What are you doing to position yourself for the future? As a finance professional, we should all be trying to get a piece of the billions that will be spent by companies on the coming Digital Finance Transformation.
Interesting read on Robotics Process Automation. I would recommend being skeptical of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Typically, they are developed and monitored by the group (in some cases consultants!) who automated the process which leads to inflated results. Also you do not have to pay for a vendor like Automation Anywhere or UiPath – there are open source options out there can be built to fit your needs – check out the articles on Sikuli.
Unfortunately, the problems listed in this article impact more than just Data Scientists. A lot of Digital Finance pioneers run into the same problems listed whether it be RPA or visualization.
