"The RPA landscape had changed considerably in the past several years and has evolved from being purely and emergent phenomenon to being the core theme of discussions amount outsourcing market participants."


What is RPA?

"Robotic process automation (RPA) is the application of technology that automates workflow processes, primarily for administrative work. RPA software can help automate large volumes of digital manual-processing work."

What can A.I. robotic process automation (RPA) do?


Gather, collect and validate information

Synthesize and analyse structured and unstructured data

Record and transport information and data

Calculate (a position value) and/or decide (what to do)

Communicate with and assist users, clients and customers

Orchestrate and manage activities (both robotic and human based)

Monitor, detect and report or report operational performance

Learn, anticipate and forecast (behavior and outcomes)

The Evolution of RPA

Just in case you hadn’t noticed, robotic process automation (RPA) has taken the business and IT world by storm. In actual fact, that is something of an understatement. The RPA market has grown exponentially over the last few years, confounding all estimates.

The Promise of RPA

Robotic process automation (RPA) promises to increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and enhance the customer experience – which is why 74% of companies plan on investigating RPA systems in the next 12 months. Yet by 2019, it is likely that process automation will have limited impact on top-line growth for 50% of organizations.
