Build a Centralized Process Automation Platform

Grow beyond a lighthouse project to scale process automation across your organization.

Drive Process Automation Adoption for All Teams

Process automation typically starts with a pilot program to select a workflow technology, followed by a lighthouse project in which a team delivers clearly defined goals in a limited amount of time. But how do you grow beyond a lighthouse project to scale adoption across your entire organization?

Many enterprises scale process automation by providing a centralized automation platform as a standard solution to the entire organization. Teams can use the platform to automate their own use cases without having to select a new technology, and they can share best practices and lessons learned. Standardizing also promotes consistency for reporting and compliance.

Process Automation Platform Checklist

When building a centralized process automation platform, keep these things in mind:

  • The platform must be able to orchestrate business processes that involve many different types of work: from human tasks to automated work that requires APIs, microservices, RPA bots, IoT devices, AI/ML tools, legacy systems, and more
  • The platform must be able to manage complex, long-running business processes with technical features such as state persistence, message correlation, timeout handling, error handling, compensation for problems, and status transparency
  • The platform must have an open, flexible architecture that can integrate with the rest of your technology stack in a way that’s easy to implement and maintain
  • The platform should be able to scale as teams automate more and more processes and as the platform executes an increasing number of process instances
  • The platform should facilitate collaboration between IT teams and business users so they can work together to implement automated processes quickly and accurately
  • The platform should help you continuously improve and optimize processes through comprehensive reports and dashboards that cover processes from start to finish
