- Top 4 Reasons to Implement RPA
According to a recent Gartner survey, by 2022 90% of companies will have started implementing RPA. So why is an increasing number of businesses relying on the technology and should this be your next step towards accelerating your business growth? There are many benefits to consider and we’ve selected the top ones for you. More time for businesses to focus on expansion Can you imagine saving your finance department 25,000 hours of avoidable work? Gartner reports that it is possible to save this amount of time with RPA, while also saving $878,000 a year. Of course, you will need to select the right processes to automate in the first place. As a start, you need to get a buy-in from your internal stakeholders. To that end, work with them and identify the main pain points each department has and create an initial RPA action plan of no more than 7-10 steps to address them. Fast and long-term results on ROI Depending on the scale, complexity and exceptions of the process, your business should see a return on investment in 6 to 9 months after the RPA implementation. On the one hand, the time you free from manual processes is expected to have a direct positive impact on revenue. On the other hand, it will allow employees to adopt a more logical and strategic mindset. This is a valuable long-term benefit since managers can focus on building the skillset of their teams instead of hiring new people to get repetitive, mundane tasks done. Easy, seamless integrations One of the best things about RPA are its limitless customizations and the ability to be implemented for various solutions and technologies, such as document automation and invoice capture. Business Process Management (BPM) is another great example. While BPM is used for optimizing processes, paired with RPA it can fully automate them. It also allows for connecting legacy and new systems. Building internal trust Once employees realize that RPA does not pose a threat to their jobs but instead is likely to make them more enjoyable, they can reach their full professional potential by focusing on exciting new projects and developing new skills. RPA also boosts cross-team collaboration by stimulating teams to share ideas and best practices about optimizing processes. At the end of the day, RPA sparks discussions about the best ways to prioritize the unique demands from each department and this is a real game changer.

- Next Level DevOps Maturity and Data Security with Azure DevOps Server
Healthcare & Life Science Next Level DevOps Maturity and Data Security with Azure DevOps Server Home / Case Studies Success Story Our client, a leader in personalized healthcare, pharmaceuticals and diagnostics, needed а technology partner who would migrate their heavily customized Team Management Foundation Server (TFS) to a next generation development management system. Scalefocus identified the required functionalities of the future system and created a roadmap for improving the organization’s DevOps maturity. Our team performed the migration to Azure DevOps Server resulting in a fully unified workflow, ultra-secure storage of information and a future-ready approach to code and software development management. Full control over update rollouts Enacted DevOps best practices Created a fully unified workflow The Client Our client is a biotech company specializing in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics to solve today’s healthcare’s challenges through innovation and targeted therapy for patients. A pioneer in the industry, the client is a leading provider of in vitro diagnostics and treatments across different disease areas, including oncology, neuroscience, immunology, ophthalmology and infectious diseases. Since it was founded over a century ago, the company has helped millions of people across the globe and has been at the forefront of cancer treatment and research for the last 50 years. Our client’s focus is on improving patients’ lives through science that provides better medicines and diagnostics. The Solution Our client needed a technology partner to guide a major transformation initiative—moving away from Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server (TFS) to a next-generation development management system. The client needed the ability to allow their people, their hardware and their process to work together without compromising effectiveness. The outdated approach TFS offered in terms of managing code and software development used a central depository and the client felt their business needs would be better met with a system that uses a distributed depository. Scalefocus proposed a phased migration approach to achieving the business goals the client had set out. The initial stage focused on setting up the migration’s priorities by determining environment readiness and identifying current gaps. Our team conducted extensive interviews with stakeholders across the entire organization which were followed by the delivery of a roadmap for transitioning to the new system and maximizing its benefits long term. Once our team had concluded the best system to transition to was Azure DevOps Server, the client’s management team was fully onboard, and we then executed the strategy we had mapped out. Due to the handling of large volumes of confidential medical information and based on the client’s budgetary requirements, our team decided to proceed with Azure DevOps Server as opposed to Azure DevOps Services. This ‘closed network’ implementation offered a level of security unrivalled by Microsoft’s cloud-based Azure DevOps. Since the essence of the client’s business required certain information to be stored onsite, Azure DevOps Server was the best choice. The migration allows for full control of how and where data can be accessed. Whenever the client decides they need to take full advantage of Azure DevOps Services, the transition will be easy and seamless—our team made sure the information stored in Azure DevOps Server is cloud-ready and it can be transferred at any time. Results Scalefocus delivered a detailed TFS migration and a DevOps roadmap on time and on budget. The client, who is biotech pioneer, was missing business opportunities due to the lack of DevOps practices. To amend that, we recommend the necessary tooling and automated processes coordinated with the migration strategy set of recommendations. The new Azure DevOps Server system helps the client with the organization of the work process and code management, as well as with quick and automated software deployment. Scalefocus stepped in as a technology partner who knows the steps required, the pitfalls and the tools that best match the needs of the client who now takes full advantage of tall that an advanced development management system like Azure DevOps offers. Up-to-date development management system implementing the current SDLC A fully unified workflow allowing faster software delivery and deployment Eliminated the need to synch data: Azure DevOps Server as the single source of truth Next level DevOps maturity that was non-existent in the client’s entire infrastructure Ability to create, share and consume useful code in the form of packages Full control over update rollouts and unrivalled levels of security Recommended broader DevOps best practices and organizational structure Defined per-program and cross-program metrics and reporting Our Work We have a global client base that includes Fortune 500 companies, innovative startups and industry leaders in Information Technology, E-Commerce, Insurance, Healthcare, Finance and Energy & Utilities.
