The ‘automation first’ era has arrived, and companies around the world are rapidly adopting the technologies that have come with it. In fact, 90% of businesses today use technology to automate mundane processes and drive efficiency, according to The Economist Intelligence Unit.
But, in many cases, businesses can’t compensate for the technical knowledge gaps that often go with these new tools. Many company leaders and IT experts find themselves learning the dos and don’ts of automation via trial and error. This can result in automation initiatives stalling out before their strategies can scale. It’s no surprise, then, that only three percent of companies have scaled beyond 50 robots and tackled their long-term automation goals.
