Read Time: 4 minutes

Last week, our first annual Automate Conference brought together thousands of people from all over the world to share skills and best practices for automating at scale. Workato is unique among automation solutions for our focus on bringing together technical and non-technical users. Because Workato is accessible to everyone, it’s the ideal hub to build an automation-first culture for your organization.

The Product Showcase stage at Automate offered a series of workshops on how to kickstart that culture, showing how every part of the enterprise, from Ops to Revenue, can benefit from automation.

If you weren’t able to join us at Automate, don’t despair. Seriously, it’s okay, we record this stuff. It’s not too late. You can catch up with each of our eight Product Showcase sessions linked below.
