So what is RPA?
Robotic Automation Process, or RPA, involves using robot software where the primary aim is to interact with a set of different systems in the same way a human would. These robots are mainly programmed to carry out a number of repetitive tasks that require little complex decision making. RPA solutions have been developed to connect to a company’s internal, or external, interfaces.
With the first flying cars currently being prototyped and the imminent arrival of aviation drones, which will become part of low-cost and fare-cost airlines’ fleets, it is safe to say that air traffic management is brimming with potential for innovation. Continue reading
Compared with online banks that have already started paving the way, traditional banks are lagging behind when it comes down to new ways of working. Several factors, such as an increasingly competitive environment (online banks cropping up left, right and centre, as well as new fintechs and regtechs, for instance), Generation Y arriving on the employment scene and the changing face of today’s customers, are all coming together to make the banking landscape a complex one. Brick and mortar banks are forced to undergo a total transformation. Continue reading
Digital technology is changing every facet of our lives, from ordering our groceries online, to communicating with customers, and even how we interact with family and friends.

In today’s world of work, it is simply impossible to avoid knowledge acquisition. For employees, the need for knowledge has become a constant throughout their professional lifetime. Yet employees also have increasingly less time to spend on learning and maintaining their knowledge, skills, and interpersonal skills. Moreover, it is often difficult to get hold of the materials needed for training and practice, either because this is costly or simply unavailable to employers. In this context, simulation can be seen as an alternative worth exploring. But to be beneficial, simulation technology must be used adequately and at the best moment during the learning pathway.

Digital technologies can personalise our daily experiences, from the tailored newsfeeds we receive on our smartphones to suggested workouts we get from online personal trainers. The aviation industry is well aware of the potential such technologies hold and is using them to personalise their customers’ travel experience. Continue reading
“There has never been a time when so many civil aircraft were produced in France as today,” emphasized Marwan Lahoud, President of Gifas (The French Aerospace Industries Association), upon the presentation of the sector’s 2016 results – and this is a trend that is repeated on an international scale.

The face of bank services and they way we use them is changing. Nowadays, customers are showing signs of mistrust in traditional banking institutions. Banks are empty. Customers want tailored services and above all, they want them now. These changes all boil down to the digitalisation of banking services. Traditional French banks caught on to this fifteen years ago and have all launched, bought out or taken a subsidiary online bank. To be able to quickly and easily adapt to changes in the market, banks are duty-bound to create new production methods that are customer and not product focused. Online banks represent, for traditional banks, an opportunity to offer innovative services through new ways of working. Scroll down for a spotlight on activity drivers and their impacts.

Amongst all the latest technologies in computer vision, machine learning, robotic process automation and natural language processing, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is moving forward at full steam ahead. Thanks to AI, say goodbye to spending too much time on single, time-consuming activities. With its help, company employees can improve their performance and decisions. If we know that, now, AI is improving our efficiency and jobs in the short and long term, then the question we need to ask is this: what are best ways of understanding AI? Simply put, by detecting the major plus points of AI to reveal all its benefits, and by knowing how to optimise our usage. Continue reading
