In this digital-oriented world, hackers are evolving in parallel to technological advancements. Fortunately, engineers, mathematician and physicists are simultaneously working on innovative concepts that harness the progression of classical methods. New devices are utilizing principles of quantum physics and deploying sophisticated and powerful algorithms for safe communication.

What is cryptography? 

Cryptography is a means of securing data and information to dodge malicious hackers. Thanks to cryptographic methods, everything from web conferences to individual browsing history remain privileged and safe. Data are protected using  algorithms that require a unique key for decryption and encryption. Utilization of the same private key, i.e. a specific string of bits for decryption and encryption, is called symmetric cryptography. Utilization of public keys for encryption and private keys for decryption — each of which are created by algorithm-fueled random number generators — is called asymmetrical cryptography. 

Genuine randomness is considered unachievable by purely classical means, but can be accomplished with the added application of quantum physics.

Quantum key distribution 

There are two methods by which large-scale quantum and classical computers can obscure private information. 

Quantum key distribution (QKD) is a quantum cryptographic primitive designed to generate unbreakable keys. QKD ensures key agreement, including well-known BB84 and E91 algorithms. In 2017, a Chinese team successfully demonstrated that satellites can perform safe and secure communications with the help of symmetrical cryptography and QKD. 

Still, it’s clear that QKD alone can’t satisfy all protection requirements, but there are other mechanisms for security enhancement by utilizing “quantum-safe” encryption algorithms based on solving mathematical problems instead of laws of quantum physics.

An optimistic view of quantum-computing obstacles 

The most immediate challenge is accomplishing the most sufficient number of fault-tolerant qubits to boost quantum computing’s computational promises. such as , , and Honeywell are taking this problem under consideration and investing in it to come up with a solid solution. 

Currently, quantum computers are programmed for individual quantum logic gates. This might be acceptable for small-scale quantum computers, but less so once we come across a large number of qubits. Organizations such as IBM and Classiq are developing more and more abstract layers in the programming stack, allowing developers to nurture incredible and powerful quantum applications to provide solutions to real-world problems. 

For the implementation of complex problems including error-correction schemes, organizations need to prove that they can control numerous qubits. This control must have low latency and it must come from adaptive-feedback control circuits based on CMOS. Ultimately, the issue of “fan-out” must be addressed. The question that needs to be answered is how to pace up a number of qubits within a quantum chip. Multiple lasers or control wires are currently required, but it’s hard to see how we can develop multiple qubit chips with millions of wires connected to the circuit board or coming out of the cryogenic measurement chamber.  

Applying quantum computing to cybersecurity 

In recent years, researchers and analysts have been striving for the development of quantum-safe encryption. According to American Scientist, the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology is presently evaluating 69 new methods known as “post-quantum cryptography,” or PQC. Quantum computing offers an eminent, potential solution to cybersecurity and encryption threats. Any security-forward organization ought to develop an understanding of crypto agility.

Quantum revolution is uncertain. While the intense impact of extensive fault-tolerant quantum computers may be far off, near-time quantum computers still present enormous advantages in enhancing levels of communication privacy and security. All organizations must consider developing innovative strategies around the long-term benefits and risks of quantum technology and computing, and be ready for the forthcoming quantum revolution.

Demand for machine learning is skyrocketing. This growth is driven not only by “middle adopters” recognizing the vast potential of machine learning after watching early adopters benefit from its use, but by steady improvements in machine-learning itself. It may be too early to say with certainty that machine learning develops according to a predictable framework like Moore’s Law, the famous precept about power that has borne out for nearly 50 years and only recently began to show signs of strain. But the industry is clearly on a fast track.

As machine-learning algorithms grow smarter and more organizations come around to the idea of integrating this powerful technology into their processes, it’s high time your enterprise thought about putting machine learning to work, too.

First, consider the benefits and costs. It’s quite likely that your could leverage at least one of these five reasons to employ machine learning, whether it’s taming apparently infinite amounts of unstructured data or finally personalizing your .

Related: Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to Revolutionize the World of Art and Creativity

1. Taming vast unstructured data with limited resources

One of the best-known use cases for machine learning is processing data sets too large for traditional data crunching methods to handle. This is increasingly important as data becomes easier to generate, collect and access, especially for smaller B2C enterprises that often deal with more transaction and customer data than they can manage with limited resources.

How you use machine learning to process and “tame” your data will depend on what you hope to get from that data. Do you want help making more informed product development decisions? To better market to your customers? To acquire new customers? To analyze internal processes that could be improved? Machine learning can help with all these problems and more.

2. Automating routine tasks 

The original promise of machine learning was efficiency. Even as its uses have expanded beyond mere , this remains a core function and one of the most commercially viable use cases. Using machine learning to automate routine tasks, save time and manage resources more effectively has a very attractive paid of side effects for enterprises that do it effectively: reducing expenses and boosting net income.

The list of tasks that machine learning can automate is long. As with data processing, how you use machine learning for process automation will depend on which functions exert the greatest drag on your time and resources.

Need ideas? Machine learning has shown encouraging real-world outcomes when used to automate data classification, report generation, IT threat monitoring, loss and fraud prevention and internal auditing. But the possibilities are truly endless.

3. Improving marketing personalization and efficiency

Machine learning is a powerful force multiplier in marketing campaigns, enabling virtually endless messaging and buyer-profile permutations, unlocking the gate to fully personalized marketing without demanding an army of copywriters or publicity agents.

What’s especially encouraging for smaller businesses without much marketing expertise is that machine learning’s potential is baked into the top everyday digital-advertising platforms, namely Facebook and Google. You don’t have to train your own algorithms to use this technology in your next microtargeting campaign.

4. Addressing business trends 

Machine learning has also proven its worth in detecting trends in large data sets. These trends are often too subtle for humans to tease out, or perhaps the data sets are simply too large for “dumb” programs to process effectively.

Whatever the reason for machine learning’s success in this space, the potential benefits are clear as day. For example, many small and midsize enterprises use machine learning technology to predict and reduce customer churn, looking for signs that customers are considering competitors and trigger retention processes with higher probabilities of success.

Elsewhere, companies of all sizes are getting more comfortable integrating machine learning into their hiring processes. By reinforcing existing biases in human-led hiring and promotion, earlier-generation algorithms did more harm than good, but newer models are able to counteract implicit bias and increase the chances of equitable outcomes.

5. Accelerating research cycles

A machine-learning unleashed in an R&D department is like an army of super-smart lab assistants. As more and more enterprises discover just what machine learning is capable of in and out of the lab, they’re feeling more confident about using it to eliminate some of the frustrating trial-and-error that lengthens research cycles and increases development costs. Machine learning won’t replace R&D experts anytime soon, but it does appear to empower them to use their time more effectively. More and better innovations could result.

Related: Develop a Basic Understanding of Machine Learning With These Courses

If the experience of competitor businesses that have already deployed machine learning to great effect is any guide for your own experience, the answer to this question is a resounding yes.

The more interesting question is how you choose to make machine learning work for your businesses. This prompts another question, around what operational and structural changes your machine learning processes will bring. These changes, up to and including reducing headcounts in redundant roles or winding up entire lines of business, could be painful in the short run even as they strengthen your enterprise for the long haul.

Like all great innovations that increase operational efficiency and eliminate low-value work, machine learning does not benefit everyone equally. It’s up to the humans in charge of these algorithms to make the transition as orderly and painless as possible. It seems there are some things machine learning can’t yet do … yet.

If the numbers are any indication, you might think and voice assistants were poised to take over the world. Since the start of the pandemic, nearly a quarter of businesses have increased their spending on , and 75 percent plan to continue or launch new initiatives post-pandemic. Global spending on AI is expected to double by 2024.

AI is quickly becoming a cornerstone of especially, but is mixed. Fifty percent of customers believe chatbots and VAs make it harder to resolve an issue, but 37% say they’d prefer to get immediate help from a bot than wait on a human. AI might be growing at an unprecedented pace, but that growth will only continue as long as the tools enhance — rather than detract from — the .

Forward-thinking companies understand that AI is only worth implementing if it makes the customer experience better. Here are four CX-friendly ways you can incorporate AI.


1. Use AI to enhance the shopping experience

As becomes more competitive, brands are turning to AI to enhance the quality of their experience. pioneered the use of AI to provide tailored purchase recommendations with its “Customers Also Bought” section. It also uses AI to adjust its pricing so that it’s always competitive. 

These innovations don’t just drive more . Personalized recommendations create a more pleasurable shopping experience, and consistently low prices provide a layer of comfort. Customers know they’re bound to find something they like at a reasonable price.

But aren’t just being judged on price and personalization; consumers also expect them to be responsive. Research shows that consumers prefer to interact with a in real time while making a purchase, much like interacting with a sales associate in a brick-and-mortar store. 

By adding automated chat functionality to your store, you can help your customers find answers to their questions while they’re placing an order. This gives the impression that your brand is always there for them, even during a late-night shopping binge.

2. Help customers resolve problems faster

Customers don’t just expect instant gratification when making a purchase; they also expect lightning-fast customer support. In a recent survey, more than half of respondents said the most frustrating aspect of customer service was the slow response time or waiting on hold. Today, 90% of consumers say getting an immediate response to a customer-service question is “important” or “very important.”

One advantage to chatbots is that they are available to assist your customers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They can help answer frequently asked questions, point customers to helpful articles or initiate a return. This doesn’t just reduce labor costs; it actually helps your customers resolve issues faster.

Take State Farm, for instance. The company has always relied on an army of human agents, but it’s now using AI to help policyholders process claims more quickly. If a policyholder gets in a car accident on a holiday or weekend, he can use the app to start the claims process. A chatbot gathers all relevant information, and the customer can get his vehicle repaired sooner.

3. Use sentiment analysis to analyze customer feedback

When an agent is juggling hundreds of customer messages each day, it can be difficult to know which ones to prioritize and escalate. But sentiment analysis can help agents gauge the urgency of a customer inquiry by tagging messages as “frustrated,” “angry” or “excited.”

Two-thirds of companies say sentiment analysis helps reduce the cost of customer service, and 72% say it improves CX. Clothing retailer began running sentiment analysis on its CX data back in 2019 to close the customer feedback loop. You can incorporate sentiment analysis at any stage of the customer journey and use those insights to improve the customer experience.

4. Use AI as a customer-service assistant

While AI tools are great at fielding straightforward customer questions and performing simple tasks, more complex issues are still best handled by people. In these cases, AI can be useful in assisting human agents. AI tools can generate support tickets and call summaries while the agent is on the call. Taking over these tasks allows the agent to focus all their attention on helping the customer.

In other cases, a chatbot can serve as a customer concierge. Chatbots can help with simple tasks such as updating a customer’s contact information, placing an order or scheduling a service call — all without making the customer wait on hold.

These cases exemplify the hybrid human-AI approach contact center solution Five9 recommends. The company has added a suite of AI-based products to its lineup that it’s dubbed “Practical AI.” Practical AI should deliver tangible business outcomes (like shorter call times) while reducing the potential for customer frustration, thanks to its use of human fail-safes. The goal is not to replace human agents, but to help agents deliver a better CX.

With brands investing so heavily in AI, it looks as though it’s here to stay. But consumers won’t tolerate a bad customer experience, whether it comes from a human or a bot. You can only afford to offload tasks to bots if it actually improves your CX. That should be your litmus test for implementing any new piece of technology.

With rapidly rising technology becoming more a part of everyday life, businesses now have a plethora of options when it comes to what tech to use as more systems are automated. But questions remain. Automation, what is it good for? Is automation a good idea for all businesses? What limitations are there?

Let’s talk…

Inga Latham, Chief Product Officer, SiteMinder

Despite common misconceptions that automation will take jobs away, in the service-led hotel and travel sectors, automation will enable better customer experiences and standards of customer service than ever before. Having the right automation technologies in place can make for shorter wait times at check-in counters, deeper understanding of customers’ needs before they have engaged in a phone call enquiry, and faster changes to bookings and payment information so staff can get on with delivering the level of service that customers want and need. For a business’ bottom line, automation is also a critical enabler of new revenue streams.

When investing in this technology for the first time or in new ways, it will be challenging to know where to start. It’s important to not get distracted by whatever happens to be ‘new and shiny’ and instead have clear goals for automating your business that align with the overall digital transformation strategy. Prioritise end-to-end technology platforms for ease of vendor management and overall business efficiency.  

Mike Featherstone, Managing Director, ANZ & APAC, Pluralsight

Automation in Australian workplaces continues to grow with new applications for machine learning and artificial intelligence being deployed every month. Security is just one of the areas that stand to benefit from this trend. With over 111 billion lines of code written every year, automation of many security measures is required to deliver timely rollouts while ensuring that unknown threats are not introduced into the systems. Processes including vulnerability scanning have been the first to see this new wave of innovation.

However, no singular tool can check every piece of code for every conceivable problem. While automatic tools can be developed to catch a lot of potential issues, tech proficient talent still need to architect the toolset and interpret the results. Ultimately, cybersecurity still requires human oversight to counter a human-led threat. Tools and automation definitely have a role to play, but ongoing technology upskilling for developers must remain a priority. This will allow the prioritisation of complex problems, knowing the basics are taken care of by security-conscious software developers creating higher quality, secure code.

Pieter Danhieux, CEO and Co-Founder, Secure Code Warrior


Cybersecurity is a growing challenge in our economy as every business increases its reliance on technology. The sheer volume of code across hundreds of tech properties necessitates the automation of some areas of cybersecurity to ensure we do not fall behind.

However, the human element cannot be replaced. Human action is required to counter a human-driven threat. No single approach will mitigate every possible gap in security so to tackle this challenge we need to incorporate security thinking into every step of the software development process.

Upskilling developers to mitigate against well-known security bugs early in the development process can reduce the need for patches down the line. In conjunction, automated tools can help stretched security teams address simple issues while they focus on identifying new gaps and threat vectors. The creation of high quality, secure code requires developers and AppSec teams to work together to counter known and new challenges.

Jason Toshack, General Manager ANZ, Oracle NetSuite

Technology is evolving at a breakneck pace, so it’s less a question of what can be automated, but rather, what should be automated.

In most instances, customers still prefer speaking with a human, especially if they are troubleshooting something particularly sensitive or complicated. Having been in sales roles for more than 20 years, I have yet to find a sales rep who enjoys admin tasks. Cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) solutions can automate tasks like quote and order management, while also automating marketing communications, which in turn lets your sales team focus on delivering great customer service.  

Likewise, it is much more advantageous for finance leaders to use their brain power to tackle complex strategic challenges, rather than having them wade in the weeds of invoices and receipts. Your financial software should be able to create reports instantly or automatically create sales invoices when a purchase order is received. 

Ultimately, automation should be used strategically. Routine tasks that can be automated should be. In the end, this is not only more effective for your business, but it also frees up your employees’ time to focus on more rewarding and higher-value tasks.

Sahba Idelkhani, Director of Systems Engineering, McAfee

In the world of cybersecurity, automation is increasingly becoming a technology used to detect and protect against complex cyberattacks—and consequently help alleviate the cyber talent shortage. More recently, the volume of attacks has also surged. In fact, COVID-19-themed cyber-attack detections increased by 605% in Q2 2020

Tasks driven by automation are now addressed within minutes—not months—and allows teams to be proactive and resilient instead of reactive to the highly active threat landscape. Plus, automation provides an operational advantage, whereby, its implementation frees up senior analysts and IT staff from time-consuming tasks (such as data collection from various sources) to accelerate their response time to address an attack and make better-informed decisions.

However, automation is not useful in all contexts, as cybersecurity-related incidents rarely follow the same attack path – therefore, making it harder to automate remediation and responses completely. Response decisions will still need to loop in human talent for this very reason, and this is what we call human-machine teaming. Simply put, there’ll always be a need in cybersecurity for a human’s imagination and creativity to solve complex issues.

Vijay Sundaram, Chief Strategy Officer, Zoho

Vijay Sundaram, Soho, on supporting employees

Innovation and efficiency in business is an amalgam of culture, practices, and technology. Technology drives automation in many ways. Time-consuming work—like scheduling, issue tracking, analysis, and reporting—can be completely automated using workflows that plan, schedule, and automate work. This frees up human intervention for strategic thinking and soft-skill issues that cannot be automated.

AI can help find bottlenecks before they happen, plan best routes, or best times to accomplish something by combing through patterns in data that humans never can. Notifications and reminders can ensure prompt customer service in ways humans cannot keep up.

What automation cannot do is to set a culture that establishes practices and policy. For example, quick and decentralised decision making or customer-centricity are defining corporate cultures that drive innovation and loyalty and have stood the test of time. Automation cannot do that for you. Neither can it intervene to resolve, or even head off, conflict.

Andrew Souter, Area Vice President PreSales APAC, Ivanti

Automation tools can resolve up to 80% of IT issues before users even report them – music to the ears of teams struggling to keep up with the demands placed on their technology assets by the remote working boom. Monitoring for changes in device behaviours and detecting, analysing, prioritising and remediating vulnerabilities and issues can all be automated, strengthening one’s security posture, alleviating pressure from staff, and reducing the potential for human error.

Automating spend management can hugely benefit organisations of all sizes who have bee tasked with ‘doing more with less’ as the events of 2020 continue to impact today’s budgets. Automating the analysis of asset usage, license types, purchases and subscriptions can help teams pinpoint every dollar spent at a moment’s notice. Not only can they then more effectively track usage, purchase history, end-of-life dates and ongoing overall spend, they can automate insights around upcoming renewals as contract expirations strengthens compliance.

Fintan Lalor, Director of Sales & GM APAC, Wrike

To answer that question, you have to look at the areas where humans and robots outperform each other. When thinking about automation for businesses and organisations, we are really looking at responsibilities that don’t require high human value. By that, I mean repetitive tasks and processes, coordination and organisational skills, and processing large amounts of data to extract insights and value from it. 

Our human skills are better used for higher tasks that require emotional intelligence. It allows us to be better leaders and colleagues, using our capacity for empathy and understanding, but also to be more creative, fuelling our continuous thirst for innovation to improve our environment and societies.

The aim of automation is really to remove those low-value tasks from our remit to allow us to focus on higher tasks that need human skills you can’t automate. To keep up with the digital age, there are intelligent platforms that organisations can consider to deal with the nitty-gritty, which is still very time-consuming for our workforce, and allow them to focus on growing and being a better business. 

Jarrod Kinchington, Managing Director, Infor ANZ

Automation helps drive efficiencies and cut out mundane work, but the human element always remains critical. Routine and repetitive work such as data collection and entry, for example, should be automated where possible, since it significantly cuts down time and reduces human error.

Supply chains is one area where automation provides critical benefits. Smart warehousing, automation and robotics transforms supply chains to be more agile, resilient and efficient. Cloud solutions have improved efficiency and risk management in the F&B, logistics and distribution sectors, while also giving clearer visibility into inventory, orders, equipment and people to help drive enhanced service levels and increase product velocity. In the hotel sector, automation can optimise check-in efficiency and eliminate paperwork, improving operating efficiency by up to 80%.

But caution still needs to be taken around automating relationship-based tasks. There are situations where human-to-human contact remains critical. While machines are getting increasingly effective in understanding human queries and generating responses, there will never be a day where the human touch is not needed.

Marco Zande, Marketing & Digital Communications Executive, WLTH

The power of automation is something that many businesses don’t fully comprehend until they start to build out and unlock its benefits. Automation helps businesses remove a number of pain points, especially clunky processes related to client engagement and communication.

Automation comes into its own when a business is looking to scale. By simplifying customer engagement flows, businesses can communicate with clients and onboard large numbers with ease, without having to bring on additional team members to handle the volume. 

However, it’s important to also remember that automation isn’t a good fit for all businesses, and there is a fine line between getting it right and missing the mark. In our business, the human element plays a pivotal role in everything we do, and our tagline ‘Branchless but not faceless’ really drives that home.

Greg Eyre, Vice President, Blue Prism

There has been a lot of conversation about automation in recent times. In the public arena, commentators are warning that robots are set to take over jobs and render the human labour force redundant, but this is simply not the case at all.

The digital workforce — robots driven by automated processes — are complementing human capabilities. It enables us to work smarter and be more productive, freeing our focus for high-level analytical, creative, and emotionally-driven tasks.

Robots might be able to complete administrative, predictable and tedious tasks through a framework that we, humans, set, but they rely on us to operate, learn and improve.

As a practical example in a healthcare setting, Robotic Process Automation and Intelligent Automation can help its human counterparts to improve patient care by proactively engaging patients with treatment plan updates or reducing wait times on arrival and discharge through automated or digital registration. However, it remains up to clinicians and healthcare professionals to deliver a high standard of care to their patients while also building and maintaining the human relationships that are critical within the healthcare sector.

Simon Le Grande, Director Of Marketing and Product Management, ‎Lightspeed

Through technological innovation as well as exceptional product & service design, some functions and tasks that used to require a human touch are increasingly becoming automated. What we’re seeing in many industries is a removal of the ‘human’ from repetitive and simple tasks, but a reaffirmation that more complex functions, requiring softer skills like empathy, communication, strategic thinking and creativity will never be ‘automated away’.

The hospitality industry provides an interesting lens here, especially given the acceleration of digital transformation in this space off the back of the pandemic. While digital menus, online ordering and contactless payments have automated many touchpoints in the dining experience, meaningful interactions and conversations with waitstaff, sommeliers and chefs that really augment the dining experience simply could not be automated. Humans are now able to focus their energies on value-add activities, while allowing technology to play its part in reducing the scope of their roles and bringing efficiencies that lead to business success.

Stuart Read, Head of Growth, JobAdder

Automation – intended to reduce human intervention in processes – can either be a blessing for businesses, or a true hindrance.

For us, at JobAdder, we embrace automation. Not only does it simplify our processes such as job postings to job boards, but it also helps to streamline our onboarding processes, payroll, and reference checks.  

However, we do acknowledge some aspects of our business that automation doesn’t entirely support, where a human element must be present in order to efficiently complete the task at hand. This can include anything from interviews with candidates, negotiations on money and benefits, the placement of a candidate, and hand-written job ads that can provide a personal touch and insight into the culture and essence of a brand.

Paul Hadida, General Manager Australia, SevenRooms

The accelerated adoption of technology in the last year has not only set new business standards, but has also led to changing customer expectations. Today, automation is a crucial advantage businesses can leverage to not only streamline operations, but meet and exceed customer expectations. In the hospitality industry, for example, there’s a misconception that automating processes could impact the personal, meaningful touches that patrons crave. The reality, however, is quite the opposite.

For customers, automation is both convenient and safe, helping venues glean valuable customer insights and data at the touch of a button. These insights, which are paramount to success, can ascertain a guest’s favourite food and drink, allergies and even their birthday. With that data operators can automate tailored marketing and promotions. Capturing data across the guest journey by automating previously manual processes – from on-site interactions to post-visit marketing – enhances a venue’s ability to provide the memorable and convenient experiences that can boost revenue and retention.

Roger Carvosso, Strategy and Product Director, FirstWave Cloud Technology

Automated technologies and processes come in a range of formats, and the most effective are those that pre-empt what the business needs, followed by taking measured actions to progress the business forward or prevent negative outcomes. One of the most important investments businesses will need to make in 2021 will be in cybersecurity technologies. 

With scams continuing to rise, professionals continuing to make simple errors that can lead to cybercrime, such as re-using weak passwords. And with businesses continuing to be easy targets for phishing attacks, whereby one leak of credentials can lead to the leak of an entire organisation’s data, it is no longer acceptable for a business of any size to ‘wait and see’ how cybercrime will impact them. There has to be a proactive approach, leveraging cost-effective but enterprise-grade solutions, to averting scam emails away from employees’ inboxes, flagging cybercrime to relevant executive and IT teams as it happens, and complying with industry rules and regulations. 

Emma Pudney, Chief Technology Officer, APJ, Rackspace Technology

Automation is part of our everyday lives even if we don’t realise it. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2025, more than 20% of all products will be manufactured, packed, shipped, and delivered without being touched, which means the person who purchases the product will be the first human to touch it. Organisations are automating more and more tasks, from operational workflows to application deployment. These tasks become end-to-end processes that are efficient, reliable, scalable and easier to adapt.

But deciding on whether or not to automate something is multifaceted. It’s not just about the decision-making process, but also part ROI, part morality and other knock-on effects. It’s worth considering, for example, the consequences to the global economy – what happens if we automate all of the tasks performed by an unskilled workforce? It’s not so much a question of what can’t we automate but what shouldn’t we automate.

Stephen Barnes, Principal, Byronvale Advisors

Most things in business can be automated or systemised. Accounting systems can have through processing from receiving an invoice through to lodging tax returns. HR systems can have timesheets based on employee’s physical location. Tasks such as answering the phone can be systemised as easily as taking a video recording. Automation and systemisation have many advantages. The three main ones in my opinion: it lets you guarantee the quality of work, it clarifies your thoughts and relieves stress, and it creates an asset that increases the value of your

There is one intangible that cannot be automated – relationships. In my business of turnarounds, restructures, and crisis management establishing personal relationships and repairing broken relationships is absolutely key to success. This is done by having actual face-to-face (or virtual face-to-face) meetings, and actual conversations – preferably not via email. It establishes an environment of openness and trust – and that is exactly whom people want to be in business with.

Mark Brown, General Manager – Marketing, Konica Minolta Australia

SMEs spend massive amounts of time on manual tasks. Automating these tasks would let employees add more value and experience greater job satisfaction. One example is documents that need to be scanned, processed, and delivered to one or more destinations such as another department, a customer relationship management (CRM) system or an electronic archiving solution. Document capture and workflow solutions make these procedures faster and more productive, and, importantly post-COVID, reduce costs.

Robotic process automation (RPA) can also assist with repetitive tasks. RPA completes mundane tasks such as processing invoices or claims, completing financial processes, or managing HR-related paperwork. This is done faster and with complete accuracy, leading to better outcomes for staff and customers.

There is no doubt that innovative technologies that let SMEs automate will be critical to their ongoing recovery and success into the future.

From Covid-19 to the SolarWinds cyberattack, 2020 delivered many blows to public trust. Founders need to take the lessons learned and ensure they are not part of the problem.

Free Book Preview: Unstoppable

Get a glimpse of how to overcome the mental and physical fatigue that is standing between you and your full potential.

January 28, 2021 6 min read

From Covid-19 to the SolarWinds cyber attack, 2020 delivered many blows to public trust. We have been bombarded with misinformation and , leading us to wonder about the and security of our sensitive personal and organizational information. These events have magnified the lack of trust people have in everything from government agencies to brands both big and small. 

Within this 2020 problem lies a 2021 opportunity. The new year provides founders with the opportunity to get creative and solve the issues that this broken trust has engendered – and also ensure that you are not part of the problem. That begins by addressing the breakdowns in three areas: , transparency and security.

Data privacy

There has always been a need for protecting private data, but long gone are the days when sensitive customer documents were locked in a filing cabinet at the end of the workday. In our digital world, customers share more information about themselves than ever across a variety of platforms; however, there is confusion over who is responsible for data privacy. In a Cisco Consumer Privacy survey, nearly half of respondents felt it was the government’s responsibility, while a quarter believe consumers should do more to protect their , and only about one in five thought it was up to the companies who collect, process and store the information to keep it safe. Data privacy laws, such as and CCPA, have put greater onus on organizations to ensure data privacy. In fact, Gartner predicts by 2023, 65 percent of the world population will have their personal information protected by data privacy laws. The fines and other impacts, such as reputational damage leading to lost business, make companies keenly aware of the importance of maintaining data protection.

Most startups do not meet the minimum criteria necessary to be compliant with data privacy regulations, but that does not give founders a free pass to ignore data privacy protections. Rather, meeting data privacy requirements from the beginning will ensure your company is prepared as it scales and as new privacy laws are introduced. Adding technology that categorizes data while reducing redundancy prepares you for consumer requests to be forgotten or verify what data is held. It is also important for you to consider what data is valuable to retain and what can be discarded. There should be governance over the data, either by designating a person, adding technology or by enlisting a third-party firm, so that privacy can be maintained appropriately and requests from customers can be immediately addressed.

Transparency is an important requirement in data privacy compliance. GDPR articles state that answers to customers’ questions surrounding their data will be made in a “concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible form, using clear and plain language.” Companies will need to be able to answer the following:

  • Who is responsible for data governance and privacy? Is there a designated responsible individual responsible for this information?
  • Are you prepared to share all contact information on request?
  • Have you defined the purpose for holding consumer personal data?
  • How long will it be kept? How is it currently processed?
  • Will the information be transferred to a third party?

Although these questions are specific to GDPR, (which any company doing business with EU residents is required to follow) this level of transparency should be standard for startups. It only stands to foster loyalty among customers, partners and investors.

Wanting to be transparent in how data is used is one thing. Having the ability to be transparent is a greater challenge. Entrepreneurs will want to look at the technology that is available to address this problem. Data is useless if you do not know what you have and how it benefits you. Achieving the transparency required in data privacy laws will give you better insight into your data overall. Data transparency solutions allow you to explain not only why you are holding consumer data but also how it can provide your company with improved business agility. Ultimately, businesses with their data in order can not only comply with the law but also offer richer customer experiences.

Data security

Work from home during Covid-19 has led to an increase in data breaches, with 20 percent of breaches and cyber incidents in 2020 directly related to remote work. There have even been data breaches directly correlated to the pandemic, such as the attack on the Small Business Administration that revealed the information of those applying for emergency loans from the government.

There is no question that data is under attack. It is up to businesses to take action to protect it. This is much harder to do when your company is small, you have limited resources and your workforce is accessing the network on personal devices from all over the world. There are basic rules that must be applied, such as using multi-factor authentication to access all company and customer data and enforcing strong passwords (the SolarWinds attack relied on weak passwords to get access). VPNs offer more secure connections than home routers, and encryption should be used for any sensitive transmissions. Cloud technologies like Security-as-a-Service offer accessible security management for workers wherever they are, and tools that offer security on the edge will provide protection directly for the data, whether it is on the network or access on a smartphone through the cloud.

In 2020, you were forced to readjust your approach to data protections quickly using the solutions that were available. In 2021, there is an opportunity for founders and entrepreneurs to take the lessons learned and build trust, whether through the development of innovative solutions or by ensuring your startup is able to hold itself to the highest standards of data protection.

Money currency vector illustration. Various money bills dollar cash paper bank notes and gold coins. Collection of cash heap pile and currency stack vector set.

It’s been a busy year for Olive AI, the Cleveland-based startup that automates routine administrative tasks for hospitals. Not long after raising $106 million in funding, the company closed a $225.5 million round led by Tiger Global Management, giving it a $1.5 billion valuation.

Since the start of 2020, the company has raised a total of $385 million, with backers including General Catalyst, Drive Capital and GV.

CEO Sean Lane, a former NSA agent, founded the company in 2012, after realizing that most systems in healthcare often aren’t connected. Traveling between hospitals, he noticed a “sea of cubicles” with employees doing the same tasks over and over again.

“In reality, it was like an assembly line,” he said in a previous interview. “Humans were under this mountain of work that they never could get done because of that.”

The solutions handles repetitive tasks in billing, supply chain and pharmacy. For example, it’s often used to manage prior authorizations, vendor contracts and inventory. Some of its customers include MedStar, MemorialCare, Gunderson Health System and Yale New Haven.

Most recently, the company rolled out a solution to surface information to assist with day-to-day tasks — such as surfacing recent patient information, verifying their insurance details and contact information while they’re registering for an appointment.

The company recently hired a new chief financial officer and chief marketing officer to help lead its expansion. It also plans to use the new funds to expand its software capabilities.

“In the year ahead, we’re setting our sights on the big picture — investing in R&D to bring more solutions to hospitals and health systems that not only disrupt the industry, but also help to fix a broken system at a critical time for humanity,” Lane said in a news release.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

In many industries, regulation is often viewed as an additional hurdle to overcome. Many businesses tend to think of rules and policies as challenges that require adjustments and additional cost in their operations. However, the spirit of regulation is to establish fairness and even openness. Thus, a better paradigm involves regulatory frameworks being drivers of innovation.

“In the economic sphere, regulations can maintain a certain level of openness or competition in product markets which provides the necessary conditions for research and innovation,” states an paper on regulatory reform and innovation

Regulation is not necessarily a hindrance to innovation, especially when it comes to financial technology. It may appear antithetical to decentralized finance, but there are merits in allowing regulatory bodies some participation in the supposed of financial transactions.

Why laissez-faire and complete deregulation are ineffective

Cryptocurrency exchange and derivative platforms have lacked compliance. A quick search online shows numerous accusations and drawbacks. In October, BitMEX was charged by the U.S. with facilitating unregistered trading. It has since been reviewing its account holders and requiring verification of their identities.

The lack of regulation and compliance results in higher risk for abuse. Without regulatory agencies overseeing the legitimacy of transactions, players are free to do whatever they want at the expense of customers. Consequently, as reported by Yahoo, “the government has proposed a new licensing regime under its anti- legislation, requiring all cryptocurrency trading platforms that operate there, or target investors in the city, to apply for an SFC licence.”

In theory, it can also go the other way, wherein the absence of regulation allows companies to explore more creative ways to deliver new products and services. However, more often than not, there is a risk that abuse trumps innovation without regulation especially in the world of fintech.

Related: What Business and Government Should Do When Innovation Outpaces Regulation

Finance and technology, coupled with the ideas of decentralization and democratization, are not easy to comprehend. Case in point: Many have already adopted the use of digital assets, but only a few users have a proper grasp of how this fintech innovation works technically. Without regulatory oversight, it is easy for many to fall for deceptive schemes, and there are numerous scams bordering on exit scams, so-called cloud mining operations and the like. 

Many are deceived when baited by ideas such as the high conversion rates and the idea that digital assets are a safe haven in this time of economic uncertainty.

Moreover, deliberate abuse is not the only argument against deregulation in fintech. Security is also a critical concern. Many unregulated companies forego adequate security measures as they reduce expenses to pursue better profit margins. Current regulatory policies include security requirements to protect consumers from various threats, both natural and man-made.

Compliance gives enterprises an assurance

Many enterprises or large businesses acknowledge the advantages of new technologies such as and the benefits of breaking away from centralized systems. However, they hesitate to consider novel services such as blockchain-backed solutions because of the possible security and legal threats arising from a decentralized system.

As an example, the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF), or the French equivalent of the , approved the token swap offering of iExec, a company that provides a decentralized platform for connecting apps and trusted off-chain computation and data providers. It is essentially a decentralized marketplace for

What the French SEC decision imparts is that enterprises can start exchanging compliant cloud resources, which should assure customers of high-quality and secure services. Businesses that take advantage of off-chain cloud resources due to their competitive pricing and improved privacy can be assured that their options are compliant, especially when it comes to security policies.

This presents a compelling case of regulation serving as a stimulator for innovation and ingenuity. For one, through regulatory compliance, the innovation can be seen as free from the risks associated with money laundering and terrorist funding activities. 

In one perspective, regulation has empowered iExec to develop its service taking into consideration the various regulatory regimes, including Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) policies. This makes it favorable not only to small businesses but also to enterprises that require a high level of compliance in order to also address their corporate responsibilities.

Complex regulation-technology relations

Going back to the OECD paper cited earlier, it bears emphasizing that well thought out regulation is not inimical to innovation in industries. It can even serve as a stimulus. “Regulatory reform itself can be a powerful stimulus to innovation in most fields, ranging from banking to environment to retailing,” the OECD paper points out.

For platforms and solutions, standardization in compliance mechanisms will encourage adoption, particularly if it will give regulators a high level of comfort that innovations will be done within these frameworks.

“When it comes to crypto assets offerings, very few initiatives from financial regulators have proved to be as relevant as the AMF visa. The AMF visa combines both a high level of standards in order to protect investors and the necessary freedom for innovation,” says Gilles Fedak, Chief Executive Officer at iExec. “Enterprises involved in cloud computing care about regulation and being able to offer an AML/CFT compliant version of the RLC token will boost Enterprise adoption, and at the same time reinforcing the iExec ecosystem as a whole.”

Regulations help foster competition and prevent antitrust activities that deprive smaller competitors of the chance to get funding and consumer exposure. This is particularly true in the finance and tech industries, where larger companies quickly absorb or compete against smaller ones that threaten their dominant positions with their innovative new products and services.

Governments that pay attention to important industry movements and needs must streamline regulations to help promote innovative solutions. Decentralization does not necessarily advocate a complete decoupling from government oversight. Industries that seek to decentralize also need to understand that consumers view government involvement as a form of assurance. Regulation guarantees the quality of the services they get and provides enforceable recourse options in case businesses renege on their responsibility to customers.

Moreover, regulation facilitates international harmonization. ’s decision to issue its state-backed digital asset, for example, may attract foreign investors and promote broader digital currency adoption. However, without corresponding regulatory actions in the governments of other countries, the goal of bringing cryptocurrency to the mainstream may lead to challenges that may end up discouraging consumers from embracing digital currency use.

The takeaway

Regulatory frameworks may appear limiting, but they set conditions that can be viewed in another perspective as opportunities to develop products that do not only address pressing needs through innovative solutions. Regulations help guide innovation to produce solutions that are not only useful but also dependable, secure, and unlikely to be met with local and geopolitical challenges. Additionally, regulation ensures that competition is not suppressed and the introduction of innovations to foreign markets proceeds in harmony with counterpart regulations and technical conditions.

Providence, a Renton, Washington-based health system, and artificial intelligence company Nuance Communications have entered into a collaboration with the aim of improving clinical documentation and reducing clinician burnout across Providence’s 51 hospitals.

Providence is one of the largest health systems in the country, with its facilities spanning seven states. The health system has an existing relationship with Nuance and already uses the company’s Dragon Medical One solution in its facilities. The solution is a cloud-based speech recognition platform that translates the clinician’s voice into clinical documentation that is entered into the EHR.

Per the new collaboration, Providence will deploy Nuance’s Dragon Ambient eXperience. The Dragon Ambient eXperience combines conversational AI technology with Microsoft Azure, a cloud computing service, to capture and contextualize the entire patient visit. The clinician and patient can continue their conversation while the technology automatically documents the visit.

“Our partnership with Nuance is helping Providence make it easier for our doctors and nurses to do the hard work of documenting the cutting-edge care they provide day in and day out,” said Dr. Amy Compton-Phillips, executive vice president and chief clinical officer at Providence, in a statement. “The tools we’re developing let our caregivers focus on their patients instead of their keyboards, and that will go a long way in bringing joy back to practicing medicine.”

Clinical documentation and EHR use have been significantly linked to clinician stress and burnout. A survey of 282 clinicians published last year showed 40% of physician burnout is attributable to EHR use, according to EHR Intelligence. It also showed that physicians spend two minutes at the computer for every one minute they spend with patients.

Research shows that reducing the number of tasks a physician is expected to perform has a tangible effect on reducing burnout. A study published earlier this month in The Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety found that for every 10% decrease in physician task load the odds of experiencing burnout dropped by 33%.

Providence and Nuance’s expanded collaboration will also include the deployment of CDE One, a cloud-based workflow management and documentation guidance solution, and Nuance’s surgical computer-assisted physician documentation solution.

Further, the two entities will develop integrated clinical intelligence and enhanced revenue cycle solutions.

Providence is not new to using machine learning and AI tools. The health system is already using them to anticipate COVID-19 resurgence and manage personal protective equipment and other finite resources, B.J. Moore, executive vice president and CIO at Providence, said via email.

“As healthcare embraces wearables, internet of things, big data, AI will be imperative to sift through and make sense of the trillions of signals we will be receiving from our communities and patients,” he said.

But the technology is still new, and in its infancy, he added.

“We need to take small incremental steps to prove the value and use of AI. In addition, change management and adoption will be critical as we begin to weave AI into caregiver workflows,” Moore said.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Boaz Grinvald is the CEO at Revuze, a firm that helps businesses win their markets by mining unique insights from unstructured market opinions, both public and internal. Revuze performs sentiment analysis by personalizing the automated process to maximize accuracy and its success rate. 

Also known as opinion mining or emotion AI, sentiment analysis helps a understand the social sentiment of their brand, product or service by mining text that identifies and pulls subjective information from the source material. An automated process, algorithms classify statements as positive, negative and neutral through and text analytics. 

Revuze emphasizes personalization as the key to learning regarding certain product features. With their AI algorithms, the big-data consumer-analytics firm can extract unique topics ranging in specificity from the general, including price, to the specific, such as softness.

I recently spoke with Grinvald to discuss how brands can gain a unique insight into the minds of consumers by way of sentiment analysis.

Why is sentiment analysis critical in the consumer journey?

Sentiment analysis allows brands to understand where consumers stand on a wide range of things: brand, service, product or even a feature of a product or service.

As an example, an online review such as, “So happy with my , the screen is amazing and the camera is just unbelievable. It was a bit pricy though” can help a brand such as learn that sentiment is very positive towards the recent iPhone screen and camera, but that the sentiment towards the price is negative. 

How did Covid-19 change consumer behavior?

Consumer behavior changed during the pandemic in several ways. The main changes in behavior involve health concerns that push consumers to rely more on online commerce versus retail. Consumers also lower their loyalty towards brands based on online availability, as well as on financial concerns. 

Also, working from home pushed consumers to invest more in their home and home office. As an example, sentiment towards earphones with noise cancellation grew due to the need to work from home, while price sensitivity sentiment declined as consumers were willing to pay more for items needed for their work. 

What advice do you have for the CEOs out there who are about to operate in ecommerce marketplaces? 

Listen, listen and listen. It’s all out there — billions of online reviews with details and sentiment at the product and feature level, ripe to be taken. You will be a fly on the wall in the largest consumer panel and will be able to know the sentiment about your offerings, as well as about those of your competitors. All you need to do is tap into the right, detailed business channel, which is the ecommerce reviews.

What do you think the ecommerce market will look like in several years?

Ecommerce favors new brands and innovators with a low barrier of entry, and now that the crowds are buying more and more online, I believe in a few years we will see lots of new brands rising quickly online. These new brands will likely be digitally savvy and will leverage the consumer sentiment feedback to grow quickly and with fewer mistakes, which is why I anticipate lots of new brands and products popping up that will become household names.
