SINGAPORE - (ACN Newswire) - Kryon, a leading provider of intelligent Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solutions, has announced Process Discovery, a new AI-based solution that is set to revolutionise digital transformation in enterprises across every industry.

Kryon is leading an enterprise revolution which can benefit every organisation, in every vertical across the globe. While the imperative for enterprises to eliminate the "noise" of business process through automation has never been greater, its actual implementation has only slowly been realised.

Kryon is changing all that, now and forever. Before Kryon Process Discovery, automation was done step by step, a few processes in a few departments at a time - and then slowly expanding. Now, full automation can be done in a single step - almost instantly. Now companies can see their entire organisation's processes mapped with unprecedented speed, yielding intelligent recommendations for automated workflows. Never before has digital transformation been so easy and ROI realised, so quick.

Kryon Process Discovery is purpose-built to transcend the inherent limits and pain points that have slowed the adoption and scale of RPA deployment - causing companies to accept inefficiency and excess costs. Unlike process mining tools which work on a delay and examine logs, Kryon Process Discovery is built on a proprietary, AI-based platform that identifies business processes as employees actually engage with them. AI and machine learning enables Kryon Process Discovery to deliver intelligent automation recommendations based on expected ROI. Enterprises can select how much of the process they wish to automate and with a single click, the automated workflow is immediately generated in the Kryon Studio.

"Process discovery is the breakthrough that the enterprise market has been waiting for - it's a truly groundbreaking solution that offers enterprise management with a level of profound visibility into the everyday processes across the organisation that determine competitiveness, productivity and employee engagement. This visibility leads to high-impact automation of existing workflows," said CEO of Kryon, Harel Tayeb. "Kryon was able to accomplish this by further advancing its leading-edge AI and machine learning capabilities, which have been at the heart of the productivity transformations we have already accomplished for clients such as Microsoft and Wyndham Hotel Group."

Tayeb explained, "The new solution will significantly reduce overhead, design and development costs while Kryon's revolutionary AI engine will enable automation with almost zero human intervention and, faster than ever imagined." He continued, "Kryon's Process Discovery has all the insights needed to automate and optimise business processes. This innovative product will remove the pain points from deploying RPA throughout business, resulting in the industry finally having an easy adoption method at an unprecedented total cost of ownership."

The release of Kryon's Process Discovery offering also comes at a time when companies in Asia Pacific are exploring how to best leverage business process automation and digitisation to bridge gaps in functional silos, enhance customer experiences, and streamline operations. According to the 2017 Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey, nearly half (46%) of all CIOs in Asia Pacific are currently investing in or are planning to invest in RPA to automate highly repeatable, highly structured tasks across business software systems.

"Asia Pacific continues to be a hotbed for digital innovation, with companies readily embracing technologies and adopting them across all business aspects. With the launch of the process discovery offering, we look forward to becoming a more integral part of our APAC customers' digital transformation efforts by empowering them to simplify the digitisation of business processes, which lead to the creation of virtual workforces that increase processing efficiency, reduce errors and cut operational costs", said Daniel Peled, General Manager, Asia Pacific, at Kryon Systems.

Top companies from around the globe have already started using Kryon Process Discovery to gain complete process transparency - enabling them to minimise time to value, lower TCO, and accelerate the ROI of their RPA projects.

IES to drive engineering excellence beyond built environment and recognise wide-ranging skillsets to meet Singapore’s evolving needs

The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) will inaugurate Dr. Yeoh Lean Weng of the National Research Foundation (NRF) as its new President at its 52nd Annual General Meeting tomorrow. He will succeed Er. Edwin Khew and serve for a term of two years.

In consultation with the IES Council, Dr. Yeoh has outlined three priority areas to sharpen IES’ value to Singapore, the engineering community and its members. The first area focuses on achieving engineering excellence beyond the built environment sector to encompass advanced manufacturing, transportation and sustainability, in alignment with national industry transformation strategies. The second area aims at creating a more inclusive engineering community by providing professional recognition for technicians and master craftsmen. The third area centres on rebranding IES to attract younger engineers to join as members.

“I am honoured to be elected as the 27th President of IES. In an economic landscape increasingly shaped by disruptions, IES will challenge status quo to help engineers harness new technologies to transform our industries and quality of life. Our aim is to create a dynamic engineering ecosystem with deeply-skilled engineering professionals who collaborate across disciplines,” said Dr. Yeoh.

Dr. Yeoh has been at the forefront of Singapore’s Research and Development (R&D) advancement for the past 30 years. As the Director of Urban Solutions and Sustainability at NRF, he leads the planning of Singapore’s R&D strategy; manages national R&D programmes in urban solutions; and fosters innovations to address the nation’s long-term energy, water and environmental challenges. He also sits on the board of various institutes of research in energy, solar energy and environment technology.

An electrical engineer by training, Dr. Yeoh has contributed actively to IES since 2007 in various roles. He has been Deputy Chairman of the IES Chartered Engineer Board (Systems Engineering) since 2015; founding Chairman of the IES Certified Systems Engineering Professional and Vice President of IES from 2008 to 2011.

Er. Khew will become IES’ Immediate Past President, after making pivotal contributions in growing IES’ membership to more than 5,700; promoting engineering as the profession of choice; and establishing IES as the preferred partner for engineering matters. His key achievements include growing the IES Chartered Engineer programme into new sectors; and launching two books featuring outstanding engineering contributions to Singapore’s first 50 years.

“We are at a time when Singapore needs to re-imagine and re-strategise engineering to realise the goals of its Industry Transformation Maps, Smart Nation and other national initiatives. With Dr. Yeoh’s rich experience in developing national R&D strategies, commitment to the engineering profession and leadership experience, I am confident that he will help IES rise to new challenges and break new grounds,” said Er. Khew.

The Hong Kong Bach Choir & Orchestra Present Works by Mozart, Penderecki and Lutosławski
 
Jun 11, 2018
Category:

The Hong Kong Bach Choir and Orchestra close their 2017-18 season with music celebrating both love and creative independence, by Mozart, Penderecki and Lutosławski, on Sunday, 24th June at 8:00 p.m. at the Hong Kong City Hall Concert Hall in Central.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his “Great” Mass in C-minor as a gesture of thanks to God for Mozart’s marriage. It reflects not only his love for the Lord and for his young wife Constanze, but also for the music of Bach, which he was studying at the time he created the Mass and whose contrapuntal style permeates much of it. Its grandly scaled dimensions also express Mozart’s joy in the hard-won creative freedom he had recently achieved by breaking away from his employment under the musically conservative Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg to embark on a free-lance career in Vienna – a then-new phenomenon in the musical world.

But the Mass also comes along with a mystery: If it represents so many ideas crucial to Mozart’s life and work, why did he leave it unfinished?

Krzysztof Penderecki may well be the Mozart of the 20th century, both for his innovative music, which has been at the forefront of modernist and post-modernist movements since 1960, and for his insistence on creative autonomy even while living and working behind the Iron Curtain in his homeland, Poland. The Choir will perform three brief choral works by Penderecki: his Song for Cherubim, from 1987, and two excerpts from his most recent largescale work, Dies Illa. All three are in Penderecki’s controversial late neo-Romantic style, reflect his love for Eastern Orthodox chant and are deeply moving.

Also on the program is a major work by Penderecki’s slightly older Polish contemporary, Witold Lutosławski, who with Penderecki represents the post-War “Polish Renaissance.” Lutosławski wrote his Funeral Music for Strings in 1958 as a tribute to a beloved elder, the late Hungarian composer Béla Bartók, who, like Lutosławski, used the folk music of his homeland as a point of departure for an exploration of new sound-worlds. The Funeral Music for Strings has as its model Bartók’s masterpiece, the Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, and is one of the first successful modernist expressions to emerge from post-War Eastern Europe.

Soloists in the Mozart are soprano Stefanie Quintin, soprano Samantha Chong, tenor Felix Suen and bass-baritone Sammy Chien. The Choir’s assistant conductor Rex Man leads two of the Penderecki choruses, with the remainder of the program conducted by music director Jerome Hoberman.
