Denver ARMA Spring Seminar: Our Observations on Content Services and RPA Awareness


As a Mile High Denver ARMA Silver Business Partner, Buddha Logic recently participated in the organization’s Spring Seminar. The event included excellent sessions on a wide range of records management topics, from foundations of information governance (IG) to blockchain to personnel management and motivation.

We’re a frequent presenter at ARMA monthly events, but in this case we focused on connecting with people at our booth in the exhibit hall. Buddha Logic President and CTO Charles Weidman, Project Manager Donna Harrison and I enjoyed talking with the steady stream of records management professionals who stopped by. The conversations covered a wide range of topics, including:

  • Business process management
  • Cognitive capture
  • Process orchestration
  • Intelligent OCR (optical character recognition)
  • Content services
  • Robotic process automation (RPA)
  • And many more

Some of our booth visitors understood what a business process automation company like Buddha Logic does. What surprised us a bit was that a significant percentage of these very skilled and experienced business professionals weren’t familiar with what a powerful impact automation can have.

What is content services? What is RPA?

Many of the people we talked with asked questions like, “What is content services?” and “What is RPA?” As we provided an overview of these concepts, it was very gratifying to see their new awareness very quickly turn to eagerness to learn more.

And it wasn’t surprising, especially when we shared that even implementing just one of our Buddha Botz software “robots” can dramatically reduce the time to complete manual, repetitive, data-related tasks (thereby reducing the associated labor expense) and can greatly improve accuracy without any increase in overhead costs. In today’s competitive, data-focused business environment, any efficiency increase is welcomed, especially when it can be obtained so affordably.

How Personal Connections Help Us See How RPA and Content Services are Perceived

In our work with clients and potential clients in the Denver area and beyond, we’re focused on creating customized content services and RPA solutions that address their specific needs. And every day we see how automation can help companies save time and money, so it’s easy to assume that every organization must know that these types of solutions are available.

Fortunately, an event like the ARMA Spring Seminar and our interaction with attendees quickly reminds us that many data management professionals don’t yet understand what a significant benefit business process automation in its many forms can be to their operations. These personal connections are one of the reasons we’re active in the automation “ecosystem” through industry events, business partnerships and strategic alliances.  

Many thanks to the ARMA team for hosting such a fun, interesting and informative gathering!
