Reality Bytes: Demystifying Digital Transformation with Waqqas Mahmood of BakerTilly (Washington, USA)
"First figure out the 'why', not from a organisational perspective but 'why' for a particular business process, and THEN figure out what technology - if any - will be needed to transform and automate that." GBD62.Â Waqqas Mahmood leads Advanced Technology & Intelligent Automation at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP. He tells Kyle Hannan (AICPA & CIMA, UK) about the basic jargon of RPA and AI, why you should understand the tech before you put it all together, and how to identifyÂ the goals of the digital transformation. He also outlines his "3 Fs" process for fighting the factors of failure. Â TALKING POINTS: RPA and AI: the jargon, the risks and the â€˜gotchasâ€™. Donâ€™t chase the bots (the tech). Understand it before you put it all together. From AI and RPA to IA â€˜Intelligent Automationâ€™. How does innovation rise above the red tape? How to innovate in a profession thatâ€™s often perceived as having a change-averse internal culture? What the jargon means, not just in the correct technical abbreviations but in the potential opportunities for a company. Why there are times you should NOT put the customer first (not when youâ€™re testing). Start with the back-end and get that right before you roll it out to clients. Digital anxiety (personal and teamâ€™s) Identifying the goals of the digital transformation (think about the â€˜Why? Tâ€ rather than just the IT!
