Today, there’s a growing consensus that the age of robotic process automation (RPA) has arrived, capable of significantly increasing operational efficiency, thus offering clear-cut cost, performance and scalability benefits. It seems it’s only a matter of time before RPA will eventually be leveraged in just about every industry, automating business processes with cognitive systems. In fact, while estimates for the RPA market are currently around $500 million, in the next years, the market is expected to exceed $1 billion! In fact, one estimate pegs just the North American RPA market at over $3.5 billion by 2024 (per Grand View Research). These numbers not only point to the increasing usage by companies that are finding value in virtual robots but to growing number of capable providers as well.
