Continuous improvement and automation is top of mind for enterprises and industry analysts today. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is an increasingly important strategic initiative - starting with automating repetitive, rules-based processes. Among those that have already implemented RPA, automating unstructured processes like emails and customer interactions
is the next step.

The Robotic Process Automation (RPA) market is exploding. Sales of RPA software between 2016 and 2022 are predicted to rise almost 60% annually at a time when enterprise software budgets are increasing at just 4.1% each year.

Cognitive AutomationA lot of noise and confusion surrounds cognitive automation due to marketing FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) being thrown up by different vendors. In this blog, I want to share insights Automation Anywhere has acquired after participating in hundreds of proof-of-concepts (POCs) and dozens of successful cognitive automation implementations with our customers.

As my colleague Derek Toone noted in a recent blog, many enterprises that attempt to transform their operations using a digital workforce hit an ROI brick wall when they start to scale their RPA initiatives. The chief culprit is their failure to achieve “bot velocity,” defined as the continuous cadence and pace at which automated processes are developed and placed in production using bots.

One of the most critical enablers of bot velocity is a well structured and staffed RPA COE (Center of Excellence).

On June 14, 2017, Automation Anywhere’s chief marketing officer, Gary Conway, and principal product manager, Kelly Coupe, hosted an interactive webinar featuring David Jones and Edna Ezzell of our partner, Accenture. Entitled “Introducing IQ Bot,” our hour-long webinar focused on how artificial intelligence-based “bots” used in robotic process automation (RPA) were being enhanced with cognitive capabilities, and what that meant for today’s businesses.

Webinar participants were encouraged to send us their questions during the presentation. We are pleased to provide the answers.

Government Intelligent Automation ForumThis idea isn’t as far fetched as you may think. And robotic process automation (RPA) and cognitive computing are the capabilities that are enabling the federal government to lead this charge. 

For those of you in doubt, look no further than KPMG’s June 6 Government Intelligent Automation Forum as evidence of the direction our federal agencies are taking. Discussions throughout the event focused on how a digital workforce can help improve the federal government’s workplace, while also retaining skilled labor in the midst of aggressive private sector hiring.
