Websites provide online businesses with an unprecedented level of contact with customers and end
users. However, they also place business information where it can be easily accessed by third parties –
often using automated tools known as “bots”. For many organizations, bots represent up to 50%
or more of their overall website traffic, from good bots engaged in essential business tasks to bad
bots conducting fraudulent activities. Regardless of business impact, bot traffic can reduce website
performance for legitimate users and increase IT costs. Organizations need a flexible framework to
better manage their interaction with different categories of bots and the impact that bots have on
their business and IT infrastructure.
Technology adoption varies from sector to sector, company to company and department to
department. We asked 4000 leaders about their views on technology to find out which had the
potential to cause serious innovation.
It might be surprising to know that
although its adoption levels are lower than other emerging
technologies, artificial intelligence is most exciting to HR leaders. However, chatbots are what
people want to hear less about.
How did the other 4 technologies fare? The
results were fascinating
Transformation technologies like IoT, blockchain, AI, cloud security, autonomous and chatbots
are all jostling for our attention. But which ones are considered important and which ones are
businesses actually using? In August 201

Robotic Process Automation was born with the vision of empowering business users to create software bots that could interact with enterprise systems just like humans.
Its benefits include substantial time and cost savings, improved customer satisfaction, increased workforce morale, and the ability to build a competitive advantage over competitors.
But to fully realize all these benefits, it’s important for businesses to select a solution with a robust RPA security architecture that supports core principles, such as least privileges and separation of duties while delivering end-to-end protection for the critical apps and sensitive data involved.
This paper provides an overview of the industry’s highest standard for enterprise-grade security as demonstrated by the market’s leading Digital Workforce platform, Automation Anywhere Enterprise.
Automation Anywhere’s flagship product is Automation Anywhere Enterprise – a RPA platform offering a variety of tools to help organisations develop, operate and manage RPA bots that automate data entry, data gathering and other repetitive, routine tasks usually carried out as part of high-volume, repetitive work (for example, service fulfilment work in call centres, shared-service centres, and back-office processing environments). Automation Anywhere Enterprise bots can add value both in unattended (server-based, lights-out operation) and attended (desktop-based, interactive) deployment configurations.
In this report, MWD Advisors digs deeper into the features and capabilities of Automation Anywhere’s product portfolio, analysing its fast-growth trajectory and highlighting large-scale implementations.

Using IBM Watson’s cognitive capabilities, companies can quickly differentiate their customer service quality by being more pro active and responsive to customer needs. Simply put, chatbots and virtual agents are the future of customer interactions. Building apps from scratch that incorporate natural language processing, speech to text recognition, visual recognition, analytics, and artificial intelligence requires broad expertise in these disciplines, large staffs, and a huge financial commitment. Making use of IBM Watson cognitive services brings these capabilities in-house quickly and without the capital investment that would be needed to develop the technologies within an organization.
Das Mirai-Botnet nutzt Hunderttausende von internetfähigen Geräten, die nur über ein schwaches standardmäßiges Kennwort verfügen. Durch Installation von Malware übernimmt Mirai die Kontrolle über die Geräte und errichtet auf diese Weise eine weltumspannende Armee von infizierten Bots. Bis zum Zeitpunkt der Attacke durchsucht jedes betroffene Gerät das Internet nach weiteren angreifbaren Geräten und infiziert diese. Das Internet der Dinge besteht aus Milliarden von Geräten, die Daten senden und empfangen können und heutzutage fast überall anzutreffen sind. Private Sicherheits- und Unterhaltungsgeräte wie Internetkameras, digitale Videorecorder (DVR) und Router werden häufig mit der Mirai-Malware infiziert.
Customers have caught on that support interactions are getting better. When they reach out, they’ve come to expect an instant response that says “we’re here for you”. When they want information, it’s expected to be accurate, up-to-date, and easily accessible. Essentially, they come to expect efficiency during support interactions.
As a result, businesses are becoming more cognizant of their self- service offerings. Customers want to be left feeling empowered; it’s even better when they can do so on their own. Self-service saves time for agents, cuts down on organizational costs, and leaves the customer with a positive outlook of a brand.
This eBook delves into how AI can enhance your customer self-service offerings with automatically-generated knowledge bases, content cues for your service agents, and chatbots.

Robots play a key role in achieving manufacturing efficiencies and reducing labor intensive operations across diverse industries. Traditional machine vision has its limitations, however—typically, it can only conduct defect detection and classification based on fixed rules and work in fixed environments. To add on, the complexity of robotic system design poses challenges for many manufacturers to identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors.
The future of robot and machine solutions is a production environment where devices, machines, robots, and sensors are interoperable.
Find out how NexCOBOT integrates AI-driven vision capabilities into robotics to improve quality and accuracy over traditional machine vision—as well as providing an open and modular solution for users to develop a robot control system that best fits their particular application requirements.
