Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.¹
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps. Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.

In the past, B2B transactions occurred in face-to-face meetings as a sales professional worked a product demo, business luncheon, or boardroom presentation to influence a customer – and close the deal. Today, however, B2B stakeholders perform much of their product and service research online. In fact, 93 percent of B2B buying starts with online searching, according to a Pinpoint Market Research study. This research occurs long before a customer engages with sales.
As your prospects research and evaluate your offerings, they leave behind valuable clues to their intent. Understanding these clues – cracking the code – can help you tailor your messages to them, thereby providing them a more tailored, relevant experience. As a result, business-savvy marketing and sales departments have embraced marketing automation platforms, so their respective teams can work together on one common platform, reach B2B customers online, and drive revenue.

A security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform is a valuable tool for organizations who have made appropriate investments in their security operations processes. This recent research from Gartner looks at the necessary preparations that security leaders need to make so that the deployment of a SOAR solution will improve the efficiency of their incident response and security operations teams.

Commitment to Automation
Digital transformation requires a focus on
agility, innovation, and the end customer; as
well as for infrastructure leaders to strike deeper
partnerships with lines of business leaders
around business outcomes they care about.
AP automation is often described as low hanging fruit in the
garden of digital transformation. And for a good reason – the
barrier to entry is impressively low in terms of both cost and
effort needed to get up and running, particularly in comparison
to the implementation projects for other business applications.
Despite that fact, the value provided from AP automation is
comparably high. For such an easy implementation, the benefits
reach throughout an organization, beyond the walls of the AP
department, and are near-immediate from day one of using the
Standard benefits include:
- Immediate value from day one with an expected ROI within the first year
- Up to 95% truly touchless invoice processing with access to real-time cloud data for benchmarking and reporting
- Easy access to financial data, such as cash flow & accrual reporting, with full visibility and control of the AP process
This guide will help you kick-start your AP automation project by
defining the 6 steps to build a solid business case and gain the
internal approvals needed to get started.
