IVIS-38; Robotic Process Automation #RPA = #outsourcing game changer…

Next Step: Directly from the Institute for Robotic Process Automation (IRPA) white paper, “Here Come the Robots…” ( Here Come the Robots ), “Take the initiative to educate yourself and your peers as to what RPA is, who’s doing it, who the experts are and who the providers are.  You should insist that your current providers embrace RPA and transform their model so that you may gain the benefits sooner versus later.”

The content in this Outsourcing Institute (OI) white-paper was evangelized in a recent OI roadshow session where Thomas Young of ISG presented (see session summary notes in an earlier blog posting, at http://wp.me/p3oZLx-1Uc or search for keyword “arbitrage.”).  Effectively, the argument being made is that RPA is already here, with incredible impact being predicted from its growing use:

  • “…will obliterate traditional outsourcing model as we know it…”
  • “…will touch 230 million knowledgeworkers…9% of the global workforce…”
  • “…potential to deliver an immediate savings of 25-40% of labor costs…”
