Who doesn’t want to do things faster, more safely and more efficiently?
Humans are great at many things and have over the years developed many useful skills, however it’s widely accepted that they are at risk of making errors, can only work for a certain number of hours at a time and are not always the best at learning on the job. This doesn’t make them the best candidates for all roles. Automating some business functions, particularly repetitive tasks, not only alleviates some of the concerns associated with human working practices, but can also increase efficiency, improve testing effectiveness and even make for a better customer experience.
This is not a debate about replacing humans with automation or robots. The focus here is on how automation can, for some tasks, significantly cut costs, improve performance, and at the same time, free up humans to add value in other areas of the business.
End-to-end automation can cut testing time by 97%
Enhancing the process to provide the best customer experience
We at Brickendon are of the firm opinion that the future of automation lies in collaboration. Automation, whether it’s in a support or development capacity, will always need to be programmed. This will require highly-skilled developers and software engineers to ensure the technology functions as required. Machine learning has come a long way over the past decade, but there is still a long way to go before robots can continually learn from their mistakes and correct their actions based on what has gone before.
