RPA is changing the way companies operate. Globally significant efficiencies and competitive advantage are being realized by organizations embarking the RPA path. In simple language, RPA is a software that helps automate any repetitive, rule-based, and high-volume processes that either require human effort or are susceptible to human error and miscalculations. A software “robot” is used to capture the steps required to complete a process that may involve interacting with an application. The software works with the application in the same way as a human. The session highlighted how RPA is being implemented in organizations and the opportunities for companies in the long run.
The RPA session was led by Mr. Subish Ram, Director, Automation Central, EY GDS. Subish has been instrumental in setting up the RPA team within EY GDS.
