RPA and How We Work
Robotic process automation (RPA) is already bringing great transformation to how a wide range of industries operate on a day-to-day basis. The technology is able to help companies execute various business activities quickly and accurately at reduced costs with less need for human intervention than ever before. As such, it has been suggested by some technology analysts that RPA has the potential to eventually replace the human workforce.
But is this suggestion actually viable? Can RPA software robots actually steal jobs currently being performed by humans? These “robots” are certainly coming, but they are not here to negate the need for humans in the workplace. Leading experts suggest the complete replacement of human employees by robots is not likely and that RPA is much more likely to contribute to job reallocation and even job creation. Additionally, many industry experts assert RPA will fundamentally alter the way human perform current job functions.
