Upcoming Robotics Process Automation workshop

The UC Robotics Process Automation team are happy to announce that the first one-day RPA workshop will be held on Wednesday 8 July.

This one-day workshop is offered by Price Waterhouse Cooper to enhance Robotic Process Automation awareness and capability using UiPath. The course is delivered over one day, during which attendees will be given an introduction into RPA development and capabilities, Agile development methodology and an overview of how to identify processes that are good candidates for RPA.
This workshop is designed to equip attendees with the foundational skills and understanding of RPA that will enable them to understand where they are best placed to contribute to RPA adoption at UC and to identify future personal development areas that will enable that contribution. These roles can be:

  • RPA Enthusiast / Change leader within teams
  • RPA Developer
  • RPA Implementation Manager

The format of this bootcamp suits anyone who has logical workflow thinking and is interested in become a “RPA Enthusiast”.

If you are interested in attending, please discuss this with your manager and then notify us of your interest.

Upcoming Robotics Process Automation Zoom Session

Intelligent Automation:

RPA Zoom Session,

12pm –  1pm Thursday 7 May 2020

Zoom Meeting ID: 220 042 6928

https://canterbury.zoom.us/j/2200426928

UC is currently running a programme to assess and implement intelligent automation opportunities across the university and form a Centre of Excellence in process automation. The aim of this programme is to utilise intelligent automation to provide improved service to students, clients, suppliers and staff and provide staff with more time to complete unfinished tasks, solve complex problems, and perform additional tasks.  UC currently has twelve automated processes live and running, with a further two in development.

We would like you to join us for this Zoom session where we will cover the following topics:

  • What is Intelligent Automation, and where does Robotic Process Automation (“RPA”) sit on the spectrum between rules-based and adaptive thinking.
  • What is UC currently doing in Robotic Process Automation, including case studies and end-user experiences.
  • Could RPA be a potential solution for a current pain point you experience that is effecting your ability to complete your required tasks, or provide the required level of service to UC’s students, clients and staff.
  • What are the required skillsets for working with intelligent automation, and how can I  upskill myself.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with the team at intelligentautomation@canterbury.ac.nz.

We will be running similar sessions in the near future for those who are unable to make this session.

Robotics Process Automation – Brown Bag lunch

When: 12pm –  1pm Wednesday 25th March 2020

Upcoming Robotic Process Automation Bootcamp

The Intelligent Automation team at UC are happy to announce  that the first five-day Robotic Process Automation (RPA) bootcamp will be held from 4 to 8 May.

Price Waterhouse Cooper will be offering this training to enhance RPA developer capability beyond the foundational training. The course covers three to four hours of theory each day, and then two to three hours of Practical exercises. On the fifth day, attendees will complete a case study and present back. After the training, attendees will be able to create robust automation solutions, and run automation scripts using UiPath.

This training is designed to equip staff with the necessary skills to participate in Robotic Process Automation in a variety of capacities such as:

  • Enthusiast / Change leader within teams
  • Developer
  • Implementation Manager

The best candidates for the bootcamp are IT developers, business analysts across the university, process owners, but really anyone who has logical workflow thinking and is interested in become an “RPA Enthusiast”.

If you are interested in attending, please discuss this with your manager and then notify us of your interest.
