Prakash Kota, the CIO of design software behemoth Autodesk recently came out in favor of automation and AI, saying that it was freeing up time for workers at the software company, empowering them to focus on more difficult problems and develop newer skillsets. The 9,000 strong workforces have developed several automation programs that perform repetitive tasks of employees, including virtual assistants that even assist in query resolution and access authorization. Business functions that have been enhanced include payroll, marketing, and finance. Technology vendor UI Path has been one of the key partners in this growth. Autodesk has also developed AVA, an AI virtual assistant for customers using its software products.
