PwC’s Data Automation Team empowers organizations to automate the process of discovering, blending, analyzing and operationalizing analytic models through a collaborative and governed platform - all without writing any code.
Thriving, citizen-led data automation teams generate analytic and automation ‘quick-wins’, which serve as a catalyst for larger enterprise-wide buy-in and accelerated digital transformation.
In this episode we discuss how small automation can be used to deliver 'quick wins' as organizations are looking for ways to create time in their schedule to focus on more extraordinary demands. Organizations don’t have to start from scratch – they can now leverage existing automations through a third party library that can be scaled for a wide variety of purposes across organizations in Finance, IT, Treasury, HR, Tax and other functions.
Digital Academies - PwC’s Virtual Digital Academies provide demonstrations and “hands-on” exercises that guide participants through the latest tools for data analytics, visualization and automation. Relevant use case examples help teams discover new ways to solve complex data processing needs. We configure the academy to fit your organization's specific needs.
Opportunity Assessment and Intake - Building on the momentum post the initial Digital Academy, we work with organizations to develop model building workshops and sprints that align with the launch of an automation program and solve specific challenges you’re facing today. We help your teams select pilot use cases and jumpstart the automation model build phase.
Leadership strategy workshops - We showcase automated processes and learnings identified in the pilot phase and brainstorm the next list of target use cases and opportunity areas.
Accelerated builds - We have advanced technical resources as part of our low cost onshore & offshore teams that can be leveraged to facilitate rapid development and deployment of the high impact models for your function including addressing use cases that are highly complex and would need dedicated support and technical SMEs
