Automation 18

Event Overview

Automation 18 is the premier conference for digital automation professionals and enthusiasts. What started off with BPM alone 11 years ago has evolved into a discipline we refer to as digital automation that includes technologies like BPM, Low-code Development, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help accelerate your digital automation journey with the objective of delivering near end-to-end automation. Industry thought leaders will share their experiences and best practices from real world projects and what innovations to expect from digital automation vendors in the coming year. You will hear real world success stories, lessons learned, tricks and techniques that have helped us all become more successful in our own digital automation journey. Most importantly, you will get to network and hear from your peers about what’s working – what’s not! I guarantee you this “By Invitation Only” event will be like no other digital automation conference you’ve attended.
