Process Automation Centers of Excellence: the secret behind successful digital transformation

Have you successfully implemented Process Automation technology in areas of your organization, but find yourself struggling to drive further adoption? Are organizational silos, ease of knowledge sharing and resistance to change slowing things down?

You aren’t alone. Moving from pilot and lighthouse projects to a full Process Automation program is a challenge. But, there’s a solution — establishing Process Automation Centers of Excellence (CoE) to share best practices and drive organization-wide digital transformation.

“If you had one team working on the pilot, and probably also the lighthouse project, they will not only have become very familiar with the technology and architecture, but will have learned a couple of valuable lessons the hard way. These are incredibly valuable experiences and you should make sure they can be leveraged in future projects.”

From Project to Program by Bernd Ruecker, Camunda Co-founder and Chief Technologist 

With process automation playing an outsized role in powering innovation, we commissioned a survey of 400 IT decision makers in North America and Europe to benchmark enterprise adoption and determine the biggest trends, challenges and opportunities for improvement: The State of Process Automation. And we discovered that 76% of all respondents reported that they either already have a CoE in place or are actively working on one — to provide leadership, best practices, support and training for Process Automation across an organization.

In fact this number is rising. Organizations invest heavily in the roll-out of process automation across an organization with CoEs growing from 20% a year ago, to 46% today, with an additional 31% being actively planned.

    A report from a true fan. Watching sports is a little like using Open Source Software. I know that is a bit of a  stretch, but if you keep reading you will see that both need contribution from “hobby leagues”. By watching your favorite sports team you (maybe unintentionally) tell sports clubs and TV stations that you are interested in their offerings. Maybe at one point you decide to play the sport yourself. By starting to play, you begin contributing to that community. You may not ever be a professional athlete, but overall you start to influence the sport you’re participating in at a small level.  I am a big user of bpmn.io. I guess if you work at Camunda...
