How do you fix this solution?
The easiest solution, it seems, would be to build or customize a system that does everything you need. As we know, new systems or customization of systems can be costly and can take a long time to implement, but it is ideal for seamless functionality.
The next most logical route is to find multiple systems that have the functionality that you need and integrate them. System integration works well and is an excellent long-term solution. However, it has its pros and cons with IT maintenance, data management, and cost-prohibitive from both a capital and operational expense.
The next step is to use automation to fill the gaps. In many cases, this is the goldilocks solution between cost, maintenance, functionality, and flexibility.
Most of the time, when you hear automation, people think RPA, but automation comes in many forms. Most business processes aim to collect, prepare, present, interpret, and act on data and automated through a mix of ETL, RPA, ML, and Visualization tools. Finding the right level of automation, the best combination of tools at the right cost, and the best overall solution for our clients is the goal of Thought Logic’s Intelligent Process Automation teams.
