability to do their job.

This workshop considered the impact of automating human knowledge in the form of cognitive intelligence based digital applications that will change the way you deliver back office services. A knowledge empowered workforce, equipped with digital mobile self-service devices, offers a huge prize in terms of cost savings and efficiencies, and presents you with the opportunity to transform your organisation by taking pressure off scarce key resources. View the workshop slides to find out what this means practically for you and your services.
