Robotic Process Automation

Now that robotic process automation has been a buzzword for a while, it’s descended from the Peak of Inflated Expectations into the Trough of Disillusionment for many.

UiPath has announced a new study conducted by Forrester Consulting, ‘The Future of Work Is Still Being Written, But Who Is Holding the Pen?’. 

RPA vendor Automation Anywhere has launched an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven process discovery solution that discovers business processes and creates bots to automate them with a single click.

Whether processes are being simplified, transformed or automated, they should be organised and controlled through solid Business Process Management (BPM). The workforce of the future will be a seamless blend of humans and machines doing those tasks they are more suited to. Whether it’s a human or digital pair of hands that’s actually completing the work, poor process management will only drive inefficiencies and errors.

Appian will add RPA capabilities to its low-code automation platform following the acquisition of Novayre Solutions SL, developer of the Jidoka RPA platform.

Automation Anywhere has announced updates to IQ Bot, RPA-integrated Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) solution that runs in the cloud or on-premise.

Large organizations have a lot on their plate today when it comes to digitization, cloud migration, data security and overcoming silos between back-office platforms. Ike Kavas, founder and CEO of Ephesoft, a provider of document capture and analytics technology, spoke with IDM about the ongoing challenge for companies seeking to automate their document processes.

ASG Technologies has announced its new digital automation platform, ASG-Zenith, that accelerates and simplifies digitization initiatives. ASG-Zenith creates a new approach to process automation and includes multiple technologies—such as business process management (BPM), robotic process automation (RPA) and policy and content privacy—united through ASG-Studio, a single, common, visual design environment.

One of Australia’s largest insurance companies, RACQ, has completed a project to enhance its claim processing using ABBYY content intelligence capabilities in tandem with UiPath’s robotic process automation (RPA) platform.

Fewer than one-third of finance departments that have deployed robotic process automation (RPA) have utilized the technology for financial reporting according to a survey by Gartner, which also found that they could have saved 25,000 hours of avoidable work annually.
