As for RPA, the advantages of robotic process automation, and how it can be orchestrated were widely discussed topics during the month. Evan Kirstel, chief digital evangelist at eVira Health, a marketing and advertising agency offering consulting and product development services, shared an article on how RPA, a cloud-based SaaS technology, enables companies to create, deploy, as well as manage software robots that can imitate human behavior using software and digital systems.
Many companies across industries have stated that RPA helps drive rapid improvements in their business metrics. RPA not only streamlines workflows but does away with redundant and repetitive tasks. Advanced software robots deployed through RPA are considered to be transformative because they can perform cognitive functions such as understanding chats, tasks, and conversations while employing complex machine learning to make difficult decisions.
JC Gaillard, founder and managing director of Corix Partners, a management consultancy firm, further discusses how RPA has become more difficult to comprehend as it expands to more complex domains. Organizations, therefore, find it difficult to take decisions on RPA on where it should be implemented although the technology has been particularly helpful in managing the pandemic. For instance, Automation Anywhere, an RPA company, helped healthcare centers develop bots as well as automated a number of repetitive tasks.
