Emerging Technology Center of Excellence
Enterprises looking to scale Emerging Technology initiatives need a Center of Excellence to provide governance and strategy while maintaining the vision of the company through a unified methodology. A COE for emerging technology is able to manage the tech and monitor return results to ensure the efforts made are of value to the organization over all.
An COE plays a critical role as it is in charge of setting up an enterprise digital transformation program that can scale with sudden influxes of employee requests for automated solutions and navigate the technical challenges of setting up the infrastructure, technology IDs, and the VMs necessary for the program. Whether the COE sits in IT, shared services, or somewhere else, the structure of that governing body is directly linked to the success an organization will have with their digital solutions.

Accelirate has jump-started and scaled hundreds of automation programs and has used a proven COE Implementation Methodology to help clients set up a Center of Excellence using a governance model that best fits their organization’s needs. The basic functions of a COE fall under the following five broad categories:
Accelirate’s RPA-COE Establishment Program helps enterprises set up an Automation Center of Excellence while avoiding the common missteps. We find that the best COEs have delivery capability built into them right from inception and are responsible for delivering real-life, business value solutions.
Our team understands the value of a strong Center of Excellence. The COE provides Demand Generation and Management, Process Analysis, Automation Development (Configuration), and ongoing maintenance and support – all critical to the success of an RPA Program. Our tools and expertise will help you lay the foundation for a robust digital transformation. As best practice, we recommend having the COE sit in a group that has enterprise exposure and visibility into other enterprise standards and initiatives. Regardless of where the COE is set up, our recommendation is to have the COE seeded with delivery capability and equipped with a staged maturity plan.
Setting up an digital transformation program for the enterprise requires a thorough understanding of not only challenges that are unique to the emerging technologies the organization uses but also expertise with infrastructure and DevOps.
