Conference Highlights

The “great debate” | How automation impacts jobs

Wolfgang Platz, Tricentis, Jeff Wilkinson, Accenture & Ramesh Pai, Wipro

In polite conversation moderated by Wayne Ariola, technologists focus on how automation improves employee morale by relieving workers from boring, repetitive tasks. They paint the picture of a not-so-distant future where automation magically completes that work that everyone dreads, allowing humans to focus on creative, interesting, and value-added tasks. But is this too optimistic? If you ask a CFO about why they are investing in automation, it’s clear that the ROI is driven by “productivity “ and ultimately the reduction of headcount—not employee happiness.

It’s time to take an honest look at the true impact that automation has on the workforce. This all-star panel will explore questions such as:

  • Does automation truly replace jobs—or does it help the worker achieve more?
  • If jobs are truly shifted, what do these jobs look like?
  • How can you work with (or without) automation to avoid becoming obsolete?
  • What can you do now to prepare for the shift?
