Automating work means the ability to offer a better experience at speed and scale.
Successful automation isn’t singular—it doesn’t come from one project or solution. It’s an iterative process that adapts with your changing business needs.
So, where do you start? According to this quick, practical guide to digital business automation, select one or two projects as a starting point. The key is to make each project individually valuable, knowing that as they build and interconnect, the benefit can be exponential.
The same points can also be said about the skills needed to bring your automation projects to life.
Learning is an iterative process. Select one or two skill areas to develop. Look at the learning journeys and the cloud automation courses available. Then, consider the IBM Cloud Digital Learning Subscription (DLS) as a way to build those key skills.
IBM Cloud Digital Learning Subscription
