While organizations around the globe have been affected by the wide-ranging ramifications of the Coronavirus, just months after the start of the largest lockdown in history, enterprises are figuring out how to survive – and thrive – within the confines of the new reality.Read More
Without a doubt, 2020 will be remembered for many reasons. And for those of us who are sports lovers, there was grave disappointment that the Summer Olympics and all its fanfare was cancelled. No opening ceremony spectacle. No thrilling wins or heartbreaking defeats. So, Kryon has picked up the torch with the inaugural Kryon Automation Olympics on Tuesday, September 8. Now more than ever, it’s time to come together to recognize standout achievements in RPA (robotic process automation), and have some fun doing it!Read More
So, this year's MQ is out. And guess what? Kryon is not on it. Why the hell not? The answer is simple. Kryon didn’t meet ONE of Gartner’s arcane and outdated selection criteria, which has nothing to do with the attributes that are most important to the enterprise community, like product innovation, service and customer value, and references, and everything to do with narrow-minded and obsolescent benchmarks. Gartner – get with the times! Not only have you done a severe injustice to vendors who have demonstrated a high impact on the market, but you have also misrepresented the RPA market and disserved Gartner clients.Read More
Banks and financial institutions, like so many sectors of the economy, are still in the throes of managing the wave that seemed to crash overnight – COVID-19. At the same time, conversations are pivoting to emphasize restarting the economy. Banks, financial institutions, and insurance (BFSI) companies are managing a crush of customers who must delay mortgages and other payments, secure loans, and bank completely remotely. At the same, financial enterprises must handle internal changes and adjust business operations accordingly, from instituting new financial models to managing IT strains brought on by remote workers.Read More
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the ideal way to create dynamic virtual workforces that cut costs, boost operational efficiency, increase employee satisfaction, and deliver a superior customer experience.Read More
The concept of working remotely was already becoming an increasingly popular model across many industries even before the appearance of the coronavirus on the world stage. The proliferation of ever-evolving technologies like Skype, Teams, Zoom and Confluence meant that large numbers of workers could finally say a welcome goodbye to the dreaded commute and say hello instead to a more flexible and productive future.Read More
The emergence of the coronavirus pandemic on the world stage has completely upended most of our previously held assumptions about the future direction of the global economy, forcing us to ask – and seek urgent answers for – some very tough questions.Read More
As the world feels the effects of COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”), the business community has no choice but to cope with the millions of people quarantined, travel standstill and massive economic disruption, with plunging stock markets based on fears of global recession triggered by coronavirus horizon. Concern is building as entire workforces, university and school students are quarantined to their homes, resulting in billions of dollars of lost revenue.
The Future of Work is no longer a philosophical concept. I am one of the self-isolated millions currently working from home due to last week’s business trip. And I say that the future of work is happening now. With all of us talking about digital workers, and how ‘doing business’ will change, there is no doubt that Coronavirus is accelerating these changes at lightning speed.
So, what does this mean for enterprises and what can you do? Enterprises must maintain business continuity during coronavirus turmoil by accelerating their automation strategy.
Enforce Health-First Policies
First and foremost, protect employees’ health. Here at Kryon, we are strict in enforcing quarantine for those who have returned from affected countries. We too, after painful deliberation, took the decision to cancel our company events. Following employee disappointment, it is clear that the decision was the right one.
Initiate Automation Programs ASAP
Beyond these fundamental policies, enterprises must plan for both the short term and long term. When it’s in everyone’s best interest to stay at home and out of harm’s way, the virtual workforce is an unquestionable necessity. That means that if you haven’t yet rolled out a comprehensive Robotic Process Automation (RPA) initiative, you should. And quickly. And if you have, then look at how to optimize it and expand it across your company.
But let’s say, you are ready to push the RPA button. These projects start with Business Analysts executing discovery workshops and interviews with employees. This requires travel, hotel stay and considerable time spent sitting in close proximity of other people. But as quarantines and travel advisories become more severe by the hour, how do we maintain ‘business as usual’?
Business as Usual for Kryon Customers
Well… for Kryon customers it’s Business as Usual - they have a safe, continuous and revenue-building workplace.

Forrester’s recent guide on the Future of Work analyzes the ways in which automation is expected to change everything and anything to do with work – starting at the beginning, with fundamental questions such as what an organization is, what a company does, and how exactly the work gets done.
Automation is not happening in a vacuum – rather, in tandem with parallel trends that combine to create new types of business opportunities. Here’s some of how the intersection of automation and other trends are expected to pan out:
