with Robotic Process Automation
By Leslie P. Willcocks, john Hindle and Mary C. Lacity
Robotic Process Automation will continue its exponential growth over the next five years. With over fifty vendors; different kinds of RPA tools and platforms; generic applicability; and as a cognitive and AI platform, Robotic Process Automation has fast become an opportunity that is too good to miss.
How do you leverage the massive potential business value? Based on four years of research into hundreds of deployments, the book identifies the distinctive leading practices of front-runners, and a total value of ownership (TVO) framework to drive out value across the RPA life cycle. The central messages – think strategically, start right, institutionalize fast, innovate continuously - are demonstrated with multiple client experiences, challenges and lessons.
