Meaningful Upskilling in Process Automation

The range of automation technologies is huge - Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Process Mining or Cloud Automation with iPaaS are just a few of them. The market for RPA and other intelligent automation solutions continues to grow rapidly at a compound annual growth rate of 40.6 percent, according to a recent study by Deloitte. Companies should equip their employees for the working world of tomorrow and retrain accordingly. To be able to automate successfully, people with the appropriate know-how are needed. According to a study by EY, up to 50 percent of initiated RPA projects fail - pure technology is only half the battle.

The secret to success: competence building and upskilling in Process Automation. Without a learning culture and in-depth knowledge, automation only scratches the surface and does not change a company in the long term. RPA developers, process mining analysts and others are in demand. We show you how good your career chances are as an automation expert and how you can optimally build up your skills.

Job Profiles of the Future

In order to have an overview of the possibilities of automation, it is important not to focus on just one technology, but to educate oneself holistically. Automation is cross-technology. Top academies of various software vendors, such as UiPath or Celonis, offer numerous workshops. You can also take courses at Udemy and start your own projects. The ONE automation job does not exist in this form; automation creates numerous new job profiles:

1. Automation Strategist

Automation Strategists manage automation. They are familiar with all business processes and know how to optimally combine technologies. They develop new, creative concept ideas and put them into practice.

In flexible online courses you will get to know various technologies, software and tools to start your own automation project. You don't need any in-depth technical knowledge, but can start directly and easily while working.

2. Automation Change Manager

Automation Change Managers support the departments in the transformation and communicate the new ideas to the teams. They connect the departments and the CoE and ensure acceptance within the company.

3. Automation Champion

Automation Champions implement automation in their respective department. They ensure that automation is optimized in the respective area, e.g. HR or Finance.

4. Automation Architects

Automation Architects focus on the necessary IT infrastructure and the costs of automation. In other words, they keep an eye on the technical establishment. In-depth IT understanding is required.

5. Automation Developer

The developer team has extensive knowledge of various automation tools, whether RPA or iPaaS, and puts the concepts into practice centrally.

Educate Yourself in a Holistic Way!

In order to be able to specialize in different directions, basic skills are important. We recommend, for example, that you continue your education at Celonis in the area of process mining, acquire RPA knowledge in our courses or at the UiPath Academy, build up BPM knowledge, e.g. at Udemy, and continue your education in the areas of change management and API / Cloud. Of course, these are only exemplary suggestions - find the right mix for you personally to be ideally positioned.
