Intelligent Automation: RPA Brown Bag Lunch

When: 12pm –  1pm Wednesday 26th February 2020

Where: Puaka James Hight 210

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 nine automated processes live and running, with a further two in development.

 

We would like any interested staff to attend this session over lunch 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 the this session.

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.
