How RPA Creates (Not Kills) IT Jobs


If you want to truly examine how robotic process automation (RPA) is changing the way in which the world works, you need look no further than the IT sector. As a burgeoning industry itself, IT is perhaps the first wave of industries in which RPA is thought be eliminating jobs – unjustly so. By automating repetitive and high volume business activities such as order processing or copy-paste tasks, RPA allows businesses to leverage the benefits of increased productivity and efficiency by freeing time for employees to focus on value-adding activities, such as those that involve direct interaction with clients or optimization of inefficient business processes.

For these reasons, it’s been suggested the abilities of RPA give the technology the potential to eventually replace the human workforce, IT jobs in particular. But leading experts tend to dismiss the topic of job displacement within the IT industry as well as in other fields, and the widespread consensus is that replacement of humans employees by robots is not the case.
