Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has been hailed as one of the great technological revolutions of our time. RPA has become a powerful tool for IT executives, but the implementation has been far from smooth for some. The ability to automate repetitive, rules-based tasks and create efficiency in meeting customer needs has been lauded for its potential to free employees to focus on higher value work and reduce enterprise costs. To some employees, the implementation of RPA is seen as a threat, and a ’job killer’ in traditional white collar fields like accounting and law. Please join us for a fascinating discussion by two of the leading practitioners in the area interviewed by SIM Board member Sigal Zarmi.
