Blue Prism predicts that more than four million robots will be performing office admin related tasks by 2021 – that’s just three years from now.
RPA is one of the foundation pillars for enterprise digital transformation in the Industry 4.0 landscape.
In a 2018 KPMG report, 53% of companies said that RPA would be a significant area of focus and investment in the next year, making it the number one area of focus for enterprises, ahead of Cloud (44%) and Internet of Things (41%).
RPA will completely shift the computing landscape, with one digital worker’s output being equivalent to three FTEs.
However, it is the quality, scalability and agility that has more enterprises interested in RPA, with only 7% reporting a benefit being a reduction in FTE.
Enormous opportunity to reignite economy
DDLS CEO Jon Lang said the new partnership strengthens the company’s ability to play a major role in digital transformation in Australia.
Automation adoption through AI and robotics is an enormous opportunity to reignite momentum in Australia’s economy, a 2019 McKinsey & Company report finds.
While job loss is frequently touted as a casualty of automation, the findings show there will be new opportunities for workers to learn new skills and occupy roles that are yet to be defined.
“Expert training and education are critical components of any intelligent automation engagement,” said Rob Mills, vice president of Blue Prism ANZ.
“DDLS will help ensure more Australian organisations are able to realise the transformative potential Blue Prism’s technology delivers,” he said.
DDLS will launch its new Blue Prism Foundation course this month.
