“110-140 million FTE’s could be replaced by automation tools
and software by 2020 ” – Mckinsey

How is RPA defined?
ABOUT RPA
• RPA refers to automation which interacts with a computer centric
process through the UI of the software which supports that
process and RPA is a subset of Business Process Service Delivery
Automation (BPSDA)
• Many technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), expert
systems and other process of automation have served
predecessors to RPA but RPA takes AI and expert systems to an
elevated level
• RPA is the use of computer to create a “virtualized FTE or robot”
to manipulate existing application software in the same way that a
person today processes a transaction or completes a process

RPA versus Traditional Re-engineering and BPM projects
Aspect RPA Traditional
Business Approach Focuses on replacement of FTEs
with a “virtualworker”; cost
reduction, quality improvement and
more productivity
Re-engineering of the underlying
process to drive efficiency and
create a more consistent
customer experience.
Technology approach To automate processes without
changing, replacing, compromising
or adding maintenance overhead
onto existing applications
Build new application to replace
existing; begin with
requirements definition leading
to design/development/testing
Process Approach Leave processes as it Transform and re-engineer
processes
Flexibility With machine learning can adjust If not defined, then will not be
able to support
Time to market Development and Testing
requirements are on very low end
Typically large scale efforts and
become capital expense efforts

RPA JOURNEY MAP
Assessing Robotic
Process
Automation
• Gain Understanding of RPA technology, benefits, shortcomings
• Evaluate Product Vendors
• Gain high level business support
• Identify opportunities and conduct several POC
Establish CoE
• Setup a CoE function for at least one LOB
• Provide consulting services to help LOB understand RPA,
benefits case and support deployments
• Establish dev environments and processes
Establish Scale
• Expand CoE to support company wide
• Develop Training programs to help business deploy rapidly
• Create integration frameworks and management dashboards
• Standardize security and release governance models
Embed RPA into
Normal Day to
Day
• RPA becomes part of the operational and technology fabric in
the company
• RPA becomes core to any new product development or project
• Virtual workforce becomes part any of annual planning activity
12
GETTING STARTED – HOW TO IDENTIFY OPPORTUNITIES
Suitability Analysis
• Functions /
processes viable for
RPA
• Potential savings on
migration
Benefits Analysis
• Quantitative – ROI,
ongoing, initial
costs
• Qualitative Reduced
error, faster
processing, etc.
Roadmap &
Prioritization
• Business priority
• Quick-wins
• POC
• Robotics COE
• Training
• Technology Plan
Cross-business assessment framework to evaluate RPA applicability
13
Analysis – Suitability & Potential Saving
• HC = Headcount
• Most suitable: Low complexity / volatility
and big headcount
• Suitable: low headcount / low complexity
• Potentially suitable: High complexity with a
high headcount
• Not suitable: High complexity and low
headcount
Suitability
Saving Potential
• HC Saving: Complexity factor*HC
• Support team: Volatility factor* HC
• Total HC Saving: HC saving – support team
Additional factors
• Robots work 24 hours/day without breaks
• Robots work faster than humans (2-3
times)
