Robotic Process Automation — Latest Trends and How to Boost Productivity

Digital technologies have taken today’s market into a whole new level because of evolving technologies of the past few years into automation and machine learning.

The top things that make any enterprise of today a success story are cost-efficient, customer success, and employee satisfaction simultaneously along with better business outcome in the competitive market. And thanks to the power of technology, enterprises can smoothly achieve all of these with the help of Digital Transformation.

That’s where Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) comes in. IPA is the technology that combines redesigned fundamentals of robotic process automation and machine learning. IPA mimics humans making it better than any usual automation technology in the market. The technology helps the employees by removing repetitive, replicable, and routine tasks. And since it reduces ‘human mistakes’, it radically improves customers experience by simplifying interactions and making it more productive.

The two core technology of IPA are Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Machine Learning (AI).

With IPA, robots can replace repetitive manual clicks (RPA) and make intelligent decisions (AI) which in turn will increase productivity (smart workflow) and increase customer success by minimizing human error and smart digital interactions.

What is Robotics Process Automation and why is it most effective?

RPA is an artificial intelligence (AI) technology that is used to create software robots that use software interface to mimic human interaction. RPA uses software interfaces with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) methodologies to perform complex operations that are human-like.

In 2018 RPA technology is in the process of developing advanced AI software bots that can process simple tasks and recognize images and speech via the implementation of cognitive reasoning. Initially adopted by financial institutions and banks, RPA technologies today have found use in a wide array of industries.

One of the key differences, however, between RPA and other forms of automation is its ability to imitate a human user that allows it to be implemented on existing processes, thereby, reducing development time and a wide range of business activities.

How RPA boosts productivity?

  • RPA was not introduced to replace humans, but to assist and ease repetitive tasks. It benefits the productivity of employees and helps them immensely.
  • The technology assists employees across any location across the globe with the help of the cloud. This works in favor of today’s globalized market. It minimizes interactions and training time. It increases work efficiency.
  • RPA allows people with various degree of technical knowledge and even who lack it to use the processes with ease. Manual, error-prone processes can reduce the day-to-day productivity of any business and cause disruptions for your customers. RPA helps streamline the process with customized frameworks.
  • All the IPA technologies including RPA works great for back-office process in various industries.  It can be deployed in call centers, banking processes, data entry, and filing that allow employers to streamline their operations to minimize human error and increase efficiency. It works wonders with transactional data and repetitive entries.
A digital technology that can do the work of multiple human workers, faster and more efficiently, minus human errors, is easily the best thing for any enterprise and market.

What’s more! It allows time for employees to give more time to not only customers but also leaves the organization with more time for employee engagement. It is still in its initial stage and yet by RPA taking care of tedious, repeatable, and monotonous tasks, organizations that have invested in RPA technology have already started reaping benefits of cost-cutting, productivity, and employee and customer experience. Happy customers, satisfied employees, reduced cost and increased productivity all because of smart software!

RPA software is customized and any technology that can intelligently work alongside human, assist remotely will benefit the organization, almost instantly. Since RPA is a relatively new technology it is important to invest in the right place and understand exactly what you want with the automation with the help of a good process map. It will reduce trial and errors and help in smooth implementation resulting in successful digital transformation and better business outcome.

Suicidal Mama And The Unkind Society

“Aah! the joys and beauty of motherhood!! But what about the struggles and the ugly reality that a lot of women experience? We should talk about that too.” [….click to read the full post]

NOTE: This is a suicide awareness post. If you experience suicidal thoughts, the following post could be potentially triggering. You can contact the suicide crisis lines in your country here: List of suicide crisis lines.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and today (Sept 10) is International Suicide Prevention Awareness Day. And I wanted to take this time to talk about a group we often forget to include when we discuss the problem of suicide and about mental health — MOTHERS.

Mostly because Postpartum Depression, Postpartum Psychosis and the subsequent Suicidal Tendencies are topics that people want to stay as far away as possible. Instead, we prefer to think that motherhood (especially for new mothers) is a bed of roses and that mothers can’t possibly be sad, let alone — suicidal — because they have a beautiful child and so much to be happy about! Isn’t it? And we prefer not to break that warm bubble of ours.

Aah! the joys and beauty of motherhood!! But what about the struggles and the ugly reality that a lot of women experience? We should talk about that too.

As a society, we like to think that we celebrate motherhood and mothers. We like to think of them as Goddesses that have to be perfect, but the Goddesses that we are unkind to. There are so many things that are problematic with us, as a society, and how we treat mothers. Especially mothers struggling with mental and physical health post-childbirth. We simply let women go through it all alone and we constantly judge them if they stumble.  We do not run to pick them up, instead, we run to mock them!

We aren’t appreciative enough of the mental, emotional and physical struggles that mothers go through while raising the child(ren). It is even worse if the woman suffers from mental health issues like depression, postpartum depression/psychosis, anxiety, suicidal tendencies, etc. We more often than not — as a family and society — assume that they will automatically know it all, and are automatically wired to bond with the child and experience maternal feelings. That she can and should balance her individual life, motherhood and work all by herself.

We put the new mother on the road to failure by putting them on a pedestal and assume she will automatically have everything under control. And in case she doesn’t, then she is a bad mother!

In reality, we force her to struggle to attain an unrealistic image of a woman in society, and an unrealistic image of a mother that she should have all things in control. And when she struggles to do so…we fail to support her, we proceed to shame her. We discard our duty as a family and as a society to help her.

A lot of time we force women to bear a child – against her will • despite her being mentally, emotionally and physically not ready — to take on that responsibility. We force her to become a mother and shame her for not wanting to become one. We coerce her to do something so drastic that will forever change not only her life but also her mental and physical state for the worse in case she isn’t ready for it. And we validate our bullying sexist behavior by calling it ‘looking out for the family.’ However, who is looking out for the woman who is forced to become mama even when they aren’t prepared? Who is even looking out for the woman who happily becomes a mama and then discovers how unprepared she is?


We are mere mortal human beings and while we continue to mistreat our women or leave them to struggle on their own, especially as mothers — we also assume them to be perfect Goddesses. But a Goddess that everyone abandons, and disrespects; yet is to continue performing her duties.

What we need is to take a pause, take off our rose-colored glasses and understand the reality and struggles of mothers, and help them as a society… instead of leaving them to struggle on their own between suicidal thoughts and handling a baby. Because let’s be real, raising a child isn’t easy, nor it is possible to have everything under control when it comes to motherhood. The mental, emotional and physical toll it takes on the woman is a harsh reality we need to understand sooner — we owe it to our women and mothers. And it is time to discard the shame out of mental illnesses and encourage people to seek help.

Because, people who struggle with mental health issues eventually breakdown when things get too much, and when a child is involved – the stakes are higher, the situation is much more precarious and is even a more dangerous situation — for both the mother and her child.

The truth is that women who already suffer from one or multiple mental health conditions (including suicidal tendencies) they all run an almost certain risk of struggling and suffering mentally post-childbirth and while raising the child. And the sooner we understand this and accept this truth, instead of forcing an unreal image of a mother who has it all under control, the better it is for us as a society to help our mamas heal. It will even destigmatize seeking help by mothers when they need it.

I read this beautiful and heartbreaking piece by Meghan Hart  in her post: To the Suicidal Mama Fighting to Stay Alive for Her Kids
She wrote Fellow Mama, I see you lying there in bed, trying to will yourself to get up. I know some part of you might wish you hadn’t woken up this morning – that you could fade away into nothingness because it seems a hell of a lot better than dealing with the demons you fight off daily in your head. I recognize that question in your eyes: “Is this life really worth all the effort?”

And she concluded it perfectly by writing “I see you, mama, fighting against all odds because your children need you. I see you struggle and I see you persevere because there is nothing more powerful than your will to protect your kids. They don’t know it yet, but their mom is a warrior, a queen, a saint, a testament to the unyielding power of love. Yes, people may judge you because you haven’t changed your clothes in three days or they hear you crying to yourself in the bathroom stall or they disagree with the way you parent your kids, but I’m here to tell you, none of that matters. It doesn’t matter because you showed up and you loved your kids and that’s enough. Let that be enough“.

Yes, let that be enough.
Others can judge you mama, but they do not know the invisible fight you win daily. And they probably will never know or understand. But if you are reading this and are struggling with suicidal thoughts It is okay to feel this way.
The fact that you fight it and carry on living through it all makes you much stronger than you might feel on most days. But you are. You are strong, amazing and badass. And I see it and your child will see it too, when they are older enough to understand. They will learn from the strength that their mama displayed daily and the unconditional love that you give them with every beating of your heart. They will learn from your perseverance.

Whenever you feel that you aren’t enough, remember that we aren’t supposed to be perfect, we aren’t supposed to have our shit figured out all the time. We are only human after all.

And so I am grateful to my mother and every other woman who suffers from mental health issues and struggles daily, yet continues to exist and survive for the sake of their children. I am sorry that this society continues to fail you, but don’t be ashamed to seek help and therapy. Don’t be ashamed of feeling what you are feeling. And it is okay to struggle… some days more than the other. But hang in there!

Because, mama, you are a freaking badass warrior.

XOXO ♡

Take Accountability

Your suffering doesn’t end until you take full accountability of your actions. Karma doesn’t stop spinning just because you say — “sorry”. [….click to read the full post]

Your suffering doesn’t end until you take full accountability of your actions.

Karma doesn’t stop spinning just because you say — “sorry”.
Your penance is for you to cleanse your soul, and not to avoid Karma.
Your repentance isn’t truly done unless you fully accept your actions and accept your punishment.
The guilt you may feel for your actions is nothing compared to the hurt and subsequent trauma you unleash on the other person.
So, the moment you start giving excuses for your actions or start to blame the victim/survivor of your hurt, the cycle of Karma backtracks and starts to spin against you again.
The universe will keep coming back at you until you learn your lesson and finish your punishment.

You can fool your conscience, but not the universe.

XOXO ♡

Forgiveness is a process

This post is about forgiveness and why it shouldn’t be an entitlement to ease the guilt of the person who caused the hurt, but a process for the person who was wronged instead. And if or not forgiveness is important/necessary at all, to heal!

This post is about moving on. It talks about the remnants of our past and the impact it continues to have in our lives. 

You Call Me Weak

“But you, my dearest what are you then?” [….click to read the full post]

Written by @fionadiaries | Art attribute: Anastasia Suvorova

You came into my life with the sweetness of honey and promised me the comfort and respect that I deserved. To see me disrespected and in pain, you said it hurt you and made you so angry.

You promised me forever flowing emotions and a love that broke my old chains and swept me and drowned me and saved me into a relentless storm. All at the same time.

You promised me forever. And instead, you mess up my head. And you call me weak !?

No. You are.

At least I stand up to how I felt and continue to stay in the middle of that storm. Even when I am left alone sobbing sometimes, where you promised me that you will fight for us, you will stand by me. Yet you leave me alone.

It is not weak to try to hold on to love, despite everything. What is weak is to break the heart of the one person you promised exactly never to do so. To break the heart of one person who has loved you despite everything. And then do just that, and still assume that you deserve true love.

I am not weak. You are.

My chains are made of love, and eyes filled with a hope of a happy ending. Yours are made of lies and deceit.

A tongue wrapped with false promises, and actions causing me a never-ending heartbreak.

Maybe I am weak if love makes people just that. But you, my dearest what are you then?

Certainly not any stronger for lighting fire inside my heart, my mind, and my entire life. And then walking over the ashes like nothing so intense ever happened!

You criticize me for sticking up to the person I was with, in my past, despite everything that was fucked up. Funny thing is am I not doing exactly the same for you?

I stick to people when they say they love me. I fight for that love that fills my soul. I fight till I have nothing left inside of me, and then give some more. That’s what I do when I love. That’s what I am doing when I am loving you.
Giving you all.

That is what love is. Not just forever filled with happiness, but some tears too. And if I am weak to stay and fight, aren’t you a coward to run and hide?

…and you thought I live in denial; you call me weak!

No, my dearest. That…you are.

XOXO
