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 April 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

In ANZ, 40% of the companies with 500+ employees have active RPA programs and the most of the others are in discovery phase. The overall RPA market is expected to grow at CAGR of 45-50% for the next three years.

With such high penetration we would expect that the best practices and common standards would already be established and, importantly, taken into consideration during the RPA program roll-outs. However, it is always surprising to see the same mistakes being repeated over and over again.

At Automation CoE we have defined three key areas that, if addressed properly, lead to significant uplift of the value generated through the RPA. In his presentation Peter will discuss the three areas and provide practical recommendations for your RPA programs.
