Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
As organizations implement Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to automate their tasks and processes, they frequently get stuck when their robot needs to “read” something more complex than a simple structured piece of data.
Organizations stand to gain in numerous ways from applying RPA and intelligent automation to repetitive, manual tasks. These technologies eliminate errors, cut processing times by half, deliver 100% accuracy, and increase capacity by as much as 50%. Perhaps even more importantly, automation relieves employees of tedious tasks and enables them to focus on value-added activities that require a human touch.
Automation is the future. Most organizations―and likely yours as well―have automation as one of its key priorities for 2019 and beyond. But you may be asking yourself, where should we begin this journey toward automation?
Have you ever written a document, made some edits, and then renamed the new file to track your work? You likely started with “v1,” then v2, onto v3 or final, only to find yourself adding final2, final3 and even final_final to the mix. If this is you, you’ll easily understand the need for Version Control Software (VCS).
In a recent Forbes Insights report, more than 300 senior executives around the world were asked to weigh in on the current state of process automation in their organizations, and the benefits and barriers they see to doing more. They provided insights on how their businesses are implementing robotic process automation (RPA) with Intelligent Automation.
My premise was to find out what people smarter than I thought about what the future holds for our intelligence: human intelligence. My interest was driven by information that I read from the World Economic Forum and whitepapers from Accenture and others who prognosticate on how automation will affect our future workforce.
