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.
“A chain is only as strong as its weakest link” is a common term heard around IT security talk, but the unpleasant truth is weak links in the security chain are frequently overlooked. Until they are exploited. Credit card skimmers on ATMs and gas pumps are so successful because they appear to have no user vulnerability, and so commonplace they are potential risks are ignored.
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.
Spending on information security is expected to reach $124 billion this year. Yet it seems every technology vendor is trying to make documents more accessible and more portable for the sake of greater productivity.
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?
As organizations explore the use of automation and facilitate such a balance, they will increasingly turn to Intelligent Automation software platforms vs. stand-alone ‘point’ solutions. An Intelligent Automation platform of technologies hyper-connects an organization (its people and its customers) to transform how work gets done and service is delivered.
