RPA Takes Centre Stage in 2019 :

IDM: What is RPA and why are large organisations globally embracing it?


Excitement about the potential for robotic process automation (RPA) to transform the workplace shows no signs of subsiding in 2019. What are the significant RPA trends and developments that can be expected this year? IDM asked Rob Mills, Vice President, Australia & New Zealand at Blue Prism for his perspective. Mills has a lengthy background in enterprise content, collaboration and information governance, and is looking forward to the arrival of true intelligent automation, what Blue Prism calls connected-RPA.

IDM: What is RPA and why are large organisations globally embracing it?

RM: Blue Prism coined the term Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in 2013 to describe the automation of manual processes by digital workers or software robots. These digital workers mimic the actions of real-life employees by capturing, querying and interpreting data, triggering responses and communicating with other digital systems. Put simply, it’s a digital workforce that offers assistance, opinions and insight to customers, staff and other digital systems. RPA can be used for relatively mundane data entry tasks but it is increasingly being used for more sophisticated processes that would previously have required the perception and judgement of humans when cognitive capabilities are added. This moves us into the world of ‘intelligent automation’ which I’ll explore in more detail later.
