What can you learn from the Intelligent Automation Nordic Summit?

How Your Company Can Combine Robotics With AI To Remain Competitive Through This New Digital Evolution. Meet The Experts

There’re calling it the go-to event for automation professionals in Scandinavia, the Baltics and Northern Europe. Intelligent Automation Nordics: RPA & AI Summit 2018 is the leading automation event in the Nordic region. It is part of the wider Intelligent Automation series, with over 10 events worldwide, organized by IQPC.

The summit, due to begin on the 23 – 25 April at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark, will be in its second year of existence.

Global revenues from cognitive systems are predicted to surge past $47 billion in 2020, according to New IDC Spending Guide. Across the Nordics, organizations are ramping up Robotic Process Automation and looking to leverage it beyond the breakeven point, creating tangible returns. With this new technology comes a complex set of questions and no guidebook for success. How can you scale up your RPA to create greater business bene­fits?

Which processes will bring you the greatest returns? How can you set up a robust system that the entire business can trust? At the Intelligent Automation Nordic Summit, you will ­find out what constitutes best practice, taking on the lessons learned from 60+ industry thought leaders.

Influential Nordic organisations taking to the stage include Maersk, Skat, Danica Pension, Danske Bank, Nykredit, Orsted, Statoil, Stena Line, Ericsson, Carlsberg, Arla, Telenor, City of Helsinki and Lantmäteriet. Overall, 60 senior automation experts will be taking to the stage, leading 55 insight and thought-provoking sessions, from case studies to intimate interactive discussion groups.

Here’s what you can expect from the three-day summit;

  • Nordea speaking on combining cognitive systems with your robots to take automation to the next level
  • RPA and AI in the public sector: the Migri experience – the Finnish Immigration Service
  • DFDS on Smart data analytics to improve processes and increase revenue
