Looking at RPA through a different lens
Blog 20/02/2019

This is the title of the presentation that our CMO Bob Weare will be presenting today at the IA Exchange in Berlin. Softomotive always likes to provide a fresh perspective on the RPA market and this is no different.

Bob will share insights from our global survey on RPA for growth companies, with a spotlight on the German market, especially how it compares with the rest of the world. For instance, the RPA market in Germany is more advanced than elsewhere with 57% of companies actively implementing RPA in some shape or form, compared to say India (51%) and the US (46%). There are some marked differences, for example, German companies prefer to deploy RPA on-premise (largely due to data security concerns), and compliance with regulation is a major driver to adopt RPA (ranks second in importance compared to 7th and 12th in the US and UK respectively).

9% of German companies say that their RPA program is stalled in some way which is twice as high as the global average (4%). Increasingly, there is more and more coverage that companies worldwide are struggling when it comes to scaling RPA in their business; and as Germany is a more mature market than the rest, the problem of stalled RPA programs looks like a trend that might be replicated elsewhere. If this becomes the case, it will put RPA under the microscope more so than ever before as a way to achieve meaningful business outcomes.

The second part of Bob’s presentation highlights the six reasons why the current approach to RPA is flawed and why a new way to deploy RPA is necessary. It will introduce the Softomotive People1st Approach to RPA which is designed to do just that and also outline the seven-step blueprint to adopt such an approach.
