Robotic Process Automation: a hype or a technology with a proven track record?

Arnout De Vis // RoboRana

Tired of repetitive and manual tasks in your organization? Need more hands to process high volume transactions across various applications? Ever heard of a virtual workforce that can take over these repetitive actions? In this inspiring session, we will introduce the Robotic Process Automation (or RPA) technology with its facts & myths and prove that the technology is mature and irreplaceable for the digitalization of the workforce. We will also show the power of intelligent automation by combining RPA with AI technology like chatbots and intelligent OCR.

Invisible infrastructure: the future of development

Jeroen Sterken // Faros

With big data, IoT and a world that becomes increasingly more digital we have to ask ourselves if we as IT department are up to the task? Are we still dealing with data centers - virtual or not - or are we focusing on adding business value for our business/customers?

Functions & Serverless computing – enabled by the likes of AWS, Microsoft, Google and IBM, is decisively gnawing the relics of infrastructure as we once used to know it. Software is joyfully eating the infrastructure world, moving more and more hardware-entrenched capabilities into easy-to-use-and-understand software layers.

2018 is the year in which radical automation will increase speed, quality and value for money and with the next generation of Artificial Intelligence kicking in, machines learn to predict what should be done next, allowing people to focus on real value rather than executing repeatable, semi-manual tasks or repairing what could have been avoided.

Don’t put your head down the rabbit hole, but come to wonderland and experience the new world of software development with rich IT infrastructure that you hardly even notice, just the way infrastructure should be.

Target audience: technical (developers/architects/IT lead) and non technical people (business) who are interested in the future of software development.
