Intelligent Automation Enablement – Your Framework for Success

The Cortex Intelligent Automation Enablement program enables you to Kickstart, Design, Launch, and Accelerate to Self-Sufficient, Autonomous Operations. Get Automated – Stay Automating.

Our vision is a world where everyone can automate, the Cortex Intelligent Automation Enablers make this happen. Cortex has proven strategies, methodologies, and approaches to minimise barriers of entry and deliver rapid proof of value for Intelligent Automation. Enabling business users to be able to manifest small and incremental changes to processes, and services is critical. Getting automated is not enough, you must think about staying automated.

To be successful you must consider:

  • Vision
  • Strategies
  • Methodologies
  • and FINALLY Technology

Why is the Intelligent Automation Enablement approach so important?

An unnecessary focus on the initial selection of automation tools at the expense of the strategies and methods inhibits organisations realising long-term value. To embrace digital evolution is to change the mindset driving transformation.

The Cortex Intelligent Automation Enablement program has been created based on over 1000 man-years of automation experience established in Process Automation and Control engineering. Cortex clients and partners can mitigate risk, delivering automation initiatives within set timescales and budgets.

The enablement programs are designed to help organisations embrace agility and future-proof their operations. The ability, and agility, to stay automated with the long term consideration of the organisational, management, control, and governance aspects are of high importance. This will help ensure that the right automation is being used at the right time for the right reason and that the organisation is able to continuously evolve.

Cortex Intelligent Automation Enablement Program Overviews.

Each of the Cortex Enablement Program elements has been specifically designed to guarantee success. Based on proven delivery strategies and methodologies our aim is to make clients and partners self-sufficient as early as possible, the most important part is for them to own their automation initiatives.

Cortex Kickstarter

Cortex Kickstarter

What is a Cortex Kickstarter?

The Cortex Kickstarter showcases Intelligent Automation capabilities within the context of your organisation’s operational environment and individual process requirements.

Conducted as a two/three day workshop the Cortex Kickstarter enables the rapid configuration of a cloud-based Cortex Intelligent Automation Software Platform to prototype Cortex in context.

What do I need to get started? It’s simple:

  • Defined scope of the process to automate and end objective.
  • Dependencies including:
      • Availability of Data sources & 3rd party systems
      • Validated access methodologies/calls
      • Required connectivity & access.  Access to accounts, credentials, & interaction
  • Access to your organisation’s Subject Matter Experts (SMEs)

Launch Program

Cortex Launch Program

What does the Cortex Launch Program involve?

Led by Cortex or an experienced certified partner the Launch Program deploys automation within a fixed time and fixed cost 12-week program. The Launch Program provides a risk-free step to digitally evolving with automation.  The Cortex Launch Program avoids typical pitfalls of traditional ‘Digital Transformation’ projects with scope adjustments, spiraling costs, and timescales.

The Cortex Launch Program delivers automation through the phases of mobilisation, design of automation, trial testing, and UAT sign-off to production.

Deployed on the Cortex Access Platform, suitable for 1-3 Business processes the Cortex Launch Program includes:

  • Licence – Inclusive
  • Basic Services – Inclusive
  • Project Manager
  • Certified Cortex resources to work with your Subject Matter Experts

The program is a fixed-term, fixed-cost initiative to enable intelligent automation success.
