Ways to convince Your Boss Ways to Save

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology is the next frontier for businesses looking to streamline processes, increase productivity and ultimately improve the bottom-line.

RPA typically uses artificial intelligence to handle repetitive, rules-based, back-office tasks. And the market is about to experience a period of "explosive" growth.

The RPA market grew 64 percent to $200 million last year and is expected to grow 70 to 90 percent by 2018 because successful pilot projects are inspiring buyer confidence in the technology, the consulting and research firm reports.

However, there are some barriers to adoption, such as IT departments concerned about data security and loss of control. Plus, replacing staff with robots in some sectors, such as government, could become a political minefield.

Join us at RPA Summit in September to hear from subject matter experts currently evaluating RPA for their businesses in areas such as Finance, Procurement, HR, Outsourcing, Automation, etc.


1.21GWS offers a great variety of training related to emerging technologies like Robotic Process Automation, Blockchain, Testing, DevOps, etc. For More Details,

Topic Abstract

When we embarked on this journey we naturally assumed that the "Robots" would take over the mundane high volume tasks.

The primary plan was not to change anything since robotics undertakes tasks at high speed. But we soon realised the benefits of having streamlined processes coupled with digitized forms.

Our processes were complex, unique and varied which made implementation quite challenging and time consuming. Today, we can however celebrate success with Robotics and realise the benefits of improved processes which enables smarter automation. Simar Kaur, Team Head, Shared Transaction Centre (STC)

Creating technological advance as a function of innovation is useful but all advance should be built and envisaged in relation to UI/UX and value add to end users. Robotics and automation as tools used to provision Identity and trust will underpin all economic growth of the future. This is informed by the idea that creating integrated systems that intelligently leverage data, AI and ultimately blockchain will create products and solutions we have not yet thought about. Decentralisation powered by automation is a philosophical as well as technological imperative if we are to realise the prosperity and growth web 2.0 promises to deliver.

Topic Abstract

Automation is a hot topic, especially considering the potential to improve business response time, accuracy, and efficiency. Like many business initiatives, RPA is often promoted as a way to boost return on investment or reduce costs. Because it's tempting to automate more processes than is necessary, companies often overlook the need to create a solid automation plan to ensure a positive customer experience.
