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

Robotic process automation (RPA) has been found to be useful for tasks that involve structured digital data, follow pre-defined rules and need minimal decision making. But in a not-so-perfect world, some data may be unstructured. Some scenarios are so diverse that there are hundreds or thousands of combinations and decision points. Rules may be difficult to define at times. Will your RPA project then be doomed for failure? Bring in A.I. (artificial intelligence) to complement the conventional RPA features, so that you can handle more than just simple structured data and simple decision making. This talk will shed light on how you can harness the prowess of A.I. to make RPA projects cover greater scope to bring more impact and success.

Analysts predict that disruptive technologies like Robotic Process Automation, or RPA, could potentially automate the work of 110-140 million FTEs (Full Time Equivalent) by 2025. RPA is a new breed of technology that promises to be easily scalable, increase efficiency and reduce cost, but a correspondingly high risk of failure if not efficiently implemented. The success of any RPA initiative depends on the depth, detail, and feasibility of its implementation plan and the commitment of the organization towards its timely execution.

This talk summarizes seven lessons which C-Suite must know about RPA – a technology utterly different than others to date
