Workato Introduces "The New Automation Mindset" Book, a Blueprint for Harnessing the Power of AI and Automation
Workato, together with Wiley, announced the official release of the industry-focused book, "The New Automation Mindset: The Leadership Blueprint for the Era of AI-for-All". Authored by Workato co-founder and CEO, Vijay Tella, former Gartner VP and Distinguished Analyst Massimo Pezzini, and HubSpot's Vice President of Platform Ecosystem, Scott Brinker, the book reveals the mindset behind the success of category-defining businesses that harness AI and automation. The book is now available wherever books are sold, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Target, and more.

"Over the years, I've had the opportunity to work with amazing leaders and companies, to help them tap into their fullest digital potential and embrace new technologies. AI presents the opportunity to take the work we started at Workato 10 years ago to a whole new level. With "The New Automation Mindset", we introduce this new approach that looks beyond the adoption of new technology and encompasses AI-driven democratization across all enterprises," said Vijay Tella, author, co-founder, and CEO of Workato. "We wrote this book to capture what the best companies are doing and provide a blueprint for leaders in this AI-for-all era. This is a blueprint on how every organization can harness generative AI and automation to transform."

"The New Automation Mindset" takes an in-depth look at how technologies like generative AI, and low-code, cloud-native automation have propelled organizations into this new AI era. But, without a new mindset and unique blueprint, the reality is that no technology - not even AI - will break loose the stalled digital transformation movement. The book outlines three mindsets and the blueprint for CEOs, CIOs, and other business and technology leaders who want to be a catalyst for change in their organizations. To harness The New Automation Mindset, leaders must adopt a growth (reimagining AI + Automation), scale (across the enterprise with governance), and process (orchestrating end-to-end) mindset. Readers will learn how to focus on the big picture, embrace challenges, and treat change as a team sport to transform to a new level.

Hear from industry leaders on how "The New Automation Mindset" is a game changer when it comes to revolutionizing how businesses can and should approach AI:

  • "The New Automation Mindset is a set of powerful insights to help enterprises get off the traditional automation treadmill and onto the transformation fast-track with true business adaptability." - Arthur Hu, Global CIO, Lenovo
  • "No one in enterprise middleware has had a more impactful journey than Vijay Tella. We are so lucky, because, in this book, he shares his secrets. If you want to build an antifragile company that maximizes generative AI to overcome and thrive on challenges, The New Automation Mindset is your guide." - Amit Bendov, CEO, Gong
  • "There are plenty of books about automation software, but none of them provide the level of insights and practical advice that The New Automation Mindset does. That's because of Vijay's deep experience in the middleware space, which clearly comes out in this book. This is a book that every CIO should read." - Kim Huffman, CIO, Workiva
  • "AI is going to accelerate the change of the current landscape. The New Automation Mindset is a truly frame-breaking masterpiece that propels readers into the forefront of that revolution. With depth and precision, this book dives deep into the disruptive forces of AI, automation, and low-code tech. It empowers CIOs and other leaders to unleash efficiency, innovation, and competitive advantage. During my tenure as the CIO of Broadcom, I have personally seen all of these benefits. Brace yourself for a career-altering journey that will redefine the way you harness automation in the new AI era." - Andy Nallappan, CTO, Head of Software Engineering and Operations, Broadcom

Co-authored by industry leaders, Pezzini and Brinker, "The New Automation Mindset" was a chance for them to bring their unique perspectives to this conversation about shifting behaviors and how we should approach planning for the future.

"Automation means so many things to so many people. Trying to remove humans from processes as much as possible is ultimately the end goal. In order to achieve this, organizations and leaders need to start thinking holistically," said Massimo Pezzini. "The New Automation Mindset addresses how you think more in a process mindset and much more. It pushes leaders to embrace and address growth and scale within this mindset framework."

"Getting the opportunity to collaborate with Vijay and Massimo on this blueprint for success in this new era of AI and Automation was immensely gratifying. We've taken years of experience and lessons learned from our combined 30+ years of working in tech to teach the next generation of IT and business leaders how to be catalysts for change," said Scott Brinker. "We are seeing a much larger body of individuals who want to be able to harness the power of these new technologies that don't come from technical backgrounds. This new mindset helps organizations harness the possibilities of these technologies with a clear governance and orchestration foundation."
