About the session

Automating tasks such as data cleansing, data integration, and data analytics reduce manual intervention, enhance efficiency, and improve data quality - but will also require attention to maintaining consistent data standards across organisations, and a steep learning curve for staff when it comes to understanding new workflows.

  1. Data Quality Assurance: Automating data management can greatly improve data quality by reducing manual errors. It can also provide more consistency in the data processing workflows. How does your department currently handle data quality assurance - and how frequently does your department encounter issues with data quality?
  2. Real-time Data Processing: With automation, data can be processed and analysed in real-time, offering immediate insights that can be acted upon promptly. However the shift from batch processing to real-time processing might require significant changes in workflow and potentially a culture change within departments. How would the introduction of real-time data processing benefit your current workflows and service delivery?
  3. Data Integration: Automated systems can efficiently integrate data from different sources, allowing for a more holistic view and better cross-departmental insights. How is data integration currently handled in your organisation, and are there any bottlenecks, inefficiencies, or error-prone steps in these processes that might benefit from automation?
