Lifting the lid on Cognitive Automation

It’s all very well leaving bots to deal with structured data, but how do we take unstructured, ‘dark’ data and turn it into something actionable? Tim Ebbeck, SVP and MD of Automation Anywhere in A/NZ, lifts the lid on how Cognitive Automation tackles this challenge head on. He’ll explain how to create new efficiencies and improve the quality of business processes.


Tim Ebbeck of Automation Anywhere talks about Cognitive Automation – the conjunction between AI and Cognitive Computing. He’ll give you a practical and insightful view into how to make sense of unstructured, ‘dark’ data and the increasingly complex tasks that are outside the standard decision-making capabilities of our fellow bots.

He’ll reveal how to best deal with information that’s difficult to access, undigitised and unextractable and turn it into clear, actionable information so that your organisation:

  • Increases efficiency
  • Stays competitive
  • Improves decision making
  • Improves quality of the business
  • Stays compliant
  • Ensures customer loyalty


Automation Anywhere is the world leader in RPA and has built the most advanced Digital Workforce Platform of any vendor. Tim joined Automation Anywhere as SVP and MD for Australia and New Zealand in October 2018, bringing with him a wealth of experience in guiding multinationals and local enterprises through huge transformations.

His 30-year career for some of the world’s largest technology companies included MD of Oracle and Chief Executive of SAP where he saw customers automating core processes. He also witnessed the major automation gap that developed as processes were built that resulted in unnecessary and mundane human intervention.
