Often companies develop or buy technology without calculating their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), which is a big mistake. TCO doesn't only include cloud and development costs, but also the amount of time it will take your teams to learn the new system, and many other factors. These costs combined must be compared against a similar holistic calculation for the benefits, and only then can informed business decisions be made. In this post we go through an example of such calculations for a client of ours.
Smart Automation leverages feedback loops between humans and machines to efficiently evolve systems and effectively leverage each other's strengths. Humans can think creatively and openly to find novel solutions while machines can efficiently search through enormous amounts of data to find specific patterns. When these two skill sets are combined appropriately, they provide huge value. In this post we go through a high-level view of feedback loops for Smart Automation and the best ways to leverage them.
