Analytics for Business Users course

Recently, we have introduced a new course in Automation Academy®: “Analytics for Business Users.”

It’s designed specifically for businesspeople who want to learn how to leverage data to improve their automated processes and manage their digital workforce efficiently. This material would also benefit anyone who wants to understand how analytics can be used beyond basic monitoring and control.

Here, we’ll share our reasons for developing the course and benefits that our customers and partners will gain.

Why we created ‘Analytics for Business Users’

Many companies find it challenging to build a data-driven approach to business operations, including adopting automation. We want to raise awareness of and explain the role of business analytics in Intelligent Automation and demonstrate how it can be used to automate business processes with greater success.

Also:

  1. Analytics is one of the most underestimated and underused capabilities in automation. Automation industry experts agree it is a crucial feature, but companies often fail to integrate it in their digital workforce efficiently. 
  2. Analytics is key to ensuring continuous automation success. It helps to monitor employee activity, manage processes, troubleshoot technology, and learn about AutoML training progress. 
  3. Analytics is a crucial capability for the further development and expansion of automation, as it helps to control processes in a centralized interface.
