Review of the EAMKON 2020

In the context of the EAMKON conference of this year, which took place from 29.9. to 01.10.2020 in Stuttgart, CTI Consulting GmbH was repeatedly represented with a lecture. Dr. Dietmar Gerlach, Head of IT Management Consulting, presented the topic “RPA as a strategic design option of Enterprise Architecture Management”.

The presentation addressed the growing danger that Robotic Process Automation (RPA) could prove to be a mortgage for enterprise architectures if enterprise architects do not find a suitable answer to this problem in the form of effective governance.

The lecture will highlight the opportunities and risks of the topic, but will also consider and present effective measures to mitigate the risks. Using a procedural model, the presentation will also address how mistakes can be avoided when introducing RPAs in an enterprise. The process model is presented and explained by means of a practical use case (integration of a travel expense accounting system with Datev) and the business benefits are described.

The presentation was very well received by the audience, some of whom were present in the auditorium, and some of whom listened to the presentation via live stream. The participants found themselves well represented by the statements made and were able to confirm them based on their own experiences.

The following reactions were given by the participants to the lecture:

– “Very good presentation in terms of content!

– “Interesting lecture from the practice of a consulting firm.

– “Great topic”

– “Round Lecture”
