INTRODUCTION TO ROBOTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION AND HOW TO DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT IT IN YOUR ORGANIZATION
Robotic Process Automation is just like a tireless personal virtual assistant that allows people to focus on more creative and valuable tasks that can improve job satisfaction and overall performance of the organization.
Gartner has said that global spending on Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software is on pace to reach $2.4 billion in 2022, up from an estimated $680 million in 2018. The research firm Forrester estimates that there will be more than 4 million robots doing office, administrative, and sales work by 2021. RPA’s momentum is continuous and many businesses Asia have started to implementing automation. However, before you start to build your first robots, you need to think about strategic objectives of RPA, and how the business case can build to ensure long term success.
For RPA Projects, processes will differ from company to company, and there is not a single one-size-fits all approach. There are however a number of Automation RPA best practices that will help your organization start in the right direction. An RPA Strategy outlines the overall objectives of the organization and contains the business benefit an organization aims to achieve through automation. It addresses core organization aspect such as the organization setting, planning, roles and responsibilities. Additionally, the RPA Strategy should outline the Business Case for RPA, determining where necessary funding will be secured, and how the benefits of RPA can be quantified.
In this webinar, Jan-Willem Middelburg, Managing Director at Cybiant and author of the Service Automation Framework book, will discuss how organizations can start to formulate an RPA strategy, and what the core components of this strategy will need to be. In the second part of this webinar, we will review the financial aspects of the RPA strategy, and determine how a clear business case for RPA can be built.
