Analytic Process Automation
Real-World APA Use Cases
ANALYTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION USE CASES
FOR EVERY BUSINESS AREA AND VERTICAL SOLUTION
Instead of asking what problems Analytic Process Automation solves, it might be better to ask what doesn’t it solve? APA isn’t limited to a line of business or industry. The combination of data, analytics and data science, business process, and the empowerment of people ultimately drives successful transformation and business outcomes across horizontals and verticals.
These use cases enable quick wins that prove the value of APA and help you gain buy-in from executives and line of business leaders and practitioners across the organization. And as you scale, an Analytic Process Automation platform provides three critical enterprise priorities:
1. Stable and agile governance
2. Efficient and economic scaling
3. Robust security and sharing
These features should please teams and individuals charged with governance and security, especially since it makes it easier for them and all stakeholders to buy in, not only during the initial adoption, but also as data needs expand and more people are added to the data analytics process.
FROM A SINGLE USE CASE TO A CULTURE OF ANALYTICS
The convergence of data, analytics and data science, and business process into one unified platform enables Analytic Process Automation. But the heart of digital transformation is creating a culture of analytics that harnesses data, processes, and people to make your organization more agile and amplify human output in order to solve bigger and more complex problems.
If technology is getting easier to use, why are companies not seeing the return on investment they were expecting? Companies need to build a culture around analytics and shift focus to address people and process to be well on their way to having an effective and profitable analytics investment.
— NICK HAYLUND, Director, Tessellation EMEA
Building a culture of analytics is the final stage in the analytics journey of embarking on self-service analytics, unleashing advanced analytics, scaling analytics across the organization, and building a culture of analytics that drives true digital transformation.
Of the companies with the highest level of analytical maturity, nearly half (48%) significantly exceeded business goals in the last 12 months.

A culture of analytics is both internal and external. Sharing internal knowledge is part of the upskilling of the workforce, but no company has all the answers. Sometimes you need to look beyond your own walls to the power of an external community that offers answers and inspiration.
With an internal culture of analytics
Stratasys has incredibly smart and talented people, and [now] cross-departmental team members can move beyond old processes and think more creatively about how to bring additional value. It changes from a reactive mindset to a proactive mindset.
— JASON CHENUG, Customer Advocacy Business Analytics Team Member
With an external culture of analytics
A data science and analytics community offers the opportunity to learn while helping others find solutions to their problems. And then it becomes a flywheel: the stronger the community, the stronger the shared investment of analytics users and the technology.
