Join a TDWI analyst, a CDO and a Chief Architect in a discussion about how Data Automation affects working lives, colleague relationships and the work/life balance.

In this 60-minute webcast you will hear:

  • A CDO’s experience of how Data Automation has affected his team members
  • How the story differs through the eyes of a Chief Architect
  • How automation changes the way IT is viewed by the business
  • How automation affects the work/life balance of data teams

Technology is not meant to replace humans but to augment the way we work. Productivity and the business’ bottom line remain the priority, but while technology is advancing rapidly, our understanding of workplace happiness and work/life balance is only just starting to catch up. We are beginning to understand that working smart is more valuable than working long hours at a low level, as the repetition and longevity of manual techniques often lead to burnout and human error.

This webcast stimulate debate on an area less discussed in IT. Data Automation is a prime example of how technology not only increases our output but also changes our approach to the traditional working day. It can be the catalyst not only for quicker, more accurate BI, but for a holistic transformation of our working lives.

We often hear the technical message of how Data Automation allows us to generate thousands of lines of code in seconds, automate documentation and quickly spin up prototype architectures, but does this mean we work less hours and reduce our overall stress levels? Does it improve relationships with our colleagues? Hear the answers to all these questions and more.
