The entire Robotic Process Automation (RPA) market faces broad, systemic challenges that can slow the scaling of automation.
According to Forrester, the RPA market will reach $2.9 billion by 2021. The rapid growth of RPA is happening alongside ecosystems that are becoming increasingly complex due to new technologies and harder to navigate thanks to new privacy regulations, legacy systems, and tighter budgets.
Organizations can’t overlook these challenges, and throwing technology at them won’t make them go away.
While a “how to scale your automation” playbook doesn’t exist, we’ve created a framework you can use to guide your growth. Every company is different, but this framework provides the spine for your digital transformation journey.
The following seven-pillar framework is based on systemic problems many companies encounter, along with common strategies they have shared. The route you take, however—from developing a vision to becoming an ‘automation first’ organization—is unique to you.
