“Oh ALICE!” – The Brady Bunch – ABC Studios

The Brady Bunch, an American sitcom revolved around a large blended family with six children and included in this blended family was a live-in housekeeper name Alice.  Alice was not only the housekeeper, but she was the family friend, support system and was embedded in the fabric of the show. Alice focused all the mundane tasks, the family analysis and problem-solving tasks, as well as many of the day to day responsibilities, that then allowed a busy family to focus on the Big Picture or the Big Things in life and to build and grow as a Family.  Alice became a pivotal staple of the show.

When I think about ALICE the platform or the service, not only do they have the same name, but meet the same basic needs of their customers. 

  • Much like Alice the housekeeper, ALICE is solution minded.
  • Her purpose is to solve problems and make the lives of the humans around her more efficient and overall better. 
  • ALICE enables companies to create an ecosystem of digital services to govern, manage, and monitor businesses.
  • In essence, ALICE is a digital worker who can execute routine and non-routine activities conducted by humans.
  • She affords human effort to be applied to more judgmental and higher-risk areas of the business so that organizations can do more with the same or fewer resources.  

The only difference between Alice from the Brady Bunch and ALICE the platform, are the stakeholders and their requirements, else they provide similar benefits and support.
