Robotic Process Automation

It’s Not Scary: How to Successfully Implement RPA

Is your organization haunted by manual processes, siloed departments and legacy systems? Face down those deadly problems with the automation tool that Frank Casale, founder of the Institute for Robotic Process Automation & Artificial Intelligence (IRPAAI), calls “the new digital version of the white-collar worker.”

Analysts named 2016 “the year of the robot,” and through 2017 we’ve seen successful robotic process automation deployments in industries like banking, insurance, logistics and shared services groups.

This up-and-coming technology automates everything from invoice portal information retrieval to customer due diligence checks for banks. The flexibility of a secure, scalable RPA platform that can be deployed not just as a point solution, but across the organization, is a draw for large enterprises and shared services organizations in particular.

However, precisely because RPA is such a flexible solution with hundreds of use cases across industry verticals and horizontals, it’s easy to be infected with paralysis by analysis: Where do we start? What’s next?

And, finally, How can we leverage the full capabilities of an enterprise robotic process automation solution to digitally transform a global enterprise and deliver ongoing business value?

Listen as David B. Kirk, Ph.D., Managing Director, Digital Labor / Robotic Process Automation, KPMG, moderator Frank Casale, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of the IRPAAI and myself discuss discuss RPA early adoption success stories, including these key topics:

  • Ideal use cases—and those to avoid: When embarking on an RPA journey, it’s critical to identify one to two use cases with obvious business benefits rather than try to boil the ocean from the start.
  • How to shift RPA from tactical discussion to strategic corporate priority: Establishing best practices in a Center of Excellence for security, governance, oversight and management is critical for long-term success.
  • Why the right robotics team will ensure success today and in the future: RPA is a cross-functional platform, and both business and IT users, specialists and managers have seats at the table.
  • The importance of charting your RPA path beyond the Proof of Concept (POC): Choosing an initial use case is key to gaining a quick win with RPA, but some organizations get stuck in a proof of concept phase and can’t seem to gain momentum to expand beyond the POC.

Get answers to these questions and more. Listen to the recording of this interactive discussion with leading experts in robotic process automation at your convenience.
