Automation

Just as industrial automation (robots) have revolutionized how work gets done across the manufacturing industry we are now seeing another automation revolution happening where any organization that uses labor on a large scale for general knowledge process work, where people are performing repetitive, high-volume, highly transactional process functions. The recent advances in robotic process automation (RPA), cognitive computing and artificial intelligence (AI) will fundamentally change how work gets done!
Virtualized FTE’s or digital labor is revolutionizing the way we think about and administer business processes, IT support processes, workflow processes, remote infrastructure and back-office work. The result will deliver significant cost savings as well as provide dramatic improvements in accuracy, reduced cycle times and increased productivity in transaction processing while it elevates the nature of work by removing people from dull, repetitive tasks.
Outsourcing as we know it will be forever changed, large enterprises are rethinking how work gets done, and every industry will be impacted.
