Panel Discussion

Intelligent Automation – the next stage of transformation to address government’s challenges

In an era of digital disruption, citizen expectations dictate new approaches to the business of government.  Faced with changing demographics and declining government workforce, legacy siloed systems and the need to demonstrate value in a cost-effective manner, governments need to take advantage of intelligent automation technologies to be more efficient, transparent and agile – while enhancing employee satisfaction and increasing citizen engagement.

Join us on June 11th  to engage in a panel discussion with two experts in Intelligent Automation;  Kirke Everson, the Government Lead for Intelligent Automation for KPMG in the US, and François Gaudreau, National Lead for Intelligent Automation for KPMG in Canada.  They will discuss the full spectrum of intelligent automation – from robotic process automation and bots, through to artificial intelligence and evidence based-learning, and its application to both the front and back office.  They will also address the specific benefits to government, the unique challenges around ethics and trust, labour and compliance, and provide a realistic perspective on return on investment.  With specific examples of early government adopters in the US, Kirke will take participants through the pain points and successful outcomes achieved.

Lunch will be served.

When: June 11, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Where: Alex Trebek Alumni Hall, 157 Séraphin-Marion, Ottawa ON.
