Workflow automation is poised to permeate further into industries in 2020, supported by advanced technologies and driven by growing demands.
FREMONT, CA: To take advantage of the era of digital transformation, there are certain prerequisites, and workflow automation is one among them. Managing complex workflows has always been a difficult task for companies. However, the emergence of automation and its successful incorporation into workflow has helped make operations smoother and empowered enterprises to drive up productivity.

• Augmenting Automation with AI
The potential of AI is significant, and by adding it to workflow automation, enterprises can realize a series of benefits. For businesses, intelligent automation is far more valuable than simple automation. As AI breaks into workflow automation, companies will be in a position to enhance processing prowess. Subsequently, the decision-making aspects of automated workflows will improve a lot. Analyzing workflow data through AI will help bring new opportunities to workflow automation.
The relevance of workflow automation depends on how easily users can deploy it to drive complicated workflows. 2020 is expected to make workflow automation less dependent on coding, thereby allowing users without the knowledge of coding to develop automated workflows for their companies.

A higher number of assets can be connected, and business processes can be handled in real-time with the backing of 5G networks. Faster the network, the better is the potential for automation. Thus, as 5G covers wider areas, businesses will be able to enhance workflow automation.
From simplifying workflows to creating a seamless interface between human employees and machines, automation is playing a vital role.
