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 2019 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 December 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 absolute essense of all information management and development discussions today is Data and Event Driven Architecture, or more simply Cloud Native. What if you had access to a platform that is optimized for Cloud Native Design while capable of operating in any public or private cloud; a foundation of stability for microservices. What if you could pause, migrate and resume any or all parts of your company on demand? Then you would have RPA operating as a governance framework providing the core enablement of Service Orchestrated Infrastructure.
