About the Topic:

  • Process automation plays a key role in digital transformation, making the digitalized business processes perform better, faster, and cheaper
  • Rule-based, routine, data-intensive, and high-volume tasks with digital inputs are ideal business processes for Robotic Process Automation (RPA)­­
  • Integrating RPA with AI and Machine Learning allows the RPA ROBOTS to perform more complex tasks, extending their capabilities and enabling them for Intelligent Process Automation. For example, Machine Learning enables the robots to spot the data patterns and relationships in facilitating the extraction of selected data from a pile of documents 
  • Benefits of RPA deployment are easy to estimate (e.g., Productivity, Execution speed, Accuracy, and FTE savings), but one needs to safeguard the ethical principles during RPA implementation
  • Implementation of RPA is similar to that of Business Process Redesign. One must first identify the proper process suitable for digitalization, then improve and streamline it before automation. RPA will accelerate the exposure of problems in the as-is process and pile up the faults in no time.
  • If the presentation schedule permits, the presenter will conduct a demo on RPA and share his insights with the audience.
