  • Rewiring The Robots Within Your Organization

    Viewed as a strategic capability RPA revolutionizes how organisations can manage change, ensure compliance and create competitive edge. Rather than having employees smooth over the cracks between the organization’s “heritage” systems and the needs of its customer, what if you could add extra robotic capacity allowing you to free up people (to do the important stuff) while doubling the capacity of the firm at virtually zero cost? Wouldn’t that put some spice in your digital transformation strategy? Based on a comprehensive research study, this paper provides a step by step guide on how to successfully implement RPA.

  • A New Approach to Automating Services

    Companies are achieving productivity gains by using software robots to perform routine, rules-based service processes. If implemented well, such automation can result in high performing human-robot teams, in which software robots and human employees complement one another.

  • The next acronym you need to know about: RPA (robotic process automation)

    Robotics are beginning to have a profound effect on business. In this interview, Xavier Lhuer, an associate principal in McKinsey’s London office, speaks with Leslie Willcocks, professor of technology, work, and globalization at the London School of Economics’ department of management, about his work on robotic process automation—its impact on work, and how companies can capture its strategic and financial benefits.

  • Understanding Enterprise RPA - The Blue Prism Example

    David Chappell, a respected Silicon Valley technical guru has conducted a third-party technical analysis on Blue Prism enterprise RPA. This report discusses the characteristics of Enterprise RPA, the best approach for automating a business process, reuse, auditing, management and other aspects that an enterprise RPA provides that other types of RPA do not. The report concludes that Simple RPA technologies focus almost entirely on business users. API-based integration relies mostly on IT.

The papers explains what robotic automation is, what types of processes are suitable for this approach and how it is different from BPM initiatives. Forrester reaches the conclusion, amongst other key findings, that Robotic Automation complements BPM programs and should be rolled out using a CoE organizational form.

  • Framing a constitution for Robotistan

    Horses for Sources (HFS) have published a follow up report to their “Robots emerge as a threat to low cost outsourcing “published last year. The new report “Framing a Constitution for Robotistan” examines the opportunities for Robotic Automation for the BPO industry and its customers and how the adoption of robotic automation has significantly accelerated over the last 12 months. The report states “The Simple bottom line is that robotic automation is more than a technology trend: it is a different way to think about how business processes are solutioned, delivered, and managed.”
