RPA enables digital leaders to execute business processes five to ten times faster, with an average of 37 percent fewer resources, according to a recent report by the Information Services Group (ISG).
Taking a wait-and-see approach with RPA is risky business, because RPA adoption is rising fast.
By 2019, 72% of enterprises will be leveraging RPA either in full production mode or in pilot testing to reduce costs, improve productivity and quality, increase compliance and compress transaction times, according to ISG.
Yet, the research shows that 40% of executives fear that their leaders don't understand the threat of RPA disruption, or are not responding to the challenge with an appropriate sense of urgency according to the Global Center for Digital Business Transformation.
