She and the finance group led a multiyear project to evaluate whether Robotic Process Automation would bring value to the company. And if so, what was the most sensible way to scale it globally?

If the technology community had anything to say about it, “cloud” might be the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year. Those of us who work in the SAP world generally hear this word at least once a day, along with one of its relatives such as “digital transformation,” or the latest phrase brought into our vocabulary by SAP, “intelligent enterprise.” Cloud technology is about as hot as it gets right now.
