UiPath Published the Findings of a Report Based on Interviews with Enterprise CIOs in Europe

The “Towards The Fully Automated Enterprise™” report was authored by CIONET to understand CIOs’ role in orchestrating the reinvention of business and the redesign of work. CIONET is the leading community of more than 10,000 senior IT executives in Europe and Latin America. The report was developed in partnership with the top RPA vendor UiPath and it’s based on interviews with CIOs from 15 leading Europe-based enterprises. Yesterday, UiPath shared the findings of the report on its website so we can share with you our digest of them today.

The findings reveal that hybrid work, increasing demands from customers, and challenges from the new competition are driving organizations to automation-first strategies built on RPA, AI, and low-code and no-code tools.

CIOs reported the significant changes caused by the pandemic on business practices are resulting in implementations of enterprise automation to achieve replacement of legacy systems with modern solutions (29%), comprehensive process reengineering (26%), and elimination of repetitive work with RPA (24%).

The report also highlights that the benefits of adopting intelligent automation are available only to those businesses in which CIOs become sponsors of innovation and proponents of governance and involve the IT organization as early as possible. The CIOs stated that intelligent automation will play a key role in leveling the playing field between incumbents and digital leaders during the next five years.

Respondents shared that currently, the adoption of automation is still at an early stage of maturity, with a lot of potential remaining untapped. Deployment strategies include applying short-term fixes to reduce costs and speed up critical processes, adopting an evolutionary approach and saving major disruption while generating business benefits, and taking radical action such as replacing legacy systems entirely or adopting new solution models.

CIOs play a pivotal role in driving the adoption of intelligent automation across the enterprise. Having achieved successful cloud and mobile platform migrations, the CIOs surveyed believe that automation is set to become “their next big thing.”
