InfoCepts embarked on this project with “quality, zero touch, and trust” as guiding principles shared with NielsenIQ. We focused on accelerated delivery and operational excellence through automation and process improvement in release management and reports development. Below were the key factors that defined the success criteria for the automated insights delivery process:
- Start small and plan big. Measure, learn and improve continuously
- Combine the right tools
- Think reporting automation as a journey, not a destination
- Think reporting automation is a business transformation, not a technology project
InfoCepts delivered our automated report generation solution by automating complex business processes or workflows which generate and deliver autonomous insights. The solution involved the orchestrated use of multiple cutting-edge technologies, tools, and platforms (like- AI, ML, NLP, NLG, Computer Vision, Low Code, RPA, and Hyper Automation) and is capable to observe, engage, decide, and act based on user-driven demands.
We leveraged our report factory approach and robotic process automation techniques to automate the report development lifecycle. The solution reads the specifications provided by business users and converts them automatically into Business Intelligence Reports. It involved standardizing the process of requirements intake, requirements analysis, report generation and automated testing. As part of this, InfoCepts supported the customer in defining the process workflow, tool selection, building the automation workflows using UIPath (RPA tool) and sustaining the initiative to accommodate more and more unique scenarios thus minimizing manual intervention.
