One of the most significant ways in which medium to large enterprises can leverage technology to reduce cost and drive efficiencies is by adopting RPA – Robotic Process Automation. RPA is a bot driven software which enables the automation of repetitive system/business processes.
Up until recently, RPA was seen as a screen grab or macro only driven technology. However, this has now matured into a full enterprise offering, encapsulating artificial intelligence and predictive analytics.
Even though a bot can perform a set task, it is when a serious of bots come together to perform an entire process that the value is really seen; these are known as Digital Workers (DW).
Software vendors such as, UI Path, Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism and Redwood are leading the way in this Technology, each of which has their own “Academy” allowing resources to up skill.
A recent report from Gartner states that the uptake of RPA Technology across enterprises will be as below.
Roles such as
of enterprises have more than 50 bots in production. Therefore the demand for RPA skills over the next 5 years will grow exponentially.
Vertex has been growing its network of RPA experts since the turn of 2018 and along with its training partner Fudgelearn we have been growing this network as well as Training RPA Talent over and above that of the software vendors. Encouraging .Net and C# developers to make the transition to the latest Tech and BA’s from all walks of life to engage with the movement. Otherwise, there simply will not be enough personnel on the market to support the demand.
We would be very happy to discuss with you how we can support your RPA journey and provide the right resources, backed by a true understanding of the technology.
