Ways to convince Your Boss Ways to Save

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

IPA 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 IPA/RPA market grew 64 percent to $200 million last year and is expected to grow 70 to 90 percent by 2020 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 IPA Summit in May to hear from subject matter experts currently evaluating IPA for their businesses in areas such as Finance, Procurement, HR, Outsourcing, Automation, etc.

While Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) is often the first tool to garner investment as it leads to quick wins with a lower investment, IPA is only one tool in the automation toolbox, and this event covers the gamut of intelligent automation technologies including cognitive, machine learning, AI, and more.

Topic Abstract

While most companies are currently exploring Intelligent Process Automation, and a smaller number have implemented Proofs of Concept, relatively few have been able to successfully implement large scale automation programs with more than 25 or 50 bots across the enterprise.
This program will consider how companies have been able to cross the threshold from experimentation to industrialization of intelligent process automation and how they have experienced significant returns on investment and improvements to employee and customer satisfaction.
