A Discussion on Automation with Watts Humphrey Award Winner Rajendra Prasad

November 2021 Podcast
Rajendra T. Prasad (Accenture)

In this SEI Podcast, 2020 IEEE Computer Society SEI Watts Humphrey Software Quality Award winner Rajendra Prasad of Accenture talks with Mike Konrad of the SEI about automation.

“The first thing that everyone in the organization needs to think about is, Is this something that I can complete by using automation? Is this a task that I need to do myself? Or can I free up my capacity? Can I do something more valuable? When everyone in the organization starts thinking that automation is the first thing that they need to think about before they do anything, that automation-first mindset can build an institutionalization foundation, thereby fueling and accelerating the benefits that can be generated from automation.”
