Jane Youdell, Head of Operations at Genfour, discusses the enchancements that Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies bring to Robotic Process Automation (RPA) through the adoption of Autonomic Computing (AC). Jane also gives examples of the types of processes that can be automated through AI.
The role of robotic process automation is expanding, with an increased focus on all parts of the back, middle and front office. Automation of rules based processes can be found in almost any organisation, but especially those with large volumes of transactional data from multiple sources. They can be found in amongst teams and individuals that:-
Here are our top 6 examples of where you should deploy Robotic Process Automation (RPA) :
1) In your webinar you discussed innovative approaches to Robotic Process Automation (RPA). Can you please tell us how you see these evolving over the next few years?
As we continue on with our blog series 'What is Robotic Process Automation' in this article we explore some of the significant implications for organisations as they consider growing their RPA capability:
Whilst there are many benefits to deploying Robotic Process Automation we've summarised the top 20:
What would you do if you had access to twice as many staff at half the cost?
This has been the opportunity presented through offshoring work over the last decade or so. The evidence tells us you’d do the same things you do today, only cheaper. You might also do one or two more things that you weren’t able to do before. However, there are drawbacks. By the time you have installed the additional management structures, added the necessary checking and quality resources and offset the inflation and currency risk there’s not so much to play with. However, according to recent surveys by Horses for Sources, you’ll be left wanting in three key areas:
1) access to more innovation
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is emerging as an alternative to using people (either onshore or offshore) to perform back office administrative work. Using software robots that mimic the actions of people, tasks can be completed faster, more accurately, and at a fraction of the cost.
