|Automation and Digital Labor: ISG Executive Insights

Automation and AI are everywhere. It's hard not to encounter an opinion piece about how "digital labor" will fundamentally change the nature of knowledge work. What's missing in this conversation is precisely which roles enterprise leaders need to automate, and what they are already automating today. In this session, we'll examine recent research into how automation is changing enterprise buyer plans, and how this, in turn, is affecting the IT and business services markets. We also will discuss how you can get ahead by applying some of the best practices learned from early adopters.
