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.

Topic Abstract

The future world, not too far from our real life, would be full of autonomous robots: autonomous taxis, autonomous delivery vans, or even, autonomous chairs. One fundamental problem with robots being autonomous, is that, every robot needs to know
(1) where am I?
(2) Where am going?
(3) How do I get there? HERE Technologies, the global leading Open Location Platform company, is using Artificial Intelligence (AI), together with business partners, to speed up the building of a global coverage, high-definition, high refresh rate, content rich map, that enable the autonomous world and future location-based businesses.

Speaker Profile

Topic Abstract

One of the use cases of RPA is to read data from one application and input it into another application

Based on the process complexity, UI Complexity, and the data integration approach of the organization it may be prudent to consider an alternate approach such as APIs to move data and we present a framework comparing RPA vs APIs along these dimensions Adriel Frederick, Senior Consultant - Capital Market, Cognizant
Topic Abstract

Invoice Settlement in any industry is a cumbersome process that requires matching of what was quoted versus what was actually invoiced to enable payment processing. KoiReader enables invoice capture from any unstructured format into structured data to minimize the manual steps involved. RPA tools such as UIPath and BluePrism can then be utilized along with the output from KoiReader to make the reconciliation process seamless, freeing up working capital for organizations by drastically reducing the time to settle an invoice. The use case will specifically focus on Freight Invoice Settlement for the USD 8 trillion Logistics industry but the use case remains extensible to all other industries.
